Bridget Kelly Performs for Rap-Up Sessions

The Roc was in the building when Bridget Kelly stopped by our Hollywood studio to perform for Rap-Up Sessions. Signed to Roc Nation, the New York songstress has already played arenas across the world on tour with Jay-Z and released her 2011 EP Every Girl featuring the Frank Ocean-penned “Thinking About Forever.”

While overlooking the Sunset Strip, Bridget put her raw talent on display with a three-song acoustic set. Backed by a guitarist, she stripped down her single “Special Delivery” and the Ne-Yo-penned “In the Morning,” for which Meek Mill can be heard on the remix. She also delivered a soulful cover of Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody.”

Bridget is readying her full-length debut for release later this year and has recently opened for Mary J. Blige and Brandy. Watch her stellar set below.

Meek Mill shows a softer side on the remix to Bridget Kelly’s “In the Morning.” The MMG rapper, who is managed by Roc Nation, recalls a wild night of drinking and sex. Despite all the girls clamoring for his affection and texting his phone, he decides that one special lady deserves his heart.

“I know I ain’t never tell you this, but I love the shit out you,” says Meek in a voicemail to his girl. “Call me back, I want to tell you to your face.”

The original version of the Ne-Yo-penned cut appears on Bridget’s 2011 EP Every Girl.
