CHEL doesn’t care if you’re going to talk about her; in fact, she encourages it.
CHEL is debuting “My Name,” an anthem that celebrates self-confidence, exclusively on Billboard today (Nov. 8).
With “My Name,” the St. Louis, Mo. native tackles the haters and critics that have bashed her for most of her life, by taking ownership of her name and all of the confidence that comes along with it. “I spent most of my life killing myself over what people thought of me,” CHEL tells Billboard. “I listened as people used my name as their punch line. At some point in my life, I decided to take back control and to own who I am.”
