While it seemed like ChesnuTT would continue to release music at a prolific rate, the follow-up to his debut was a December 2006 EP, Black Skin No Value. Also during this period, his wife gave birth to two children and the singer wanted time to focus on being a father. Subsequently, ChesnuTT didn't release a second album until October 2012, when the sophisticated Landing on a Hundred appeared on One Little Indian. A much more robustly produced, yet still organic album, it found ChesnuTT drawing heavily upon Marvin Gaye's classic late-'60s/early-'70s sound.
Over the next several years, ChesnuTT continued to split his time between touring and taking time off to be with his family. In 2017, he returned with the Anthony "Twilite Tone" Kahn-produced My Love Divine Degree. The album found him better balancing his early lo-fi sound with a dynamic, stylistically varied approach to contemporary R&B. Featured on the album was the single "Image of Love." ~ Linda Seida
