Haven’t yet heard of singer K. Michelle? Well the Memphis, Tennessee native is hoping to change all of that in 2011. Signed to Jive Records in 2008, the 26 year old songwriter and former Miss FAMU winner, is looking to make her mark on the R n’ B charts with her long delayed debut CD “Pain Medicine.”
The singer’s lead single “Just Can’t Do This” made its debut on BET’s 106 & Park last year and quickly gave the struggling artist a loyal following. Often compared to Mary J. Blige and Keyshia Cole, K., wants fans to know she plans to distinguish herself from the other brood of R n’ B females by simply being herself.
“I grew up listening to country music. I love country music! I love how they tell stories. I write my own music, too. I’m going to lean more toward my big ballads. It’s difficult to get on stage and sing a ballad without any fluff. I know how Whitney made me feel. Even with my urban edge and my street mixtapes I plan on making this a great musical journey for everyone.”
Executive produced by labelmate R. Kelly, “Pain Medicine” is finally set to hit record store shelves ON February 15th.
