From multi-platinum albums to Grammy Award winning songs to a top rated TV show: KANDI BURRUSS, formerly of platinum-selling R&B group Xscape and presently a cast member of the hit TV show The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA), is set to release the KANDI KOATED ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS THE FLY ABOVE EP digitally on October 29th.
THE FLY ABOVE EP features the TOP 20 Drumma Boy-produced iTunes hit “Fly Above,” which, according to KANDI, is “an anthem that will inspire anyone who is dealing with issues to ‘fly above’ the drama.” One of the RHOA episodes is centered around Kandi’s return to the stage with a performance of “Fly Above.” The single is also featured on the hot blog site Concrete Loop and has garnered great reviews by listeners. One listener said “Kandi has some serious range to her voice!!! The song is hot!!” while another stated “Luv Kandi she is fearless!!! Voice on point!”
Other tracks on FLY ABOVE include a KANDI-trademarked sassy song “Trade Him In,” which features Gucci Mane and is produced by Drumma Boy, the in your face Jazze Pha-produced hit “Must Be Good,” the Nitti-produced song “I Like Him,” featuring Rick Ross and Rasheeda and the Kuya Productions love song, “I Just Know.”
In addition to putting out her own EP, KANDI is featured on “Try It Out” the hit song by Big Bank Black which has been heating up Atlanta radio for some time now and has landed on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop charts. “Tardy For the Party,” the catchy RHOA track she revamped for Kim Zolciak reached Top 10 on iTunes Dance chart upon its release.
KANDI made a name for herself in the music business when she was a teenager performing with the hit girl group Xscape on Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def Records. After the group disbanded Kandi went on to write a Grammy Award winning song for TLC (“Scrubs”) and gave Destiny’s Child a #1 hit with “Bills, Bills, Bills” which led her to writing for superstar acts such as Pink, Usher, Whitney Houston, and Alicia Keys to name a few. Kandi will be opening up TAGS, a new boutique, in her hometown of Atlanta. A Grand Opening will be announced in the coming weeks.
KANDI will begin a promo tour to promote KANDI KOATED ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS THE FLY ABOVE EP in the coming weeks. Dates to be announced in the near future. Be on the look out for her full length CD, B.L.O.G. due out early 2010.
