- Kelly Rowland – Coffee
Kelly Rowland will make a comeback on Friday (17.04.20) with new solo single ‘Coffee’. The Destiny’s Child star unveiled the striking artwork for the new track on social media this week.
And she also announced a new episode of her Instagram Live series, ‘#CoffeeWithKelly: After Dark’. Although Kelly hasn’t released a record in six years, she dropped ‘Kelly’ in 2018, plus ‘Crown’ and festive number ‘Love You More At Christmas Time’ from her movie ‘Merry Liddle Christmas’ – in which she played Jacquie Liddle – last year.
It’s not known whether ‘Coffee’ will feature on her long-awaited fifth album, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Talk a Good Game’, which she’s been working on for a few years now.
Speaking in 2017, the ‘Dilemma’ hitmaker promised it will be worth the wait and said she wants to make a record that will set a “good example” for her five-year-old son Titan – whom she has with husband Tim Weatherspoon.
She said: “All of my fans have been so supportive but now they’re like, ‘We’ve hit a ceiling. I have the guts to really put out the record. I’m unapologetic with this record. It’s everything that I want it to be. It feels like life. It feels like a score. For me it’s been the most bold I’ve ever been. And I want it to be a good example for my son.”
