New Music: Kelly Rowland f/ Wiz Khalifa – ‘Gone’

Wiz Khalifa and Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland kicks her man to the curb on “Gone,” her collaboration with Wiz Khalifa. Over a snapping beat, produced by Harmony, the Destiny’s Child diva sings about a man who played with her heart and let her slip away. But she’s done putting up with his games.

Wiz lends some support to his “sister,” telling her man to pack his bags and hit the road.

The track borrows a sample from Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi,” which Janet Jackson also sampled on her 1997 single “Got ‘Til It’s Gone.”

In addition to Wiz, Talk a Good Game (June 18) features Beyoncé, Michelle Williams, Pharrell, Pusha T, and The-Dream.

Listen to Kelly say adios to her man on “Gone.”

    Feelin’ it, a lot, minus Kalifa’s versus unfortunately. Probably the one song that I have heard so far that it didn’t take me a couple of times to get used to. I may have to check out this album next week

    I listened to gone,no 1,street life,I remember,you changed,this is love and I have to say if this album doesn’t get Kelly the respect she deserves I don’t know what will.The quality of the songs,the lyrical content,Kelly’s voice everything is on point.kisses shouldn’t have been the first single it doesn’t represent the quality and greatness of the album.

    It’s okay, nothing mind blowing …. which basically sums up her solo career. I feel like I’m the only person not fawning over “Dirty Laundry” and this is a very forgettable track not to mention she has a boring, bland, predictable ass rapper on it. Anyway, much luck to her. I’d forgotten she was dropping June 18 what with Cole & Kanye in the limelight.

    Sound like Fantasia’s fly like a bird song. Harmony must have produced this record. I love this song kelly!

    if this is called sampling a sample then its a good one. The song is interesting, goofy and easy on ear. With a great video this is going to be a crossover hit . Can’t wait till the album drops. This time the music has content plus listening to wiz khalifa sing at the end cracked me up. Kudos .

    Everything in Destinys Child and her solo love life has polished her to be a great solo act, and she better bring it this era (her lights out tour tells me she is going for more a feeling/emotion than technique and perfection) but I missed that about her in Destinys child…. Kelly prove to us you can do it with costumes, notes, foot work, etc. cause I am going to buy this album.

    It’s the weakest track I’ve heard from the album so far but I love the sample I’m still excited for Talk A Good Game. Think Kelly’s come into her own.
