If you couldn’t get enough of watching Kandi Burruss on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” (new season starts on November 6) you’ll be glad to know that homegirl is about to get her own special on Bravo. She’s just going back to her musical roots on-screen, thankfully without Kim Zolciak’s involvement.
The former Xscape singer will have the chance to turn up-and-coming musicians into pop stars with her new special series, The Kandi Factory. On it, she will choose two performers to come to Atlanta and school them on how to succeed in the music industry.
If you didn’t know, Kandi, aka, Kandi Girl, is a pretty big songwriter outside of Xscape. She penned “No Scrubs” for TLC, “Bills, Bills, Bills” for Destiny’s Child, and numerous other hits bangers for artists like Usher and Alicia Keys. I don’t know if she’s necessarily the go-to chick for making someone into a pop star (“Tardy for the Party” didn’t get Kim too far…), but I’m glad to see her work with that blasted “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is opening up more and more doors. As my friend and hundreds of other people like to say, “You Better Work!”
