Kandi Burruss isn't exactly a rookie when it comes to booking studio time, but she seemed more than happy to be back in her home away from home when she posted a photo to her Instagram this week in which she was spotted in the studio.
"Being in the room listening to music with these guys got me feeling inspired!" Kandi wrote about hanging out in the recording studio. The Grammy winner ("No Scrubs," duh!) and The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member posted a photo alongside artist MalcUpNext, producer Mr. Hanky, and songwriter/engineer/producer Jayo Muziq. MalcUpNext also posted a photo with Kandi and captioned it: "Today was dope."
As fans will recall, Kandi has had an incredible career in music, from her time in Xscape, her work as a songwriter for everyone from TLC to Destiny's Child to 'NSYNC, as well as her solo work (she released a song "Fake People" in 2018). She also appeared on and won The Masked Singer in 2020.
Earlier this year, Kandi's solo track "Don't Think I'm Not" was sampled on the track "When You're Out" by Billen Ted and Mae Muller. "Much love to @billented & @maemuller for making me a part of another hit! Everybody add #WhenYoureOut to your playlist! I love it!" Kandi shared on Instagram.
In other news, Kandi, who acts on the series The Chi and also narrated Keeping Up With the Joneses, recently announced her next big gig. In June, it was confirmed that she has joined the producing team of the upcoming play Thoughts of a Colored Man, which is set to star Broadway's first all-Black, male cast.
She shared some details about the endeavor on Instagram: "History in the making! All of these incredible black actors will be starring in @coloredmanplay on Broadway! @dyllonburnside @wolfjames @mackwilds @forrestmcclenson @silverthroat @therealbtc @davinchi [and] written by @keenanthemuse! Follow them! I’m blessed to be a part of the producing team! The tickets are on sale now! Get your tickets now! Link in my IG bio."
Kandi added in a separate Instagram post, "I am so excited to announce that I am one of the producers of the play Thoughts Of A Colored Man [and] it’s coming to Broadway in October. The first ever play starring all Black men, [and] written, directed, [and] produced by all African Americans that will be on Broadway! I hope you support [and] get your tickets today! This is definitely a win for the culture. Wow! This a dream come true to add Broadway producer to my resume!"
In an interview with ET last month, Kandi, who has performed on Broadway in the past, opened up a bit more about what theatergoers should expect from the play. “It's one of those plays that will pull on your heartstrings. It'll make you laugh. It'll just take you through all the different emotions -- when I tell you, our cast is amazing," she said. “So I'm so super excited to see these men be able to bring to life the African-American male experience, but in a way that you've never seen it or never heard it, which is important because so many times in the past it has just been this whole thing of negativity. And I think that people need to see that it's so much more to Black men that you probably never knew.”
