Asked how the new CD demonstrate how she’s progressed as an artist, Michele responded, “One way is that I didn’t write some of the songs. Pride destroyed! Ego smashed! Pens, pencils thrown across the room! It was so tough at first. But then I started working with Ne-Yo. Ne-Yo is the easiest person to talk to, and he made my experiences come to life with his lyrics.
