New Music: Kalenna – “Space And Time”

kalenna space and time cover

After another drama-filled season of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, Kalenna delivers her official single “Space And Time” via Phantom Music. Serving as her first single, Kalenna describes the process of healing when going through a hardship in a relationship.

Harper joined the cast of the VH1’s LHHATL in Season 3. She is best known for being a member of the group Diddy-Dirty Money, which was fronted by entertainment/fashion mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs. After the group disbanded in 2012, Kalenna engaged in a very successful songwriting career, penning songs for numerous artists including Christina Milian, Aretha Franklin, Pussycat Dolls, and Ciara.

Kalenna says:

“I was thinking about what me and my husband was going through one night while he was rocking out newborn baby to sleep, and I began to think about the beautiful memories we’ve made together along with the beautiful people ! And Space and time was spilling out of my heart !! Sometimes you have to step out of the front door to see the beauty of the house that was built all the details and amenities… When you do that you grow fond of the hard times and hardwork that was put into the building process ! I love my hubby and all we really needed was a moment to see it from a builders point of view and not the homeowner ! God is good and I think other people can relate to it because it is so real and vulnerable!

Following the season finale on Monday, “Space And Time” debuted on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts at number #11. In addition, the track is from her new EP, “Rose Water” which is set to be release soon. Kalenna is also set to release her debut album – Black Orchid early 2016.

Wasting time’s a waste of time
Missing you doesn’t help
Thinking bout you it came to mind
Need to spend some time with myself
Cause every time I’m thinking
I think about you
I think I need to be the one to
Think of me
Think about me…

Master of the pen and melody, James Fauntleroy has still yet to announce any project release date.

Fly Interview: LHHATL’s Kalenna Talks New Music, Writing for Artists Like Tinashe, Diddy Collaboration more

kalenna at sfpl tv

Kalenna Harper dropped by the studios of SFPL TV to talk her recent and past music endeavors, writing for artists like Tinashe and Monica, her upcoming EP Rose Water and album Black Orchid, plus much more.

The established music vet also speaks on the state of R&B, which she feels like is no dead:

R&B never left. I think that what happened was the R&B singers got caught up in wanting to do what Hip Hop artists do, beacause Hip Hop is “f**kin cool,” it’s a lifestyle.

Kalenna went on to say, that most R&B artists need to just go back to the drawing board, dig through the archives of; Jodeci, R. Kelly, and more. Praises: Tinashe, Sevyn Streeter, Ne-Yo, The-Dream and Rico Love for sticking to real R&B music, and writing great songs.

In Part 2 of the interview, She also reveals a new collaboration with her past Dirty Money cohort, Diddy on her new album project ‘Black Orchid.’

Wanting to be apart of the recent BET Awards 2015 “Bad Boy Reunion” performance, Kalenna also talked about the good ole’ DDM days and killed rumors about Diddy leaving her and Dawn Richard broke with no money, after the group split.

Dawn Richard of Diddy’s Dirty Money Releases Cover Art for Digital Single “December Sky”

Singer/Songwriter, Dawn Richard (formerly of Diddy’s Dirty Money) has released the cover art for her holiday single, “December Sky”. The song, written and produced by herself and frequent collaborator Druski (Save Me From U) finds the songstress giving Earthly gifts to her lover as they aren’t able to be around each other during the holiday season.

“A lot of people won’t be able to see their loved ones this Christmas,” says Richard. “Whether they are serving in Iraq/Iran, in the industry or working a 9 to 5, the truth is a lot of us aren’t able to make it home for the holidays. So this record is for them and anyone else missing their love – the sky and stars are a gift for us both because no matter how far apart we are, we are under the same sky.”

December Sky is available on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and the iPhone Store beginning December 1, 2011.
