Kandi Burruss has become such an integral part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that from time to time we forget that she began her career as a musician, first as a member of the all-girl group Xscape and later as a solo artist.

But now Kandi is getting back to her musical roots, and we couldn’t be more excited for her! The engaged star made the big announcement on her Instagram page yesterday, January 16, writing, “I have a new single coming Jan 21st! Go to iTunes now to hear a sneak peek! It's called #LetThemLove https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/id797052244 please repost.”

The cover art for the new single — which Kandi Instagrammed to go with the above caption — features her name written in an elegant script above a heart made out of a colorful combination of flames and smoke, which pops thanks to the completely black background. Under the fiery heart is the name of the single, “Let Them Love.”

We followed the instructions outlined in Kandi’s caption and headed over to iTunes to give the new track a listen and were totally sold by what we heard. Although it’s only a preview, we we’re already blown away by Kandi’s powerful vocals — which sound even crisper and stronger than we’ve heard in the past.

As you may have guessed from the title, the song is about letting people love whom they choose. We don’t think Kandi is the kind of gal who would go after her mother in a song, but Mama Joyce may want to take a listen just in case. “Let a person love who they love/ Why would you wanna be the cause of someone’s breakup?”, Kandi belts out.

So far, reactions to the track are very positive, with iTunes listeners and Instagram followers agreeing that the new song has a great sound.
