*Kandi Burruss recently dished with Glamour about Destiny’s Child’s 1999 hit single, “Bills, Bills, Bills,” which she co-wrote with the group along with producer Kevin She’kspere Briggs

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star revealed that her own romantic relationship at the time was the inspiration behind the track. 

“I use a lot of my past relationships as inspiration. The relationship I had been in prior to [writing the song], I took inspiration from it…though I didn’t tell them that. Now, this is the really funny part: One of the girls that was in the group was dating my ex at the time. So I didn’t tell them that some of the lyrics in there were inspired by him,” Burruss revealed.

“The part that was a clear inspiration—using my phone and pretending like he didn’t use it, driving my car and not putting any gas in it—that was real stuff that had happened to me! But I won’t tell you who from the group was dating my ex,” she added.

Burruss recently posted a photo to her Instagram showing her back in the recording studio.

“Being in the room listening to music with these guys got me feeling inspired!” Kandi wrote about hanging out with artist MalcUpNext, producer Mr. Hanky, and songwriter/engineer/producer Jayo Muziq.
