Exclusive: K. Michelle Spills On New Album, Reality Show, Lil Kim Drama, & More

With K. Michelle‘s new single ‘Love ‘Em All’ flying the flag for her forthcoming sophomore album, That Grape Juice caught up with the outspoken star who readily dished on the project and the plans she’s put in place to see it soar.

Ever-candid, the soulful chanteuse revealed a unique strategy that will see her pair the LP with out-of-the-box visuals and work different songs at different genre formats – including Country. She also waxed honest about her upcoming VH1 reality show ‘K. Michelle: My Life’ (which kicks off next month)

That isn’t all, though. For, true to form, Michelle served up LOL’s aplenty – particularly when detailing her issues with Lil Kim and Elle Varner, the latter of whom she appeared open to burying the hatchet with.

Never a dull moment with K Michelle. Check out our exclusive interview above!

dj mustard thatgrapejuice 600x396 Exclusive: DJ Mustard Dishes On New Rihanna Music, 10 Summers, & More

“Mustard on the beat!”

Unless one has been living under a rock for the past year, the chances of having jammed to a song with that tag are sky high.

Indeed, beyond being infectious club hits, tracks such as ‘2 On’ by Tinashe, T-Pain’s ‘Up Down’ and ‘No Mediocre’ courtesy of T.I. and Iggy Azalea all have a common denominator: DJ Mustard.

Recently, That Grape Juice caught up with the super-producer whose first album ’10 Summers’ was released exclusively through Google Play and is now also available in-stores.

Join us after the jump where we quiz the hitmaker on his album and the reasoning behind its roll-out as well as his rise to the top of the charts, he also spills the beans on his work Jay-Z and Rita Ora and of course he updates us on his work with superstar Rihanna.
