Propelled by her silky smooth vocals and radiant personality, Chalynn was handpicked by Lil Baby to be the first woman and R&B singer to join his Four Pockets Full label. Showing off the skill and seduction that endeared her to the industry conquering superstar, Chalynn shares "What You Do," her sensuous new slow jam. Delivering an understated, but technically impressive performance, the First Lady of 4PF describes the intoxicating feeling of a new relationship, where the chemistry is perfect and thrilling new experiences feel as familiar as breathing. Adorned with flecks of acoustic guitar and blasts of room-enveloping bass, "What You Do" creates a hypnotic soundscape that mimics the dream-like state Chalynn enters when in the company of her new bae.
"What You Do" arrives with a sultry new music video that establishes Chalynn as one of the baddest in the south. Filmed in crisp black and white, the new video evokes the classic glamor of a silent film, or a glossy spread in a fashion magazine. Her first ever music video as a lead artist, "What You Do" is certain to make an impression on R&B lovers of all stripes.
First showing off her pipes in "Summertime," a 2021 collaboration with Dess Dior, Chalynn is determined to step into the spotlight and help add a fresh new element to 4PF and the genre at large.
“The vibe I’m going for is sassy, and a mid-tempo vibe for the girls," says Chalynn. "I wish to bring the 2000s-era R&B. It’s gonna fit the modern day. It was so pure back then and slick. Nowadays, it’s so blunt.”
Stay tuned for much more from the First Lady of 4PF, including an EP to come later this year.

The Background:"It's crazy how life works," says singer Chalynn. "You go down one path and end up on another because everything happens for a reason." The first lady of Lil Baby's 4 Pockets Full label did not set out to embark on a music career. The Atlanta-based Chalynn is passionate about cosmetics, fashion, and the visual arts. However, the lifelong vocalist garnered significant attention by posting song Instagram clips and her very first release, "Summertime," a 2020 feature for Dess Dior that has earned half a million views. That led to a deal with one of music's most exciting labels. "I was doing makeup; now I'm singing. With singing comes choreography and dancing. It all feels meant for me, though." For the last year and a half, Chalynn has been crafting her sound and style while writing heartfelt songs. The 23-year-old will make her 4PF debut with May 20's single "What You Do." "It's about when you get into a situation with somebody," she shares of the sexy single. "This is best for my first drop because it was a concept that felt right. This is my sound, my strong point, and it is very pleasing to my ear."
