Kandi Burruss Breaks It Down In Her “Leave U” Music Video

These days Kandi Burruss is known more for being Kim Zolciak’s songwriter and backup singer on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“, but Kandi Burruss was part of the hit-making girl group, Xscape. Since the group disbanded, Kandi’s mostly remained in the background writing hits for TLC (No Scrubs), Destiny’s Child (Bills, Bills, Bills) and the aforementioned Kim Zolciak (Tardy For The Party). Penning and producing the latter proves how talented this woman is. Zolciak’s “singing career” would be nothing without her.

Burruss is finally stepping out with a new solo album and single. It’s about time! This woman is too awesome to just sit in the background. Her new single “Leave U” reminds me of how much I loved Xscape. Its the perfect blend of ‘ol skool R&B and modern day slow jam. “Leave U” is the lead off single from her upcoming “Kandi Koated” CD which hits stores on December 15.


The music video isn’t anything to write home about, but it’s the perfect re-introduction of Kandi to the music world as a solo artist. “The Game’s” Pooch Hall plays Kandi’s love interest in the video. Kandi tells her man straight up to start paying more attention to her or else she’s leaving u. Girls, we’ve all been there before, right? Can you feel me?

    this is too 90s R&B…If that’s what she’s going for good…but then still this is a filler not a hit.
    I love her for making TLC’s No Scrubs, and she’s awesome on Real Housewives, but this song is lame.
    I do think she has a great voice– was hoping it would be similar to Don’t Think I’m Not, which was amazing.
