K. Michelle will bring her “Issues” to Detroit’s Chene Park on Saturday, July 23. Along with R&B newcomer, Ro James, Slay Michelle will deliver her unique brand of raw melodies about life, love and lust. Well-versed in Drama 101, the feisty R&B singer and reality TV star has carved out a unique niche in the industry. She has become a millennial favorite. Her set will feature songs from her previous two albums and her latest, More Issues than Vogue, which is her third chart topping release.
Showing that she is more than just the princess of petty, the album expands on Michelle’s versatile musical style. It features an eclectic blend of R&B, pop and country. She assembled a dream team of producers, including Eric Hudson (Kanye West, Mary J. Blige), Lil’ Ronnie (R. Kelly, Lupe Fiasco), and Pop & Oak (Britney Spears, Drake). Guest appearances include Jason Derulo, Yo Gotti and longtime friend, Trina. True to her persona, K. Michelle exudes both strength and vulnerability, refusing to fake it. “I deserve to not dumb down my singing and my lyrics to fit urban radio. … The title means we all have issues. There are a lot of issues of Vogue, but I have more issues than anybody. The first time I heard the phrase I laughed out loud because it fit me so well. Every song focuses on one of those issues. This ties everything together,” she says.
As the first African American brand ambassador for Jack Daniels, K. Michelle has evolved significantly since her “V.S.O.P.” days. She stars in two reality TV shows and continues to build a committed following of “rebels.” If you’re in the D this coming weekend, stop by the riverfront and say hello to K. Michelle. Opening act, Ro James is an edgy crooner that won’t leave you disappointed.Tickets are available now at the Chene Park box office and through Ticketmaster.
