New Video: Kandi – ‘Leave U’

Published: Friday 29th Oct 2010 by Sam

Singer/songwriter Kandi premiered the video for her brand new single ‘Leave U’ today. The song is the first release to be lifted from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s as yet untitled sophomore album.

Check it out after the jump…

Though the video was standard-fare, it does a commendable job of capturing the semantics of the song. The song itself being the real winner in this equation. For, not in some time has there been a bonafide R&B single with as much lyrical dexterity and rawness as exhibited by ‘Leave U’ (unsurprising given Kandi’s well-documented writing skills/ see: TLC, Xscape).

One can only hope the video gives the song a boost on radio, where it is performing moderately well as at writing.

    Who is she?

  2. SparkD October 29, 2010

    @Aryo – Kandi has multiple identities in the U.S.

    Kandi was part of the hit r&b group Xscape.

    Kandi was/is one of the biggest pop/r&b songwriters in the U.S. – Destiny’s Child, Nsync, TLC and so on.

    Kandi is a current star on the hit reality tv show The Real Atlanta Houswives show, and was the only one who earned her riches.

    i love this song and kandi she can really blow 🙂

  13. KNUCK October 29, 2010

    Love the texture of her voice.. that didn’t really come out in Xscape although she had leads on most songs and her voice was prominent in most background vocals.

    I think she needs to make sure she has some songs where she sings out, but uses a more controlled vocal, i.e. “Don’t Think I’m Not” (which was a hit I might add). I really want her to get her props!!

  14. KNUCK October 29, 2010

    oh and her low register is bomb.. as well as her whistle register!!

  18. MrIncredible October 29, 2010

    Sam were Monica’s and Fantasia’s singles not raw r&b with great lyrical content? I thought so.

  19. MrIncredible October 29, 2010

    Kandi can’t act for s***… song is cute, but she’ll never be big again. Her image needs some serious reworking.

  20. jmoore October 29, 2010

    I’m feeling this joint.

  21. Clos October 29, 2010

    Real R&B!!!!!! Love it

  22. BDABOSS October 29, 2010

    I heard this on the radio last night. Yeah kudos to her for being the only member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to make her own money by using her own talent. lol

  23. Quentin October 29, 2010

    happy that sumbody finally singing abt sumthing tat people go through in relationships, kandi have a great voice and can write a song, like no one else can, cant wait for the album to drop.

  25. Saul October 29, 2010

    Surprisingly, this is really cute for her! The song is classic type R&B which we RARELY hear from artists these days, and the video fit the vibe.

  26. royalkev October 29, 2010

    Kandi is so underrated. This isn’t 1 of her best, but I love the hook. I’m sure it’ll grow on me! I’m sure she’ll have something for everyone to look forward to on the upcoming album.

  27. jay October 29, 2010

  29. theman October 29, 2010

    This is a really nice song and album.

  30. Just me October 29, 2010

    Everyone is saying she is the only housewife who makes her own money!
    A housewife isn’t suppose to work that’s the whole point if being a housewife!

  31. Lee October 30, 2010

    Her album is titled ‘Kandi Koated’. It got announced a few weeks ago….

  32. acem October 30, 2010

    The lyrics are ok, and the melody is decent…but that cheap track sounds generic, and needs to be completely overhauled. Sounds like a demo.

  33. daboss8791 October 30, 2010

    I always felt that Kandi was better as a back up singer/songwriter. She can carry a tune, but I couldn’t see myself buying an album where I would have to listen to her vocals front and center throughout.
