NEW YORK (AP) – When good things come threesome, Kelly Rowland basks in her current moment of bliss.
Less than a month ago, the Grammy winner gave birth to her second child, Noah. she celebrated her 40th birthday last week; and on Friday she releases a new EP called “K.” fall.
“A few months ago I said I was going to have two births: the birth of the baby and the birth of an album,” Rowland said after warning that her 6-year-old son Titan or her newborn’s screams could interrupt that Interview. “Some songs I’ve had for years, some of the songs I’ve had for maybe a year or a few months, but it all fits together so well.”
The result of their musical love work is a six-track project that is heavily influenced by Afrobeat rhythms. How was the admission with a growing womb?
“(I was) out of breath!” Rowland laughed.
In “K” there is the dancing dance track “Crazy” as well as the sultry “Hitman”, a song that should be a staple for the kind of sweaty basement parties the pandemic can’t allow.
On the island taste of “Better”, Rowland sings emotionally: “You love me better / Because I’m not going nowhere.”
“I’m definitely telling you about myself and Tim’s business,” she said with a laugh, adding that she fell more in love with husband Tim Weatherspoon during the forced proximity of the pandemic. “When I hear a song, I don’t hear it for ‘Will this be a hit? ‘I hear it the way I feel about it … and with the records everyone will hear on the (EP) there is a connection to everyone. “
