Kalenna Harper is best known as the singer-songwriter who was 1/3 of Diddy’s Dirty Money but this week she made up a pop up on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta hanging with Karlie Redd at the mall. Kalenna will be back for more fun and drama this season but we decided to creep and take a look into her past.
Kalenna has written hits for the likes of Christina Aguilera, Aretha Franklin and The Pussycat Dolls. She also has appeared on tracks from Three 6 Mafia, Trina, Ciara and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s own Rasheeda. In 2012 Dirty-Diddy Money disbanded but Kalenna has continued to make music releasing a mixtape Chamber of Diaries that same year. Most recently she announced her next mixtape Black Orchid and we found a taste of it.
We’ve assembled some of our favorite non-Dirty-Diddy Money samples from Kalenna so have a listen to her unreleased duet with Lady Gaga, her solo work, and her singing the hook for RaSheeda.
“Kaboom” was leaked in 2008 before Lady Gaga was Lady Gaga and before Kalenna was part of Diddy Dirty Money. It’s pretty siiick.
“Go To Work” from Chamber of Diaries is pretty great and that haiiiiiir. Yas, kween.
Kalenna guested on Rasheeda’s “Pack Ya Bags” and I ain’t mad about it.
