Talk a Good Game - Kelly Rowland
Talk a Good Game

Talk a Good Game is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Kelly Rowland, released on June 18, 2013. The album debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 with first week sales of 68,000 copies and became Rowland’s third top ten album. The album also debuted at number four on the US R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. After wrapping up promo for her third album Here I Am with its final single “Keep It Between Us” on 3rd February, 2012, Rowland released a new single, “Ice” in August, 2012. The song was meant to be the lead single from her fifth album titled Year Of The Woman, which was said to be inspired by 80s and 90s Quiet Storm/R&B artists like Babyface, New Edition and Pebbles. Initial sessions for the album included studio time with T-Minus, The Runners and Sevyn Streeter, Lonny Bereal, Tank, Elijah Blake, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Rodney Jerkins, Jonas Jeberg, Da Internz, Soundz, OAK, and Andrew “POP” Wansel were also recruited, but this material was scrapped upon re-recording of the album. In December, 2012 after meeting producer Mike WiLL Made-It while working on the remix to Future’s “Neva End”, Rowland recorded and released the online promo single, “#1” [which also appeared on Mike WiLL’s mixtape Est. In 1989], followed by lead single “Kisses Down Low” a month later alongside an announcement that she had renamed and recorded the album under the title *Talk A Good Game". The second single “Dirty Laundry” was released in May, 2013 with all three singles appearing on the final tracklist the following month. After releasing the third single “Gone” in August, 2013, Rowland stated that due to the lack of promotion and support from Universal/Republic for the album and singles, that she had decided to leave the label.
