Exclusive: K. Michelle Shares Emotional Conversation with Smokey Robinson

K.-Michelle-Interview-2

K. Michelle has accomplished so much in the process of making and releasing her debut album Rebellious Soul, and has been able to meet many of her biggest inspirations. Some of whom have helped her along the way as mentors or just shared their own wisdom and best wishes for her.

During our recent chat with the R&B songstress she shared with us a special story about meeting and speaking with the legendary Smokey Robinson, who happened to be on the same flight as her.

K revealed that she couldn’t hold back the tears during their conversation because Smokey was so understanding, insightful and welcoming to her struggles. He was confident she would one day get married to a good man, and reminded her that the great ones always get into trouble.

On her upcoming sophomore album, K is stepping out of her R&B comfort zone and incorporating other styles of music, which she also spoke about with him.

“He gave me a lot of wisdom on making music from the heart, and I was talking to him about this album, really not being a R&B album, which is really going to be difficult for a lot of people to accept but it’s not a genre based album, it’s a feel-good album,” she said. “I was talking to him about that, and risks are necessary to take, especially if the music isn’t forced and it’s from you.”

Exclusive: K. Michelle Talks New Singles “Love ‘Em All,” “Maybe I Should Call,” Upcoming Sophomore Album, Taking Risks with Her Music

K.-Michelle-ThisisRnB

K. Michelle is one of the most charismatic and boisterous artists that we’ve had in R&B in quite some time. The Memphis native is wasting no time on the follow-up to her debut album Rebellious Soul, which she recently revamped as an inventive TV musical for VH1. While her debut LP hit stores only a year ago, the talented singer/songwriter is putting the finishing touches on her sophomore album, which she has been teasing with the hashtag #AWBAH.

Earlier this month K released the first single from the project, “Love ‘Em All,” which surprised many with it’s rock heavy production, but has been acclaimed and praised by many fans and new listeners for it’s catchy and confident theme.

ThisisRnB TV recently caught up with the R&B songstress for a sit-down interview about her new records, upcoming album and much more. In this clip from our chat K. Michelle talks to us about where she was mentally when creating her new singles, “Love ‘Em All” and “Maybe I Should Call,” the major differences between her upcoming album and her debut, her Country music influence, the album’s unexpected collaborations, and why it was so important to take some risks with her new music and this project.

“I looked around and I was like, ‘why should I be boxed and forced to sing a certain kind of lonely girl I’m so hurt, cuz I’m the little lonely black girl who had to struggle’ [type of song],” said K. Michelle. “Who wants to sing that all their life and be miserable all their life, there’s other sh*t going on other than heartbreak. I was just determined to talk about all those topics and sing ‘em how I felt ‘em, not how people look at my skin tell me how I’m supposed to sing them.”

“If you’re gonna go out, go out with a bang,” she continued. “If the fans get it that’s all that matters.”

Check out the interview below, and stay tuned for her second new single “Maybe I Should Call,” followed by the official video announcement of her new album.

K. Michelle Taking Break from Social Media After Verbal Attack on Son’s Friend

K. Michelle Memphis

K. Michelle is no stranger to backlash from people on social media, but over the weekend things went too far for her. While visiting her family and son back home in Memphis, for her son’s birthday, the R&B songstress was sharing various photos on her Instagram, including pics of her son and his friends. One of his friends happens to have Down Syndrome, and apparently some “evil” followers of the singer left disrespectful and disgusting comments about the young man.

This infuriated K and has pushed her to the breaking point of signing off from social media. On Monday morning she delivered a message to her fans making her feelings clear and insisting she will be taking a break, but it won’t be forever.

“Social media was made for fun, but it has become so heavy,” she said. “A source for bullying and hurting those who u secretly desire to be. I’m not mad at any of you hurt souls though. Who I am to judge? I’ve just decided to hand over this negative source in my life.”

See her full message below:
