Kelly Rowland Cameos In Beyonce-Directed “Party” Video

We were tickled pink to speak to Kelly Rowland on the phone this afternoon to discuss her sophisticated new album Here I Am (#3 on the charts!), and though our full Q&A with Ms. Kelly will come soon enough, we didn’t want to wait to pass on two fun tidbits she mentioned about her Destiny’s Child sister Beyonce’s upcoming “Party” video:

#1. The clip’s director? Beyonce herself. The last time Bey was credited as director was for her “Ego” video (alongside Frank Gatson).

#2. Rowland was spotted on the “Party” set, but she officially confirmed to us that she has a cameo during the trailer park-set fiesta. (That’s about as close to a Destiny’s Child reunion as we’re going to get for now.)

While “Party” (which features Kanye West and Andre 3000) seems intended as a blockbuster video, it’s been reported that the bubbly dance jam “Countdown” will be Bey’s official third single from 4. And Complex reports that Adria Petty (who previously helmed “Sweet Dreams”) will be directing that song’s clip.
