Kelly rowland dating the dream
During the hiatus of Destiny's Child, Rowland released her debut solo album Simply Deep in 2002, which contained influences of alternative-R&B and rock music.
It included her joint worldwide number-one single "Dilemma" with rapper Nelly, as well as the singles "Stole", "Can't Nobody" and "Train on a Track".
Next we see a group of young boys on a basketball court, one boy in particular, Greg, who, as Rowland explains, dreamed of becoming a star basketball player.
Then the boys glance over at a group of their classmates, obviously not on good terms, then Greg is shot and dies.
Her discography as a solo artist began in 2000 on the remix of R&B recording artist Avant's single "Separated".
During recording their third album, Survivor (2001), Destiny's Child announced that members of the group would disband for a short period to produce solo albums in the coming years, which they hoped would boost interest to Destiny's Child.
"It tells a story about each of their lives and what they go through and how their lives were taken away from them," Rowland remarked in an interview with CNN's The Music Room, "I loved the song when I heard the lyrics and I hoped it would hopefully touch young people and inspire.
I don't mean to sound preachy 'cos it's still got a great melody and a great musical feel behind it but it was just such a great song [...]." In the clip, Rowland is seen acting as an unseen character singing to the audience while explaining what is going on.
With different types of music for each member to produce, Rowland and her bandmates Beyoncé Knowles and Michelle Williams were not intended to compete on the charts, and thus, Destiny's Child's management strategically planned to stagger every year each member's album.
the unexpected success of Rowland's collaboration with American rapper Nelly on the song "Dilemma" caused the label to advance the release date of her debut solo album, Simply Deep, to late 2002, replacing it with Knowles' solo debut Dangerously in Love (2003).
