Kelly Rowland - Rose Colored Glasses

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Dr. Luke
Album:
Untitled (TBA)

It’s hard enough to act like an adult when others want what you’ve got, but the true test of maturity often comes when one must cut all ties and walk away from the one thing you desire most. Having suppressed her catty urges against a romantic rival on lead single Grown Woman, Destiny’s Child alum Kelly Rowland spends the follow-up struggling to remove the Rose Colored Glasses of nostalgia and close the door on a relationship that looked perfect from the outside, but, in reality, brought her nothing but trouble and strife. Penned by Drop It Low (Remix) singer Ester Dean and backed by the bittersweet, intricately-layered synth boardwork of Dr. Luke, this cut could hardly be a better showcase for Rowland’s emotional yet pop-appealing vocal stylings. But does RCG have the originality that some in the Booth believed its predecessor lacked? That, of course, is for you to decide. The singer’s third solo album has yet to receive a title or a solid release date from the Universal Motown brass – fans should keep it locked for the latest news and tunes!
