Video: Kelly Rowland – ‘Summer Dreaming’

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland soaks up the sun in the feel-good video for “Summer Dreaming.” In honor of Bacardi’s 150th anniversary, the R&B diva has teamed up with the liquor company for a remake of Kate Yanai’s ’90s hit “Summer Dreaming (The Bacardi Song),” which topped the German charts over a decade ago. She shot the colorful clip poolside in Barcelona, rocking some summery fashions and getting behind the DJ booth.

“The story is all about the celebration,” said Kelly, who will perform the song live in Berlin on July 8. “It’s almost like you’re seeing my dream come to life before your eyes and I wake up and I’m like, ‘I’m really dreaming!’”

The 31-year-old singer is putting the finishing touches on her fourth album. “It’s a very urban, R&B, sexy, unexpected record on this next album. It’s gonna make you think. It’s gonna make you wonder,” she said.

    @misty, This isn’t R&B but at least she’s light skin in the video. They dont have her as dark as usual. Great lighting. It does take wonders to make Kelly look decent.

    @Roman Zolanski, She sucks, but I’m so glad she wasn’t so Dark in this video. Glad they made her Lighter. But, she’s come a LONG way from the DC days, where she had the long big, yellow teeth.

    I can’t believe how much she has transitioned into such an independent, beautiful, and sexy woman. Only a few years ago people were always comparing her to Beyonce and saying she would never escape her shadow (and I thought that too) but I seriously don’t even think of Beyonce when I see Kelly now. She’s definitely carved out her own lane and I am loving everything that she is doing. I can’t wait for the new album!!!

    @Kyle, Pump the brakes. She’s still not a Star on her own. She continues to Flop each album. Lets be real.

    I love Kelly. But I just don’t know about this vid. I just don’t understand Kelly as a solo artist.

    She is really trying to make her way on her own. But lets face it, she will never be able to do so. She’s too dark.

    @MinajRules2012, She already has made her way. She was the first one in the group to have a #1 single on hot 100 and won a Grammy. Not to mention her big hit last year which won her several awards and a Grammy non! If that ain’t makin it on your own then idk!

    @Jlo Promo, I think she means Kelly will never be on a pop star level with the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Britney, Kesha, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown etc.

    She had that #1 single on the Hot 100 10 years ago (as a featured artist on Nelly’s single) and has since flopped the charts. Kelly is still an underrated R&B artist.

    @Timo, Hmmmm, that’s a lie! The song “When Love Takes Over” with her and David Guetta went #1 and also got her a grammy. “Commander” which is also HER single went #1 on the dance charts as well.

    And she did get a nomination for “Motivation” at the grammy’s. Not to mention it went #1.

    Yes, she is an “underrated” artist, but don’t make it seem as if she’s some type of “flop” artist.

    I bet if Kelly’s albums got as much promo as Rihanna and Beyonce’s did, she could hit those numbers as well.

    Jealousy makes u nasty. 4 some ppl winning is havin dat hot 10
    num 1. As to why they dnt see that only whites go to #1 i dnt knw. U ain’t neva gonna c a black chick or guy go 2 #1 ever again unless their bosses pay da radios 4 da 1st single…eg Rihanna. Sometimes even #5 if bosses paid….eg STARSHIPS. Not even bey could go to #1 even tho 4 was similar if nt beta dan 21. US WILL ALWAYS BE RACIST. TOo bad UK seems to be following in the same foot steps. Luk at alex. Burke new Lp. Good material but the radios won’t play her music why? She black. Fuck em whites

    if ou havent noticed this style of music has been her avenue for a few years besides the US “Motavation” joint… because of the sales. Who, what, when. Kelly, your late, U.k, coin. Theres a few ways to skin a cat and she found the perfect method… this is a good sound, sales and gets promotion. now shut up and sit down. ciao

    Kelly, you my girl. When the group first came out (Destiny’s Child) Kelly was always my number one. Such beauty and talent. I knew Beyonce was goona do a Diana Ross on the group sooner or later. It is a shame that Kelly doesn’t get enough recognition!!
