This is a Kelly Rowland appreciation post. We repeat: This is a Kelly Rowland appreciation post. Better yet, nah. we’ll just save it for the day she releases a new studio album. Y’all are not ready. For now, let’s rejoice in the fact that Ms. Kelly dropped a new EP, titled K, to hold fans over.
Weeks after birthing her second son, Noah and days after celebrating her 40th birthday, Ms. Kelly is back with a short and sweet, 6-track project under her independent label KTR Records and new management family, Roc Nation. A mixture of new and previously released tunes, the extended play opens with “Flowers” produced by NEZ, before going into Afrobeats-infused songs like “Black Magic” and “Hitman,” produced by Sak Pase and Oak, respectively.
“There’s definitely a piece of my marriage on there [the K EP]. I mean just relationships, period,” explained Kelly in an interview with AP. “I just feel like when it comes to love and when it comes to telling stories, I had to put a little bit, well all of it on the record. ‘Cause if you don’t…it wouldn’t have been me.”
To add to the musical moment, Rowland released a new music video for the opening track. Surrounded by a group of seven expressive dancers, a very pregnant Kelly stuns in all her effortless beauty as she dons vibrant dresses accenting her baby bump. Directed by Lloyd Pursall, the “Flowers” music video reminds us just how flawless Ms. Kelly is. Simply stunning.
Watch the music video down below as well as the visual for the second track on the EP, “Black Magic,” starring a very happy Kelly and her two sons. We love to see it!
