K. Michelle‘s last studio album, ‘All Monsters are Human,’ may have been soaked in critical acclaim thanks to its Jazze Pha-produced R&B radio hit, ‘The Rain,’ but most of the promotion for the effort was washed once the award-winning singer unveiled she was hard at work on its Country music follow-up and other business ventures.
A year after ‘Monster’s arrival, Michelle’s Country opus has yet to line dance to shelves but she has finally lifted the lid on one of the many endeavors that’s been keeping her busy.
Taking to Instagram Wednesday (January 27), the 34-year-old revealed her new Lifetime series will begin production next month.
While she did not specify a tentative premiere date, she did suggest its content would be a stark contrast from that of her TV origin – VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ The Mona Scott Young-produced jaunt may have been Michelle’s launching pad (as she starred in its New York and Atlanta iterations), but that didn’t stop the ‘Can’t Raise a Man’ singer from raising a glass to the reality show – before indicating she’d outgrown its format.
Per the quote above, she revealed:
For 6 years of my life I was on a show called ‘Love and Hip Hop.’ It really helped me reach a lot of goals at that time, I’ll never knock that blessing. But, I knew in my heart I could not longer participate in something I was not passionate about and had no desire to be on camera with any of the cast,” she said. “…I knew it was time for something bigger than throwing drinks.”
