Kelly Rowland is very proud of releasing ‘Independent Women’ with Destiny’s Child 18 years ago. While at the Boys and Girls Club, the singer and actress talked to ET and reflected on the good ol’ days.
Watching a behind the scenes clip of the music video, Kelly recalled: ‘I remember that [music] video felt like everything just came together. Everything happens for a reason. It was just meant to be. That day was busy. I do not know why, but what sticks out to me with that video is, I believe Solange is over to the left.’
‘There was one moment when the choreography was like, ‘Stand up on this moment and then do your hands like this.’ Solange goes [stomps and makes a face]. Her emphasis on making it that much bigger of a movement was so cute because everybody else was here. She was filled with so much excitement. She was, like, 12,’ she went on to add.
Despite the fact that it was released nearly two decades ago, the song is still relatable to many women today.
In fact, it’s often used as an anthem for female empowerment.
Kelly told the outlet that: ‘I am so proud to be part of such a historical record. Especially now that you watch the marches, you see some of the lyrics being quoted on some of the banners and posters everyone has. You’re like, ‘This is incredible!’ It is a song that’s, how old? You know what I mean? And it is still so relevant. I do not know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.’
As fans may know, the iconic song was used as the lead soundtrack single of both Charlie’s Angels movies.
So given the fact that a new movie is currently in the works, would Destiny’s Child make another song for the reboot?
‘I don’t know. It’s up to the ladies. We’ll see what happens,’ she replied, not shooting down the idea.
