Kelly Rowland Talks Album Hold Up

Published: Friday 13th May 2011 by Sam

“It’s been a journey” Kelly Rowland says of her 3rd studio album ‘Here I Am’.

Needless to say, few would disagree with the Destiny’s Child star. For, after what feels like the longest recording session ever, not to mention a number of false starts, things are finally coming together for the singer’s project.

With a smash in ‘Motivation’ and the LP almost complete, Rowland has hit the promo trail in support of the single.

In this newly released VEVO ASK:REPLY segment, the songbird explains why she delayed the album, who she wants to collaborate with, juggling R&B and Dance, and much more.

    Kelly Boo. Keep doing what you do. I see you coming

  63. mobwife….”no, she aint you”!! May 13, 2011

    She looks good!

    I’m going to need her to stand on her own two feet and stop the “feminst party line”! At 30 you should know your own strength and not need other women to draw it out of you. I’m just a tad tired of that mindset!

    Fregie I could see but the Kanye and Drake references seem like the need for “quick hits” and I guess I’m not mad at her for that….LOL 🙂

    Motivation is still my jam. I think “Papa Knowles” is going to do right by her since Bey is now doing her own thing! I am interested to see the change in management for her under his watch this go around!!

  64. Kerry Johnson May 13, 2011

    LOL

  77. Auntie Jackie May 13, 2011

    I think people are really looking forward to hearing what Kelly has to offer this time around. She’s been on the scene serving up amazing dance hits and expanding her fan base. She has a beautiful face, a great personality, and I think she’s what the industry has been missing–less gimmick and more talent. More substance than style. I love all the members of Destiny’s Child, with me liking Beyonce much more in that past few years, I’m always happy to see the girls succeed. There kind of talent and personality is so rare these days.

    @ Kerry

    You just love Rihanna, don’t you! Every post ends up being about her. All I can say is, “That’s dedication.”

  78. kerron May 13, 2011

    Why “she” pushed her album back? More like her album’s decision considering she’s sold nothing. This blog is a joke, talking about her like she’s doing anything right now. You must have a talented staff of writers to turn this flop into sounding decent.

  117. Joan May 13, 2011

    Good Evening
    I know that this is kelly time. I am so happy for her. How many of you will be getting Kelly Rowland album when it come out. If you don’t like someone why even come on. go to the next one that you do like. Can any of you sing and if so why don’t we even hear from any of you.

  118. I’M SO INTO YOU May 13, 2011

  121. Jasmine May 14, 2011

    I think a fall release is dumb. She should be aiming for a summer release (eary July). Waiting till fall means that she is not capitalizing on the success of Motivation. The smartest thing to do would be to release an up-tempo track now and have two singles out that would help her sales for a summer release.

    IDK i love me some kelly but something tells me this chick doesnt believe in herself, like she believes the top spot is reserved for the likes of the gaga’s and the beyonce’s. i see so much potential in this chick and going back to the DC times i really thought she was going to be one of the music’s heavyweights even more than beyonce she had everything, but with her something is just lacking i just cant put my finger to it. i wish her well and hope she finds the success she deserves but thats all i can do she gotta do most of the job to convince people .

  126. bey hates her stans May 14, 2011

    @ARE YOU SERIOUS – i’m sure you a gay boy hating your own complexion wishing you could get ya’self a pretty white boy to f*** them blues right outta you. HUH
