Kelly Rowland: ‘I Found My Niche’

Kelly Rowland is starting over with a new album and label. She talks to the AP about what fans can expect from her third solo effort. “I feel like I found my niche,” says the “When Love Takes Over” singer. “[The David Guetta production] inspired the record and I can’t wait till everybody hears [it].”

Among those she’s working with are Guetta, Nelly, producer Jim Jonsin, and songwriter Claude Kelly. “I wanted this record to be empowering and to feel good to everybody. I’m so happy. I think that I’ve definitely done that,” gushes the beaming star.

The Destiny’s Child alum shows off her sexy side on the disc, due this year on Universal Motown. “I’ve always been a bit shy at times with my sensuality and I’ve come more into that this record—just fun, a freaky side. We all have one.”

    I have heard alot about this girl and her upcoming album. She’s been seen performing everywhere. From what I hear she has cooked up quite an album. I’m hearing the first single is going to be a big hit. So far i’ve heard her working with Ne-Yo, Danja, Bangladesh and more. She’s making moves. She’s not playing this time around. I like that.

    Some of you guys are just really….delusional. Kelly is not “doin it big” or whatever. Letoya hasn’t done anything big either. For you to be considered a hit artist, you have to be MAINSTREAM. And alot of people here just don’t get that. Beyonce is MAINSTREAM and dominates all formats, while Letoya only got a hit on the Urban charts. And that’s where she and Kelly will remain.

    @TJ

    Urban Charts?!?!? lol. That just goes to show you how out of touch you are when discussing Kelly Rowland. This chick’s latest single has shot to number one in OVER 5 COUNTRIES including the UK, Italy, and Romania and she wasn’t even signed to a record label when doing it. I’d like to know exactly what you call mainstream??? Because America does not equal mainstream. BTW she was number one on the Dance Charts. But they are not the whole world, so expand your horizans and in the future speak only when you are educated on these things because you sound very fooloish right now.

    @part

    lol I won’t slay you for your comment. But what you guys have to understand is that Americans are very fickle. They go with whats hot at the moment. All Kelly Rowland needs is to be on every show, every commercial, have your song played heavily on the radios and she’s gold. If her sound even resembles that electronic dance shit that they’re playing on the radio today then she’s got it. Pop stars are made everyday like this folks. It’s a formula. Just stick to it and you’re in. If that Kesha girl can become a star lol and so can Kelly Rowland.

    This proof that the labels and artist leak their own music. I have not heard one song from this girls new album. I respect Kelly becuase she’s sames like she in full control on every aspect of her future projects. As long as Kelly can deliver live vocally shes going to be just fine. Side note: I know she thanks god everyday for her and David Guetta crossing paths.
