James Wright Chanel

YouTube star James Wright Chanel‘s 15 minutes are winding down. Chanel became an overnight sensation when he sang the praises of Patti LaBelle‘s high calorie sweet potato pies. His ecstatic review helped Walmart sell over 1 million of the sugary confections.

But some say he’s doing too much.

Chanel capitalized on his newfound fame by filming a holiday special with Patti for The Cooking Channel and recording a solo single in less than a week.

But Chanel’s single was not met with the same enthusiasm as his Patti Pies review.

The cold hard fact is Mr. Chanel can’t sing.

It’s easy to queen out in your living room with an audience of one. But Chanel was clearly nervous about singing for his supper in a roomful of about 20 rapt listeners.

James Wright Chanel

A video teaser released by The Cooking Channel to promote the holiday special didn’t fare any better on social media.

Chanel and Patti’s holiday special airs Wednesday on the Cooking Channel.

Will you watch?

    He has a nice voice?? He needs a lil sex appeal. A little pizaz? Something special. I’d say play up the my head exist without a neck card, but Stephanie has that on lock? Anywayz, yeah, he needs a new gimmick. A sex tape maybe? Leak some nudes? Advertise a waist trainer on Instagram…Something…Otherwise he’s just like any other person with a nice voice and big breast??

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Uh..we know this would happen cuz he is only known to Black folk… soo yeah he shoulda waited til after the Pattie Special..

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Thanks for continuing the gay theme today?? But for your “negative post” I would know not of his single?? I’ll support and add it to my Tidal playlist??

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Happy gay day??

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Now you KNOW the day wouldn’t be complete without a Wut drama

    So a co-worker who is slick really into me..(invites me to lunch we go to expensive places to eat. Pappadeuxs, Capers, Red Lobster(ok Red Lobster ain’t too expensive but still not ordinary for lunch) He just sent me a text to attend his Chrimmus party…Here’s the catch..DIS NINJA Married! I told him from jump I don’t do married men, he said he don’t mess around on his wife..but I have caught him watchin my azz when I walk in front of him. He notice anything different I do with my hair, compliments my heel game. One day shortly after the accident I came to work overwhelmed and started crying. One co-worker came and was sitting with me he came, sat there and just held my hand. In front of the co-worker. When the co-worker left he asked what was wrong stood up said everything is going to be alright and kissed my forehead! Once out to lunch recently Im on my phone talking to my sis about my 140 light bill, we stopped at Walmart he comes out with 7 20’s and say I heard your conversation, no need to return it. But he never actively put the moves on me..Question should I go or would not going offend my friend and he stop talking to me all together HELP!!

    ???Not Luther but big Luther???

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    He’s not a good “live” singer, but neither was Whitney when she first started. With that being said, NO, I’m not watching the special, not buying no pie, and certainly not buying his music. He needs more training!

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Wut what kind of pheromones do you have?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Jay Z will be happy to hear that.

  • Oh Tommie

    He can’t sing? Yes he can. The only thing worse than a self hating black is a self hating gay (lesbian, trans, and other). All the shade towards LGTBQ (and whatever the hell else letters they claim these days) suggests YOU’RE the one with issues. Now go sit yourself down with the negativity chy.

  • Empress

    I think he should focus his energy on being a TV “personality”. He can be funny and he should just burst out singing occasionally more as a punchline, it’s cute. He has a solid voice but it wasn’t the voice that captured people it was the personality. I wish him the best.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He was horrible. I would never buy his single.

  • 1/8

    He has a great voice, but he needs to work on his breathing, phrasing, and timing. With that being said, in today’s market, he has no audience. James is fat, black, and effeminate. Three strikes. He’s out!

    When I used to blog, I wrote an article explaining American Idol contestant, Jacob Lusk, would never be a star for those same reasons. I was right then, and I’m right now.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Listen… I know I don’t know you like that butterummmmm

    1) What kind of work do you do? The actual profession; teacher, IT, social work, etc. I’m trying to figure out how you have so much access to black men in your work place… I’m not even going to touch on how fine they always are. I mean in my particular profession, I am lucky if there is another black, let alone a man.

    2) You know the deal…let’s be real. You have gotta be at least 30. You know that man wants some azz. Everything he has done has been inappropriate. Kissing your forehead…that’s some intimate ish. Paying your light bill. For why? If some random educated woman walks up and stabs you, we will know why.

    3) The only reason y’all friends is because y’all ain’t fuggin. You don’t care if he’s stop talking to you, you care if he stops feeding you. I mean the fact that you had to tell the ninja, you don’t mess with married men says it all…

  • Fendi

    Benzino has “no neck” on lock. Lol @ advertise a waist trainer. Perhaps, he can change the game and advertise male Spanx and a man bra for moobs. He and Rick Ross can do ads and a single together. He can be the featured vocalist on a Rawse track. And at the end of the video, they can kiss on the mouth like Ross and Diddy do.

    BBM pörn is also another alternative. I’m sure there are women with big man fetishes. He has many options. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter to prevent stretch marks on his stomach, as well as for his feet, so when he slides his chancletas on, his feet aren’t cracked and dry. Perhaps a Gold Bond endorsement for his feet, or Weight Watchers. He can show us his new “erms” post-weight loss. When he flaps his arms like MISS PAAAATTTI, he will have less flab than he had when he started.

  • Miany

    stay yo asss far from him.,,.I almost slipped my panties into his back pocket reading this shii…lol nah seriously, if he is givin u his WIFE’s money he will surely give you her dyck..imo…i would back back!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The audio is so poor, I can’t even tell what the song sounds like. I already know he can sing though, that was obvious from the Pattie Pie videos.

    OT: I hope this debate lives up to it’s full circus potential. But, probably not, the candidates that have a chance (if Trump backs out) are scared to say anything about Trump.

  • lil goodie

    If you do go..take a date….if he try to act up once you get there…thank him AND his wife for the money he gave you to help you pay your light bill.

  • stav

    If this man is married, and you don’t do married men? Why do you keep giving this man the time of day? You work take care of your own bills, get a pay day loan! If you don’t mess with married men , you shouldn’t take money from them either. You should have never kept going to lunch and otherwise. Yes he is the one that is that is married, so that shows what kind of husband he is , but your integrity is your own, prove yours is intact. Give the money back !

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    1) AMEN. Lordt when they are black they usually shytty or only like Beckys. Rarely are they attractive and if they are they’re probably sleeping with everybody.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I don’t actually think he sounded that bad. It was NOT a professional recording session, the acoustics weren’t good, and he’s clearly trying to do the right thing by letting his cousins sing background. And, let’s be real – there are plenty of ‘singers’ out there who can’t even carry an auto-tune, so I won’t be too harsh on James this early in the game.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He better save his coins and not go on a major shopping spree! However I don’t see a thing wrong with cashing in. Take the opportunity while you have it…. We all know that Aunt Patty doesn’t play though so he better remember his place.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Amen. Or they are married/middle aged.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    awww… say it aint so… (he may have to go the gospel route, huh?)

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    yes, he does have tons of personality.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    ROFL!

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    child, find a way to ‘return’ that $140, stay ‘way from that porty, and don’t let him see you ‘in distress’ ever agane!

    If this were the 70s or 80s, James would have a shot. I’m a huge Sylvester fan, but Sylvester wouldn’t stand a chance in today’s musical climate. Today, the closest thing we have to an act like Sylvester is Ceelo Green.

  • I want to be free

    Wut you are too smart for this. You know what he wants. It’s one thing to have an office friendship but it’s another to accept money from a married man. Don’t go to the party because it will be awkward and you don’t need to be in that position. Kindly decline and keep it a office friendship. Give him his money back and express your appreciation for his help but state that you can get through whatever you are going through. Never take your personal issues to the office. You don’t need office folks in your business.

    I think James needs some re-branding. shave that cockscomb off top his head. stop wearing those fly-church-mother outfits from Ashley stewart, and get him a well-tailored wardrobe. walk and talk like a man. and lay down some ballads. he might catch on :shrug:

    That’s because video killed the radio star. We used to listen to people on the radio before knowing what they looked like but now these weekly tv talent shows have convinced us that anyone with a mic can sing. Many of today’s singers should be glad they debuted after the creation of MTV where visuals distract poor audio.

    I agree with you 100%! Personally, I don’t give a d@mn what a singer looks like, if you can “sang,” that’s all that matters.

    When I was shelling out my hard-earned money for Stephanie, Anita, Whitney, Phyllis, Aretha, Gladys, Patti, etc., it wasn’t because of their looks, it was because of their talent.

    No! There can only be one. That is too, TOO much going on with them together. Skinny and in full make-up, and Luther”esque” together? No…just no. I think it would make for a good bottle of wine and your favorite snack because there WILL be a good ole fashioned cat fight and plenty of quick one liners.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I’m only addressing the 1st two sentences in the first paragraph. I’m not sure if he was nervous or not, but he could work on some things.

    Regarding him having no market, I would say with what is out here now he could stand a fair shake. No pun intended.

    Maybe I’m tired, but he reminds me of a mix of Terrence T and that boy out of Toledo that was on Apollo and running all over Georgia in that corvette.

    Remember the guy who won Oprah’s talent show, a young black dude with a voice like Luther’s? Sadly, I can’t remember his name and I did a telephone interview with him for an article I was writing.

    I doubt Rubin will ever be a super star. The target black audience has abandoned R&B and white audience will only accept soul music if it’s coming from “Adele.” The whole situation makes me sad. ?

    What is his name?

  • Mister Fantastic

    Lose the spandex and cut that muppet Bert do he got going, whist he losing a 100 pound… Then put out a single. He pulled the trigger too fast. Pun intended.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Is Adele’s music really categorized as R&B? To me she has a variety of styles but the only thing soulful about it is her projection, she can sing loud. Unlike Amy Winehouse, Adele doesn’t strike me as someone who grew up listening her mama’s old R&B record collection.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Sorry, I was referring to Ruben.

    Darn it! I really wanted to Google the guy who won Oprah’s contest. I can’t remember his name and I spent at least an hour talking to him on the phone, after he won! Oh, well… I’m glad to hear Rubin did well, academically.

    I love CC and her wardrobe. It was a good season finale. Out of all the franchises, the NY women do the damn most. Girl finds out bf marries side piece.

    Last week PJ told Niecey he would help her get on her feet so she can stop being a damn burden.

    Marisol reports Cara to the boss because of the comments she made about her sleeping with the fat white guy. Marisol says she’ll make it go away if cara gives her Mark show. Cara gives in but that bytch still reports her to HR. So there will be an investigation.

    MJ tells the white boy she don’t want to date him anymore because she wants black love and she doesn’t want to explain to him what a kitchen is.

    Offtopic as usual

    This police man. A deceive of sex crimes was one of his own damn suspecrs. Shot and killed himself.

    Northern Virginia crimes against children detective killed himself Tuesday when officers tried to arrest him on child sex charges, police said.

    David Edward Abbott, 39, an investigator with Manassas City Police Department, refused to surrender and shot himself with a handgun in his home in nearby Gainesville, according to the Prince William County police. He was pronounced dead at the Senea Dr. residence, WUSA-TV reported.

    Abbott, who served on the Northern Virginia-Washington D.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, once requested a warrant to take pictures of a teen sexting suspect’s genitals. He had been wanted Tuesday on suspicion of indecent liberties by a custodian and use of a communications device to solicit sexual offenses.

    The the dumb police department went on to say. He was great guy he arrested many people on behalf of children. His damn cohorts
    . .he probably had swapped kiddie porn with them. He is where he needs to be. God forgive me.

The population here is 98% men and 2% women, and we are among about 5 upper level blacks..in this building. So I thought it cool we hung and complained at lunch about the things we go through. It has never been suggestive he has never touched me inappropriately (I did catch him looking) but no advances. I guess thats why I thought it was cool..but I see that if this was my husband lunching with a woman coworker, I would feel some kind of way. So your right

    He rich ex, that she was dating, got pregnant by but had an abortion. They both weren’t ready. Now he got a baby by a YT lady. She at one time and did a ghetto baby egg freeze in her maytag stainless steel standup fridge that is located in her kitchen. I think the frozen SPERm was next to some icecrem and peas. PRessed.

    But she ended up getting rid of the rich man sperm, cause her hating has girlfriend who WAS/Is a Dr. Told on her. She was single and with no kids. She was pretty but had a hangout cause she said her mother husband, not her daddy but his thing in her. Then Mary Jane found out that her Dr. girlfriend had a crush or kept a crush on David, cause I think she me him first. Well not sure when but that Dr. Lisa had sucked David peen. He is attractive, but he thin and lean, not sure how much he packing. SHRUG.

    Well Mary J was but dialed by David when he and Lisa was talking about how she sucked his peen and MaryJ overhead it. Knowing Lisa sucked his peen upset her so bad, that she wrecked her car (she had been drinking) She stay drunk….Well Lisa tried to apologize and Mary Jane would not accept her apology. So Lisa Killed herself. You know I don’t like editing….But you get it.

    Men do only what is allowed. Case closed. If you are concerned with him being married and understand he is interested in you…you wouldn’t be going to lunch…and most importantly entertaining the attention. It’s really that simple.

    Thank you! Let’s stop playing coy. The behavior is inappropriate. People need to learn to stop playing games with others. Why on earth would you accept money…allow him to kiss you on the forehead. If you wouldn’t do this in the presence of his wife..then you should know the answer to the game playing. Please!

She mentions they are few of the elected blacks in upper management, but your behavior doesn’t display that. Most women, including myself who are in higher up positions, don’t even entertain such foolishness. I’m not about to lose my job over some community penis.

    This young man has a very powerful voice. I honestly don’t think he sounds like Luther at all. He should seriously consider singing gospel because his voice is very powerful.

Do what needs to be done respectfully that is to get where you want to go. If singing about some pies worked for him kudos to him.

    Brian McKnight was recently on Tavis Smiley talking about the industry changes effecting “black artists.”

    One point he made was that rappers are considered “R&B singers” by some consumers and real singers are being ignored.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Sadly that’s true here in the states. I also thought how ironic it was that you mentioned Adele and how she’s considered ‘soul’ because in the UK they revere soul/r&b. Every now and again i’ll luck up on a podcast compiled by a young Brit DJ and the playlist is full of ‘Our’ music. They respect the music and its historical impact on the music scene worldwide. Those young yt boys know about Motown, Stax, Atlantic, Epic records, etc. (And Michael Bolton and Elvis are NOT in the mix. :tea: )
