Kelly Rowland’s also a player in June 18’s sales shuffle and, as the days go by, we keep hearing bits and pieces of Talk A Good Game, which now includes “Street Life.” With a lively foundation laid by Pharrell, Kelly keeps filling the rapper-feature-quota by adding Pusha T to the mix of a song criticizing the lure of the clubs and corners but also a dose of honesty (“Everybody around me tryna get to the money…including me!”). Within “Street Life,” there are points where Rowland belts her vocals so convincingly that echoes of Kelis in her prime with Neptunes production start to appear. But as has been the case with everything Talk…, the track’s all Kelly.
Also, Kelly performed on Late Night last night featuring Wiz Khalifa. Catch the performance of “Gone” below.
