Watch: Kelly Rowland Performs New Song ‘Street Life’ Live

Published: Sunday 26th May 2013 by Sam

From the bedroom, to band mates, to abusive boyfriends, Kelly Rowland is proving that she does indeed know how to ‘Talk A Good Game’ on her fourth studio album.

And, with the June 18th release of the LP drawing nearer, the new X Factor USA judge is clearly keen to show the masses what else the project has on offer.

As earlier reported, Rowland performed at the Riverfest in Little Rock, Arknasaw last night, delighting with live renditions of some of her much-loved hits. However, another performance has since surfaced of new track ‘Street Life’.

Produced by Pharrell Williams, the song relays a narrative of hustle and struggle in today’s age. Kelly sings “everybody around me trying to get to the money, including me”.

Get a taste of ‘Street Life’ after the jump…


All too often R&B acts refuse to deviate from the tried and tested topic of “love”. Hence, it’s warming to see Kelly break that mould – serving up a track with both lyrical depth and a banging beat. We’re liking what we hear…are you?

  22. jay May 26, 2013

    Talk a good game is starting to sound like a mesh of simply deep/ms Kelly and here I am.It has the meaningfulness of simply deep,the urban flair of ms Kelly and the sexiness of here I am.I also love how Kelly had changed peoples perception on the the album within two weeks,people where like she can’t sing about but s**…now they singing a different tune.#talkagoodbop LOL

  23. DIGGER BEY May 26, 2013

  25. D May 26, 2013

    So annoying this pitting an artist against another. Why ciara name tho. Let her be. She does that rnb pop and slow jam that’s HER lane. Kelly creating her lane. Let these ladies be damn

  26. bella May 26, 2013

    The worse thing than being kelly is being the other chick from destiny’s child

    I’ve never seen someone’s career go down hill like kelly’s well besides michelle,le toya,lavita and the other chick with the attitude that got dropped 2days later after joining DC idk her name ……any who my point is kelly is a flop !!! #Beyonces shadow !!! And the kellyrolldownthecharts will deal

  27. meliss May 26, 2013

    But I stan for Kelly she my girl and Im obsessed with supportung her Because she worth it.
    I think this time she will show everyone.

  28. nick May 26, 2013

    This is really good. I am buying three copies of Talk A Good Game. I wish Kelly would release her album a week later because there is too much competition on the 18th. Rowlandstones please buy two copies each at least and give your friends and families so that they know about our queen Kelly.

  29. Sterling Infinity May 26, 2013

    She’s not joking this time and it shows!

  30. DIGGER BEY May 26, 2013
