There will always be artists who expect everything to come easily, either throwing a tantrum or falling into a deep depression if they don’t get their way (my mom likes to call these prima donnas “pop-tarts”). Of course, one needs only listen to K. Michelle‘s music for proof that she does not fall into that category. As the singer demonstrated on previously-featured singles Can’t Go On and Self Made, she’s all about working hard and taking responsibility for her actions. On this new track, making its premiere right here in the Booth, Michelle exults in her hard-earned success, telling all those who hoped that she’d fall off, “You Should’ve Killed Me.” Rick Ross, another artist experienced in proving the naysayers wrong, contribute a memorable hook, and Cool & Dre deliver a beat reminiscent of their work on ‘08 Best of the Booth staff pick My Life. Watch for K. Michelle’s debut album, Pain Medicine, to hit stores this September; in the meantime, those interested in hearing more of the up-and-comer’s story should stay tuned for her forthcoming, Booth-exclusive In The Mix interview.
