Riff: Kelly Rowland feat. Lil Wayne – “Ice”

Jan 2, 2013

The mirrors, the mirrors/Up on the ceiling, got things so visual, so visual

from Ice lyrics by Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland has always been on the fringes of superstardom. She has the voice, but it’s just a matter of which angle she want’s to play, the good girl or bad. Here she goes bad, and it’s a bit awkward. The sex kitten act doesn’t work. Her voice and personality are just far too sweet for that.
