'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Country Song Duel: Kim Zolciak Versus Kandi Burruss (Video)
Two Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members, two country songs: Which one hits the right note and which hits a new low?
Things have been rocky between The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mates Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss after they disagreed over royalty payments for “Don’t Be Tardy For The Party” – at least that’s what happened on-screen.
Kandi produced the song for Kim and it was a hit with more than 100,000 downloads and Kim felt Kandi shouldn’t share much in the profits. This season, the two have tried really hard to get past the issue.
Now, there’s a new musical showdown going on between the cast mates as Kim has released a country ballad while Kandi has been working on one during the current Atlanta season with country singer Jo Dee Messina.
Listen to a short bit of Kim’s newly released “Love Me First” (full version here) and then an early version of Kandi's untitled track below.
