It's official! Kelly Rowland's fourth solo studio album, Talk A Good Game, is now in stores. Led by the singles "Kisses Down Low" and "Dirty Laundry," the project taps into the Golden Era of R&B (90s) for inspiration, and with Kelly's love for the genre, we think you may share her excitement. "The creative process of Talk A Good Game started with a board and on my board I had pictures, I had different things that I wanted to talk about…It was five different titles in between…but the album just really came together itself…It was through conversation, through great fun in the studio…that's how everything sparked," Rowland told Singersroom.

Veteran songstress Maysa drops her tenth studio album, Blue Velvet Soul, via Shanachie Entertainment. The set is led by the sultry and sexy ballad “When You Touch Me,” an ode to succumbing to the irresistible charm of a lover. "All of my music has some kind of connection to my life period, so the main one that I wrote, specifically for myself on this album without any regard to marketing or how it was gonna affect the record was "Inside my Dreams." That’s a song I wrote for myself because it’s about me wanting to meditate, living my life, and be happy. A life where I creatively visualize what I want and it comes to me. I know that’s a reality in life and you can do that through meditation and staying positive and focusing on what you do want in life," Maysa told Singersroom

Sheléa – Love Fell On Me | (Purchase)
New comer Sheléa (shuh-LAY-uh) releases her debut album, Love Fell On Me, via Breath of Life Records/CEN/RED Distribution, a division of Sony Music. The set is led by the soulful first single, "Love The Way You Love Me," which premiered on Singersroom back in February. Sheléa captures the "true essence of romance" on Love Fell On Me. "Each song is a story that weaves into the next, creating this beautiful journey that reminds you how it feels to be in love or to have lost it," she stated.
