We love that K. Michelle isn’t afraid to keep it real, especially when it comes to her love life and her struggle with exes.
According to Necole Bitchie, the songstress hosted a listening event for her new album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?, and during one particular song alluded to a rumored relationship that she had with actor Idris Elba.
In the song “Maybe I Should Call” she sings about her lover having a child with another woman, and how distance is keeping them from one another. She also shared he inspiration for writing the emotional track:
“‘Maybe I Should Call,’ tells a true story about what I was going through the past 8 -9 months. That’s a favorite, just from the snippets [and] we recently shot a video for [it.] The whole album is about one particular person and I think that [although] people don’t want to be heartbroken, I really thank God for this heartbreak because I wouldn’t have had these songs. So, I just wonder who the next man is gonna be before the next album, because if I don’t find one to break my heart, we all in trouble.
He is probably somewhere mad as shit. I sent all of these records to him first and he emailed me back and texted me back and said, ‘This is art! I’m so sad this is where we are.’”
Coincidentally Idris Elba worked with K. Michelle as a director for her musical Rebellious Soul, and also recently became a father earlier this year. When asked if the album was about her relationship with Elba, well, let’s just say that K. Michelle didn’t deny it!
