It’s no secret that we’d love to see the immensely talented Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss appear on Glee. After all, her RHOA co-star NeNe Leakes has done a fabulous job as Coach Roz . In fact, we’ve already come up with five roles that would be perfect for Kandi.
However, even if the show doesn’t find a way to include Kandi herself, we’d still like to hear more of her tunes on the show. Glee has previously done amazing renditions of “No Scrubs” and “Bills, Bills, Bills,” which Kandi wrote. So here are the five other Kandi songs that Glee still needs to do, whether they’re tunes that she’s performed or has written.
5. “Just Kickin’ It” by Xscape
It’s a little hard to believe that Glee hasn’t yet covered a tune by Kandi’s group, Xscape. And Xscape’s biggest hit, “Just Kickin’ It” — which went platinum in 1993 — would be just the kind of upbeat throwback number that New Directions could knock out of the park. Or maybe Blaine (Darren Criss) could sing it to Kurt (Chris Colfer) while the two are relaxing on their sure-to-happen honeymoon?
4. “Don’t Think I’m Not” by Kandi Burruss
Kandi has written so many songs for other people, it might be easy to forget that she herself had a burgeoning pop career at one time. This song was her debut solo single from 2000, and we think that this catchy screw-you anthem would be perfect for, say, Marley (Melissa Benoist) to sing to Jake (Jacob Artist). Get it, girl.
3. “There You Go” by Pink
2. “Who Can I Run To” by Xscape
1. “Bug a Boo” by Destiny’s Child
We’re a bit concerned that Santana (Naya Rivera) and Dani (Demi Lovato) are headed to a possibly heated split, given that Dani probably won’t be on the show too much longer. So we can imagine Santana busting out this awesome jam, which Kandi also wrote. Plus, we kinda love that AOL shout-out in the lyrics. Ah, the late ‘90s.
