50 Cent Dishes on Why Kelly

In an article introducing his upcoming album “Before I Self Destruct” due out on November 16, 50 Cent explains why he chose Kelly Rowland as his main lady in the video for “Baby By Me”.

50 says, “because she's beautiful...and has a really strong international presence…”
"I ran into Kelly at the Latin VMAs, which I attended to perform with Wisin and Yandel, and I asked her if she would consider doing it," 50 explains.

"You can't forget all the work she did with Destiny's Child. The difference between Kelly and Beyonce is the extreme focus they put on Beyonce to make sure she was completely right. Kelly wasn't held in the same regard, so, in order for her to mean anything to America, they'd have to match the marketing dollars spent on Beyonce. She never received the superstar treatment."
