K. Michelle returned to VH1 last night in “K. Michelle: Rebellious Soul – The Musical.” The “Love & Hip Hop” star shared her emotional story in the Idris Elba-directed hip-hopera set to the soundtrack of her debut album Rebellious Soul.
Divided into three acts, the dark theatrical presentation captured the lust, love, heartache, and redemption of a woman struggling to break the cycle of bad romance, with a dramatic ending you wouldn’t expect.
“I wanted to turn my album into a story,” K told Rap-Up TV. “Each of my songs tell a story about something I’ve had to go through and something I’ve done. So I said, why not take this and turn this album into a piece and turn these songs into a conversation and make you better understand a lot of my thought process behind the records.”
Watch the drama unfold on screen.
