Here I Am (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Jul 2011
Producing some of her most successful singles yet, Here I Am finds Kelly Rowland settling into styles that work for her, like dance cuts that suit her wispy, malleable voice. More than anything, she's flexing a more brazen sexuality than she's exhibited before on tracks that saunter through the club (or slink through the bedroom). It's a strong eroticism, though, that builds on the diva stance she took up last time around: She may be cooing the most blatant come-on this side of "Love to Love You Baby," but she's doing it while giving instructions for providing her with, um, aural pleasure.
