R&B diva Kelly Rowland bares almost all in these sizzling new promotional shots for her third studio album – ‘Here I Am’ (due July 26th). The tasteful shoot was shot by noted photographer Derek Blanks.
Check out more pics of Ms. Kelly, whose promotional run next week includes a performance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, below…
After notching up yet another top 10 with ‘Notorious’, fierce fivesome The Saturdays are back with its follow-up ‘All Fired Up’. The single is the second to be lifted from their as yet untitled third studio album (fourth if counting ‘Headlines’ EP).
