In all honesty, I was blogging from Starbucks yesterday while listening to K. Michelle’s new mix-tape. I tend to passively listen to music I don’t know, and wait for a song to grab my attention. My fingers came to a pause when “She Can Have You” rang out through my ear buds. I played the song over and over again until finally I had to stop the post I was working on and do a quick write-up on K.Michelle’s mix-tape. I made it a point to highlight the fact that I particularly loved the song “She Can Have You’. What I liked about the song is that it sounds like something Aretha Franklin would have sang, and her sister Carolyn would have wrote. The song puts me in the spirit of ‘Ain’t No Way.’
Nonetheless, I was blogging on about my business when my Twitter timeline started lighting up about how Tamar Braxton recorded the song first. No tea no shade, I was not being messy at all when I highlighted K. Michelle’s rendition of the song. Unbeknownst to me before I wrote my initial post, Tamar recorded the song. Now I’ll be the first person to admit, I am messy. That being said, I’m a bold bish that has no problem owning hers. In this instance, I genuinely was not trying to throw shade at Tamar. No tea no shade, I didn’t have to throw any shade Tamar’s way, because K. Michelle handled that by just recording the song. No GAWD hunty!!
In all honesty, this I how I like to see things fought out. Take it to the booth, not to Twitter and television interviews. You got beef, sing! You don’t like me, sing! Got something to say, SING! That being said, now we have to perfectly mastered versions of essentially the same song. Who ran it?
NOTE: K. Michelle says she recorded this song 3 years ago with TC. Meaning before Tamar…
Turn down for what? K. Michelle is busy in the studio working on a mixtape and is just about ready to be released. She released a few snippets of what she has been working on via social media, and the tracks sound hot. I got a feeling Miss Girl will a mainstay on your radio this spring & summer. We all love The August Alsina song ‘I love this’. Well K has put her spin on it and it sounds dope. Check it out. Continue reading
The time is upon us. Love & Hip Hop New York season 4 is almost here. I’m almost a little embarrassed to say this, but I’m actually looking forward to the premiere. With the new cast, it seems as if they finally got it right. All of you Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans are most definitely excited to see what K. Michelle is going to bring to New York. I hate to burst your bubble, but don’t expect too much. K. Michelle has already let it be known that she was on the road traveling majority of the time.

Love & hip Hop season 4 is amongst us and Mona & company have trimmed all the fat! Hunty all we are left with is Joe & Tahairy, Rich & Erika, and Yandy. Added to the bunch are Peter Gunz and his wife, and K. Michelle. No tea no shade, I like the smaller cast. This provides for less distractions and a more story development with the characters. K. Michelle is positioned as the anchor of the marketing, but throughout the season, don’t expect a whole lot from her on the show. K. Michelle let it be known that she was traveling throughout majority of the filming and all we really can expect to see is her doing her music thing. Catch these T’s
Singing “I don’t know what they want from me seems like the more money we come across the more problems we see…” Let me tell y’all something, Uncle Sam is not cutting anybody any slack these days. The damn girl cd ain’t even been out 3 months yet and the IRS is already standing in line with their hand out. Chile, i know we shaded the hell out of Lauryn Hill, but it looks like a whole lot of celebrities may be sitting right next to her ass in jail if they don’t get a handle on their accounting.

I must say, K. Michelle has definitely been doing the damn thang lately. The new poster child for female R&B has been gracing stages, shows, and magazine covers that quite honestly I never thought she would have. Not sure how many people consider The Wendy Williams Show to be a major stage, but no tea no shade, when I saw K. Michelle performing no Wendy, I thought to myself “this girl done f&cked around and made it”. yes Gawd K. Michelle.
The singer who’s album sold 72 thousand copies in its first week sat down to talk with Jaime Foster Brown over at Sister 2 Sister magazine and revealed some pretty interesting truths. One in particular is that K. Michelle feels she learned more as stripper than she did in college. Hmmm OK. Hell, these days the strip clubs and the streets are the higher learning institutions. Anyway, the soulful songstress dishes on the biggest misconceptions about her as a person and her big move to New York. Catch these T’s Continue reading
