‘I’m Just Really Blessed To Get A Second Chance’: K.Michelle Signs Major Record Deal

It’s been a long time coming for Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star and R&B singer, K. Michelle. If you’ve ever taken the time to sit and watch one episode of the show you’ve probably heard at least a snippet of the Memphis native’s story. Back in 2008, she was released from her recording contract with JIVE Records due to a series of drama filled events including the alleged mismanagement of her budget by her boyfriend and producer Memphitz to the traumatic domestic disputes between the two and abuse allegations that she made against him. As if being linked to drama of that magnitude wasn’t enough, K.Michelle had also earned quite a name for herself among industry executives for being irate, difficult to worth with as well as having a short temper. Through the filming of LHHATL, it was revealed that although the singer had the talent to sing many established singers under the table, most producers were afraid to work with her because of her reputation.

Viewers felt for her as she poured her heart out on camera multiple times sharing that the abuse is what made her snap and how down on herself she felt after losing her recording contract and the man she loved in such close proximity. Despite the circumstances, K.Michelle continued to work hard in order to make her dreams come true and  it seems that the singer’s hard work has finally paid off now that she has signed a pretty major record deal with Warner Brothers Records. She took to her Twitter page yesterday to announce the good news and express her gratitude.

Today was a very special day. Today I signed with Warner Brothers Records. I am a true testimony that God will make room for ur gifts.

So many people counted me out and wished bad upon me. Some if tried to destroy my name. I kept fighting and praying. Music is my life

She also discussed how she felt about getting a second chance with Singersroom.com

“I’m just really blessed to get a second chance. I have so much to sing about and so many stories to tell,” K. Michelle told Singersroom exclusively. “I may not be the most polished or prissy R&B singer, but I do feel that I am the voice of a lot of women who don’t have a voice.”

Don’t you just love happy endings? We’re very happy for K.Michelle and we’re praying she keeps that temper in her pocket this time!

    YES! good for you. Now don’t mess this up with that mouth of yours. Take the needle and thread you do your weaves with and sew it up!

  • YAY!!!! i cant wait for the single to drop!

  • moonrose4me

    I’m very happy for her. She deserves it!
    Can’t wait to hear more of her music!

  • Miss_Understood

    Her voice is PHENOMENAL but she has demons, I am a fan and will buy her music but I really hope she lets go of that anger and pride before it ruins her blessings. God forbid she loses her voice permanently from cussing everybody out

  • I am so happy for her; she needs to let all that other stuff go, humble up, move on and make great music.

  • Space

    Oh yes god is real k. Michelle have great talent keep temper down please!!

  • IllyPhilly

    I am not ashamed to say I actually liked that song she made about the other lady with Steebie J’s kid. She has a nice voice, I hope she puts it to use.

  • honest

    ratchetness aside i respect anybody who can write there OWN stuff (side eye at so called queen beyonce)…if K Michelle better get some anger management she can blow all the way up!! and walk away from Love and Hip Hop

    • pretty1908

      I agree ! quit the show or only appear to sing or promote your music. don’t get caught up in the drama. it makes you look unprofessional and childish.

    I am happy to see anyone get an opportunity to better themselves. However, she will probably blow this deal too. Just a couple weeks ago she was on video cursing out a fan on stage during a performance. A couple of weeks prior she was cursing out a concert promoter and refusing to go on stage. It wont be long before someone or something at Warner Brothers pisses her off and she’ll be flying off the handle and getting escorted out of their building just as she was escorted out of Jive. The only way she is going to make it is if she can keep her anger, ractchetness and ghetto mentalality in check. Best wishes though….

      Sad but true she really lost me when she refused to go on before Musiq Soulchild and Lyfe Jennings because she felt she was better than being the opening act. Her attitude is just so vile and repulsive it won’t be long before she’s in the lobby,again screaming like a 2 year old child when something doesn’t go her way.

  • UmYah

    Drama aside. K. Michelle can sang! Period. People should really check her stuff out. Im really happy for her. She can put the bs behind her and really go get it!

  • Na Na

    Yesss! K, do your thing! BUT get your life, mind, body and soul in order as well and you’ll be fine.

  • Alohilani

    This has nothing to do with a ‘higher power’ but the fact that she got lucky enough to be picked for a reality show which got her name out there.
