it's about time she smarten upA source who works very closely with SONY/BMG says that former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland is set to change lanes when it comes to her manager and career. Yeah we’ve heard this before... She was recently spotted meeting with 19 Entertainment’s Simon Fuller, who she is expected to announce as her new manager at the top of 2009.
Simon is the current manager of international acts like The Spice Girls, Annie Lennox, Carrie Underwood and David and Victoria Beckham. And Kelly may not be the superstar that her group member Beyonce is in the United States, but the singer is a mega-star in Europe where she has been playing arena-size venues with the biggest international pop acts.
The album Ms. Kelly was released in the U.S. in 2007 after being pushed back numerous times. After Ms. Kelly came out, the CD sold underwhelming numbers.
In the U.K., the album had an impressive debut and bolted up the charts after the song “E2Work” hit radio. The album was re-released in the Europe and in Japan as, Ms. Kelly Deluxe, and was a chart-topper.
The re-release was only available for digital download in the U.S.
