K Michelle has been one of the most recognized artists in the world of R&B music. Well she's telling fans that she's giving up on making R&B music . . . and going COUNTRY!!
K Michelle has toyed with the idea of releasing country music in the past. In a recent interview, the singer/reality star told fans, "I grew up on country music like many people from the South. I loved it growing up, and I still listen to it now."
Up until 2 weeks ago, the idea of a Black artist getting widespread success on the country charts seemed ridiculous. That was when Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” a twangy ode to the cowboy life, racked up millions of listens and popped up on the Billboard Top Country Must charts.
Now K Michelle is hoping to do the same. She's already began recording music, and previewed her first country song on Twitter yesterday.
Here's her first song:
In other K Michelle news, last week the former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star was tuned in to the season eight premiere of the VH1 series on Monday night. She took to Twitter sharing her thoughts on the show’s debut, and even extended some kind words to her former on-screen nemesis Rasheeda Frost.
According to BET, "In case you missed it, the season eight premiere episode followed Rasheeda as she was introduced to her husband Kirk Frost’s son, Kannon, who was conceived out of wedlock during their marriage. The couple was celebrating their wedding anniversary when the small child, whose mother is Kirk’s former mistress, Jasmine Bleu, visited their home for the first time."
K. Michelle, who was glued to the small screen, shared her thoughts on Rasheeda’s decision to accept her husband’s love child. When a fan asked her take on the situation, she said, “That’s a tough one. They seem really in love and we all mistakes. She knows her heart and her limits, I wish them well.”
