Behind the Video: Kelly Rowland – ‘Rose Colored Glasses’

Kelly Rowland goes 3-D in the video for “Rose Colored Glasses,” the Dr. Luke-produced single off her third solo album. Directed by Rankin (Kelis’ “Acapella”), the clip shows Kelly dealing with the pain of being in a relationship, set to vivid colors, unique visuals, and stunning shots of the Destiny’s Child alum against a background of flowing streamers.

“This video has been one of the best video experiences I’ve ever had,” she shares. “I’ve shot a lot of videos, but this one is probably the most intriguing because of how it’s shot, the lighting—everything is so detailed.”

“The inspiration behind the song is just my real life,” Kelly says of the Ester Dean-penned track. “It’s just so nice to express that emotion and get it all out there because everyone out there, I’m sure you guys can relate to the pain of feeling like a complete idiot when everybody’s laughing at you when you’re getting played by the person in your life at the time. And you just need to take off your rose colored glasses.”
