R&B songstress Demetria McKinney releases her new single and video featuring singer/songwriter Kandi. The song titled “Unnecessary Trouble” premiered last night on Season 8 of Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta where McKinney made a guest appearance. The video was directed by famed photographer Derek Blanks and features RHOA alumni Claudia Jordan.
Regarding the inspiration of the song and video, Demetria had this to say, “Unnecessary Trouble” came from the drama of season 7 of RHOA regarding not only my relationship with my boyfriend, but also the murmurs about Kandi and Todd‘s relationship. The song is an anthem made to remind people that relationships have to be figured out between the people in the relationship.
McKinney is widely known for her role as “Janine Payne” on the hit TBS sitcom Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom. After her stint with season 7 Real Housewives of Atlanta the eOne Music recording artist has been keeping busy touring with the Pepsi Funkfest and opening for R. Kelly on his Black Panties Tour.
