Miss Rowland hits the cover of Vegas Magazine this month, looking as fierce and future thinking as ever. Dropping into Las Vegas, she landed the cover shoot and, in an exclusive interview, talks about her hotly tipped fourth solo album.
Not giving away too much, Kelly Rowland hinted at the concept behind her new album, telling Vegas Magazine that, ‘I’m making this album for my ladies, oh, yes, and it is strong. All of the producers I’ve been working with get the concept so much that they brought in a little more aggressive—and sometimes masculine—approach, but there is a really incredible top line: I want to tell women how incredible we are, how our intuition is so spot-on. Sometimes we don’t listen to it, but it is the thing that can actually make us happier.’

And there was me thinking that 2011’s ‘Here I Am’, which featured sex charged ‘Lay It on Me’ and the domineering power of ‘Commander’ (featuring David Guetta), was aggressive enough… but maybe she’s hinting at another form of aggression. Kelly has also said that she has been taking the time to fine-tune a genre of music that she says is very close to her heart: classic rhythm and blues. She’s also cited current musicians that inspire her, one being Adele because, ‘ She is a storyteller’. The new album, which she started recording in February, will soon have its debut release and Rowland has reportedly finished shooting the video. JOY! We can’t wait.
For now we have no new music to share but we, at Swide, still can’t get enough of this photo taken at the Jay-Z and Kanye West ‘Watch the Throne’ concert in Paris, where you can see Kelly enjoying the gig with Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow and The-Dream. Awesome.
