is on a mission to present truth to this generation, and she's equipped to do just that with intense lyricism and her own unique style. Her latest release is titled Prinzess Diary: 1
, and it serves as a great introduction to this rising artist.
What it Sounds Like:
At the intersection of pop and rap you will find Chè Sarai's album Prinzess Diary: 1. Her lyrics and delivery are smooth, making it apparent that she fits right into the genre.
Prayer, forgiveness of sins, and spiritual healing are all main focuses. Chè Sarai raps about how it's important to pray until something happens, because this life isn't easy. She emphasizes that our sins are forgiven and forgotten by God, and they do not define you. Chè Sarai adds her voice to the #MeToo campaign with her track "Me Too." Whether it is her story or the story of someone else, it brings to light to the fact that even Christians are not immune from sexual assault. She also brings attention to the importance of "Mental Health Awareness."
The album does come with a note of caution for some listeners, as her track "Regulate It" uses a quote from the movie Young Guns seeming to infer that Satan is "d**n good" at taking things that don't belong to him so Christians need to pay attention.
Best Song on the Record:
"Complete Feat. Ikea Wilson" ultimately talks about how people can be made whole in Christ. This track also touches on the importance of reaching those who might otherwise be unreached by the church because they're the outcasts of society. It says that Christ is able to complete everyone, no matter where they are in life.
Lyrically, there are tough topics addressed, which tends to be a hallmark of hip-hop. The topics themselves are very important to talk about, and Chè Sarai presents them in a way that will reach a number of people while including the hope we find in Christ.
