Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta was famous before she started hanging with the southern belles on Bravoâ€™s hit show. She was a member of the hit music group Xscape in the 90â€™s and is a super prestigious songwriter to boot. Now, after a very rough year emotionally, the artist is prepping for her newest album in ten years!
The album, titledÂ â€œKandi Koatedâ€ is a follow up to her debut album called â€œHey Kandiâ€¦â€ from way back in 2000.
On last weekâ€™s episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, you saw first hand that Kandi has some serious pipes on her. Sheâ€™s currently promoting her latest single â€œLeave Uâ€ and even shot the music video for it.
If youâ€™re a true The Real Housewives Of Atlanta fan, you know very well that Kandi helped write the lame-o hit â€œTardy For The Partyâ€ for fellow Atlanta cast member Kim Zolciak, which made it to number 3 on iTunes Dance charts.
But did you know that Kandi has written songs for Mariah Carey, Pink, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, TLC, Destinyâ€™s Child, â€˜N Sync, Boyz II Men, Faith Evans and more?
If you think about all the cash songwriters earn, this would make Kandi the least desperate of all the housewives. It seems that every other housewife is entangled in some sort of financial drama. But not Kandi!
And now with her singing career kicking back into high gear, Bravo is lucky she came back for a third season.Â Yes, she did have reservations.
“To be honest with you, I didn’t know if I was coming back,” she says. “I didn’t feel like I had to do the show, but I knew it would be a good tool to do the things I want to do outside of it.”
