K. Michelle - I Just Can’t Do This

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
R. Kelly
Album:
Pain Medicine

Despite a wealth of talent and drive (see her last DJBooth-approved feature Fallin), Memphis crooner K. Michelle has struggled to move forward with her debut album Pain Medicine. But now that none other than R. Kelly has signed on to executive produce the album, nothing but bright skies should lie ahead. The first proof of Michelle and Kelly’s collaborative efforts comes in the form of the new single I Just Can’t Do This, a deeply soulful cut built around lush, classic R&B production from Kelly, who also wrote the track. Thankfully, Michelle is far from outshined by The Pied Piper’s contributions as she delivers a dynamic, captivating vocal performance that should draw immediate comparisons to Keyshia Cole; not because they sound alike, but because they both are capable of injecting passionate emotion into their voices. I don’t know what to tell you. If you’re not feeling this, you might not have a soul - and if K. Michelle keeps putting out tracks like Can’t Do This, it’s only a matter of time before we have some Pain Medicine to ease what ails us.
