With all of this, Chartel, is finally ready to share her music with the world. “I am excited to share my point of view as a songwriter with this single and music that is yet to come. I’m a very contemplative, introspective person and I hope that listeners will hear that and connect with it.” Of her debut single she says, “At its core, ‘Make Up Your Mind to Love’ is an admittedly ambitious declaration of unwavering love for someone who hasn’t quite shown the same in return…” The track produced by Scottishh of Matrax Productions in Philadelphia “started off as a torch song,” says the singer, “but somehow in the writing process it became an them–my anthem–celebrating the qualities that make love wonderful when it is constant and intentional.”
