Pop artist, ChrisLee, dropped his new single, “Flight Risk,” an emotional ode of choosing love in the midst of hard times. As the world changes during times of uncertainty, being able to jump through hurdles and take on life’s challenges with someone you love is a bond that should be celebrated. “Through many sleepless nights, I just knew that if I embraced the love I had in my life, I could go anywhere and do anything to get through this challenging time,” says ChrisLee. “Flight Risk” is available to download and stream on digital music platforms worldwide.
With cheerful beats and encouraging guitar strums mixed with ChrisLee’s delicate vocals and meaningful lyrics, “Flight Risk” is a sweet, soulful pop anthem co-written by fellow Songland alumni Keegan Bost (Julia Michaels) and Devin Kennedy (Ben Platt) and co-produced by Devin Kennedy. “‘Flight Risk’ was written at the height of the pandemic when I truly didn’t know what was going to come next.” From the ups and downs of panic and excitement, ChrisLee reminds us to triumphantly push through the snags in life. As the world continues to heal through the wounds of 2020, “Flight Risk” is the hopeful reassurance that brings light in the dark days. “The lyric in the second verse, ‘Now I really don’t care ‘bout a 5 year plan,’ really sums up the record for me,” he explains. “Having faith that whatever comes next is an adventure, and I need to be open and choose love through it all, instead of trying to control everything.”
