NEW YORK, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum superstar KELLY ROWLAND is gearing up to release her fourth full-length solo album, Talk A Good Game [Republic Records], this summer. Already preparing herself for the big Game day, she'll be performing new material live at Elle Magazine's annual prestigious "Women In Music" event on April 10.
The daring diva introduced the world to the album via the sexy smash "Kisses Down Low." Carrying an unshakable chorus, she confidently slides through this seductive, slick & sexy tune. Available on iTunes now, the song is currently climbing up the radio charts at multiple formats. "Kisses Down Low" has already reached Top 15 at Urban Mainstream, and received several early adds at Rhythmic radio before it formally impacted the format this week.
Her formidable sphere of influence is growing online too. The fun and flirty music video for the song has already exceeded over a staggering 6.1 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting since its March debut.
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.
Some may Talk A Good Game, but ROWLAND continues to walk it as well.
