Kelly shares the cover of Ebony with fellow R n’ B crooner Trey Songz, and heats things up in a gorgeous pictorial shot by photographer Robert Ector.
Kelly was styled by Latasha Wright (make-up) and Rikya Taylor (hair) and looks all kinds of amazing in each one of her shots.

In her cover story Kelly gave a bit of insight into what fans can expect to hear on her upcoming album.
Kelly on her new musical inspiration: “I stopped by Hitsville U.S.A. [the nickname for Motown’s first headquarters in Detroit], and saw all of this history; it filled my soul up to the point where I wanted to tell my story my way.”
Kelly on Destiny’s Child being called the greatest girl group of alltime. “For people to call us one of the greatest female groups of all time—are you kidding me? Beyoncé and Michelle are two incredible women and deeper than what the public sees. Destiny’s Child, to me, was a sisterhood and a kinship that the three of us shared. You want people to respect that you have your own identity as an artist, but they also remember how they met you.”
