Kelly Rowland teams with Bacardi Rum for the European campaign, which is celebrating the spirit company’s 150 year anniversary. For her part, Rowland covers the hit song “Summer Dreaming,” which was originally performed by Kate Yania over a decade ago and topped the charts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“The song and its history enthralled me right away,” says Rowland after she first heard the song at a Bacardi anniversary party in January 2012. “My aim was to record a joyful, colorful, sexy song and give it a bit of soul quality. The collaboration with BACARDÃ was so much fun. We had an awesome time recording the song.”
“Summer Dreaming 2012â³ was remixed by Project B and will officially premiere in Berlin, Germany on July 8 with a live performance from Ms. Kelly.
