In life everyone has a story. Everyone has something that differentiates them from any other person. But Detroit artist Chanel Mone’s (Shanell Wilson) story is a special one. Raised on the city’s Eastside Chanel is the oldest of Mother’s 6 children (4 brothers and one deceased brother). Her mother had her at the young age of 13, so Shanell was already born against all odds... As a child she would move from house to house with her mom so it was difficult to build friendships with people because she didn’t know how long the friendships would last. As a child Shanell had an interest in fashion but couldn’t afford the clothes that she desired.
At the age of 12 Chanel gained the inspiration to want to be in the music industry seeing the hard work Artist from her neighborhood was putting in to become a star on the Detroit music scene.
In songs such “Heavy Talk” Chanel displays her lyrical ability speaking on her upbringing and hardships in life, while also expressing her affection for fashion ($700 for the shoes man I get to really tripping)...
In her New Single “Real Good” the Detroit Phenom brags about her glamorous Features with a Unique twist to “Salt N Pepa” (Push It). This Single is Produced by Detroit’s Legendary Producer Helluva.
It’s safe to say that the future of Detroit music is in great hands as long as Chanel Mone has a grip on it.
