K. Michelle’s new music is extremely candid. The singer, who just released a mini-movie musical off of her latest “Rebellious Soul-The Musical” directed by Idris Elba, is opening up about love, sex and drama within relationships. She sings about a woman falling in love and, sometimes, being in love with the wrong person.
On TV One’s “Verses and Flow,” K. Michelle sang “Can’t Raise A Man” for women who try to convince themselves they can change their men despite themselves. Check out a sneak clip of “Verses and Flow” above and find out what she has to say to the women in troubling relationships.

2. Kandi Burruss
Of course Kandi wrote the Grammy Award-winning TLC hit, "No Scrubs," but when we asked her what her favorite jam from the group was she said, "definitely 'Baby Baby Baby!' This guy I was dating at the time was actually in the music video! I was in high school at the time and I just love that song!"
3. Elle Varner
This is a rare one, but Elle's favorite TLC jam is "I'm Good at Being Bad" from the group's third album, Fanmail.
4. Teyana Taylor
"It’s so hard to choose just one because I can relate to all of them," Teyana said. "There are so many different songs with different messages, but I’d say 'Diggin' On You' and 'Unpretty.'"
5. Drew Sidora
Drew plays T-Boz in the TLC biopic so she's well versed in the group's discography. When it came to picking a favorite track, she told us her jam is "No Scrubs."
6. Brian White
"My favorite TLC song is 'Creep' because it had my good friend, Boris Kodjoe, in the video and it was really cool to see a friend of mine in a music video," White said. Editor's Note: Boris Kodjoe was actually in "Red Light Special."
7. K. Michelle
This 'Rebellious Soul' opted to give us her favorite TLC moment: "I think the highest point for me was the 'Waterfalls' video," she said. "They were able to talk about a lot of different and controversial topics and things that people were scared of. I consider myself an artist and I speak on things I shouldn't sometimes so I admire them!"
8. Mack Wilds
"This is in no particular order but I would have to say my top three are 'Switch,' 'Red Light Special' and 'Waterfalls'," Mack Wilds said (we know, it's so hard to choose!). "Those songs just feel good! All of them feel good but those in particular hit a certain place!" Watch "CrazySexyCool: A TLC Story" on VH1 October 21, 2013 at 9:00PM ET/PT.
