Go Kelly go! Five years since her last album, Kelly Rowland returned with new music on Thanksgiving night.
On the confident and boastful anthem “Kelly,” the R&B songstress has a new attitude and is not afraid to flex about her whips, drip, stash, and big house on the hill. “You know bosses move in silence / And I ride it like it’s stolen / ‘Cause my name is Kelly Rowland,” she sings.
She also claps back at her haters. “Kelly ain’t got no chill / Kelly don’t really give a fuck how you feel,” sings Kelly, who previously teased the track on Instagram. “Kelly got a foot on your throat, ni**a.”
Rowland is now working on her first album since 2013’s Talk a Good Game, which was inspired by motherhood. “I’m in this really glorious time in life where I feel like I’m receiving a lot of information and I feel like I have to give that back out, too,” she told Beats 1 last year. “My theme is the extraordinary simple life of me. It doesn’t take a lot for me to be a happy girl. I like simple things. I like extraordinary things too, so I had to put that in there. It’s just a really colorful and beautiful record so far. I’m very excited.”
