Kelly Rowland teams with Pusha T on her new track, “Street Life.”
When we said that Kelly Rowland was having a MO-MENT, we honestly and truly meant it. Her Talk A Good Game disc drops on June 18, but we’ve already gotten a MASSIVE sampling of her forthcoming album. We’ve heard the vulnerable “Dirty Laundry,” the incredibly sexy “Kisses Down Low,” the bold R&B jam “You’ve Changed” featuring her Destiny’s Child sisters — Beyoncé and Michelle Williams — and “Gone,” her “step the eff off” anthem featuring Wiz Khalifa. Now, in the latest taste of what’s to come, Kel has called in an assist from Pusha T on “Street Life.” Seriously, can you just IMAGINE HOW MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE attend Kel’s birthday party every year? Like, not even a little normal.
Listen to Kelly Rowland’s “Street Life” featuring Pusha T after the jump.
Set to a lively track full of hand drums and horn stabs, Kelly cops a no-BS attitude on “Street Life,” chanting verses about making that dough, but not forgetting where you came from. “Coming from the street life we know it’s letting go/ We like to go to school for education/ But the street life we know don’t write no notes/ It’s like parole with the time we’re facing,” Kelly sings.
Pusha is up next, and in what is perhaps the sneakiest #HumbleBrag of all time, he spits: “So don’t judge me by my jewelry please your honor.” YEAH, we probably won’t have time to judge you because we’d be way too busy trying to regain our sight after being blinded by your bling!
Later, Kel explains: “Tryina get where the breeze is nice/ So I can breathe.” Yeah, girl, we hear that! How about when you find out where the breeze is nice, you let us know and we’ll meet you there? And also, we’ll bring snacks! All organic.
