Choice Cut: Chantae Cann and PJ Morton find a "Crater" Love

It is tough to avoid smiling when you hear Chantae Cann sing. She emerged on the scene a few years ago with a number of amazing guest performances featuring her unique vocal stylings, and completely won us over with her 2016 album Journey to Golden.

Chantae has since returned with a new album that reeled us in further. Sol Empowered reached #8 on Billboard Jazz Charts earlier this year, and has been a hit with soul fans too. And she has now released a new, animated video for her wonderful duet with longtime SoulTracks fave and Maroon 5 member, PJ Morton.

“Craters” is perfect in its sparse arrangement that allows the artists' performances to shine up front. In his review of Sol Empowered, our Howard Dukes called the song “about a love that is both natural and necessary.” The overall collaboration between Morton and Chantae was established when she first began recording music. As she says, “For us to be able to come back to it all these years later is just amazing to me! His iconic voice compliments ‘Craters’ perfectly and adds just the right amount of contrast to complete the album beautifully.”  When reflecting on recording with Chantae for her new album, Morton states, “Well, Chantae has always been a favorite of mine so when she called, it was a no brainer. I'm happy I finally get to be on something of hers!”  

It would be too bad a pun to say that this was a match made in the heavens, but it sure sounds like it. And we’re proud to present the song and video for “Craters” as our new SoulTracks Choice Cut. If you've heard Chantae, you know why we’re featuring this. If you don’t know her, now is the time to meet this stunning performer. Check out “Craters” below, and enjoy!
