From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Kandi Burruss (born May 17, 1976; also known just as Kandi) is an American R&B singer/songwriter.

She first entered professional music in 1992 as a singer in the successful vocal group Xscape. Burrus sang lead on hits such as "Just Kickin' It" and "Who Can I Run To," as well as wrote their early hits, including "Feel So Good" and "Can't Hang." After the group dissolved in the late 90s, Burruss continued as a songwriter.

Her most notable work is the TLC hit "No Scrubs," which won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best R&B Song, a songwriting award. She was also recognized as the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Award for Songwriter of the Year. She has continued to write for a number of pop and R&B artists. In 2000 she wrote "Bills, Bills, Bills" and "Bug-a-Boo," singles from Destiny's Child's The Writing's on the Wall album. She has also written for *NSYNC, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Faith Evans, and Alicia Keys. Many of her works were co-written and produced by her husband, Kevin "Shekspere" Briggs.

In 2000, Burruss signed to Columbia Records as a recording artist under the stage name Kandi. She released her first single as a soloist, "Don't Think I'm Not," in the summer of that year to fair success. The song peaked at #32 at R&B, and performed even better at pop radio (peaking at #12 on the Top 40 Mainstream chart) and the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at #24. Her debut album, Hey Kandi... peaked at #72 on the Billboard Hot 200 and sold reasonably well in its first few months on the chart. Her second single, "Cheatin' on Me," performed poorly. Despite modest success, she was dropped from Columbia as a recording artist, though she continues to write songs for other artists through the company.
