B+

Details Release Date: Nov 30, 2010; Lead Performance: Chrisette Michele; Genre: R&B

Self-confidence is a recurring theme on Let Freedom Reign, the singer’s follow-up to chart-topper Epiphany. ''I’m a star,'' Michele announces on one track, only to add, ''I’m a beautiful queen,'' ''I’m so cool'' and ''I’m still a winner'' on three other tunes. We don’t blame her. Her assured performances on 
 this disc — whose crisp, understated backdrops leave her timelessly sleek voice with room to shine — give her plenty to be proud of. B+
