“Here I Am” set for international release

Posted by | Latest News | No Comments

“Here I Am” is finally getting an international release date! Kelly’s latest album featuring such hits as “Motivation” and “Commander” is going to hit international shelves around November 25th. The album was previously officially available only for US market and fans from Europe (like myself) had to struggle to get their own copy. So remember to check your local store when you can expect “Here I Am” shipment.

It is rumoured the international album will have a slightly different cover (attached above) however in some countries you may get it also with regular picture.

We don’t know yet how the international version will be different from US edition. In a recent interview with TheGrapeJuice Kelly shared that she’s hoping to add more bonus tracks to the new release.

“I’m actually starting the recording process for the international record – which will be out in November. So yeah, that is true. And I’m going in with different producers too. There will be more bonus tracks on the international record; which is exactly what I wanted, because there’s some songs that didn’t go on to the US version of the album that will go on to the international version. There will, as said, also be newly recorded tracks included too!”

It seems X Factor judge Kelly Rowland is on the mend after an illness forced her to pull out of last weekend’s live shows. Kelly looked a picture of health, wearing an oversized black jumper over a bright yellow top and skinny jeans which she teamed with a patterned headscarf, leopard print boots and hoop earrings.

The former Destiny’s Child star missed last week’s show due to a severe throat infection, which kept her in Los Angeles and left Alexandra Burke to step in to mentor the girls.

A statement from her people said: “Kelly is devastated she won’t be here for this weekend’s show. She is extremely ill with a viral throat infection and her doctors aren’t permitting her to fly.”

Previous X Factor winner Alexandra was left in a difficult position when Misha B and Sophie Habibis were forced to battle it out in the sing-off after receiving the fewest public votes.
