Kelly Rowland Talks About Being Considered the Second Best in Destiny’s Child

In most musical groups, one person is usually considered the star or front person. In The Supremes it was Diana Ross, in Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes it was Teddy Pendergrass and in Run D.M.C. it was Run.

When Destiny’s Child‘s first single “No, No, No,” dropped in 1997, Beyoncé was immediately called the stand out of the group and not just because she sang lead on most songs.

Kelly Rowland brought up the topic on “Red Bull Music Studios Sessions,” which spotlighted the R&B star crafting her new EP “The Kelly Rowland Edition.”

“The elephant in the room for me has always been second best,” she told everyone in the studio. “That’s actually the first time I said it out loud.”

“Hello, I ain’t No. 2,” someone shot back.

The 38-year-old singer also talked about how candid she was in the studio with the songwriters and producers and how it was a good sign.

“I think that what kind of took me back was how comfortable I felt in the room to be so transparent,” Rowland explained.

“The Kelly Rowland Edition” hit digital stores on May 18 and it has three songs, which are titled “Don’t You Worry,” “Diamonds,” as well as “See Me,” and people seem to really like the project.

“Kelly is a extreme talent. She has mastered every genre of music. Her vocals are so diverse. Don’t ever underestimate this woman. The writers and producers knocked it out of the park with this one,” someone wrote on YouTube.” “The biggest complaint I have heard for this project is that it should be longer.”

“This made me sooooo happy to see this EP come together,” another person commented. “Don’t You Worry touched me the most and brought me joy to see everyone jamming to it. I love Kelly Rowland and her music. I cant wait for the album.”

“I just need Kelly to know that she is amazing and I love her 😍💪🏿,” a third person commented. “She is a queen, the queen, my queen! I remember hearing bad habits and getting goosebumps because of her voice.”
