After dancing to the top of the charts with French DJ David Guetta last summer and co-hosting Bravoâ€™s â€œThe Fashion Show,â€ the future looks bright for Kelly Rowland.
The Destinyâ€™s Child alum has been locked up in the studio recording her third solo album. While details remain scarce, one producerâ€™s involvement is a sure bet. Jim Jonsin, the hitmaker behind BeyoncÃ©â€™s â€œSweet Dreams,â€ Pitbullâ€™s â€œHotel Room Service,â€ and Amerieâ€™s â€œSwag Back,â€ has added his magic touch to Ms. Kellyâ€™s project.
â€œIâ€™ve been working on her album with [songwriter] Rico Love,â€ Jonsin tells Rap-Up.com. â€œWeâ€™ve done four songs.â€
Fans of her David Guetta collaboration, â€œWhen Love Takes Over,â€ will be in for a treat. â€œSheâ€™s doing a pop-house and R&B sound, like a mixture,â€ Jonsin reveals. â€œItâ€™s really cool. Some uptempo stuff, some ballads, all around really niceâ€”more like a Donna Summer sound.â€
Although Rowland, who was formerly signed to Columbia Records/Music World Entertainment, hasnâ€™t officially announced a new label deal yet, Jonsin dropped a hint as to where she may end up. â€œI believe sheâ€™s in talks with Universal Motown right now, and a couple others.â€
But not having a label home hasnâ€™t stopped the 28-year-old singer from moving forward. In addition to readying her own album, she has also reunited with Nelly for a sequel to their 2002 smash â€œDilemma.â€
