Have you heard? K. Michelle has revealed the tracklist for her upcoming album, Kimberly: The People I Used to Know.

The Memphis-bred singer has not shied away from her struggles with picking songs for this album. In an interview with Billboard, K mentioned that with two albums left under her current contract at Atlantic Records, she wanted to knock out the requirement by turning in 30 songs to the label, fulfilling the rest of her contractual obligations. As she’s said many times before, her dream is to make a country album, as that’s what’s been her heart and how she originally came to fall in love with music.
Going back to the tracklist, For the People I Used to Know hosts three features: Jeremih on “Takes Two,” an outro from rapper Princess Nokia, and Chris Brown on the already-released banger “Either Way.” The 22-track album will be K’s fourth studio album, and this has been the longest gap in albums for the 33-year-old-singer.
The singer has already previewed some of the tracks: fan favorite “Heaven” on an Instagram Live session and a snippet of the DJ Camper produced jam “Kim K,” which has also gotten a good response from fans.
