Chanel West Coast definitely proved that “Heaven’s Calling” today. The 32-year-old rapper and “Ridiculousness” star posted by the stained-glass windows of a church today, but for anyone familiar with the MTV face’s recent news, that’s of no surprise. Chanel’s newly-dropped “America’s Sweetheart” album has “Heaven’s Calling” as its seventh track, with the video seeing West Coast shot inside a church. The star’s Wednesday Instagram update offered a slice of the video action, complete with an open trench coat and hiked-up leg. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo, plus Chanel’s “Heaven’s Calling” video. While the video shows Chanel going bad-girl from the church in shades and a red coat, the photo opted out of color as the former “Fantasy Factory” face went edgy in black-and-white.
This girl knows how to milk social media. Chanel, who went dominatrix-style in a black leather corset for 2019-released “Sharon Stoned,” was seen with her bare leg yanked up while in high heels near altar-shaped wall detailing, with a leather trench coat worn open, bombshell curls, and shades.
Chanel took to her caption, alerting her 3.5 million Instagram followers to the video.
“#HeavensCalling,” she wrote, adding: “Video out now! LINK IN BIO.”
Despite its religious-themed name, “Heaven’s Calling” doesn’t open with a God mention. In fact, it sees the hard-hustling rapper reminding fans that she wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth.
“When you talkin’ ’bout me, be specific
I wasn’t born rich, I really had to go and get it
My city real but what’s fake is the people in it.”

Chanel might be making music headlines right now, but she remains best-known for her 2011-commenced stint on MTV series “Ridiculousness.” Co-star Rob Dydrek first hired Chanel as a secretary on “Fantasy Factory” back in 2009, with Chanel even shouting him out in her new lyrics – she thanks Rob for having given a “b-tch” a job.
Chanel has also been extending thanks to the man who made her music career happen – she was signed by Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label in 2012.
“America’s Sweetheart” brings Chanel rapping about equality in a track entitled “Colorbind.”
“I don’t see colors, I don’t see faces,” she raps, adding that she just sees the “person that’s on the inside.” Chanel has, however, admitted to white privilege as she spoke of why the 19-track EP is called “America’s Sweetheart.”
“I called this album America’s Sweetheart because it’s an oxymoron and contradicts the perception that many have of me,” she said, adding: “I have flaws. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve benefitted from white privilege and I’ve had second chances in life that, unfortunately, many people have not received.”
