Congratulations to Singer/Songwriter and “RHOA” cast member Kandi Burruss for recently signing record deal with Asylum Records.Â Her album should be coming out in the spring and will include producers Jazzy Pha & Drumma Boy.Â I also heard that it will feature rappers Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Rasheeda.
Kandi also recently gave an interview to The Canadian Press about using the “RHOA” to jump back into the music scene.
AP: You rewrote and produced the song “Tardy For the Party” for your cast mate Kim Zolciak. Were you worried about the song failing while on the show?
Burruss: It could’ve went either way. It went good but it could’ve been career suicide for me. If that song would’ve been wack, that’s all people would remember me by. Nobody would’ve taken me seriously. Labels would’ve been saying I’m not hot anymore as a writer. … I’m thankful it turned out all right.
AP: Now, you’re looking to release an album this year. What will be the album title?
Burruss: At first, I was going to call it “B.L.O.G.” because I was inspired by some of the things I read on the blogs. Now I’m feeling like I should called it “Fly Above.” I’m overcoming stress and drama.
AP: Will you go into depth about your “Housewives” experience and A.J.’s death on the album?
Burruss: Some of the songs were written prior to the show. Half of the songs were written during my relationship with A.J. With the “Housewives” show you get the visual. So this album is the soundtrack to the show.
