Long before ‘Old Town Road’ took the charts by storm, K. Michelle had been touting her abilities as a Country artist.
Indeed, despite finding her success in the R&B arena, the Memphis native has been oh so open about her love for Country music and yodelling. The latter of which she actually had a scholarship for.Array
Now, as Lil Nas reaps the rewards for something many felt impossible (see: Black artist making waves in the Country space), K is taking matters into her own hands.
See what we mean below…
At a Tennessee event last night, the ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ star hit the stage – to the clear surprise of the host – and declared that she is the new Taylor Swift.
She also told on-lookers “I’m a Black girl that sings better than any White muthaf**kin’ Country singer in Nashville right now.”
Watch the must-see moment below…
In social media commentary explaining the situation, she later said:
“HEY Nashville! I was not invited but I came. I walked right up there and had a public service announcement that: Nashville “I AM HERE” you can’t keep telling me I can’t sing your music but the truth is it’s MINE. It’s ours. We bleed the same blood. Let’s make some magical music regardless of how we look. We can all exist together.”
What do you think about K’s words and approach?! Let us know…
