Got Em Like

Album: More Issues Than Vogue (2016)
  • This song finds K. Michelle recalling her past when she used to have to work as a stripper to pay the bills. The song was co-written and produced by T-Pain. "It's my roots," Michelle said. "I wanted a song that would work in the club and the strip clubs. Who better for that than T-Pain? He's a musical genius."

    "We discussed my past as a stripper, and that's what the song is about," she continued. "It's meant to be confident though. When I returned to Atlanta, it reminded me of my days of struggle when I didn't have anything. I got a gorgeous home, and I would have to pass by my old strip club every day on the way to the studio. It was super humbling."
  • The song samples the trumpet from OutKast's 1998 track "SpottieOttieDopaliscious."
