Single Cover Diva-Off: Kelly Rowland Vs. Rihanna Vs. M.I.A.

May 6th, 2010 // 24 Comments

Kelly Rowland, whose upcoming solo album is due out September 14, might think she’s in charge, but her “Commander” single cover wasn’t the only artwork to arrive on the scene in recent days. Both M.I.A. and Rihanna unveiled their own single sleeves, for “XXXO” and “Te Amo,” respectively. What we want to know is this: which of these divas has the hottest artwork. Have a peek at all three below and let us know.

3. M.I.A., “XXXO”

So which of these ladies do you think comes off as the baddest babe with their new single sleeve? Is it Kelly with her collection of buttons affixed to her hat? Or maybe Rihanna’s creepy image of her among displaced body parts is winning you over. Then of course there’s M.I.A.’s gold brick motif.

Let us know which diva did it best below!

    Dave, you idiot. People don’t weave their heads full of “nappy hair,” as you ignorantly call it. Are you really that scared of some curls?

  22. thumper

    love kelly but i think rihanna takes it here – wtf is that MIA bullshit? goes hand in hand with the self indulgent born free video

  23. FACE

    The cover’s a 70′s throwback look and I can’t wait for Queen of The Night, I wish the release was sooner. Ever since Destiny’s Child self titled debut I’ve been a fan of Kelly. She has it & hasn’t known but better late than never, she’s an effortless performer
