No More Dirty Money? Kalenna Kicks Off Solo Career

​ ​ ​ ​

Looks like Diddy-Dirty Money is dunzo...at least for now.  Group member Kalenna Harper just kicked off her solo career, and says Dirty Money is no longer on her plate.

 

Check out her new promo pic with her new look inside....

Singer/songwriter Kalenna debuted on the scene as 1/3 of Diddy-Dirty Money, who won for Best Group at the 2011 BET Awards, alongside Diddy and Dawn Ri'chard.  But now, the 29-year-old says the group is no longer her concern--her solo career is:

"As of now, Kalenna is solely focusing on her solo career and that is all that concerns her at the moment," her rep tells TheYBF.com. "Dirty Money is a hind thought and doesn't seem to be in any future plans."

Kalenna is set to release "Got To Work," her debut solo single and viral visual on 11/11/11.  She describes her music as "experimental harmonies over worldly tracks paired with lyrics from a diary tucked deeply into
a heart that has beat to and for so many." 

Looks like Diddy-Dirty Money is on an indefinite hiatus...or will be getting a new member.

man Diddy cant do ANYTHING

man Diddy cant do ANYTHING with artists man.... No up and coming artists should nver do any type of management with Diddy/Badboy---whatever. It never lasts... look at carl thomas, dream (the white girls) G Dep, Making the Band 1 AND 2, Craig Mack, Danity Kane... Diddy works best solo. He can promote the hell out of some CIROC tho lol

Sean Combs knows how to ruin

Sean Combs knows how to ruin talent. He has always taken these acts threw himself on their tracks as if he makes them better and then he dumps them. Look at Dream, Danity Kane, that boy band, and all the others. I would NEVER sign with his label if I was looking for longevity. These girls will do fine without him, but they will almost have to start over again. Good luck to them.

I wish her luck and she is beautiful. @anonymous that made the comment about her looks and how they talked badly of her. That sound like something that would come from the Piddy camp. Stop being so negative, just because someone is moving on.

Methinks she jumped shi[ way

Methinks she jumped shi[ way too early. You have to build the group into something amazing while you get the most attention in order for your solo career to jump off hot and keep burning up the charts. Think Diana, Michael, Lionel, Gwen, Beyonce, Fergie, etc...

I love this girl. She's talented. She should NEVER ever reference Diddy or Dirty Money. Just discuss Kalenna and her art. That's it. She'll win. She's sexy too.

Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust for Diddy. And it is no surprise because this man is one of the shadiest business man ever. He sells fame to his artist, traps them with their contract and then bullies them for their money. NONE of his artists stay with him long term. At this point, he should stick to his ciroc gig.

I'm glad she finally realized

I'm glad she finally realized Diddy did not have her or Dawn's best interest at heart. Good luck to her. I remember I was back stage and they treated her so bad and called her ugly to her face. She may not be pretty but she has a soul and is nice. All bc she has a horse mouth does not mean you have to be rude to her and treat her like dirt. She should get some implants tho bc her boobs are non existent. She should have just been called Dirty Money and been in a duo with Dawn. She is very talented tho but I do not know if she is marketable or can sell out an arena let alone a theatre.

She's 29? Wow I thought she was about 36, 37. Well anyways, I am glad that she is progressing and doing her own thing. I will be listening out for her album.

Much success to her. I always

Much success to her. I always felt she and Dawn were way too talented to come off a Diddy's background singers. It would have been nice to see them continue as a duo like Zhane. Either way Good Luck to her!

To the idiot that had to

To the idiot that had to bring skin color into this, shut up and get a life! Her skin color has nothing to do with her voice. Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Rowland. Need I say more. You'll never hear the white folks arguing if they're too pale or tanned to make it into this music industry! Stop discouraging and focus on the positives!
