Kelly Rowland Professes Love for Cunning Linguists on “Kisses Down Low”
When she’s not busy making baby makin’ music with her old troupe, Kelly Rowland‘s a damn freak on her own time.
She teamed up with Lil Wayne for their steamy collaboration “Motivation” back in 2011, then returned for round two with some more sensual seduction with “Ice” in 2012. (“You’re like ice/I-C-E”–you know, in case you were confused about the spelling.)
Now, Miss Rowland’s back with “Bandz A Make Her Dance” producer Mike WiLL Made It for the latest cut from her upcoming fourth studio album, Year Of The Woman: “Kisses Down Low.” And yes, we’ve got ourselves yet another dark ‘n’ sexy electro-R&B midtempo–and it’s going down (to where life begins.)
“I like my kisses down low/Makes me arch my back,” Rowland declares on the song’s bangin’ chorus, filled out by spacey drum loops and light electronica sparkles. She’d just like to know if you want to learn a different kind of kiss!
Though the spoken word pre-chorus is a bit cringe-inducing (“Boy, you turn me on/Got me feeling hot/Now I’m really gone”–YES OKAY, WE GET IT KELLY), the track serves up the sex appeal well, just like “Motivation” (and to a lesser extent, “Ice”). “Kisses” also contains subtle shades of JoJo‘s slinky “In The Dark,” and some Cassie flavor. Can’t be mad at that.
In recent months, Kelly’s said that her upcoming record is “for the ladies.” Or in this case, her lady bits.
“Nothing can compare to when you kiss me there…”
