After several delays and music changes, Kelly Rowland’s third solo studio album may finally hit stores this summer. Lead by the 4th release and official first single “Motivation” featuring rapper Lil Wayne, Rowland says the untitled album will boast a plethora of emotions.
“You experience a sensual side of the album, an empowering side of the album, and a painful side of the album,” Rowland tells In The Spotlight. “It’s an emotional rollercoaster. It’s the same things that I feel women go through or that I went through, so I’m really excited for everybody to hear everything. I was inspired by so many different types of music, as well as the producers and writers on the album. When we put our heads together, we were all open to suggestions amongst each other, and that’s what made it so beautiful. We were celebrating music and creativity, and I was celebrating being a woman and feeling that power.”
As far as the fans awaiting Rowland’s new album, the “Commander” singer says they will be in for a good time.
“This album is so much fun when I sit back and listen to it,” states Rowland. “I’m still in the process of sequencing the record, and that’s probably the hardest thing because you want everything to flow so well.”
The album is expected to drop in late August or September of 2011, and as for the much-anticipated title, Rowland says, “I have the title, but I’m not discussing it just yet.”
