Kelly Rowland Cherishes Sisterhood With Beyonce And Michelle

Kelly Rowland remembers her start in Destiny’s Child with bandmates Michelle Williams and Beyonce and credits that beginning for her solo success. The eventual trio went on to becoming one of the most highest selling female groups of all time. In a gorgeous Summer 2012 cover shoot for Vegas Magazine, Kelly dishes on her new album and being grateful for Destiny’s Child.

On her new album:

“I am more excited going into it this time than last time [her third solo studio album, Here I Am, came out in 2011], because I have a concept.  I’m making this album for my ladies, oh, yes, and it is strong. All of the producers I’ve been working with get the concept so much that they brought in a little more aggressive—and sometimes masculine—approach, but there is a really incredible top line: I want to tell women how incredible we are, how our intuition is so spot-on. Sometimes we don’t listen to it, but it is the thing that can actually make us happier.”

On starting her career in a group:

“Destiny’s Child was a huge part of my career, and I think it’s only natural for people to refer to Destiny’s Child when referring to any of us.  For people to call us one of the greatest female groups of all time—are you kidding me? Beyoncé and Michelle are two incredible women and deeper than what the public sees. Destiny’s Child, to me, was a sisterhood and a kinship that the three of us shared. You want people to respect that you have your own identity as an artist, but they also remember how they met you.”

Isn’t it beautiful that despite the incessant rumors and breakups through Destiny’s Child, the core three remains. Just last weekend Beyonce thanked Kelly and Michelle for babysitting her daughter Blue Ivy. How sweet..
