First up is my girl, Kelly Rowland. Remember that moment during Beyonce's Super Bowl performance when Kelly shot up from the floor looking like sex in a sleek banged wig?
Well girlfriend really capitalized on that moment this year with a sassy string of singles that lead up to the release of her fourth solo album, "Talk A Good Game"
And Ms. Kelly know her audience, honey.
This record is filled with R&B summer jams and slow baby makers
"Cause if you give me your love
Then I give you mines back
If you get to acting up
I cut you off like that"
there's shots of euro dancey numbers for the gays
and even a Beyonce and Michelle colab for her pop starved fans (who affectionately call themselves "Rowland Stones")
I can say I'm done in a million ways
But let's not beat around the bush
Let's cut to the chase
You changed, I changed but it's too late
"Talk A Good Game" is a nice grab bag of jams slow and fun, and while at 15 tracks it could have benefited from an edit, I appreciate how much effort Rowland put into this album. I'm not sure there's another crossover like 'Motivation' on here, but it will certainly please her fans and to that I say: Keep on Rowland on!
