The Grammy winning R&B/pop superstar Kelly Rowland is back with her new studio album, Ms. Kelly: Diva Deluxe, a groundbreaking digital-only collection of new songs and scorching remixes available exclusively through all major online digital music providers on Tuesday, March 25.
Ms. Kelly: Diva Deluxe premieres five new Kelly Rowland tracks as well as remixes of Kelly’s co-compositions “Come Back” (Karmatronics Remix) and “Like This” featuring Eve, a Redline Remix of Kelly’s international smash and #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play recording.
“The tracks on Diva Deluxe are too hot to hold onto,” said Kelly Rowland, “so I decided to release them digitally so my fans could get into them as soon as possible. I hope everyone enjoys the new songs as much as I did recording them.”
Kelly Rowland is currently enjoying the mounting international success of her latest single, “Work,” which is the #9 Top Digital Single across Europe and is charting in the UK (#8, #1 TV Airplay), Ireland (#12), France (#11), Germany (#1 Club Record), Switzerland, Sweden (#3 Video Chart), Denmark (Top 20 Dance) and Australia (#2 Most Added at radio). “Work” will be released as an extended play of dance mixes to US digital music providers on February 26 with an extended play of dance mixes of Kelly’s new single, “Daylight,” going to US digital music providers on March 4.
Ms. Kelly: Diva Deluxe is Kelly’s first new collection of songs since June 2007 when Ms. Kelly, her second solo album, entered the Billboard Top 200 at #6, giving Kelly her first Top 10 album as a solo artist, while debuting on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart at #2.
Ms. Kelly was the long-awaited successor to Rowland’s best-selling 2002 gold-certified solo debut album, Simply Deep, which has sold more than two million copies worldwide. Peaking at #1 in the UK, #3 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Album chart, and #12 on the Billboard Top 200, Simply Deep included the smash hit, “Dilemma,” Kelly’s duet with the rapper Nelly, which earned the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2003 and spent 10 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100.
One of the vocal superstars, and founding member, of Destiny’s Child, the top-selling female group of all time, Kelly Rowland proved a major contributing force as the trio racked up sales of more than 60 million records worldwide while earning two Grammy Awards in the Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals category (2000: “Say My Name”; 2001: “Survivor”).
Kelly’s natural charm and charisma have opened up the doors to roles in movies and on television. Her big screen acting credits include starring roles in the 2003 horror blockbuster, “Freddy vs. Jason,” and 2004’s comedy-romance, “The Seat Filler,” executive produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Among her television appearances, she has appeared as “Carly” in three episodes of “The Hughleys” and as “Martha Reeves” (of Martha & the Vandellas) on “American Dreams.” She has performed on “Saturday Night Live” and as a guest host on “The View.”
Kelly Rowland has appeared as celebrity spokesperson for the “Dark & Lovely” hair product line from Soft Sheen-Carson (consumer products division of L’Oreal USA, Inc.).
