Crystal Nicole’s track record as a songwriter is nothing short of iconic – writing for artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Monica, Natasha Bedingfield, Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, and Jennifer Lopez, among others.
Though her ultimate goal was to release her own album she was told she was “too dark, too big,” so Crystal plunged into the songwriting pool in 2007. Before long, the Grammy Award-winning I Am Sasha Fierce, E=MC2, and Still Standing, were among the albums she helped shape, becoming one of the industry’s A list top liners. She won five ASCAP Music Awards, and wrote Rihanna’s Grammy Award-winning Best Dance Record of the Year, “Only Girl in the World.”
As Crystal’s career continued to rise, her personal life began to deteriorate. After marrying her high school sweetheart, success became too much and divorce became the topic of discussion. Crystal decided that what she needed, success couldn’t buy. She turned to Jesus who lead her home to her husband. They recommitted their marriage to God and each other.
Now, wife, artist, writer, and aspiring actress Crystal Nicole is finally complete. Having found the true balance in her life she is now ready to continue to climb up the charts as a label owner hoping to pour music and wisdom into young aspiring artists.
