Concrete Hearts caught up with YMCMB Artist and former American Idol runner up Chris Richardson earlier this week as he was doing promo for his latest single “Joy & Pain” which features label mate Tyga. They discussed his childhood connection with music, his current situation at Young Money as well as what it was like to meet Birdman & Lil Wayne for the first time. Below you can find some things that you may not know about Chris Richardson as well as our interview with him.
- He is a Virigina Beach Native.
- Signed to Cash Money Records / Republic Records.
- Made his Cash Money debut on Tyga’s “Far Away” – http://youtu.be/xBIfffmQR-4
- Top 5 Contestant on American Idol Season 6.
- Describes his sounds as “It’s blue-eyed soul, but there’s an organic feel to the music. I love to mix the soulful and rock sides.”
Chris is truly humble and is very focused on his music more than the glitz and the glam in the industry & we definitely admire that. With his career taking off, he is gaining a lot of hype and at the same time gaining new fans on his journey to releasing his debut album on Cash Money. The album title and due date has yet to be revealed but expect it sometime very early next year.
Signed, Sealed & Delivered,
