This past weekend, I was sitting in the house with my good girlfriends, drinking wine, listing to the radio as we usually do when we can’t find anywhere to go. We began talking about all the hot topics in music. Of course we talked about Beyonce, Rhianna, Tamar, J Hud, Alicia Keys, Keyshia Cole, the state of R&B music, and then K. Michelle. I was surprised when my good girlfriend, out of no where, got real crunk and started riding hard for K. Then she commenced to pull up YouTube videos of K. Michelle singing. There was this one particular video that grabbed my attention and touched me on the inside part and called my name. Catch these T’s, K. Michelle singing with just a piano. Mama was giving me all kind of R&B 90′s T’s
The moment I watched this video, all the bad press that K. Michelle has gotten in the past went out the window. While watching this, all i saw was the music. For a singer, a real singer, all it should ever be about is the music. I get it, sometimes we have to come to the table with a gimmic when our voice isn’t being heard. In this instance, K. Michelle’s gimmick was Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Now that the LHHATL platform has elevated her to a place where we can now hear her voice, it is now time once again for things to be all about the music.
For those of you who have never seen this video, I hope you enjoy it as much as i did.
