Kandi Burruss has returned -- spicier than ever -- with new single “Ready for This,” premiering exclusively on Billboard.com.

The slow-rolling track, which she co-produced with Jonathan “Jay-O” Henry and Troy Rodriguez, is an R-rated update for the singer-songwriter, who last released her sophomore album Kandi Koated in 2010 and most recently dropped her single “Fake People” this past February.

“I’ve been away from the music scene for a long time as a solo artist and wanted to come with something different,” says Kandi. “I collaborated with a new team and together we created a whole new sound that I’m in love with!”

Burruss, whose career milestones include penning hits including TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Destiny’s Child’s “Bug-a-Boo” and starring on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is releasing “Ready for This” in alignment with the launch of her inaugural adults-only fantasy world “Welcome to the Dungeon,” which begins Oct. 12 in Atlanta.
