Kelly The New Dance Queen?
With so much going on in Music right now I have to say that I was surprisingly shocked at Kelly Rowland's new album. Having a chance to listen to it fully this weekend has me a true fan of hers. Kelly has completely took her time finding herself and her sound with the last years releases of "when love takes over" and "Commander" it was clear to the world that Kelly taking claim to the dance charts and the European audience as well.
Kelly began 2011 showing off this new sexier image making it clear she hadn't gone anywhere in fact she was working on a New project. Then in April 2011 we all got to hear something very different and sexually charged from Ms.Rowland "Motivation" feat. Lil Wayne. The song grew on the public quickly climbing up on the charts both R&B and Pop. The fire caught fast with the single and people really noticed when fellow DC member released a single to their upcoming album and Kelly's single surpassed it by a long shot by becoming #1 on the R&B charts and in the top 20 on the pop charts her highest honor as a solo artist.
With "Here I am" Kelly starts you off with a Female Anthem your sure to here in the clubs and in the car "I'm That Chick" where she's clearly letting them dudes know that "they can't buy her a ring that she can't buy herself" followed by "Work it man" Well I'm sure you can catch that one..lol
Then "Motivation" which always sets a crowd off "and when were done, I don't wanna feel my legs" Come on now...
Then it's a playful track "Lay it on me" Kelly is letting us know she can get it in with the best of them...The next track is another Female anthem "Feeling Me right now" Here Kelly is singing in 3rd person let it be known don't mess up her flow..
Followed up by "Turn it Up" an uptempo joint about forgetting the drama and sip and dance it all away. Next up "All of the night" which is mid tempo ballad style. very hot song. Here is where we finally get a full Ballad from Kelly "Keep it between us" this is a new spin on old skool love songs very mellow and sexy...
Kelly brings you back to the club with her 2010 hit "Commander" this song still has me on my feet..lol.. Then we end the standard version With a dance track "Down for whatever"
On the Deluxe Version Kelly goes back to a empowerment Ballad "Heaven & Earth where she is declaring her self worth. Then another dance track "Each Other" Very sexy vibe on this one very mellow but sexy and danceable.It's quite clear this is Kelly's Velvet Rope album where she isn't afraid to go there and have a good time doing it...
