Kelly Rowland has been everywhere in the last year or so. Hot off the heels of Here I Am, the CD that featured “Motivation”, her most successful single to date, she is back with a new CD, Talk A Good Game. The CD won’t be in stores until June 18th, but she is doing plenty to gear herself up for a high debut on the Billboard charts when it’s finally released. From her successful “Ice” single with Lil Wayne. to the extremely addictive Kisses Down Low and now she’s ready to air some of her “Dirty Laundry”. With “Ice”, I was initially skeptical of the song and wrote it off as an attempt to capture the thunder that was made with “Motivation”. Although “Motivation” is better in my opinion, I must say that “Ice” is a great listen as well. And “Kisses Down Low” is quite arguably the best R & B single to be released by a female artist in recent months. That song and the video are hot and I hope she gets some great success on that one.
Just last week, she teased fans with a 51 second clip of her new single, “Dirty Laundry” which was produced by her boyfriend The Dream. The single will officially be released on iTunes on May 21st. With his track record on hits like Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”, it will be interesting to see what he comes up with for the former Destiny’s Child beauty. Who knows if that pairing is just a strategic partnership, but whatever the case, the couple is milking it for all it’s worth. They recently announced their upcoming Lights Out Tour. It’s right on time for both artists as The Dream is also gearing up for his latest CD, IV Play, set for release on. May 28th. IV Play will also feature a duet with Kelly on the song “Where Have You Been”. With the exception of his first two albums, I think The Dream is much better suited as a songwriter and producer for other artists, rather than being the artist himself. But I’m still curious to hear how his new CD will sound.
It’s no secret that Kelly has also turned up the sex-o-meter on her image lately and looks a lot more voluptuous than she did in her hey day with Destiny’s Child. Hmmm… but possible augmentations aside, there’s no denying that her album artwork for the new CD and slick music video production signals that she’s probably not yearning for a Destiny’s Child reunion any time soon. Plus she looks better than ever. Will you be buying Talk A Good Game when it hits stores on June 18th?
