K.Michelle is ready to get in the studio now that she’s inked a new record deal with a major label!
Singersroom.com reports that the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" signed a contract with Warner Bros Music earlier this week. VH1 viewers that have seen her show know that the new deal is something she’s been working towards for years after her falling out with ex-beau MeMpHiTz Wright.
She was released from her deal with JIVE back in 2008 following allegations that MeMpHiTz, her producer at the time, spent all of the money from her contract and physically abused her. Though there has been lots of dispute over the details of their domestic incident, K.Michelle never stopped working towards her goal of getting another deal as she released a mixtape.
Signing her contract was just the beginning of her new path. "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," the singer tweeted recently, adding that many people may have counted her out, but that music is her life.
During the signing, K.Michelle added, “I’m just really blessed to get a second chance. I have so much to sing about and so many stories to tell.”
When it comes to those stories, the singer has very clear ideas of what she doesn’t want to do with her debut album. "I don’t want to be crying, ‘Oh my God I’m hurt.’ We know I’m hurt, we all get hurt," she said "It has to say it in a way that women won’t say it…because I don’t care, I’m going to say what needs to be said."
Ultimately, K.Michelle asserted that she wants to leave her mark with the album.
"It just has to be very me at the same time because I don’t want to fall into the normal R&B, where they clean you up…I booked a system, I’m rebellious and I say what I wanna say."
