Either Way
by K. Michelle (featuring Chris Brown)

Album: Kimberly: The People I Used to Know (2017)
  • "Either Way" finds a braggadocious K. Michelle addressing her haters:

    Either way I'm gon' be straight, damn my life is great
    Sleepin' good at night
    In the morning, eatin' eggs and steak


    Michelle recalled the recording of the song to Billboard: "I got in there, had my edibles, my Jack Honey [whiskey] in hand and just sang. It ended up being my favorite because it's so much fun. This is one of the album's shake-your-ass moments. It's just saying, 'Everybody's not going to like what you have to say. The sooner you realize that, you'll be all right either way.' I did that record in 10 minutes - it's always easy for me to write the truth."
  • The song finds Michelle doing a little rapping. She said: "People forget I had a mixtape full of raps that got me my record deal [with Jive Records in 2009]. I paid for college through yodeling. I have always been into every type of music."
