New Music: K. Michelle – ‘Christmas Night’

K. Michelle

It’s going to be a blue Christmas for K. Michelle. Instead of feeling the joy of the holidays, the R&B songstress is left alone and brokenhearted. She shares her pain on her holiday-themed single “Christmas Night.”

“‘Cause those gifts that you bought me are still under the tree/ I should tear ‘em up just like you did to me,” sings a hurt K, whose “Rebellious Soul” tour wraps Dec. 3 in Boston.

The song is now available on iTunes along with her soulful cover of the classic “O Come All Ye Faithful.”

K. Michelle Teases Lil’ Kim Collaboration, Calls Out ‘Catty’ Females

Kendrick Lamar made headlines when he brought out Lil’ Kim at Power 105.1′s Powerhouse, but the Queen Bee was also supposed to hit the stage with K. Michelle. Rap-Up TV caught up with the “V.S.O.P.” singer, who explained why the moment never came to life.

“The time at Powerhouse got moved up,” she said. “So you know us women, we take a long time to get ready and the time was so back-to-back, there was no room to move. She didn’t make it to hit the stage with me in time. I was bummed, but the show must go on.”

Despite the mishap, the ladies remain friends. “She’s always been a K. Michelle fan and I’ve always been a Lil’ Kim fan,” she said.

They are even planning to collaborate on a new song. “I’m actually having her work on it this week,” said K during her show at L.A.’s House of Blues last week.

There has been a lack of collaborations between females in music. When asked why, K put it bluntly: “‘Cause they bitches.”

She continued, “We don’t see a lot of collaborations between female artists because they’re really chickenheads. It’s so catty, like, ‘Oh, you got my wig.’ Girl, shut up. What are we doing here? Let’s make music. Rappers can come together and collab. It’s rare that you see females come together. I’m definitely for the collabs with all the great female artists that are out now.”

However, you will see female unity on her upcoming VH1 show “No New Friends.” “It’s basically about my life as an artist, a mother, and a businesswoman,” said the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star. “You guys get to see, not just the pop-off K. Michelle, curse you out, but you get to see really all of me.”

K. Michelle is currently on her “Rebellious Soul” tour with Sevyn Streeter and Tiara Thomas, and is gearing up for a Christmas edition of her album Rebellious Soul.

Rap-Up TV: K. Michelle Re-Ups with ‘Rebellious Soul’ Christmas

K. Michelle has been packing venues on her first headlining tour. Rap-Up TV caught up with the R&B songstress backstage during the second stop of her “Rebellious Soul” tour at L.A.’s House of Blues this week.

“It’s really amazing because when they said I was doing a tour on my own I got scared,” she said. “I was like, ‘No one’s gonna be there.’ So for both nights to be wall-to-wall, it’s been ridiculous and very humbling.”

The tour also features Sevyn Streeter and Tiara Thomas, the latter of which will join her in Dallas on Nov. 11. “Female artists can be very catty, and I wanted to do some newbies that could really bring something to the table,” she said of her supporting acts. “Tiara Thomas, we both have the same manager and her writing is amazing. And Sevyn is one of the best new writers that I’ve heard.”

After topping the charts with her debut Rebellious Soul, the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star is planning to release a Christmas version of her album just in time for the holidays.

“There’s gonna be a Rebellious Soul, it kinda is like Christmas,” she revealed. “I didn’t want to do a full out Christmas album, I don’t know if I’m a Christmas artist right now, but I wanted to give out a gift to my fans for Christmas.”

The re-release, tentatively due later this month, will include two original songs and three Christmas covers including her soulful remake of “O Come, All Ye Faithful.”

K. Michelle

After launching her “Rebellious Soul” tour earlier in the week, K. Michelle shows some fan appreciation by dropping a new song called “He Gets Me.” On the piano-driven record, the R&B songstress sings the praises of a man who understands her.

“‘Cause this dude he gets me/ He don’t disappoint me/ Before I say it, he know it/ Before I kiss him, he kiss me/ Somebody finally gets me,” she sings.

She plans to release more music later this month as part of her Rebellious Soul Christmas.

“Just wanted to give my Rebels something special tonight. Cant wait for you all to hear the new Christmas Music,” tweeted K.

She will also perform at the Soul Train Music Awards, which tapes tonight in Las Vegas and airs Dec. 1.

K. Michelle and Rick Ross

Young Jeezy jumped on the official remix to K. Michelle’s “V.S.O.P.,” and now Rick Ross serves up another round. The MMG chief, who previously remixed Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and Lorde’s “Royals,” shouts out his Haitian folks and gets “butt naked” in the pool.

“Tell K. Michelle a new king’s on,” raps the Bawse, whose album Mastermind drops Dec. 17.

K. Michelle is planning to release another remix featuring August Alsina, and will hit the road with Sevyn Streeter on her “Rebellious Soul” tour beginning Nov. 4 in San Francisco.
