Kelly Rowland Discusses New Album, Destiny’s Child Reunion
Although Kelly Rowland has already released three solo albums and is now gearing up for a fourth, reuniting with Destiny’s Child for Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance garnered her a significant amount of attention. Speaking with Rolling Stone this week, Rowland discussed her upcoming release, Talk a Good Game, and touched on Destiny’s Child’s performance.
“Kisses Down Low” leads the release, but Rowland explained that it’s only one part of the album’s full story and not a full reflection of what’s more personal than in the past. She explained: “I'm really honest on this album. There's another song that I have, ‘Dirty Laundry.’ Even the title track is about relationships – the ins, the outs – all the interesting moments of relationships. I'm really ready for people to hear this album. It's kind of hard to keep it to myself.”
Taking a Taylor Swift-like approach, Rowland mentioned bringing up her exes in tracks and feeling “so stripped away and naked” during the songwriting and recording process. Being more personal, she revealed, wasn’t her decision. Rather, producer The-Dream asked her to be more open. Collaborating with her, additionally, are T-Minus, Boi-1da, Kevin Cossum, Rock City, and Mike WiLL Made It.
Shifting gears to talk about Destiny’s Child, Rowland admits that Keyshia Cole’s Twitter comments about Michelle Williams didn’t cross her mind. Instead, she said: “We had a wonderful performance, and that's all I cared about. I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that's all that counts. We matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her.”
