Kandi Burruss’ pen is the gift that keeps on giving. Even when it comes to memes.
Last month, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star went viral for a song she wrote in 2014. In a video posted to her TikTok page on May 18, Kandi steps down from her trailer at the Lovers and Friends festival — where her group Xscape performed — and gives a little spin and dance to show off what she’s working with. As both the song and caption she used to reflect the mood, she was giving “Legs, Hips, Body.”
Shortly after posting that, the sound took off as some were reminded of the tune from her original stage play “A Mother’s Love” and others were just hearing it for the first time. In an old clip from a scene, Kandi sings about how good her man has it with her at home and does a choreographed dance alongside singer D. Woods, former “Housewives” co-star Porsha Williams and social media personality Funky Dineva.
Kandi said Jami Zeigler, who helps with her YouTube and social media, deserves the credit for resurfacing the song. She placed it on top of the video because the topic fit Kandi flaunting her body-ody backstage.
“At first, even when I first came back from the trip or whatever, I didn’t even post it immediately when she sent it to me. I had waited a few days and then I was thinking, I was like, ‘Dang, I ain’t even posted nothing on a TikTok in a minute. I’m just going to throw this on there,’” she told HuffPost. “So it was so random. I just posted it up on a Thursday, I guess. Then by Saturday morning, my friends were calling me like, ‘Girl, you going viral.’ I was like, ‘Oh, please don’t let it be something bad.’”
