  • Summary: Kelly Rowland continues with her second solo album since Destiny's Child ended.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Rowland - assisted by producers like Scott Storch (Christina Aguilera) and Polow Da Don (Pussycat Dolls) - brings the noise and the funk to her vibrant follow-up. [06 Jul 2007, p.136]
  2. Though still short of career-defining, "Ms. Kelly" finds its author opening up more while welcoming the possibility that destiny may just find another star.
  3. Kelly Rowland failed to step out of Beyoncé's shadow commercially with Ms Kelly, but in artistic terms the album revealed her as a viable solo star.
  4. This time around, both the production and lyrics are stronger.
  5. Rowland's big problem is that she has the lungs but not the voice, at least not if we take that to mean something distinctively her own.
  6. The material tends to be kind of insidious, rather than hitting you immediately or going through one ear and out the other, and it's significantly more R&B-oriented.
