Let’s hear it for good times and even greater music! Yes, the indie world is buzzing in part thanks to one rising star and dynamic artists, MISStress! MISStress has been in the Atlanta music scene for awhile making a name for herself with catchy singles, hardcore lyrics, and a desire for greatness matched by few other artists–independent or mainstream! Now The Muses have heard us and they are back with new music and a hot, new album in Missundastood!

MISStress sent over two of her newest tracks, Panties On The Floor and What You Gone Do to us and we have to admit they have been in circulation on our phones and in our cars throughout the day. Everthing just flows when it comes to the songs, giving us a Trina meets City Girls kind of vibe. MISStress stands out, however, in being a non-gender confirming artist, living their truth. However, even though they do not identify as transgender, they support and love all members of the LGBT family. “I’ve been doing music for about six years now and it is as much a part of my life as anything else. This album is one a lot of people can relate to because we have all in some way, fashion, or form been misunderstood or misjudged…I want people to continue getting to know the real me through my music and just know there’s nothing any of us can do if we put our minds to it.”

Missundastood is lined with a number of bops, and we definitely have a wider scope of who MISStress is and how they operate. You cannot help but admire someone who is so brave, beautiful, and most unapologetic. Courage is always a good look, and they wear it well!

You can stream Missundastood on all music streaming platforms and datpiff.com as well! Happy Listening!

“Ghosted,” as defined by Psychology Today, “is having someone that you believe cares about you, whether it be a friend or someone you are dating, disappear from contact without any explanation at all.”  This is a term many people, especially millennials know all too well. In fact, if you watched the third season of HBO’s Insecure, the series’ protagonist, Issa [Rae], was ghosted on by Nathan (Kendrick Sampson) the first guy she was ready to be in a relationship with. Chris’s Ghosted definitely touches on the sorrow and confusion that comes from left in the wind.

Check out the lyrics below:

We have to say we love this song! Unfortunately, after being ghosted on a few times it is all too relatable. The confusion, angst, sorrow, pain…it’s all there. This should definitely be on some millennial show. Maybe BET’s new hit, Boomerang? Chris has confirmed he does have a full fledged album coming soon. If his other tracks are as moving as this one we will be sure to listen and have some Kleenex on hand. Congrats Chris!
