Kelly Rowland will release her hotly anticipated fourth full-length solo album, "Talk A Good Game" [Republic Records], this Tuesday, June 18 in stores and through all digital outlets. The Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum diva is also set to ring in the record's release with a performance on ABC's "Good Morning America" that same week.
"Talk A Good Game" is already shaping up to be the pop and R&B event of 2013. In order to prepare audiences for what's to come on the collection, Rowland recently unleashed the seductive and sultry hit "Kisses Down Low." In less than a month, its video has accumulated an impressive 7.4 million YouTube/VEVO views. The track has also become a mainstay at radio on Urban, Rhythmic, and Mainstream formats, and it's rising on iTunes.
Rowland also invited a bevy of heavy hitters to join her on "Talk A Good Game." Wiz Khalifa's breezy flow punctuates "Gone" with smoky elegance, while Pharrell Williams heats up the incendiary "Feet to the Fire." However, "You Changed" is a veritable pop/R&B event, seeing Rowland once again collaborate with her former group members Beyonce? and Michelle Williams.
As a founding member of Destiny's Child, she has cumulatively sold over 20 million albums worldwide. She has been honored with a total of 5 Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 15 Soul Train Awards, 4 American Music Awards, 2 MTV Video Music Awards, 1 BRIT Award, 1 BET Award, 1 NAACP Image Award, a Star on the "Hollywood Walk of Fame" and more.
