(MusiqQueen.com/Universal Republic Records) R&B singer Kelly Rowland will release her hotly anticipated fourth full-length solo album, Talk A Good Game [Republic Records], on June 18 in stores and through all digital outlets. The Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum diva is also set to ring in the record’s release with a performance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that same week.
Talk A Good Game is already shaping up to be the pop and R&B event of 2013. In order to prepare audiences for what’s to come on the collection, ROWLAND recently unleashed the seductive and sultry hit “Kisses Down Low.” In less than a month, its video has accumulated an impressive 7.4 million YouTube/VEVO views. The track has also become a mainstay at radio on Urban, Rhythmic, and Mainstream formats, and it’s rising on iTunes.
She also recently performed the single at Elle Magazine’s annual prestigious “Women In Music” event. Bringing the packed room to its feet, “Kisses Down Low” stands proudly alongside her biggest and brightest smashes.
ROWLAND also invited a bevy of heavy hitters to join her on Talk A Good Game. Wiz Khalifa’s breezy flow punctuates “Gone” with smoky elegance, while Pharrell Williams heats up the incendiary “Feet to the Fire.” However, “You Changed” is a veritable pop/R&B event, seeing ROWLAND once again collaborate with her former group members BEYONCE’ and MICHELLE WILLIAMS. In addition, production comes courtesy of, Mike Will, Harmony, The Runners, Pharrell Williams, The-Dream, and more.
Talk a Good Game sees ROWLAND continue her reign of hit making success following her 2011 critically-acclaimed album, Here I Am. That LP debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded the platinum mega hit “Motivation” [featuring Lil Wayne]. To date, the single has accumulated a staggering 57 million YouTube/VEVO views. ROWLAND’s fan base remains one of the most loyal and passionate in R&B. Her Twitter followers exceed 4.4 million, Facebook Likes surpass 2.5 million, and Instagram followers are over 1 million. It’s no surprise given her legendary status.
As a founding member of Destiny’s Child, she has cumulatively sold over 20 million albums worldwide. She has been honored with a total of 5 Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 15 Soul Train Awards, 4 American Music Awards, 2 MTV Video Music Awards, 1 BRIT Award, 1 BET Award, 1 NAACP Image Award, a Star on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame”, and more. However, she’s primed for even bigger things on the horizon.
Be prepared to Talk a Good Game with ROWLAND on June 18.
