This Song is Trash: Kelly Rowland - Work

Now, we have to hand it to the defacto members of Destiny's Child, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Sure, they aren't as talented as Beyonce. Sure, Beyonce might have whipped them into submission during their tenure as a group. But, by god, you can't hold them down from having solo careers. Granted, Beyonce is still the current queen of R&B, and we're still pointing "To the left, to the left," but Kelly and Michelle are not going quietly.

Take, for example, Kelly Rowland's new song. All credit to her, because we don't have a song on the radio, but let's be honest. That song is trash!

The beginning intro and chorus are verging on amelodic, and her thin voice drives our ears to bleed. We'll take our "Independent Women" any day.
