You’ll definitely be saying Kelly Rowland’s name after you hear her new song: It’s “Kelly,” her first solo material in five years.
Rowland’s proven her range over the course of her time in Destiny’s Child and her four solo albums, the last of which was 2013’s Talk a Good Game. But this new track shows she’s still got surprises up her sleeve—and that she’s feeling herself in a big way.
Over icy synths and drum machine snaps, Rowland raps more than she sings, letting off smug bars about the numerous ways she’s not to be fucked with. “Kelly got bands, Kelly got a check,” the chorus goes. “Kelly got deals, Kelly got class, Kelly got ass.” She’s a woman who’s truly got it all, and isn’t afraid to let you know that.
Fingers crossed this badass single means an album’s on the way. Stream “Kelly” below:
