The album kicks off with self-explanatory song “Judge Me” where K. Michelle proclaims that she is perfectly flawed and her naysayers can judge her all they want, after all she is only human.
One of the album’s official singles is “Love Em All,” a song where she explores her relationships with men. She realizes that she moves to fast from man to man. She’s a heartbreaker. They think she loves them but she “loves” them all.
K. Michelle asks love not to count her out or let her down. With the stress her relationships seem to bring, she wonders how she keeps from “Going Under.”
K wants her man to suffer for everything he has done to her. He owes her for all the years she put into their relationship. She wants him to feel her pain and break down and “Cry.”
On “How Do You Know,” she wonders what you should do when you’ve already given your all to a man and he continues to mess up.
K realizes that loving and missing her man is “Hard to Do.” She would much rather have sex with him.
She is jealous of the relationship between a man she had given her all to in the past and his new girl. K should have been in her position because she still loves him. “Maybe I Should Call,” she sings.
She can’t pinpoint what it is about this man that attracts her but there’s “Something about the Night” that’s giving her a different kind of high. She might just let him in.
“Miss You, Goodbye” is a relatable song about how much K. Michelle misses her ex and how he used to make her laugh but she doesn’t miss his lies. Although she misses him, she must say goodbye because she doesn’t think he will ever change.
K. Michelle reminisces about the men from her past that taught her certain lessons about men on “Build A Man Intro/Build a Man.” She also describes her perfect man and how she wishes she could build him.
Canadian rapper Drake is known for his “save em” approach when it comes to his women almost as much as he’s known for his music. On the song “Drake Would Love Me,” K envisions a relationship with the rapper and how perfect it would be. She would be the apple of his eye and he would treat her like his grand prize.
K. Michelle closes the album with the song “God I Get It.” She admits that she’s a mess and keeps making the same mistakes which results in her learning the same lessons repeatedly.
It is oftentimes difficult for reality TV stars to separate their role on the show from their careers. K. Michelle is arguably one of the only singers who has been able to rebrand herself and make a name for herself outside of her reality show(s). K. Michelle is a great talent who has a knack for storytelling. She’s not afraid to admit her own flaws which is perhaps why so many women feel that they can relate to her.
