Everyone knows that Kandi Burruss is a hitmaker. Being able to purchase her first home at 19 years old, it’s clear that this woman has been thinking business for a long time. Despite what some of her Real Houswives’ cast mates and even former group members would have us believe about her, Kandi has more than proven she’s not one to sleep on. In addition to writing bangers, she was also the first African American woman to be named songwriter of the year by the prestigious American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP) in 2000. Her accolades are numerous but we’re sure that you really don’t know ’bout Kandi like you should. So in an effort to be informed, check out the hits Kandi’s made over the years. We’re sure there will be some surprises.

    Now y’all know why her mama is steadily actin a fool. Kandi got skills with that pen and worth 35 million because of it.

    ALL THIS TIME and i didn’t know my girl wrote ‘there you go!’ … you know, back when pink was black for a brief moment…that whole album was really good too. yeah, hits fa days.

  • Jacee

    I NEVER knew Kandi wrote soo many good and great songs for soo many artists. Tiny’s songwriting is shouted from the rooftops, but I think Kandi passes Tiny by alot?!
    I havnt seen all RHOA episodes, but Id reckon Nene jealous-aint her money from her rich OLD MAN husband?!? Smh Kandi’s wealth has it’s origins in God Given TALENT.

    Bey and Kelly look quite different here; nose, chiseled faces, cheek bones, etc. Know they both also had breast augmentation, lipo and butt implants. Thank God for pics, they don’t lie.

    ive posted two comments MadamNoire what kind cencorship is this?

    • Guess

      ikr. these sites are ridiculous with the censorship. don’t even think about going onto clutch magazine’s site. the site staff will actually cut into the dialogue and scold ppl about disagreeing with them. hilarious yet sad.

  • Cathy

    Kandi please don’t waste your time on filth = kim zolciak a user with a personality disorder

    I remember when Kandi and Sole played strippers in Sole’s 4,5,6 video. Although that song is years old I still play that song and people always ask me is that song new lol smh (some people never even heard it before and still say its dope once I tell them that song is older than some of their kids)..I’m 24; that song had to come out when I was about 10, 11.
    “I don’t care if its 4,5,6,7,8 in the morning, boy you better call me when you think your getting h0rn3y. I don’t give a danmn about who you with just as long as you ain’t giving up my isht”

  • kd high

    She also collabed with E-40 in “trying to get you and that bootie”

  • TbeeZ

    I love Candy!

  • lilmissmatched

    Kandi is talented but that list definitely highlighted more of her shortcomings than her hits. She’s definitely a go-to writer in the industry so her repertoire has to be better that THAT….

  • sabrina

    I’m only familiar with 1-5, and 11, and I already really liked them all!!

    This is the reason nene does not like Kandi-jealousy! If you remember one of the episodes-she was unpacking some of the awards she has won (I think she was placing them in her recording studio) Kandi does not seem to spend her money foolishly- & she probably has made some wise investments. Kandi has made her OWN money & this is why she is independent & does not have to depend on a man like nene & some of the other “gurls”.

    • Guesss

      why do we always feel the need to tear someone down in order to lift someone else up? this has zero to do with nene & as i recall the disagreement between nene and kandi ensued when kandi had a skrip per stir her drink & soon after began selling “intimate” toys, all of which nene believed were out of line. kandi is definitely talented, but i find her to be socially awkward and morally challenged… we need to stop placing so much emphasis on commercial success and instead focus on the content of ppl such as kandi’s character IN CONJUNCTION with commercial success…

  • Beejcee

    I couldn’t figure it out. Now I see why Nene is so jealous!!

        No season two I think was THE FIRST season for Kandi, Nene said Kandi can not sing and the fight between them was on. I am not saying Nene was wrong IJS

  • nia

    Kandi is a beast! I really don’t know why she’s even on RHOA. She doesn’t need the check!

  • NYC Gal

    Kandi also wrote Independent Women for Destiny’s Child. I heard her mentioned this on RHOA. Beyonce took writing credit as usual.

  • gn

    She’s so incredibly talented.

  • SUN

    She’s like Nile Rogers from Chic,did so much for other artists and you would never know until some one mentions it..Then your like well Damn! Wow!!

    • Steve Stone

      Good point. And what a lot of folks don’t know, is that while the artists get the pub, the writer/producer keeps making that scratch years later. Nile Rodgers and Kandi ain’t going to be hurting anytime soon.

    I must admit most of the songs I have never heard of but that still does not diminish the talent that she has……She made her own money and you cant ever be mad at that

  • http://twitter.com/malissakalissy Malissa B. Smith

    I know this is about songs Kandi wrote/produced but damn I cannot help but to notice how much Beyonce has changed! Wow!

    • Beejcee

      You took the words out of my mouth. I had to do a double take to make sure it was indeed Beyonce in that photo.

  • Ok

    Thats a great catalog of music go kandi…. But what recent hits has she written other than tardy for the party

    • http://www.facebook.com/malissa.b.smith.9 Malissa B. Smith
