“If I can’t write a song about you, I don’t want to date you.”
So says K. Michelle, whose new album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart (#AWBAH) is truly the musical version of wearing your emotions on your sleeve. Calling herself “the Black Taylor Swift” at a recent private event previewing the album plus the first episode of her VH1 reality show My Life (which airs tonight), K is very clear her songs are dedicated to former loves.
“Maybe I Should Call” is about an athlete K was dating who lived overseas. It encompasses the messiness of modern day relationships with her desire to call and fix things but her pride not allowing her to: “But I never call / Maybe that’s my flaw.”
Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart drops December 9.
