New Video: Demetria McKinney & Kandi Burruss – ‘Unnecessary Trouble’

Published: Monday 28th Dec 2015 by Sam

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss has carved out quite the post-Xscape career thanks to her entrepreneurial endeavours.

However, last night’s episode brought music back to the forefront for the heavily pregnant talent.

She was shown shooting a video for former cast-mate Demetria McKinney‘s new single ‘Unnecessary Trouble.’

Directed by Derek Blanks, the clip sees Kandi – who has penned hits such as ‘No Scrubs’ and ‘Bug A Boo’ – in familiar territory, playing the truth-telling friend who spills on a no-good-man.

Borrowing a talk-show theme, the visual makes for an engaging watch.

Tune in below…

Given the context (RHOA), we were admittedly ready to greet this with a hint of trepidation. The actual end result, though, was surprisingly solid.

Colorful, catchy, and cute, this could be a minor viral hit if given the right push past the usual politics.

    I like it! Kandi sounded lIstenable and she really is a great songwriter! I think she needs to continue writing for others because this was a good song not saying it will be number 1 but definitely could be a hit on the r&b charts reminds me of music from the 2000s like blu Cantrell or sunshine Anderson

    Don Juan acted a damn fool last night. He and Todd are punks! Why didn’t Todd ask Apollo for the money when he was hanging out with him at the club? Dog.

    Sounds a little dated.

    I’m here for it

    I ACTUALLY like it! It does give me 90’s era, but truth be told… THAT was the DOMINATION era of R&B. I think it will do well if promoted properly…

  8. What now December 28, 2015

    No ma’am, but Kandi’s pregnancy glow is serving her justice.

  9. The Truth December 28, 2015

    I’m on the fence, I like their voices but I think the beat is too 90s for me, it makes it sound like songs I’ve heard before not something fresh and new. Can we get a remix with a more modern beat?

    That Demetria can slay a vocal. Interestingly dialled her back a bit on this track but loving the beat and vibe of track. Both looked great.

  11. I run dis December 28, 2015

    Yes Kandi for the Boots !

  13. Royalkev December 28, 2015

    This sounds a little 90’s, but Kandi always knows how to put a catchy bop together. It’s not bad!

  14. brazio December 28, 2015

  15. Code Dead December 28, 2015

  16. pon_de December 28, 2015

    So that was Todd escorting Kandi off the stage at the end but that was NOT Roger Bobb with Demetria….

Ed Sheeran‘s ‘Shape Of You‘ has been omnipresent on the charts and radio alike. Hence, it’s unsurprising if it’s become familiar to the masses. Well, it turns out one of the main reasons for that is that it borrows from TLC‘s smash hit ‘No Scrubs.’ And now its writers are being compensated accordingly.… Read More
