When Chamillionaire joined me inside the DJBooth for an interview this past December, we discussed his decision to leak Creepin’ (Solo), the first single off his forthcoming third studio album, Venom. While the record and its The Game-assisted re-release both spent many weeks atop our DJBooth Top Picks chart, urban radio has not been so friendly. Unlike most artists, however, the Houston native has what it takes to turn his situation around. On potential single Relax, producer Happy Perez, whose résumé includes work on Cham’s sophomore LP, Ultimate Victory, provides some poppy production and J. Holiday serves up some soulful guest vocals. Though Cham claims “Venom is not as friendly as people are used to,” the female-oriented, radio-readyRelax is exactly what the Mixtape Messiah needs to return to the charts (and to score a release date for his forthcoming project).
