Welcome to Radio Feedback, Radio.com’s weekly feature where we ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio.
The first time Kelly Rowland heard herself on the radio, it was 1998 and she was in Houston driving with her Destiny’s Child ladies, which at the time consisted of Beyoncé, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson.
Rowland and her girls were on their way to pick up Bey’s little sister, Solange, from school when their song “No, No, No Part 2” came on the radio. Cue the screams.
“We were like, ‘Oh my God, Oh my God!’” she said. “We started running around the courtyard at Solange’s school and she hops out of the school and is like, ‘Why are y’all embarrassing me?’”
