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.
