NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2014) -  Coming off the smash season finale of her hit VH1 show "K. Michelle: My Life," singer/songwriter K.

Following the release of singles "Maybe I Should Call," "Love 'Em All," and "Something About The Night," the album garnered countless reviews across the country. Billboard named the album one of 2014's Best R&B records, while Complex proclaimed, "K. Michelle is leaps and bounds ahead of many of her peers." In regards to the standout track "Drake Would Love Me," USA Today said the record is a "anthemic big-stadium R&B ballad" and the New York Times stated that the song is "great clickbait soul."

During the week of release for Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?, K. Michelle gave a striking performance on "Wendy Williams" along with an interview with Wendy regarding the album and her relationships.
