Let Girls Learn is an initiative from Michelle Obama to give access to education to 62 million girls around the world who don’t have any. FLOTUS presented the song at the opening keynote address at SXSW Music in Austin earlier today.

This is For My Girls” was penned by Oscar-nominated songwriter Diane Warren and produced by AOL Makers. An all-star team was recruited for the empowering track. Zendaya, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michele, Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monae, Jadagrace, Chloe & Halle and Missy Elliott joined forces for the movement.

Give it a listen below. It has an early 2000s R&B vibe. Think Amerie meets vintage Destiny’s Child.

With exception to a couple of guest appearances, including a surprising one with Jacob Whitesides on “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” things on the Kelly Rowland front have been relatively quiet. After taking a couple of years off to get married and give birth to her boy Titan, the 34-year-old singer is staging a comeback.

On the heels of her recurring gig on Empire, Kelly debuts a brand new track on Soundcloud. “Dumb” is anything but what the title suggests. It’s a slick new offering with a bangin’ West coast beat that’s Rowland’s most club-ready single in years.

Though no featured artist is mentioned, there’s a rap interlude included. It could very well be Kelly herself dropping some rhymes, but it doesn’t sound like her. Who knows, she might’ve picked up some rapping skills during her hiatus.

Hopefully, this is a sign that a fifth studio album is on the horizon. Give “Dumb” a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Who the hell is Jacob Whitesides? And more importantly, how did he snag a duet with Kelly Rowland? Someone’s got connections.

Even more random is the fact the Destiny’s Child singer is practically double his age. Who knew Kelly was such a cougar… at least vocally 😉 Girl sings about making love underwater with the twink. You go Kelly!!!

I Know What You Did Last Summer” is reportedly the lead cut off the 18-year-old’s forthcoming debut album. The mid-tempo ballad features a nice melodic beat but their pairing feels a bit awkward. Their voices complement each other fine but there’s just something a bit off. With that being said, I adore Kelly, so I’ll buy anything she’s selling. Give the track a listen below.

Did Kelly Rowland Just Tease New Music?

In: Donovan, Music

Beyonce is great and all, but Kelly Rowland has and will always be my favorite member of Destiny’s Child. Naturally, I’m eagerly awaiting for the 34-year-old diva to drop new music. It appears the “Motivation” singer is prepping a comeback after taking a break to become a mother.

While vacationing in the Middle East, Rowland shared a clip of her enjoying the sunshine. Playing in the background appears to be a snippet of new music. Fingers crossed her fifth studio album is just on the horizon. Check out the teaser below.

Kelly Rowland is just the latest marquee name to join the cast. Find out what role she’s playing below.

Michelle Williams scored her first gospel chart-topper with “Say Yes.” No doubt in part thanks to special appearances by Kelly Rowland and Beyonce. While all three joined forces to film the accompanying music video, they’ve never performed the uplifting track live. That is until now.

The trio reunited onstage at Saturday’s Stellar Gospel Music Awards held in Las Vegas. Who else finds it ironic the awards were held in Sin City? The reunion marks the first time all three ladies hit the stage together since Beyonce’s epic Super Bowl half-time show back in 2013.

Gospel isn’t a genre I typically listen to but I’ve liked the track since first hearing it. The awards show doesn’t air until April 5 on TV One, but you can get a sneak peek below thanks to some fan-captured footage.

Beyonce’s Grown Woman Video Surfaces

In: Donovan, Music

Grown Woman” first surfaced in Beyonce’s Pepsi commercial back in April. Eight months later, a snippet for the amazing cut has finally surfaced. Whether the footage was part of a scrapped music video or simply unused background visuals meant for her Mrs. Carter World Tour, only B actually knows. The uptempo gem definitely deserved better than the treatment it received.

I probably shouldn’t hold my breath for an official release of the single. During her recent gig in my hood, Bey never performed “Grown Woman” nor “Standing In The Sun.” #hugeletdown. Oh well, at least there’s this.

On a side note, Beyonce should really consider ditching her blond tresses for awhile. She looks stunning in dark straight hair. Check out the clip below which features cameos from Mama Knowles and Kelly Rowland. Poor Michelle Williams. Not invited to the party once again.

R. Kelly Streams His Black Panties

In: Donovan, Music

Thanks to his wicked Lady Gaga collaboration, “Do What U Want,” R. Kelly is back on the charts again. Hoping to further solidify his comeback, the 46-year-old singer is releasing his 12th studio album. His first with RCA Records. Word on the street says it’s vintage R. Kelly at his best. I have to agree. His duet with Kelly Rowland is giving me R&B life.

“Black Panties is going to be something like the 12 Play. If anybody out there knows about 12 Play then you know about Black Panties because basically it’s 12 Play upgraded, like an Apple phone that’s got new apps on it.” – R. Kelly

Controversy has surrounded the singer like a guardian angel throughout his career. He’s already received criticism for his album’s artwork featuring a woman as a human cello. Some say it’s misogynistic? Would you expect anything less from the man who once sang about being reminded of his woman by waxing and riding his jeep. His latest effort includes a track titled “Marry The Pussy.” Oh, R. Kelly, never change. Check out his new album, Black Panties, below.
