New Music: Kandi f/ Ne-Yo – ‘Me & U’

Kandi

Kandi Burruss pays homage to hometown buddies OutKast by sampling the duo’s classic “Elevators” on “Me & U” off her upcoming album Kandi Koated (Dec. 14). The ballad, co-written by and featuring Ne-Yo, is dedicated to her man, with lyrics detailing how the couple is almost the same person. “Me and you, there’s almost no such thing as us two/ We’re almost one person now,” she sings over the slinky instrumental.

“I love that song, partially because [Ne-Yo's] production team, they took the song ‘Elevators’ by OutKast and flipped the track,” the “Real Housewife of Atlanta” previously told Rap-Up TV. “I’m an ATLien, and when he turned that track and flipped it, he made it into a love song.”

    Coulda added more reverb and delay to her voice to make it sound more “dreamy” her vocals are sticking out over the beat too much to me.

    @thandundun besides writing some of the hottest songs of the nineties or for being a part of Xscape, one of the most influential R&B girl groups of all time?

    @thandundun, you prolly just got into music, and not know Kandi’s history, she was apart of Xscape, she wrote 2 Grammy award winning singles ” Scrub” by TLC & “Bills Bills Bills” by Destiny’s Child .. So do research b4 u comment, she aint a new artist, she done did the game …

    This is horrendous… she cannot possibly be serious with this. I’m shocked that Ne-Yo lent his vocals to this crappy track.

    love this track whats wiv the comparison to the billy goat Kandi is so much better in the talents department. And she wrote some of the best songs in the R&B genre and that most of us well people that love real R&B still love today. I stll love her song “don’t think i’m not” and i still listen to Xscapes songs as they are timeless trcks unlike most of the recycled garbage thats being thrown out atm looking forward to buying her LP.
