Kelly Rowland recently gave birth to her first child, Titan Jewell, on November 4 — and the new mother hopped straight in the studio to pen a tune dedicated to her son, titled “Mommy’s Little Baby.” Similar to Jay Z’s touching celebration of Blue Ivy Carter that was 2012′s “Glory,” Rowland completely gushes about her son and how she’s waited so long for him to arrive in her world. The result is an affectionate ballad that shows another, more vulnerable side to the singer.
Rowland also shared a cute photo of her son on Instagram, where the song was first previewed. Take a listen below, and view the singer’s Instagram photo while you’re at it. More »
Congratulations are in order for Kelly Rowland, who gave birth to her first child yesterday (November 4)! Her baby boy is named Titan Jewell — how unique! In a statement, Rowland and her husband Tim Witherspoon said this: “We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son. We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!”
The singer teased her pregnancy in June on Instagram, by posting a pair of adult and baby Jordans. Little Titan Jewell is now Blue Ivy Carter‘s younger cousin, so just imagine the awesome playdates Rowland and Beyonce will organize! More »
Kelly Rowland shows off her beautiful baby bump by posing nude for Elle magazine. The 33-year-old looks absolutely gorgeous in the tasteful shoot, rocking a bunch of snug-fitting dresses before ditching them altogether for one radiant snap. The Destiny’s Child diva follows in the footsteps of fellow pregnant diva Christina Aguilera, who recently stripped off for V magazine.
The mom-to-be opened up about juggling a career with motherhood, saying she draws inspiration from other superstars: “I watch Diana Ross and Donna Summer and all these women — they’ve managed to do it all. I think ‘What makes me different? I can definitely do it.’ And this is something I’ve wanted.” As for music? Well, Kelly is already working on that. “I go in the studio next week!” she reveals.

name might not immediately ring a bell, but his presence has been felt on tons of your favorite artists’ tracks. In addition to singing/songwriting, Vallis is a producer and an engineer, having worked with the likes of Lil Wayne
, Young Jeezy
and many others. He links up with none other than Kelly Rowland
for his new cut “Love Stand Still.”
The track — penned by Sevyn Streeter and Eric Bellinger — is a breezy love song about enjoying the moment, where Beau and Kelly’s vocals blend perfectly with the romantically spacey beat of production team Da Internz. There’s a lot of talent on this one track, where the vocalists are as strong as the songwriters. Talk about a winning combo! It’s about time Beau Vallis stepped from behind the boards and got on stage. Let’s hope he stays there.

‘ heavenly “Say Yes”
video premiered today (June 18) and evoked serious nostalgia by reuniting the children of destiny. It was heart-warming to see the gospel diva finally have her moment — singing and dancing her heart out as best friends/sisters Beyonce
and Kelly Rowland
helped her out by each taking a verse.
There’s so much going on in this visual extravaganza — I could dedicate a whole post to Queen Bey’s dazzling braids — that it demands something of a play-by-play for overwhelmed Destiny’s Child addicts and curious pop fans who caught the holy spirit after being exposed to Michelle’s uplifting gospel banger. See the video’s 8 best/totally accurate moments after the jump. More »
holds a Destiny’s Child
reunion in her uplifting and oddly nostalgic “Say Yes”
video. Produced by Harmony Samuels
, the catchiest gospel song in recent memory/ever deserves a joyous visual and the holy twerker
certainly delivers with a cute street party-themed opus. Who says you can’t worship and get down at the same time?
The video begins with the choir-fixing diva looking fierce and fabulous on the streets of New Jersey. Soon, she’s having a religious experience in a beautiful white dress with two of her best friends. Beyonce‘s outfit has to be seen to be believed and Kelly Rowland, well, she looks as gorgeous as ever. That’s when the party kicks off and our favorite girls reunite for some impromptu dance moves. If you love Destiny’s Child (and good music in general) this is unmissable. Watch up top. More »
is all about having her fun right now.
As part of Pepsi’s innovative Beats Of The Beautiful Game audio-visual project — a collaboration between superstar artists, producers and directors that ties together the worlds of sports, art and music — the Child of Destiny has returned to us in 2014 with “The Game,” an empowering anthem perfectly suited for preparing to head onto the field. (The Spike Lee-directed, soccer-infused video for the song just premiered today.)
And that’s not all: Between slowly but surely recording her fifth studio album, teaming up with her Destiny’s Child soulmates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams for Michelle’s inspirational holy banger “Say Yes,” as well dropping a possibly-maybe clue about being pregnant on Instagram a mere ten minutes after speaking with us (!?!), it’s safe to say that things are certainly looking up for “Kisses Down Low” diva.

just dropped a bombshell on Instagram. The Destiny’s Child
diva posted a picture of baby sneakers next to a pair of basketball shoes with the comment: “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.” That was interpreted by the ever-knowing internet as confirmation of her rumored pregnancy and fans immediately flooded her feed with well wishes.
While we wait for an official announcement from Kelly, check out the trailer of her Spike Lee-directed visual for “The Game”. It finds a child kicking a soccer ball through the picturesque streets of Brazil with a bunch of friends. The video is pretty much perfect for a World Cup anthem and should strike a chord with fans of the beautiful game. Watch after the jump. More »
, Kelly Rowland
and Michelle Williams
, together known as Destiny’s Child
, have regrouped for the first time since their powerhouse performance at the Super Bowl
on the set of the video for Michelle’s urban gospel banger, “Say Yes.”
Although the video shoot was supposed to be a surprise — one might even say it was Unexpected — fans and paparazzi alike were quick to track down the trio during the shoot last month. After all, when you’ve got the ladies of DC3 all together in one room, it’s all but impossible not to get the entire world shaking and crying.
“We heard all this commotion going on while we were filming. We filmed at somebody’s house and they probably got excited and called their cousins and friends and, next thing you know, the whole town was on one street,” Michelle revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.
Check out the first professional still from the video shoot above. More »
