The VH1 reality star, who also released her “Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart” album today, channels Lady Day in the Child Basquiat directed visual which finds the singer employing a 1940s jazz vibe to sing about the usual tale of love gone wrong.
In an interview with the breakfast club earlier today, K said “Something about the Night” as well as all the songs on “Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart,” are about British actor Idris Elba, who the singer claims to have had an eight month relationship with.
K said the relationship ended amicably and that she basically sent Idris back to raise his child. “He had the baby and it was just kind of like, I’m not going to be in the middle of this so I walked away from it. What kind of woman am I to say, ‘Okay, leave your family and come and be with me.'”
Relationship revelations aside, early predictions have “Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart” selling around seventy-five thousand copies in its first week. That’s good enough to most likely land K in the top 10 on the Billboard charts and maybe #1 on the R&B Albums chart.
