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
Chile go in and let have Miss K. Michelle. Mama’s first week record sales are pretty impressive.
First Week Figure: 71,853 units sold.
Billboard Urban #1
Billboard 200 position: #2
Not bad for the bish with the bad attitude. Do y’all remember when I emailed K. Michelle before season 1 of Love & Hip Hop premiered and she said that she just wanted to get her cd off the back shelves of Walgreens? Well She has succeeded! Just to put K. Michelles forst week sales into perspective , Ciara’s Ciara
sold 58,000 in it’s first week, Kelly Rowland’s Talk A Good Game
sold 68,000 and Miguel’s Kaleidoscope Dream
sold 71,000 in its first week, despite having the huge radio single “Adorn” on the LP.
It is important to note that she earns one of the highest first week figures in recent R&B history (no exaggeration) and does so without the benefit of a smash hit lead single. This is important because the lack of a smash hit lead single has oft been used to defend a number of unfortunate first week results recently.
K. Michelle dedicates a special song to Mimi entitled “A Mimi Story”. Mimi does not take to kind to it. Catch these T’s Continue reading

I’m glad that we the viewing audience got to witness first hand the process that K.Michelle went through over the first 2 seasons of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Now we get to bask in the gift that is her album that finally came to fruition.
K. Michelle’s new album ‘Rebellious Soul‘, is set to be released August 13th. However, she has given us a sampler with some pretty lengthy snippets on it and i must say “that thang is fiya”. Yes gawd hunty! I will be pre-ordering her album as soon as i finish writing this post.

K. Michelle may be through with Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, but she is not through with the franchise all together.

Trust & believe, when ratings aren’t as high as the network would prefer, somebody’s a$$ is getting fired. Love & Hip Hop New York is being recasted. Who’s staying, who’s leaving, who’s joining?.
