Kelly Rowland Promotes World Cup with New Song, “The Game”


Universal MotownKelly Rowland debuted a short film directed by Spike Lee for her new song “The Game” Thursday on her Facebook and Twitter accounts. The film follows a young soccer player in Brasil named Pixote.

Kelly told Us Weekly, “I’m very excited. I think the whole project is a really, really cool idea in marrying music and visual and art all together.” She added that recording the song brought back a fond sports memory. “I remembered my first soccer game and how much crazy energy was in the stadium and I wanted that feeling to be on the track, so I remember recording the verse like two or three times to make sure [it was right.]”

“The Game” is from the Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game album which was released June 10 to promote the World Cup soccer tournament. Janelle Monae, Timbaland and Rita Ora are among the other artists featured on the album.
