In a post-Kardashian world, choosing to star on reality TV is still a risky investment — you either rise to pop culture prominence or crash back to the plebian Earth in a pool of tears. For R&B singer K. Michelle, the bet paid off when she appeared on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, VH1’s voyeuristic look at the romantic lives of up-and-coming musicians. After the show, she was signed to Atlantic on the strength of her bedroom anthems. In March, Michelle released her third effort (and solid magazine joke) More Issues Than Vogue, an R&B record for Atlanta’s new auto-tune era, featuring production from hitmakers like T-Pain, Jeremih and The Mekanics.
