Hard at work on her third studio album, Kelly Rowland appears to be making a number of power moves to elevate her status.
Full story after the jump…
The 29 year old, who recently confirmed that she has just two recording sessions left before wrapping the record, has re-teamed with noted industry figure Kim Burse.
Burse, as some of you may know, has and continues to serve as the Creative Director for all of Beyonce‘s tours and performances and worked extensively with Destiny’s Child right up until their ‘Destiny’s Fulfilled’ project.
This latest step comes on the heels of Rowland re-recording the bulk of her album – this go round hitting the studio with even more of the industry’s finest including Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, Tricky Stewart & The Dream, Ester Dean, Jermaine Dupri, and Bryan Michael Cox.
Kelly’s as yet untitled LP hits stores next year. In the meanwhile, peep Burse’s show-reel below..
Kudos to whoever is making all these greats calls, be it Kelly, the label or new manager Devyne Stephens. For, it was only the other day yours truly was thinking about the world of difference figures such as Burse can have for an artist. Indeed, having actual talent and making great material (which Kelly does) is such a small part of the equation in today’s visual era. Essential now in performances are the wind-machines, lighting, choreography, echo mics, and story-telling themes. All things Ms. Kelly could, would, and should be dabbling with to up her ‘diva’; and ultimately enhance what admittedly has at times been quite bare and lacking performances on her part in the past.
This all has me salivating for her new project and performances that much more! Can’t wait for the “first” single 😉
