Kelly Rowland Eyes Early 2013 Release for ‘Year of the Woman’

As a former “X Factor” U.K. judge, Kelly Rowland shared her expertise during the live pre-show for the U.S. version of the talent competition. During a sit-down chat with hosts Adrienne Bailon and Jesse Giddings, the “Motivation” singer offered some words of advice to the contestants and provided an update on her upcoming album Year of the Woman, which is currently being mixed.

“I’m very excited about this album, due out the first quarter of next year,” said Kelly.

In addition to the Lil Wayne-assisted single “ICE,” the Destiny’s Child diva’s fourth solo album is expected to feature contributions from Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Rico Love, Kevin Cossom, T-Minus, and Rock City.

“This album is one of my greatest pieces of work and I cannot wait to share it with you guys!” she previously told her fans.
