It’s official, Kelly Rowland will release her new album this June, and she has finally set the release date.
‘Talk A Good Game‘ will arrive on June 18, it was announced by Republic Records. The Grammy-winning singer, who just made PEOPLE’s ‘Most Beautiful’ list, will celebrate the release with a performance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that same week.
The follow-up to 2011’s Here I Am includes some big name guests. Kelly has collaborated with Wiz Khalifa (“Gone”), Pharrell (“Feet to the Fire”), The-Dream (“Dirty Laundry”), Harmony Samuels, The Runners, and Mike WiLL Made It, who produced the lead single “Kisses Down Low.” However, the most anticipated track is her new record with her Destiny’s Child groupmates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams, on the soulful “You Changed.”
The music was inspired by classic R&B including New Edition, Pebbles, and Babyface. “[It] feels like everything I wanted to make as far as music and R&B,” Rowland told Billboard. “I wanted to make sure my roots were really pronounced on this album.”
She will launch a co-headlining tour with The-Dream this summer in support of the album. Dates have yet to be announced.
