Our friends over at Rap-Up.com
are reporting that Kelly Rowland’s long-spoken of ‘Ms. Kelly’ re-release will be released in the US digitally
in March. No physical release date, if there will be one at all, has been announced.
Before the stans deem this the end of the world, it’s worth considering a few things. At this point, so much time has passed since the original release of the LP; a full-blown physical release would be risque IMO. By releasing it digitally to iTunes etc, it can be billed as a ‘for the fans’ type of affair. Still, it’s a little disappointing, considering how long it’s been spoken about. After wrapping up this record, perhaps Kelly will head back to the studio for album no.3?
With Kelly’s recent success over here in the UK (‘Work’ is still in the Top 10), I’m assuming the physical re-release of ‘Ms. Kelly’ will still go ahead here. – where its chances of success are high.
