Track Listing


Kandi Burruss made an easy transition from being in Xscape, one of the hottest ‘90s RB groups, to penning songs for other artists. TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Destiny’s Child's “Bills, Bills, Bills,” two singles she co-wrote, topped the -Billboard Hot 100 in 1999. The switch to solo recording artist wasn’t as fluid; Hey Kandi…, issued in 2000, didn’t fare nearly as well, and she was dropped by her label. Ten years later, after a handful of writing gigs, some false starts for a follow-up, and a role on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Burruss finally releases her second solo album. She’s in fine form, either writing or co-writing each song, and she sounds more confident vocally than ever, with her material switching easily between heartache, desire, and self-empowerment. There are several highlights, but two truly stand out: “Me and U,” a romantic number featuring Ne-Yo, cleverly interpolates OutKast’s “Elevators” and glides, while the sparse slow jam “Lucky” is her steamiest song yet. A couple barbed numbers flick off boyfriends and haters like it's nothing to her. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
