K. Michelle is not holding back on her new single ‘Kim K’ from her forthcoming album Kimberly: The People I Used to Know.
“Wish I could be a Kardashian, so I could be Black,” K. Michelle sings. “They ask if it’s real, I say it’s real fat/ don’t get caught up in facts, ‘cause ain’t sht real/ And ain’t sht funny.”
K. Michelle addressed the meaning behind the single on Instagram:
The black woman is one of the most copied and sought after beings, but we are often told that our blackness is not enough or threatening to those who see strength as conflict or my opinions as difficult! My New song “Kim K”is a true testament to what it feels to live as a African American woman in this world and industry. My writing isnt based in convenience but in truth.
