Kelly Rowland is currently in the U.K. working as a judge on The X Factor. Stateside, however, she's gearing up for the release of her album, Here I Am, which hits stores July 26. Even more exciting, the singer has just released the album's promo pictures, shot by Derek Blanks.

The “Motivation” singer exudes sexiness and confidence, returning to a striking short haircut and rocking strong looks, including chain mail outfits from LaureLuxe Metal Couture.


Kelly told Hip Hop Weekly that turning 30 this year has really found her feeling comfortable in her own skin. "I have a newfound confidence. I just turned 30 this year and it feels really liberating," she said. "I feel that I've come into my own. I'm confident in my voice.”


It shows!
