In the infamous words of the late and great Notorious B.I.G, “the more money we come across, the more problems we see,” and K. Michelle can attest to that!

Last month, the stars gathered in the nation’s capital for BET Honors 2015, which was taped at Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 24. Airing on BET on Monday night, the eighth annual show saluted African-American trailblazers in art, music, theater, technology, and business.
This year’s honorees included Kanye West; Usher; Phylicia Rashad; Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole, Director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art; and John W. Thompson, Chairman of Microsoft and CEO of Virtual Instruments.
Hosted by Wayne Brady, the evening featuring outstanding performances from the likes of K. Michelle, who stunned in a blue gown, belting out her Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart song “Judge Me.” Mary J. Blige inspired the crowd with her London Sessions song “Doubt.” While Patti LaBelle tore the house down with her gospel spiritual, moving Phylicia Rashad to tears.
An emotional Usher accepted the Musical Arts Award from Bobby Brown and Ben Vereen, and received a musical salute from Trey Songz, who performed a cover of “Nice & Slow.”
Other performers included Ne-Yo and Charlie Wilson, who was joined on stage by Kanye West for a freestyle over “Bound 2.”
Watch the performances below:
With her “My Twisted Mind Tour” already underway, R&B songstress K. Michelle is making sure she shares her voice any way she can. Stopping by the “Today” show on Wednesday, the curvaceous singer donned a white jumpsuit and short cut as she belted out “How Do You Know.”
The song, which can be found on her latest album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart, has become a favorite of fans and is a very sentimental part of her story.
Stating, “I’m away from my son, but at the end of the day, I have to take care of him and I need to get out there and sing for my fans. I fought so hard for this,” before going on stage, the singer made sure to put her all into the vocally stunning performance.
Watch K do her thing below:
K. Michelle is gearing up for her new headlining tour “My Twisted Mind” in promotion of her sophomore album Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart.
Set to kick off Feb. 5 in San Francisco, the R&B diva is giving fans an early look at her preparation for the trek with a new behind-the-scenes web series. Today, she has released the first clip, titled “Devotion,” which shows K working on her performance from choreography to song sequencing.
“I’ve always been the underdog, and I’ve always wanted to prove people wrong,” said K. Michelle. “I’ve always worked harder than most people, just so I could perfect my craft and leave people with nothing to say, other than ‘Wow that’s a talented motherf**ker right there’.”

Better late than never right?? 2014 may be over and done, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bask in it a bit more. While the year brought about many disappointments and frustrations, it also brought with it a few blessings in the form of R&B.
Whether you were waiting on your favorite artist to drop another album, or you were introduced to the sounds of someone different, there’s no denying the talent that moved through our ears and speakers last year. From Mary J. Blige’s commendable trip across the pond to K. Michelle’s anticipated sophomore effort to Chris Brown yet again finding favor in the hearts of many for his music, some damn good audible treats surfaced during 2014.
Although the above may be true, unfortunately some artists didn’t receive the shine that they deserved for their obviously noted underrated albums. That however, has never stopped us from giving them their well-deserved props and doing our part to help everyone discover their greatness.
So, even if you preferred to be “Dancing In The Dark” over getting “2 On,” there’s no way that anyone can say that this past year didn’t help with moving R&B back to the top of the charts! Gone are the days of R&B being looked at as “tarnished,” “washed,” or “unappreciated,” because there were truly some classic and timeless pieces of art dropped throughout last year.
So, without further adieu, give yourself one more look back with “The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2014″ below!
Y’all thought we forgot, huh? Although a little time has passed since 2014 ended, we couldn’t leave you without a recap of the year’s finest. Indeed, 2015 has already kicked off to a great start, but last year saw some of R&B’s most talented artists drop great pieces of work. While many of the best mixtapes or EPs came from new and growing artists in the genre, that doesn’t mean they didn’t put out work that parallels the veterans. Some, that we are proud to say, produced better material than artists who delivered full length projects last year.
While 2013 had us screaming the praises of Sevyn Streeter and Jhené Aiko, made us fall in love with Maxine Ashley and Tinashe, and let us know that Adrian Marcel was what the industry had been missing, it was last year that really solidified the fact that the new class of R&B artists are playing no games.
Doing our job to keep you up on the music that deserves to be heard, our “Top 10 R&B Mixtapes of 2014” list will either remind you, intrigue you, or wake you the hell up and let you know how much you’ve slept on some of the most talented emerging artists of the year.
So, moonwalk back to last year and press play on the “Top 10 R&B Mixtapes of 2014″ below!
With another successful album under her belt along with an addictive reality show in 2014, R&B songstress K. Michelle is ready to add another notch of success on her belt.
The singer, who went on tour last year to support her Rebellious Soul album, will be hitting the road next month on a new headlining tour titled “My Twisted Mind.” Kicking off on February 5 in San Francisco, the nationwide trek will promote her most recent release, Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart.
Previously, K stated that she would be going on a joint tour with her R&B sister Keyshia Cole, but from what she revealed to a fan on Twitter, Keyshia will only accompany her on spot dates. Hitting Los Angeles, Orlando, Baton Rogue, Charlotte, and more, the talented singer is making sure 2015 is just as prosperous as the previous two.
“I will create a world that is full of love, and positivity. A world where people embrace what’s unique about you, and not what’s wrong with u,” wrote K to her fans. “In my mind I am free from all the lies they tell on me, all the judgements placed upon me, and all the miserable untamed humans who use my name just to gain a little fame, My twisted mind is perfect. I am not my past. I am judged by the honesty in my voice, and the creativity of my thoughts. My TWISTED MIND is safe, MY STAGE #feb5 #tourlife.”
Check out the current list of tour dates below, and keep it locked as K will be revealing 15 additional dates soon!
On Wednesday night, K. Michelle continued to celebrate the release of her brand new sophomore album Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart?, with a sold out show in Washington, D.C.
Returning to the famed Howard Theatre, the R&B songstress ignited the venue with another outstanding concert. Having plenty of new material to debut live for her many DMV fans, K performed multiple records off the new LP, along with material off her stellar debut.
The fine folks at DMVstheMove were in the building and captured some great footage of K performing new songs “Something About The Night,” which she just released a stunning video for, and the sexy “Hard To Do.”
