Leaving Matthew Knowles management and Columbia Records has got to be the best thing that Kelly has done! 1st she gets featured on the Grammy award winning single When Love Takes Over by French Dj David Guetta from his album One Love, then she drafted Jeff Rabham as her new manager and inked a deal with Universal Motown, which is also the home of big name artists such as Lil’Wayne, Busta Rhymes, and Legend Stevie Wonder. If that wasn’t enough, she signed up to record the MTN theme song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South African, entitled Everywhere You Go, featuring an all-star supergroup of international artists called Rhythm of Africa United. And now she’s now working on her 3rd studio album who’s title has yet to be released. The album is a combination of the urban/pop Destiny’s Child sound and Kelly’s new found love for dance music. Commander was released in May 2010 as an American promotional single and as the international lead single from the project. If that wasn’t enough, She already has the title and cover art work for the next 2 singles Grown Ass Woman and Rose Colored Glasses. iReally think that Kelly actually has a chance to prove that she’s just as good as Beyonce (better if you ask me).
The Rose Colored Glasses Single cover gives me this late 70’s early 80’s vibe. It’s simple and mysterious.
Grown Ass Woman’s single cover gives me straight 70’s. I’m talking Cher/Donna Summers Hair, Diana Ross makeup, and Grace Jones pose technique fierce level 1. iLove it ! ! ! ! ! !
We have double the Kelly 2day! Kelly Rowland covers the July issue of Cosmopolitan South Africa magazine. iAm really loving this exotic Indian weave she’s rockin. Not to mention that she looks great and those legs are amazing! Check her out!
Rihanna’s cover issue of Elle magazine features a spread of Kelly Rowland. Kelly has always been my favorite member of Destiny’s Child. Even though I’m not a big supporter of her like iShould be, iStill care 4 her! Kelly has never been the stand-out member of Destiny’s Child as we know, nor has she ever been a dare to be different type of star. She always tends to play things safe and go with the flow. Even though Beyonce is more popular than Kelly and Michelle, Kelly has something that Beyonce doesn’t have…a big over seas fan base. Kelly may not be able to get a hit here in the states, she has plenty in Europe, Japan, and South America. Work Kelly! Make yourself relevant in the United States of the America, by being relevant in The United Kingdom of the seas !
