New Song & Video: K. Michelle – ‘Half Of It’ (Rihanna Cover)

Published: Wednesday 29th May 2013 by Sam

K. Michelle may have quite the slick mouth, however it’s becoming increasingly clear that there’s a method in the madness.

For, since the return of her hit show ‘Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta’, the soulful songstress has served up something new musically each week. Her latest offering? ‘Half Of It’.

The buzz cut, a Rihanna cover which is being rolled out in support of Michelle’s new album ‘Rebellious Soul’, plays more like a confessional than a traditional “single”. Yet, in true “K” form, it’s a must-hear from the very first line.

See what we mean below…

K. Michelle’s “official” single ‘V.S.O.P’ is out on iTunes now.

    I actually like it, but maybe its bcuz I like the Riri version …

    Very Nice!!

    • Ballsy May 29, 2013

      I like it too. I thought Rihanna was gonna close out this era with this song but it look like they won’t be making it a single. What now will be more appropriate.. K Michelle did the song good in her own way

      • Junior in Jamaica May 29, 2013

        “Half of Me” is a bonus track for the deluxe version doubt she’d release when it’s not on both versions of the album.

    • STEDERJN46657 May 30, 2013

        Who’s angry? I heard your girl got dragged by an en ex nickelodeon star with millions off royalties alone, something rihanna’s not familiar with 😆

      • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

      F.Y.I Keyshia Cole, K. Michelle and alot other female Hiphop infuse with R&b are trying to be Queen Mary J Blige she is the inventor. Now go back and youtube Mary early performances and you will see Mary dark glasses, blonde hair, f*** up attitude on stage and in interviews.

      • Teah May 29, 2013

        What the f*** are you smoking? Bath salts? Keyshia Cole is a better vocalist than K. and that’s not saying much

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) May 29, 2013

      Cause Love & Hip Hip ie still on the air.. Wait until that season’s over though, her 10 minutes will be gone again..

  10. TurnUp4Cici May 29, 2013

    Her voice is AMAZING!!! This version is definitely better than that shitty Riherpes version!!!!

    • FAF May 29, 2013

      *cosign* & she keeps it real, too…

    • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

  13. Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

    I love how the CList-Squad is trying to discredit Rih. Keep the hate coming p******! 🙂

    • FAF May 29, 2013

      C list >> no song credits … A HIGH PAID W**** 😀 w/ no value #FACTS

      • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

        Do you want a cookie since Ciara co wrote a couple of her nursery rhymes? At the end of the day, she is a flop. Loser. Irrelevant. Has been. Figment of the music industries imagination. Stay mad sis. 😆

        Rihanna’s p**** pats >>>> Ciara’s EXISTENCE.

  14. Woman To Woman May 29, 2013

    Yaaas K!!!!!! I love the original & this version its cute!

  15. Music May 29, 2013

    She looks like Keyshia Cole…

    • Woman To Woman May 29, 2013

      No TF she don’t

  16. MariahIsMusic1 May 29, 2013

    Who’s this b****. I hate FLOPS! I mean you should promoting your music rather than covering other peoples songs. That’s how irrelevant basic and stupid you are. I can’t at Sam bringing all these FLOPS here. I can’t seriously I can’t

    • Ciara QUEEN Harris May 29, 2013

      Triumphlop….
      Beautiflop….

      • Taeys May 29, 2013

        Out of Ciara’s 19 released singles only 6 yes 6 out of 19 were top 40 hits. SEETHE GOT DAMNIT!!

      • FAF May 29, 2013

        RIhanna’s released more singles than Ciara though

        and her first album FLOPPED lol .. it wasn’t til she sold her soul she got a lil shine

        but even after 16 yrs beyonce can sell out a tour .. Why can’t Rihanna 🙁

      • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

        Is that why DWTs American leg sold out? You can check BILLBOARD boxscore for reciepts babe. 😆

        Ciara wouldn’t even be able to sell out a local AMC movie theater. Did her little London show sell out (only seats about 2000 people)??? 😆

        You shitty b*** bottom/dirty d**** d*** (whatever you are) love to bring up an eight year old album that sold 1.5 million off of a #2 worldwide hit.

        But then again, most of your Ciara receipts are from 8/9 years ago, so I’m not surprised. 😆

  17. Ciara QUEEN Harris May 29, 2013

    Kmichelle >>>>>> Sluthanna!!!

    • Taeys May 29, 2013

      Queen Latifah >>>>>>>> Ciara

      • FAF May 29, 2013

        ^ QUeen latifah ? are u dumb, A*** d*** ? QUEEN LATIFAH IS A LEGEND AND BEEN OUT SINCE THE EARLY 80S

        HELL, THAT B**** REBECCA BLACK THAT SING FRIDAY EVEN WROTE HER OWN LYRICS !! 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

      FAFs syringe >>>>>>> Ciara 😆

  18. Taeys May 29, 2013

    Why Ciara last 2 albums didn’t go Gold or Platinum in any music market on planet earth? Why she complain the label wasn’t doing their job for her but even Chris Brown coming off major scandals was signed to the SAME exact label as Ciara but didn’t fail nearly as bad? Doesn’t that seem more like a Ciara problem then a label one? Where did Ciara’s fan go? Why doesn’t Ciara have hometown support? I need answers!

    • FAF May 29, 2013

      Why you asking questions about the princess, ugly h** ? Why chris brown had a scandal & sold? u answered ur own question!!

      Ciara dont need no scandals ! 3mil in the US h** ! debut album! where’s rihannas ?
      where’s chris’ ?

      I need answers why Rihanna aint got a cheque after all that slave labor she doing

      • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

        Where’s Ciara’s 9M and 7M WW albums? Hasn’t she only sold about 8 million TOTAL? 😆

  19. Teenage Dream May 29, 2013

    Who is this Keyshia Cole knock off????

  20. HoneychildPlease May 29, 2013

    Ewww oh no! Hunty this is a hot ass mess from the lyrics to the b**** covering it smh…

  21. Mother Monster May 29, 2013

    I prefer Rihannas

    • Elvick May 29, 2013

      Wow, Rihanna has a version?

      She finally wrote a damn song for herself?

      No? Oh, you mean Emeli Sande’s lyrics that Rihanna sang.

      Yeah, okay.

  22. Queen Barb May 29, 2013

    Keyshia Cole>>>>>>> K.Michelle

  23. FAF May 29, 2013

    Ciara got u h*** in a frenzy I see . Body party 150k without a live performance with straining vocals at the grammys *crying in laughter*

    • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

      But it’s like three months old. 150k is pathetic. You are so delusional it’s hilarious. 😆 😆

      I can’t wait until Kelly Rowland slays Shitaras album sales. 😆 I think I’ll buy two copies just because 😆

  24. FAF May 29, 2013

    U navy better stay posted in this thread, thumbsing comments.. the world knows the truth about ur h** w/ her flat asian tranny hind parts she tries to post on IG & deletes when it gets no likes 😆

  25. Shauwndapooh May 29, 2013

    Rihanna and her impact

    • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

      HELLO!

      The cierror stans simply CANNOT take 😆

    • Elvick May 29, 2013

      Emeli Sande and her impact*

      Can only imagine how much better the song would be if she sang it for herself. But she’s gotta pay the bills since consumers would rather support a puppet who has everything done for them.

      • Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

        She’s irrelevant in America. Sorry. 🙂

        And I can’t wait until Rih starts stealing writing credits like soooo many others in the industry. 😆

  26. Navy Sailor May 29, 2013

    Hey FlopAssFaves remember when your pathetic fave posed nude (bent over and assed out) for Vibe back in 08? Then the dumb b**** tried to say that vibe airbrushed her clothes off. Kiiiiii. She tried to sell her soul but even the illuminati didn’t want her whispering ass.

    WHAT IMPACT HAS CIARA LEFT ON THE MUSIC WORLD?

    THAT B**** DIED WITH LIL JON AND THE EASTSIDE BOYZ

    Kiiiiii DEAL b****!

    • ADMIT IT May 30, 2013

      Lol am weak at whispering ass ….lmaooo

  27. ratedxxx(tic toc) May 29, 2013

    no thank you, I’ll pass….

  28. Orlando May 29, 2013

    I almost died! I just literally almost died. This b**** smh but whatever! Rihanna songs should not be covered in my opinion! She’s the S***!

    • Elvick May 29, 2013

      Well, when Rihanna writes her own songs. Maybe people won’t cover them.

      Until then, Rihanna is a glorified cover artist.

  29. deniseblack May 29, 2013

    lawd!!!! the half of it is way to much we dont want to see the full version if you aint got the first half right the next half will only be ——————–well lets just leave it blank and see what happends lawd!!!! poor child and so far the album sucks and thats just the first half lol

  30. Super Cisus May 29, 2013

    Pressed ass navy is press cos Ci is snatching wigs. Deal with it

  31. soulmusiclover May 29, 2013

    one of rihanna’s best songs! hands down! and it’s weird that k michelle has a better voice but rih’s version is better, it’s actually very emotional when she sings it! hey i just gave rihanna a compliment!

  32. Blue May 29, 2013

    Rihanna brings soo much to the song…

  33. TeamBreezy May 30, 2013

    Im shocked TGJ gave Rihanna credit for a song that Emile Sande wrote …. hmm, the shade has fallen short today I see

    • ADMIT IT May 30, 2013

      B**** go help your fave, he sure could use your help right now…TGJ do even mention your fave..without a RiRi mention

  34. ADMIT IT May 30, 2013
