Biography

Biography by MacKenzie Wilson
Kelly Rowland rose to fame with the success of Destiny's Child during the late '90s. During that time, Destiny's Child catapulted into the new millennium as one of the best-selling female musical groups in history. Rowland, who was barely in her twenties, had been imagining such stardom for a long time. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Rowland began ... Read more in Amazon's Kelly Rowland Store

Product Description

Product Description

KELLY ROWLAND Simply Deep (2003 14-track CD album including the singles Stole Dilemma [with Nelly] and the 2 Bonus Recordings Make U Wanna Stay [with Joe] and No Coincidence picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

It's hard to say what adds more ballast to singer Kelly Rowland's solo debut, Simply Deep--her chart-topping past with Destiny's Child or her insanely sexy duet (and accompanying video) with hip-hop star Nelly on the song "Dilemma". For certain, Rowland will take her place alongside fellow Destiny's Child member Beyonce Knowles as a hip, self-assured R&B force with a terrifically elastic voice, if not groundbreaking material.

A slick, mostly upbeat clutch of smoochy urban ballads and he-done-me-wrong laments, Simply Deep sounds expensive and Cristal-soaked, which was doubtless the goal. And there are notable exceptions--"Love/Hate" is a electronically juiced rump-shaker while the poignant album opener, "Stole", stands as a beacon to the underdog, delivered in a voice as striking as the face it belongs to, which is saying something. --Kim Hughes

Her debut solo album shows us the real Kelly after her being some what shadowed in Destiny's Child. Her vocals are smooth yet strong and powerful with a good range. The album features Dilemna which was her first single since Destiny's Child featurring Nelly. This was a mainstream rap/pop tune but the rest of the album tracks don't tend to be like that. They are more soulful and there tends to be more ballads than pop songs or more edgy different sounds.
Her first solo single is Stole. This a meaningful and soulful ballad telling a story of young people's lives being stolen in different ways. Kelly's vocals are strong and moving and this was a perfect debut track.
Can't Nobody is the next track to be released. It is very edgy and I really love it. It has a very strong bass line and is a fun livley song and I thought quite different.
I also really liked Simply Deep which was a beautiful song written by Beyonce's younger sister Solange who also sings with Kelly on this track.
Haven't Told You is another personal favourite. Kelly's vocals are smooth and like silk on this ballad like track, with not a very strong bass line but more acoustic guitars etc
I have to say I didn't really like the tracks Obsession or Love/Hate . Obsession was very 'fake' sounding as synthesisers played a big part in the dischordant melody. The same goes to say for Love/Hate which sounds rather digital and something that Brandy would have.
Overall I am really pleased with this album and think it is a r'n'b classic. You should all buy it as Kelly is going to be huge with these unique and beautiful songs on which her vocal talent shines

I prefer Kelly to her somewhat rival Beyonce. Her music just sounds better, and I feel she doesn't get enough singing time in Destiny's Child. Yes she will have more hits with DC but as Beyonce has more or less taken over DC, Kelly and Michelle have more or less been pushed aside. In this album we get to see what Kelly is really like, and I think she is possibly one of the best R&B singers around... songs like Stole and Haven't I Told You are the real highlights of the album, but most of the songs are pretty good. You will not be disapointed you bought this album.

It was exciting times for the music industry when the three members of R&B Super-Group 'Destinys Child' announced they would all be creating solo albums for themselves. Michelle Williams released a gospel offering in early 2002 to both critical and public acclaim, putting the pressure on Kelly and Beyonce to deliver something very special indeed. After collaborating with rapper Nelly on the smash hit of 2001 - 'Dilemma', Rowland was in a great position and she clearly hasnt let the opputurnity slip. Track one on the album, and her debut solo single, 'Stole' sets the standard for this wonderful album. A beautiful and meaningful R&B song with a rock edge to it. Perfection.
The second single to be lifted from this release was the wonderful, and my personal favourite, 'Cant Nobody'. This R&B Funk at its finest! The track is everything an R&B Funk track wants to be but yet what so few actually are. By this point band-mate Beyonce would have been quivering in her boots! Kelly is most certainly here to stay. And so we move on to the third and possibly final release from the album, 'Train on a Track'. Though not as commercial as the first two singles, this is a very nice little number thats been put together very well and is perfect for Ms. Rowland's smooth and sexy vocals. But this is not an album with four hits 11 fillers, oh no, this is ALL KILLER! The album is a joy to listen to from start to finish, with the insanely delicious 'Havent Told You', a sleek R&B ballad, the brilliant 'Love/Hate' thats as sharp as a knife edge and the Hip-Hop fueled collaboration with Joe Budden 'Make U Wanna Stay'. These are just a few highlights. The truth is every single track on this album brings something new and undeniably classy to the table.
There is no doubt at all that this is THE R&B release of 2002.

It's been nearly 3 years since this album reached #1 in the UK and it still sounds as fresh as the day it was released. A truely fantastic album packed full of excellent, high standard tracks. There is not one dull track on the album.
I cannot wait for the new album and I just hope that she can follow it up in style!
My personal favourites:
Stole
Love/Hate
Past 12
Can't Nobody
Train On A Track

I have to say, as a singer when I first heard Kelly sing on Destiny's Child's "With Me" and "Get On The Bus" it was very clear that she had a stronger voice with more power and a natural echo that wasn't found in Beyonce's soft, melodic tone. Here, Kelly demonstrates her true talents. The song choices are excellent for her voice and show she has the range, power, tonality and harmonic capabilities to sound very mature and skilled. Granted, there could be a few more uptempo tracks on the album but in each song her message is so clear and excellently delivered you automatically see a mature artist and not one having to try too hard to convince people of her talent.

Of the songs, except the single releases, the tracks Simply Deep, Heaven, Obsession and Haven't Told You are my favourites. They are brilliantly crafted. Her harmonies are so beautiful and really teach a singer HOW to sing and not just perform a lead role. Her "Back up" role in DC has made her a great all rounder able to detect subtleties that are otherwise missed by singers. Beyond Imagination is a stunning track that shows her at the album's vocal best and has a very deep reservoir of emotion in it's words.

This album deserves a lot of attention as it's one of the best album's I've ever heard. I don't think many artists could release a debut this good. I hope Kelly returns to doing more good, honest music that appeals to the heart and soul not just popular, hyped-up, forgettable stuff that no one remembers in a year to come. Well done Kelly. :0)
