Beyoncé once again stopped the world by announcing what appears to be a country album during a Super Bowl LVIII commercial on Sunday (February 11). Apparently, many social media users began tagging K. Michelle after Queen Bey’s big announcement about Renaissance Act II.
One X account posted, “Has anyone checked on @kmichelle? Bey will bring pressure to country music!!” K. Michelle quoted that tweet and addressed the speculation she may be concerned about Beyoncé dropping a country project.
“Why would anyone need to check on me?” K. Michelle asked. ‘I’m one of the greatest African American country singers of all times with no album even out.”
The Memphis-born vocalist continued, “Y’all been mentioning me ALL night. I’m just happy to be [spoken] about in my genre. I love Bey and will be supporting her like I always do.”
Even though most of her releases have been categorized as R&B, K. Michelle has recorded country music throughout her career. For example, the former Love & Hip Hop star appeared on “Country Love Song” by Justin Champagne.
“As soon as I heard [‘Country Love Song’], I instantly knew when I heard it that this was going to be great. It’s a great transition and I love him on it,” Michelle told People in 2023.
K. Michelle dropped the I’m the Problem studio LP in September 2023. The album joined a catalog that also includes the Billboard 200 Top 5 albums Rebellious Soul and More Issues Than Vogue.
