“The new music, which encompasses horns, drums, and flutes, was influenced by iconic female singers including Diana Ross. ‘I’ve been inspired by the queens that have gone before us, incredibly strong women who aren’t afraid to take risks and just be innovative,’ said Kelly.”

Kelly also confirmed that she has indeed left her record label, Universal Republic.

“I feel like right now, I just needed something new and I’ve earned the right to make my own choices and make my own decisions,” said Kelly. “I wish them well, they wish me well. No hard feelings, I just needed a fresh, new start.”

Whichever direction Kelly decides to go, you know her fans will follow, and they’re probably eagerly awaiting what her new album will bring to the table.
