Talk A Good Game: Kelly Rowland Talks About Baring It All On New Album

Kelly Rowland should be really excited: she’s been busy hosting red carpet shows for major awards shows and she’s prepping for a new album.

Rowland’s new album, Talk A Good Game, is due out in June and much like her last album, she has some heavy hitters putting their stamps on songs with hopes of her cranking out hits.  Her first single, “Kiss Down Below” was produced by Mile WiLL Made It (or just Mike Will) and is slowly picking up steam.  Also confirmed on the album? Tracks produced by Boy Wonder, The Dream and Pharrell, who, as usual, also lends his voice in vocals.  Kelly says the album will be very soulful and straight up R&B music.

But that’s not all. Kelly told Billboard that one of the songs on the album produced by Pharrell will feature her Destiny’s Child sisters, Beyoncé and Michelle. But don’t get it twisted: this is not a reunion.  As Kelly simply put it:

“It’s not a Destiny’s Child track, it’s me featuring Beyoncé and Michelle.”

Kelly told not only Billboard but Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club that the album is really about her getting to a very honest place. She has no problem “going there” in order to reveal her feelings about a lot of subjects, whether it be life, relationships or sex.

Hopefully, Talk A Good Game will give Kelly the musical boost in the United States she seems to be seeking.  While her 2011 single “Motivation” was a hit, the album it was featured on, Here I Am, has still only sold about 270,000 copies.

Good luck to the gorgeous Kelly Rowland!

Are you a fan? Why do you think she isn’t a bigger artist at this point?

    You know Kelly, I love you, I do. But this solo music career…. It’s not that you cannot sing, it’s that, besides Bad Habit, you’ve yet to put out a song I want to keep singing and listening to. You’ve very much become a female Trey Songz in the music business. I’m beginning to consider you more of a video vixen than a singer. I feel like I say this all the time, but if Kelly Rowland, Ciara, and Keri Hilson ditched this music business thing and tried modeling, you couldn’t stop them.

    I will be buying Talk a Good Game! Her fan base is growing, and I believe she will sell more units this time around. Blessings, KR!

    The reason Kelly is not a bigger artist is because her singing ability is not where she thinks it is. That is the reason she can have a hit single but not a hit album. Folks are not going to pay money to listen to an entire album of Kelly. As much as I like her, she simply doesn’t have what it takes to concur the music business as a solo artist. She should stick to hosting red carpet events and singing hooks for rappers.
