Things on the Kelly Rowland front have been relatively quiet lately. With a recent marriage and a baby on the way, it’s totally understandable. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this new duet featuring the Destiny’s Child member.

I have no idea who Beau Vallis is, but thankful he convinced Rowland to appear on “Love Stand Still.” Apparently, Vallis is a songwriter and producer who’s worked with folks like Ludacris and Lil Wayne.

Penned by Sevyn Streeter and Eric Bellinger, “Love Stand Still” is breezy light love jam. It’s an easy listen but highly doubt it’ll become a smash hit. Stranger things have happened though, so you never know. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

Jennifer Hudson heads back to the 1970s for a disco-inspired new track off her yet-untitled forthcoming album. She enlists R. Kelly to lay down some vocals for “It’s Your World.”

Picking the 47-year-old R&B singer is a risky choice. Just ask Lady Gaga. Controversy seems to surround R. Kelly no matter where he goes. Especially when the lyrics talk about being a ‘servant‘ and a ‘slave.’ With that being said, the beat is infectious. What can I say? I love me some disco.

Hudson also uploaded an album sampler for her third studio album. As mentioned before, it’s untitled and doesn’t even have a release date as of yet. Seems sort of silly. Anyway, I love J-Hud so I’ll go with it. Check out her R. Kelly duet and more below. UPDATE: Hudson just revealed the album will be titled JHUD. #loveit

In conjunction with Capital Records, Katy Perry has launched her very own record label named Metamorphosis Music. The “Birthday” singer announced the news today along with revealing her first signed artist.

Not surprisingly, it’s Los Angeles-based artist Ferras. The singer-songwriter has been the opening act for Perry during her Pristmatic World Tour. A few other notable credits from him include writing a track for Adam Lambert’s debut album, along with briefly having the official exit song for American Idol Season 7 before producers picked a single by Ruben Studdard for the final rounds.

“Ferras is a man with a message, and a unique lyrical way of communicating his perspective on life that makes you feel connected to every note when you listen,” Perry said in a statement adding, “I believe he is going to be an important artist to watch unfold. I am SO ecstatic the world gets to hear his music now both online and on tour with me.”

Perry also serves as executive producer on Ferras’ self-titled EP released today. One of the tracks features a duet with Katy titled “Legends Never Die.” I’m not really feeling it yet, but perhaps it’s a slow burn. Give it a listen below.

“Her instincts are really on point,” Ferras said in a statement. “She is very blunt and doesn’t sugar-coat things, which I appreciate. Also, she gave me the freedom to do what I wanted musically and was a natural partner.”

If a song sounds great no matter what genre, that’s usually a sign how great it’s written. Coming off his well-received performance at the recent CMT Awards, John Legend has released a country studio version of his massive hit, “All Of Me.”

Just like the CMTs, he enlisted Sugarland vocalist Jennifer Nettles to duet with him on the ballad. Whether with a monster dance beat thanks to a killer Tiesto remix, or a twangy folky guitar arrangement, the piano ballad sounds fantastic. Nettles and Legend’s vocals harmonize beautifully over Hunter Hayes guitar strumming. Give it a listen below.

Being such a fan of both Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige, I can’t believe I missed this video which premiered a couple of days ago. If you’re obsessed with “Stay With Me,” this is a must-see.

As part of his promotional tour to pimp out In the Lonely Hour, out on June 17, Smith enlisted Blige for a duet of his hit song “Stay With Me.” With Mary’s powerful pipes, the gospel-tinged ballad is even more soulful. Check out the video below which premiered on Good Morning America on Monday.

“Working with Mary J. Blige is one of the biggest highlights of my career so far. I remember holding her album in my hands in the car when I was a young boy,” Smith shared in a statement. “To meet your idols is a magical thing, but to work with them is truly a dream come true.”

“I’m so honored to have had the chance to work with Sam Smith. Sam’s true soulful voice… is the first of this kind I have heard since Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson and all the great soulful male voices from the ‘80s. I’m completely blown away by his talent, soul and the sincerity.” – Mary J. Blige

Solange Knowles has reteamed with Chromeo for another sexy collabo. Bey’s little sister hooked up with the Canadian duo back in 2010 for the wickedly awesome, “When The Night Falls.” I absolutely love that track which is why it’s still on heavy rotation on my playlist.

Once again, they’ve gone retro for their duet. This time, however, they’ve experimented with more of an 80s sound. The mid-tempo “Lost on the Way Home” is off Chromeo’s new album, White Women, which hits stores next week. It’s one of the many highlights on the duo’s new effort. Give it a listen below.

“After working with Chromeo on ‘When the Night Falls’ from the last album, I was super excited to get back in and work together,” Solange wrote on her website. “They came down to Long Island to this house where I was working on my album late last summer, and they played me a few tracks. When they played the instrumental for ‘Lost on the Way,’ I immediately knew that was the jam.”

What do you get when you put two fabulous drag queens together? Sorry LaToya ;) A deliciously campy club banger of course.

RuPaul just released the deluxe version of her hit LP, Born Naked. The legendary drag queen’s latest studio effort is the most successful of her career. One of the new tracks on the deluxe version is a collaboration with LaToya J.

The two artists serve up major attitude and sass while European dance beats and glitzy synthesizers play in the background. These two make beautifully ferosh music together. Check it out below.

When talk about another Michael Jackson posthumous album featuring previously unreleased material was on its way I was a little trepidatious. However, after hearing the official first single off Xscape I’m excited.

Love Never Felt So Good” debuted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Usher brought his best dance moves to premiere the track. Not exactly quite sure why he was chosen since he’s not even featured on the track. That honor goes to Justin Timberlake. The “Mirrors” singer is the perfect artist to sing alongside MJ on the catchy single. It could easily have fit in both of Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience albums.

Love Never Felt So Good” was written by Jackson with Paul Anka and Kathy Wakefield and originally recorded in 1983. The updated version was produced by John McClain, co-executor of Jackson’s estate. Xscape can be purchased in stores come May 13th. The deluxe edition comes with eight remastered tracks along with their respective original recordings. Give the lead single a listen below.
