The sophomore disc from Destiny's Child alum Kelly Rowland features production from Scott Storch, Rockwilder, SoulShock and Karlin, and Billy Mann -- as well as guest appearances from Eve and Snoop Dogg. Ms. Kelly is kicked off by the hip-shaking single "Like This" -- co-written by Sean Garrett ("Ring the Alarm," "Yeah") and produced by Polow Da Don ("London Bridge").

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Kelly Rowland's second solo album was, at one point, due to be released in 2006, titled My Story. Before it was released, Rowland had a change of heart, deciding that the material was too ballad and midtempo-oriented, and she told interviewers that it "would have made people cry." So, she switched it up a little, sought out some different producers, and adjusted the album's makeup. Even without this knowledge, Ms. Kelly sounds like an album where Rowland is mostly sorting through some deeply personal relationship issues with a couple relatively lighthearted songs thrown in for variety. Unless close attention is paid to the drastic and fleeting shifts in subject matter, the conscious decision to release an album not completely sad/bitter/angry
egretful/at peace and autobiographical isn't completely apparent. The lyrics within the most personal songs are direct and specific, going beyond basic breakup material, so those who aren't going through something similar might have some difficulty connecting with them. All-around, the album does provide a stronger set of songs than 2002's Simply Deep. 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, as opposed to Simply Deep's adult alternative rock leanings.

    Wonderful all round

    I bought this cd recently after I saw the video of 'like this' and fell in love with the song. I played it on repeat for days. Last weekend while tidying up, I let the whole cd play and was amazed at what i'd been missing. Now I have the whole cd on repeat. I absolutely love it. It's a very good effort by Kelly.
