She’s back! Kelly Rowland just released her first single in five years. The singer’s last major release was her album Talk A Good Game in 2013.
The self-titled track is edgy, sassy, and everything we love about Kelly. Just check out the lyrics:
“Kelly got a house, big house on a hill
Kelly’s so blessed, thick, yes XL
Kelly ain’t, Kelly ain’t got no chill
Kelly don’t really give a f*** how you feel.”
She came back like she never left, and reminded us that she has “class, a**, a man, whips, drip,” and a whole lot more!
In an interview with Vogue Australia over the summer, the songstress opened up about her long break from the music scene: “I was thinking about pulling back from recording but I couldn’t help myself, I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said, ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music!”
And we’re ready to listen.
In that same interview, she talked about how this is her most personal project yet. “It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest. I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record, it’s about friendship and marriage. The album also already has a title and a cover piece, though neither have been unveiled to fans just yet.”
Aside from the music, it was confirmed that Rowland will portray Gladys Knight in American Soul, the story of Don Cornelius‘ life and legacy. The actor also celebrated her fourth wedding anniversary with husband and manager, Tim Witherspoon earlier this year.
