NY Times Goes Gaga for Kandi Burruss

Review hails "Kandi Koated" as "accomplished neo-soul."

If only we could reach through the screen and tell the Kandi Burruss who we see toiling away on her new album on this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that everything's going to be all right, and that soon, the New York Times will be raving about Kandi Koated.

This week, the Times called Kandi Koated "accomplished neo-soul" and praised the Housewife's obvious passion, writing, "She can glide through high melismas and hurl accusations; she flirts, she growls and she preaches." The Times also applauded Kandi's original songwriting and range. "She writes the lyrics, and they tell their stories succinctly," the Times said. "Throughout the album, whether she's aching or asserting herself, Kandi stays believable."

Not bad for the Hotlanta lady, who is now touring the country with American Idol winner Fantasia. It looks like the hard work we see unfolding this season has paid off.
