Kelly Rowland On Steamy New Album: “I Was A Lot More Intimate”
Kelly Rowland is fulfilling her own destiny, these days. After the reunion with Destiny’s Child and announcing the GRAMMY award for best new artist, she offered some revealing news about her forthcoming album, which she promises will inspire a new conversation.
Her latest single, “Kisses,” details a women in control. “I like my kisses down low, makes me arch my back,” she sings, “When you give it to me slow, baby just like that.”
“I think it’s important for a lady to express that that’s the way it should be handled some times,” she told Big Tigger of V-103/Atlanta.
The album’s sensual feel caused her to re-think the title.
“I condensed it down to about 14 songs for this album,” she said. “It encouraged me to change the title. I was a lot more revealing, a lot more intimate. It’s called Talk A Good Game, now.”
In 2011, Kelly dove into after-hours music with the Lil-Wayne-assisted single, “Motivation.” She has since become a go-to featured artist, recently appearing on singles from Big Boi (“Mama Told Me”) and Future (“Neva End”) at the same time.
With Talk A Good Game, Rowland promises to further push the envelop.
“After you hear this album and the songs, we are going to need another conversation,” she said. “You’re gonna have a lot of questions and I’m going to answer them all.”
