"Louise Chantál: R&B Artist + Prince$$ Of Aranbi"

Louise Chantál is an independent artist who is changing the world by creating one of her own. Being passionately concerned about the lack of accurate representation of women of color in the media is what lead LC to create the world of Aranbi, which she describes as a place that will be for the misrepresented or underrepresented to have a voice. The Prince$$ of Aranbi is also a Queen of Underground R&B, racking up over a million plays collectively on her original songs and mashups via Soundcloud. With those numbers, it’s evident that Louise Chantál has a talent for singing and songwriting… But her musical abilities haven’t always come natural to her.

"Louise Chantál"

She comes from a line of strong Guyanese and Bajan women with her father’s English blood accompanying the mix. Even now, at the peak age of 20, Louise Chantál knows her place in the world. Taking matters into her own hands at such a young age prepared her for where she’s headed: stardom. And with the music industry being a revolving door of new faces, immense diversity and endless potential, Louise Chantál found herself nurturing her talent to a point where other industry affiliates began pursuing her early on, but they’d have to be just right for her.

“I feel like most of my career has been intuition. From age 16-18 I spent time in meetings with producers, A&Rs, managers, this person or that person, recording, trying stuff; seeing if I wanted to commit — literally jumping from person to person. So, majority of that time I was trying to make a connection that felt right, and knowing someone truly believed in me because there will be plenty of people who see you, but often times they’ll see through you and I’ve always been a very determined person, so if I didn’t believe in it, I wasn’t going to do it. And then there are the politics of the industry. As a woman I knew I had to stand my ground. Women have to be this and they have to be that; we have to be all these different things just to be considered to be equal, and I care too much about whether or not they see me as intellectual rather than this pretty image. It’s like the moment you care about your hair and make-up they look at you like you’re dumb or you can’t be multi-dimensional.”

A resilient young woman, protecting her worth. At just 18 years old Louise Chantál found herself juggling the roles of artist and manager. After years of trials and tribulations with different A&Rs, producers and potential managers, she realized if she wanted to be the star she is meant to be, she had to take the reins of her career to prove her worth as an artist and woman. As industry heads saw her potential as an artist, they quickly learned she was also an asset to the backend of music which led them to solicit the idea of her as a songwriter.

“I’m an artist; that is what I am, that is what I want to be, and due to those differences in direction, we had to part ways – all on great terms, but I had to be sure I did what I knew was best for me. And I feel like that’s where I am right now – working towards that luxury.” - Femme Feature

"Louise Chantál Channels Marilyn Monroe In Her Video For 'CalNeva'"

It’s a common misconception that the more beautiful you are, the more immune to heartbreak you become. In the new music video for her heartbreakingly sensual single ‘CalNeva’, NY-based RnB songstress Louise Chantal challenges this misconception by breathing life into history’s greatest affair.

Here’s what Louise Chantal had to say about it:

“CalNeva was inspired by Marilyn Monroe and the alleged affair between Monroe and John F. Kennedy. From around 1960 to 1963, Frank Sinatra owned Cal Neva Resort & Casino. Before writing this song, I read about how Sinatra loved to entertain his friends; both of which were Monroe and The Kennedy Family. I was fascinated by that dynamic so I just kept reading more stories about their relationship. Somehow in the midst of reading I created a fantasy in my head and connected that to the emotion that I really wanted to convey through this song. CalNeva is a love letter written by a broken hearted woman, and anyone that has experienced betrayal and disappointment can relate to this story.”

‘CalNeva’ reveals the fragile exterior underneath the flawlessly beautiful women society puts on a pedestal. Just like Marylyn before her, Louise Chantal may wear a crown, but she bleeds in crimson red. Get ready to feel all of the things. - Galore Magazine

"Louise Chantál Shares A Story of Heartbreak in Her "CalNeva" Video"

Louise Chantal welcomes us back into her world with the visual for her latest love ballad “CalNeva.” The United Kingdom native continues to garner more attention with her tunes of love, vulnerability, and passion. This latest track, much like the previous, is just as enchanting. Noting Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and John F. Kennedy as sources of inspiration, Chantal proves her lyricism is just as intoxicating as her voice.

In an interview with Galore she shares, “Frank Sinatra owned Cal Neva Resort & Casino. Before writing this song, I read about how Sinatra loved to entertain his friends: both which were Marilyn Monroe and The Kennedy Family … Somehow in the midst of reading I created a fantasy in my head and I connected that to the emotion that I really wanted to display in this song. CalNeva is a love letter written by a broken hearted woman, and anyone that has experienced betrayal and disappointment can relate to this story.”

Creatively, Louise is a breath of fresh air. Watch the video above, and take a stroll through Aranbi with Louise Chantal. We’re so excited to see what moves she’ll make in the year to come. - Saint Heron

"Traveling Between Worlds with Louise Chantál"

Louise Chantál, a.k.a Princess of Aranbi, 19, is alleviating the world with her music. The London-bred, New York-based artist of Guyanese and Bajan descent is armed with vision, wisdom and devotion. Captivating the world with her ethereal vocals she gears up to release her Welcome to Aranbi EP.

Investing her soul into music since the age of 12, Chantál has created a platform to uplift people in an optimistic way as she shares with us her gift. “Music has healed me in so many ways. I would like to heal other people in return,” Chantál says. This simple, yet profound statement is her entire existence for being. Battling through certain ordeals has given the artist the curative powers to give others the same strength.

Unveiling cinematic sounds, she invites us into a different world, Aranbi (pronounced R&B), which signifies an immaculate sanctuary where her listeners will feel in tune. Aranbi is a personal space to reflect. “I am attempting to stimulate imaginations by bringing people out of their bodies and pushing their minds to see things that they aren’t thinking about; to see the world and color in a different way,” Chantál says.

“Genuflect” is the rebirth of your body, mind and spirit after a heartbreak. With vehement lyrics and dramatic strings, “Genuflect” is an anthem and it is meant to empower. In this song Chantál garners the stance to move forward while letting her listeners know that they are not alone in this journey. “Transforming from a Queen to a King of Hearts,” she angelically sings on her musical debut.

“The emotion and themes that I reference in my songs are from my personal experiences, but if you were to listen to “Genuflect,” or my entire EP for that matter, you would hear and see that I’m bringing people into another world, Aranbi,” Chantál explains.

In her LCLive Episode 1, Chantál delves into the meaning behind her lyrics for “Genuflect” further by beautifully revealing, “I claim my heartbreaks because it means that I’m living and experiencing life.”

Chantál disclosed that listeners can also expect to hear production from Syience, Snagz, J Sounds and Ken Will for her Welcome to Aranbi EP. Sonically sharing her journey, Chantál is also poised to accomplish so much more with the visuals for this project. “I can’t wait for you guys to see what I’m talking about. I feel like a crazy person rambling about what’s going on in my head,” she confesses.

Having an eclectic taste in music, Chantál is inspired by Stromae, Sia, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé. In the near future, she would love to collaborate with Ariana Grande.

Although letting go and accepting has been a challenge, the young vocalist has been able to surpass each impediment. Chantál’s antidote has always been the nectar of music and traveling between worlds it is here were she finds her tranquility. - Artsy Magazine

Very minimal in production compared to her last track, the rhythmic and blues J Soundz produced cut showcases more of more of her vocal range and ability to craft a well-rounded record. As the title would suggest, Louise draws inspiration on this one from one of our singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/actors, Prince. But this isn’t just any normal ode to Prince, the newcomer eloquently sends a message to the stars above asking to open her heart and soul to have the courage to love again after being deceived. - Ashley Outrageous

Chantál Louise Cassandra Greatorex, professionally known as Louise Chantál, and Chan by her loved ones, was born to a Afro-Caribbean mother and English father on December 9th, 1995 in Norbury, London, England. Gifted by her parents the names: Louise, meaning famous warrior, in honor of her late paternal grandmother and Chantál, meaning to sing or singer, it's evident that it was written in the stars for Louise Chantál to be a feminist, vocal powerhouse, and internationally known pop star. Your typical girl-next-door doesn’t come close to the stardom Louise Chantál is brewing as she holds the full package of beauty, brains and a powerful message to women all over the world.

Chantál tells her story how she lives it: audaciously, purposefully, and artistically. She is the youngest of 10 siblings—biological and adopted—yet the only child conceived by her mother and father. While Chan was a young child, her mother decided to move to America in order to be closer to her immediate family who had begun migrating from Georgetown, Guyana to the United States of America. They settled in Montclair, New Jersey. It was then that the complex and unconventional dynamics of Chantál's family, both genealogically and geographically, began to unfold.

The cultures of London, England, Georgetown, Guyana, and Montclair, New Jersey fused together to create a woman that is not only cultured with an eclectic taste in music and art, but is also forward thinking and resilient due to hardships she has faced as the point of intersection within a family divided by race, religion, immigration, infidelity and class. In the midst of two polar opposite halves attempting to collide, Chantál felt the friction. She watched words and actions become lost in translation, and as depression crept its way in she yearned to find her own voice.

At the young age of 12, Louise Chantál found that voice by following her heart as she began pursuing her dreams of becoming a professional singer. She started writing and recording remixes to Pop, R&B/Soul, and Rap radio hits and soon after began posting them on Facebook and YouTube. Through her self-made music videos, Chantál quickly captured the attention of the Facebook and YouTube community online. By age 16, she had accumulated 300,000 YouTube views and, under a small independent production company based in New Jersey, released two EPs and a mixtape. But it was at the age of 18, while attending New York University's Clive Davis Recorded Music Program, that Chantál's story took its most exciting turn when she decided to take control of her career by rebranding and ridding herself of the childhood moniker she'd created, and embracing her birth name.

She landed her first big break into the music industry when she met Atlantic Records' A&R, Walter Randall who introduced her to the critically acclaimed grammy award winning producer Syience. After watching a live performance video of Chantál's “Genuflect,” produced by one of Swiss Beatz production partners Snagz, Syience was immediately blown away by her songwriting capabilities and soon signed on to executively produce the rising pop star's debut project, Welcome to Aranbi. 

In the midst of recording Welcome to Aranbi, Chantál made no hesitation to jump headfirst into fashion, not only as a model, but also as a creative director. In the last six months alone, Chantál has modeled for some of the hottest brands to date, such as ELLE, Joyrich, the Matte Brand, and Valfre. In addition to modeling, she's also directed editorials featured in respected publications, such as Galore, Saint Heron, MISSBISH, SVGE, and Lady Gunn. As proclaimed by Saint Heron, Louise Chantál is "creatively, a breath of fresh air." Whether it be writing her own music, executively producing her debut project, directing all of her music videos and promotional content, or outlining the marketing rollout behind every release, Louise Chantál is a true example of self-success and has created a foundation for every creative that surrounds her to follow.

On December 9th, 2016 Louise Chantál released Welcome to Aranbi on iTunes and all streaming platforms through her own entertainment company, Aranbi. When speaking of her mixtape, she says, "W.T.A. consists of 9 songs, excluding interludes, divided into 3 parts in order to best share the distinctive ways in which Pop, R&B, World Music and feminism have impacted me throughout my life as a woman of color and led me to create a new world, which you will first experience through sound." W.T.A. is a concept mixtape and Louise Chantál's introduction to the world as a performance artist. The personas visualized on the cover of the project are three faces of Louise created to represent the many women within Chantál. With over a million streams on Soundcloud and YouTube combined, there is no doubt Aranbi is a world both women and men alike are looking to enter.
