Kelly Rowland on Not Recording 'Here I Am' with Beyonce

Kelly Rowland dishes on her new album and why Beyonce isn't on any tracks.
Kelly Rowland’s got nothing but love for her former Destiny’s Child bandmates, but the “Motivation” diva said she deliberately made her new album a solo effort.

“I’ve had the support of Michelle and B for so long,” she told HDNet talk show, “Naughty But Nice with Rob.”  “Yes, my ladies have heard the album. And they love it, they love it and they’re very proud.”

Rowland – who says she calls Beyonce a sister — admits she did consider having Bey on the album, but ultimately wanted to take complete ownership of her project. “I just wanted this to be me on this record,” she said.

“I just wanted a great record full of feel great music that I love that completely reflects me. That’s exactly what I got with ‘Here I am’ and I’m just so proud of this product.”

Plus, she’s doing big things on TV this year, with her own reported sitcom in the works and her role as a judge on the UK’s X-Factor.  Keep it up Ms. Kelly!
