K. Michelle On New Album: 'I Was Not Going To Be Boxed'


K. Michelle hopes to reach far and wide with her forthcoming sophomore album.

Following her VH1 special “K. Michelle: The Rebellious Soul Musical,” the “When I Get A Man” singer says she did not want to be boxed in on this album. We will hear country, acoustic and so much more with a flow.

“What people don’t seem to know about me is – it’s the fact that I am a classically trained pianist and play guitar and produce and compose. African American females really, really love me and listen to me. And that’s been my focus for so long, but I feel like pain and hurt and growth and real life has no color. And I’ve been determining, with this album, that the record that I am writing and composing can play on every format of radio and touch every single person. Not just gender-based, not just ethnicity but just great music overall,” K. Michelle shared with VH1. “So this album—I was determined, I was not going to be boxed and I was going to touch everybody. I have an amazing country record. I have an amazing acoustic record on this album and it’s not all over the place. It actually flows, because we need to understand that all music—good music is good music and there’s no genre for it.”

As previously reported, K. Michelle is also working on a VH1 series of her own. That is due to air this Fall.
