Chakra Bleu hits #1; releases new dance single


By Dave Carew

These are exciting times for beloved pop/rock/Americana artist Chakra Bleu. Her tune “All of Me” just hit #1 on New Music Weekly’s Top 40 Indie Chart, while simultaneously climbing into the Top 10 on the NMW Mainstream Top 40 and Hot 100 Singles Charts.

Released on April 18, the single has been relentlessly edging up the charts, and now has received thousands of radio spins. The hit tune was co-produced by Chakra Bleu and John Billings, a former bass player for the legendary Donna Summer. The accompanying video (check it out on YouTube) was produced by Ray Boone of Music City Video.

If you think “Bleu” is content to do nothing but bask in the glow of a #1, you would be mistaken. She recently released the follow-up to “All of Me,” the dance tune “When We Dance.” A press release from her label described the tune as “a magnetic, pulsing recording that captures the timeless, passionate moment of a couple dancing closely together on the dance floor.”

If you dig that feeling, you’ll likely dig this tune.
