Kelly has been on heavy promotion this weekend at the Essence Music Festival. She did a little recruiting for her upcoming BET show, Chasing Destiny, alongside friends Trey Songz and Frank Gatson.

It was also reported that Kelly will be returning to FOX’s Empire. Returning? you ask… well if you recall, Kelly’s vocals were used on season 1, when her song, “I’m Dat Chick” from her album, “Here I Am“, was played in an episode. Well this go round, Kelly is reportedly going to appear in person!

Kelly Rowland will appear on the hit FOX show this fall, a source told E! News exclusively on Saturday, the Fourth of July, at the 2015 Essence Festival in New Orleans. The 34-year-old R&B singer will play Lucious Lyon’s mother in a flashback. SOURCE

Shortly after, she was spotted hanging out with the writers of Empire. Hmm…working on that script Kelly?

And then there is the Independence Day party, 17 Wards Weekend Wine & Grind! Kelly was spotted at a party, where Solange Knowles was the DJ. She was spotted next to musicians Missy Elliott, Tweet, and Beyonce. Check out photos from Kelly’s weekend in our gallery.

When She Commands, You Dance

Ensconced at her reserve table with Universal execs, Kelly Rowland literally shimmered in a light-reflecting Rubin Singer dress at Pat Field’s disco party at 230 Fifth.

picture of a pumpkinSome dance-club inclined friends of ours really like your new single, “Commander”, we told the singer by way of an icebreaker.

She lit up. “It’s such a summer jam,” she said of the upbeat pop dance number. The song, released last week, is produced by David Guetta, who split a Grammy with “Rowland for “When Love Takes Over.” “Commander” is written by Rico Love.

“I go to bat for my records,” Rowland said. “I know in my gut that it feels good. Nobody could take my thoughts away from that. I don’t need anyone else to tell me it’s good.”

The video for the song, directed by Japanese director Masashi Muto, is currently in post-production. The video will be futuristic, Rowland said. “I didn’t want it to be too military because that’s so predictable.”

She thinks the song could be a contender for Summer Jam of 2010. “The song keeps you moving, she said excitedly. “When I command you to dance,” she pointed fiercely, “I want you moving, you know? It felt good to have a song that I could express that in.” Source
