City High had a number of hits including What Would You Do and Caramel which came out when she was only 18. She joined the group when she was just 16 years old while the band was still in high school. With their real and deep lyrics and Claudette’s soft vocals the group had much success in the early 200’s. But the group went their separate ways and Claudette had planned on releasing a solo album. She teamed up with Wyclef on the record Two Wrongs which was an international success and scored top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. She had recorded songs with Mase, Nas, and Ja Rule but many of the tracks were unreleased when the label decided to shelve her solo project.
Claudette returned to the studio early this year with producers WILL I Am and Pharrell. The album is due this fall. While we anticipated her upcoming recording Claudette is co-starring along with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson, Michel-le, Chante Moore and Kelly Price in the TV One series R&B Divas LA. Yeah we all seen the ratchetness in R&B Divas season 2 when Angie Stone joined the cast, who knows what will go down in this extension of the franchise.
