was never going to find it easy forging a solo career. Even before the demise of Destiny's Child, Beyoncé crowned herself the Queen of R&B, leaving her former bandmates scrambling for a piece of the action. But every cloud has a silver lining, and after her second album Ms. Kelly
failed to impress, Rowland drafted in dance duo Freemasons to spice things up. Confident she can 'Work'
the club scene again, her latest single is another dancefloor-filling stomper.
A collaboration with French DJ David Guetta, 'When Love Takes Over' is further evidence that Rowland may no longer be resigned to living in Beyoncé's shadow. Fusing classic dance beats with a heady, emotionally-charged vocal, it's a world away from the midtempto R&B numbers with which she started her solo career. In fact, this packs a punch from the very first listen, meaning it could well become one of the
summer anthems of 2009. > Click here to watch the 'When Love Takes Over' video
