Kelly Rowland has been quiet on the music front for quite some time. The former Destiny’s Child member dropped her album Talk A Good Game in 2013, and has been behind the scenes ever since. On this thankful holiday, Rowland has ended her musical silence with a self-titled single. “Kelly” is a fresh banger that draws heavy influence from the Atlanta trap sound.
Rowland knows the importance of self-love. She sings about her lavish life and gives herself props on the new single. At the same time, Rowland reminds listeners that she has her foot on the competition’s throat, singing that she refuses to remain humble anymore. She walks a thin line between rapping and singing and sounds more confident than ever over the bass-heavy instrumental. If we’re lucky, Rowland will deliver a new album sometime soon. In the meantime, enjoy “Kelly.”
