Kelly Rowland: The Commader n Chief

Kelly Rowland is getting ready to release a new album later this year. This will be her first album since parting ways with both Columbia Records and Music World Management(Mathew Knowles). Kelly teamed up with French producer David Guetta and they created a WORLD WIDE smash hit "When Love Takes Over". Kelly has just inked a new deal with Universal/Motown Records and even has new management! Things are looking good for Ms.Rowland, however this is only the beginning. I am extremely excited for Kelly but at the same time i am VERY nervous. Kelly has a completely new team behind her so I dont know what to expect from how she will be handled I just hope it will be 10 times better than the way she was handled in the past. With the success of her song with Guetta Kelly has decied to go in a "new" direction which is dance infused with R&B. I dont know why this surprises anybody Because Rowland was NEVER a strictly urban artist nor was DC. Kelly is gearing up for her 1st official single titled "Commander". This song is pure FIRE! Everytime I listen to it I just want to dance! I am still confused as to if this is only the international single or if the states will have the same single aswell. Rowland has been making her rounds and generating a nice little buzz for herself and I am soooooooo happy to finally see the wheels turning for the fresh new start to her career. Kelly was recently in London and did two VERY good interviews where she talked about EVERYTHING check them out:
