Kelly Price Speaks On K. Michelle Comments
On the latest episode of “Don’t Be Scared” David, Danni and Jah chat with Grammy nominated songstress Kelly Price. While there Kelly spoke candidly on working with Kanye on “Ultralight Beam”, her love life and her breast cancer foundation.
She also made sure to comment on K. Michelle, after the singer/reality star made some nasty comments about her over a publishing feud for the track “Not A Little Bit.”
“No one really liked the record,” said K. Michelle. “But I can hear things. I took it to like five different producers and I’m really big on not claiming credit on things that you did not do. […] I don’t do that, if I didn’t write it I do’t want credit. I didn’t write “Not A Little Bit” so for me I didn’t want any credit but I did want the producer who produced it to get credit.
“Right when it was time to close it out, she comes and says I want “100% of the record like you don’t have this amazingly talented producer with credits from Beyonce. You don’t have this guy who’s really Christian, from my hometown, you didn’t have him do the music? You played that? You played that music fat neck? She ended up gobbling up all the money and would not sign off on the record unless he didn’t get any credit. […]
I try to give people the benift of the doubt I don’t like anybody when it comes to my project to get treated like that.
According to Kelly, she doesn’t give her publishing away and she would never ask someone for theirs.
“I’m definitely not a demon, I’m not an angel but I’m not a demon,” said Kelly. “I’m a songwriter, I wrote a song seven years ago all by myself in my bedroom and I actually think she did a great job recording the song. I do understand that there are politics that go along with the business.
But those politics are not the rule and not the law, they’re voluntary. If you have a songwriter who decides that they want to share their publishing with someone who did not write the song, that’s their option.
I been a songwriter a long time, I understand the importance of publishing. I would never ask someone for their publishing, I don’t give mine away. I don’t have anything bad to say about her. [..] I give respect where it’s due, I don’t have anything negative to say about her.”
