Kelly Rowland Announces ‘Talk a Good Game’ Release Date

Kelly Rowland

Mark your calendars. Kelly Rowland has finally set an official release date for her fourth solo album.

Talk a Good Game will arrive on June 18, it was announced by Republic Records. The Grammy-winning singer, who just made PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful list, will celebrate the release with a performance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that same week.

She has called on some heavy-hitters for the follow-up to 2011’s Here I Am. The guest list includes Wiz Khalifa (“Gone”), Pharrell (“Feet to the Fire”), The-Dream (“Dirty Laundry”), Harmony, The Runners, and Mike WiLL Made It, who produced the lead single “Kisses Down Low.” She also reunites with her Destiny’s Child groupmates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams on the soulful “You Changed.”

The music was inspired by classic R&B including New Edition, Pebbles, and Babyface. “[It] feels like everything I wanted to make as far as music and R&B,” Rowland told Billboard. “I wanted to make sure my roots were really pronounced on this album.”

She will launch a co-headlining tour with The-Dream this summer in support of the album. Dates have yet to be announced.
