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
Y’all know Benzino is the king of taking selfies. #LAME The middle aged chicken nugget has no issue taking his shirt of and letting the world know what slim fast can do for you. Quiet as its kept, Benzino got a lil too bold with the selfies and sent a nude to somebody who felt the need to share it with the world. No tea no shade, I know I call benzino a chicken nugget, but chile he is working with more than a 6 piece. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Well y’all, the baby that Kirk once suggested that Rasheeda get rid of now has his head lodged in Rasheeda’s birth canal and is trying to break free. Earlier this morning Kirk tweeted/instagramed a picture of Rasheeda in her hospital gown with the message “it’s about to go down.”
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
So season 2 of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta sold all kinds of lies, fantasies, and fairy tales. Since so many people rely on shows like LHHATL to escape the harsh realities of everyday life, I made an executive decision this season to not kill anyone’s joy. I mean who wants to be the the person who tells the kids that Santa Clause doesn’t really exist. Well, during the reunion which you guys will soon see, there is a part where Erika & Scrappy leave the stage and do not return. All sorts of rumors have been swirling around as to what happened. The most popular rumor is that they quit the show. I’m here to tell you you guys nothing of the sort happened. Unfortunately, their daughter got bit by a dog pretty badly and they had to snap into parent mode real quick! Catch these T’s Continue reading
Listen, K. Michelle is the prime example of what the hell you are supposed to do when you are given a reality tv platform. Bae-Bae this girl has masterfully executed a plan that has me looking at her not like some ratchet reality television star, but as a real artist. Like for real for real, the kind that come on MTV. LOL. I’m so proud of K.Michelle because she has come a long way. 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.
Another Major accomplishment, K. Michelle was the 1st member of Love & Hip Hop to appear on Wendy Williams. Shade, I know. She sang VSOP and did a pretty damn good job. She looked good too. Check it out! Continue reading
