Kelly Rowland has never really exhibited the same flair for the ferocious that her former Destiny’s Child star Beyoncé has — until now. Behold, Rowland’s video for “Commander,” featuring David Guetta, taken from her forthcoming, self-titled album.
The last Guetta-Rowland collabo, “When Love Takes Over,” was a dance-floor smash, and the two work more magic on “Commander,” a pulsating club track in which DJs are bodyguards and the beat builds to dizzying heights.
But the video! Rowland goes all fierce latex bodysuit, her hair in a severe ponytail, her chest adorned with sparkly, um, trinkets.
So let’s just state the obvious right here: It’s a familiar look. The club goddess template is a go-to style for Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera these days, and the similarities in Rowland’s latest aren’t hard to spot. S&M fashions were a hallmark of Aguilera’s “Not Myself Tonight” video. And all that militaristic waving of arms choreography? Well, we just saw that earlier this month in Gaga’s “Alejandro.”
