*You have to admit, Kelly Rowland is doing her thing.
She’s made life after Destiny’s Child work for her somehow and is currently in beast mode.
“I have something I want [Nas] to be on right now,” she told Radio.com in a recent interview. “I just have to ask him.”
She added that it was Mariah Carey who inspired the idea.
“[I heard] an incredible collaboration [he did] with Joe and Mariah and it felt good.”
The song Rowland referenced, “Thank God I Found You (Make It Last Forever),” is a remix from Mariah’s 1999 album Rainbow, in which she updated Keith Sweat’s “Make It Last Forever” with a rap verse from Nas and vocals from Joe.
“I have a record and I kinda wanna do that, too,” said Rowland. “Taking a page from Mariah’s book, respecting her. I would love to collaborate with Nas and Joe on a song that I have.”
Kelly’s had a long time connection with Nas, she admitted. From the time she heard his debut album, “Illmatic,” she was stuck.
“I remember the first time I picked up Illmatic,” she told Radio.com. “I was blown away by that album…From the first time I picked up Illmatic and I heard [sings the chorus from “The World Is Yours”]…I loved him since then.”
Kelly’s been on a role with rap collaborations. Late last year she worked a few songs with Big Boi, Ludacris and Future.
Go ‘head girl with your bad self.
