Kelly Rowland Talks New “Uptempo” Album

Published: Sunday 22nd Jan 2017 by Sam

Kelly Rowland looks set to bring the tempo with her long-awaited new album.

The Destiny’s Child graduate turned solo Grammy winner has yet to release a body of work since 2013’s ‘Talk A Good Game.’ In the time since, she’s gotten married and had her son Titan Jewell. She’s also turned her attention to a slew of other projects in the TV, cosmetic, and literary arenas.

Music is still in the mix, she assures.

Speaking in a new interview, Rowland revealed that her upcoming material aims to dominate the dance-floor.

Head below to see what she had to say…

Chatting to the Lenny Letter, Ms. Kelly said of the as yet untitled LP:

It’s happy. I said I wanted a record full of up-tempos. A lot of my albums and songs have been slow, except for tracks like “Commander” or “When Love Takes Over.” I said I wanted this record to be happy because we need that right now, more than ever. That’s where my heart is.


We’ve been harping on forever and a day about how much of a slay it’d be for Kelly to pick up the pace musically. As such, it’s great to hear that she’s doing exactly that.

For, while the seductive coos of ‘Motivation’ and ‘Ice’ delivered delicious results and definitely made sense at the time, she shines most – both as a vocalist  and performer – with high octane material.

She can really beast a stage when she wants to, something uptempos provide the perfect climate for. What’s more, with so many R&B acts all on the same minimalist, faux-90s wave, serving “dance-floor diva” would be a smart means of setting oneself apart from the pack.

  19. Grapejuice fan January 22, 2017

    “Here I Am” was a great album !!!!

    • Mc90 January 22, 2017

      Each song should have had a video

      • Mc90 January 22, 2017

        Should have had*

  20. Pat January 22, 2017

    That video reminded me that as much as i love her. Her level of talent has more to do with why her career never went to the stratosphere. The opportunities have been there.

  21. Meteorite January 22, 2017

    So does this mean I will not get to hear the rest of “Conceited”?

  22. Shakira Stan January 22, 2017

    Who is checking for this flop b****

  23. Kyle January 22, 2017

    If I had to pinpoint my favorite moment of Kelly’s career I would have to say it’s when she collaborated with David Guetta off his “One Love” album. She just sounded more confident than EVER on those tracks. Therefore, this news makes me super happy!

  24. Wonder Woman January 22, 2017

    LMAO, where are these accounts coming from???
    Anywayz I’m here for her, been here since Motivation

  25. Truth Tella January 22, 2017

    I don’t why but I’m kind of ready for a DC3 reunion. I’m not gonna lie, I still watch some of their old performances from the early 2000’s. Those were some good times I missed those times when music was fun and exciting.

  26. Rowlandstone January 22, 2017

    We are ready kelly

  27. Jason January 22, 2017

    She better not just throw the project out, and start praising Beyonce’ again!! Focus, girl!! You could really kill the game if you wanted!! I’m here for it!

  28. Hope9 January 22, 2017

    This lady Gaga fans are so annoying coming for Kelly. Betch GTFO, she said what she said about Lady Flop Superbowl, has never been as LEGENDARY as Destiny’s Child and NEVER will. Now bye.

    Excited for some new Kelly’s music and hopefully we will a new collaboration with the girls ❤ 🐝

  29. KelendriaScalpLand January 22, 2017


  30. HOWYOULIKEIT January 22, 2017

    Here I Am album was full of uptempos so it wont be the first time.
    I hope she has songs like grown ass woman in this album. I dont know what happened to that good song

  31. DanYiel Iman January 22, 2017

    Anything anyone from Destiny Child puts out I buy..♥️

  32. Sincere January 22, 2017

    I’m ready for it. Seems like with this project she took her time. Coming from a true fan of hers one of my favorite albums from Kelly was Ms Kelly beside TAGG even though I like them all. Hope she still put a touch of strong love songs.

    • HOWYOULIKEIT January 22, 2017

      Ghetto from miss kelly is one of my favorites

    • Angela Wesley January 23, 2017

      Sincere, I totally agree with you, but I would also include
      Simply Deep.

  33. Jamie January 22, 2017

    So excited!!!!

    As for Gaga fans, Kelly didn’t say anything at all. I guess nowadays in such a carnal world even silence isn’t so golden.smh

    Anyways, bring on that album Kelly!!!!

  34. KelendriaScalpLand January 22, 2017

    OMG i need the LEAD single like today!!!!!

  35. Sheree Whitfield stan January 22, 2017
