Sweet Tooth: Kelly Rowland Won’t Quit – She’s Back with ‘Commander’

Kelly Rowland just might get her chance in the Sun.  After switching Management last year and enjoying some success overseas, Kelly released a buzz track Smooches (originally meant for Teyana Taylor) that did not really Buzz at all. Luckily she found a sound better suited for her. Commander, written by Rico Love (who also wrote Beyonce’s Sweet Dreams and Usher’s Daddy’s Home) and produced by David Guetta who also dueted wth Kelly on a record last year.

This truly is dance/electro-pop at its finest and it actually really works well for Kelly. I don’t really believe Kelly’s vocals work well for core R&B, she is more suited for less vocally complicated pop songs – in my opinion, of course. Also, Kelly’s music and image is huge is England/Europe while she plays second (or fourth) fiddle to female artists here in North America. So it makes sense for Kelly to appeal to the image and music of the fans who appreciate her (ie. buy her music). I can see this song being a hit for Kelly. Check out some pictures from the set of her video for Commander. The director is Muto and will feature choreography from Aaliyah’s former choreographer Fatima Robinson, which is exciting! What do you guys think of the song?
