Kelly Rowland Scores Hit; Deja Vu?

The proverbial middle child of Destiny, Kelly Rowland, is in an interesting position at the moment. After a shaky start to this era, the Grammy Award winner could possibly be at the brink of a crossover. With the biggest solo hit of her career ruling at urban outlets, and set to impact pop audiences soon, Kelly finally gained enough momentum behind her third studio album for Universal Motown to move forward with it’s release.

That momentum came in the form of ‘Motivation’, the Lil’ Wayne-assisted chart-topper, which was preceded by almost a year’s worth of “buzz singles” – ‘Commander’, ‘Rose Colored Glasses’, ‘Forever and A Day’, ‘Grown Woman‘ – and label/management kink ironing. The slinky, Jim Jonsin-laced bedroom cheer anthem, has topped the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for seven weeks, and peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100, so far. Despite delay, the certified hit cemented a previously elusive release date for Kelly’s held-up LP. ‘Here I Am’ will finally hit U.S. retailers Tuesday July 26.

Before it’s debut, we here at That Grape Juice want to take a look back at five albums that suffered from similarly delayed gratification. Five albums plagued by bombing singles, label issues, and leaks, until finally, stone cold redemption – a validated hit – saved the long delayed albums from release date purgatory, a la Teaira Mari.

Will You Be Buying Kelly Rowland’s ‘Here I Am’?

The last few years have seen many changes in the world that is Kelly Rowland.

From departing with long time manager Mathew Knowles, to becoming a notable player in the ever growing Euro-Dance scene with ‘When Love Takes Over‘ and ‘Commander’.

There is no disputing that recent years have taken Ms. Rowland from being one of Destiny’s Child‘s many anchors to being one of the world’s most anticipated performers.

Now with her third solo effort on its way to the general public on July 26th, fans and critics alike are waiting with baited breath to see how the LP will perform.

With its lead single ‘Motivation‘ enjoying multiple weeks at #1 and her performance at the BET Awards 2011 the undisputed showing of the night, there is little doubt that the album will exceed the achievements of its predecessors ‘Ms.Kelly‘ and ‘Simply Deep‘.

Will the ‘Rowman Army’ do enough to take ‘Here I Am’ to the top of the charts or will the album fail to live up to the high expectations placed on it.

We want to know what you think.
