Welcome to another edition of Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature which seeks to unearth some of TV and Film’s hidden/forgotten gems.

Today, we revisit 2005’s ‘The Seat Filler’ which starred Kelly Rowland, Mel B, Duane Martin, Kyla Pratt and Shemare Moore.

In it, Rowland plays a popular R&B singer who meets a man she believes is a high profile entertainment lawyer at an awards ceremony. However, it isn’t long before she discovers that all isn’t as it seems prompting romance and comedy to ensue.

    This movie was good and Kelly needs to be in a James Bond movie or action movie because I think she could kill it and she would be beautiful

    You need to upload “Do Like That”. It’s a song by a Nigerian artist named Korede Bello, but it features Kelly Rowland and it is CRAZY good. I hope this is one of the sounds that inspired the album she’s now cooking up. It’s so fresh and unique. I have a feeling Kelly is about to serve up pure FIRE, and the world aint ready.
