Kelly Rowland Pushed Back Universal/Motown Debut


Kelly Rowland has pushed back the release of her forthcoming self-titled album. The former Destiny's Child star had originally announced that the album would hit stores on September 21, but has decided to hold off until later this year.

"I'm just making sure everything is going to be absolutely perfect . . . I'm still recording," she said in a recent radio interview.

The album will include Rowland's latest single, "Commander," which hit radio on May 17. The track peaked in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and also broke the top 10 on five international song charts.

Rowland also made recent headlines for her supposedly tenuous relationship with former group mate Beyoncé Knowles. Rumors swirled that Beyoncé released her "Why Don't You Love Me" video intentionally to compete with Rowland's "Commander" video.

According to Rowland, however, the rumors were nothing more than media hype.

"We all came out at the same time and it really doesn't matter . . . I think there's room for everybody . . . There's B, there's Ciara putting something out and [Lady] GaGa putting something out, but, because we started out together, people are going to say things like that. But I really don't care, I love her 'til our dying days and that's all that counts," Rowland told Dutch television network TMF.
