August Alsina Brings K. Michelle On Stage at Album Release Show

August Alsina packed out SOB’s in NYC on Monday night for his sold-out Testimony album release show.  Not only was it an excellent performance and highlight of his rising career, but the young singer had plenty of special guests supporting him in the building, including Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Sebastian Mikael, Luke James and more.  As the crowd was as loud and ratchet as we’ve seen in the venue it was fitting that he invite the amazing K. Michelle on stage to voice her support.

Stepping to the mic like a comedian, K had everyone hanging on her every word while she explained why August deserves this success and support from all of his fans.  But, it wouldn’t be the real K. Michelle if she didn’t take some shots at some of the shady dudes in the game and of course she let everyone know the deal.  As DJ Era dropped her hit single “V.S.O.P.” August convinced the songstress to stay on stage and sing the club favorite for the screaming audience who loved every moment!

Check out the clip above, and pick up August Alsina’s debut album Testimony in stores now!


New Music: K. Michelle – Can’t Raise A Man (DJ Tedsmooth Remix)

DJ Tedsmooth is back with another banger! Coming with a new hit for what seems to be every week, the beat slayer took his talents to R&B’s own K. Michelle and her track, “Can’t Raise A Man“.

While the original version of the track has gained so much recognition over the past few months, we’re really feeling his version to the popularized track as he replaced the original slow melodic beat with the classic cut, “Gotta Get You Home”. Originally sang by Eugene Wilde and then remade by Foxy Brown and Blackstreet, the beat has been one of the most recognizable for just about 30 years now.

A great sounding remix to an already incredible cut, DJ Tedsmooth has done it again.

Take a listen to the tune below:

With a new reality show on the way and rumored appearance on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, if there’s one thing you have to give her credit for, it’s her grind.

While she’s know for giving interesting interviews, the comical relief appeared during the grilling of Ebro and his daughter.

Video: K. Michelle – ‘Can’t Raise A Man’

K.-Michelle-Can't-Raise-A-Man-Video

K. Michelle‘s longtime fan favorite “Can’t Raise A Man” has finally been given the single treatment, and as expected it’s on it’s way to the top of the R&B charts.  Now, the Memphis songstress premieres the much-anticipated music video for the poignant female empowerment anthem.

Rocking a form fitting burgundy dress, and flowing blond hair, the R&B firecracker belts out the strong song while standing in front of a waterfall. Black and white scenes of troubled relationships switch back and forth throughout the Benny Boom directed visual.

“It’s amazing how one topic can touch women of all ethnicities and backgrounds,” says K. Michelle. “I feel like men nowadays are not holding their own, and the roles are reversed. Ladies you can never raise a man. Maturity, morals and values are instilled in the beginning of their life … you can’t teach somebody morals at 30 or even 23, you can’t do it.”

K’s debut album Rebellious Soul is in stores now. She is working on a musical version of the album for a Broadway/Trapped In The Closet style performance which will air on Vh1 later this year. On Valentine’s Day K. Michelle will release her anticipated ‘Still No F**ks Given‘ mixtape.
