Kelly Rowland has become what most women become when juggling a career and motherhood…a superwoman.
After taking her acting chops to the next level with her recurring role on the Fox series ‘Empire’ and working on new music plus raising her lil’ one, Titan Jewell, the married songstress is steadily building her already gigantic empire by adding her new docu-series on BET titled “Chasing Destiny,” where she and choreographer great Frank Gaston (Destiny’s Child, Beyonce’) are looking for the next girl group.
Kelly Rowland stopped by Power 105’s The Breakfast Club and spoke with Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee about everything from how the show’s concept came about to Beyonce’ and the anticipation of her album dropping soon.
Here are some highlights from the interview:
ON ‘CHASING DESTINY’: “I didn’t want to do a reality show. I didn’t want to feel like it was a formula type of show. I wanted cameras just to roll because realness of it all is stuff just happens all the time. I don’t think that it’s the type of situation that a talent competition can encompass. I think that everything should happen organically.”
HER REASON FOR CREATING THE SHOW: “Because I felt like there were no girl groups around..there’s Fifth Harmony but when we were coming up we had TLC, EnVogue, Jade, SWV there were so many. It was dope.”
ON DESTINY’S CHILD REUNITING: “We haven’t talked about it. I’ll see Michelle tomorrow or the next day and the last time me and Bey were together was like two weeks ago when I stopped by rehearsals. We talk about everything else. We really, really do. We talk about playdates with the kids and vacations and new opportunities. She’s excited about this group, super excited.”
ON HER OWN ALBUM: “For me, it’s a work in progress. It’s truly a work in progress because for me, it’s been the hardest thing to record an album after this kid.”
ON HER MUSICAL DIRECTION: “I’m happy. Everything is either ratchet or too much substance. I have to find a middle ground. Right now, it’s super hood and another one is like ohm.”
