Rowland: I watch sport with my man

Kelly Rowland has recorded new track The Game in celebration of the World Cup

Kelly Rowland has said she thinks watching sport with your other half can be a great bonding experience.

The 33-year-old singer - who recently tied the knot with manager Tim Witherspoon and is rumoured to be expecting her first child - has recorded a new track, The Game, as part of a celebration of World Cup fever with Pepsi MAX.

Kelly urged women not to become "World Cup widows" and to get stuck in watching the game with their partners.

She said: "I do have to be in the mood for the sport, but I think it's actually fun to watch it with your sweetheart because you get a chance to be in their world.

"I think it's a nice bonding time. If they have a beer, you pick one up too. You got to just watch the sport, it's fun."

The song has a football-themed video directed by Spike Lee and the former Destiny's Child star and X Factor judge was delighted to work with the Oscar-nominated director on the project.

Kelly said: "He's just one of those genius people that not only has vision, I just love the fact that he's still so excited and creative about his gift. There's not a lot of people who bring that to the table. I'm just happy that Spike was MY director, he's the BEST director."

The singer - who recently left her label Republic Records - also revealed she is currently working on a new solo album that will be very different from what she's done before.

Kelly said: "I'm in the mood for something different. I need a change, it's been wonderful and I'm so grateful to be in the studio with writers and producers who are open to it and just as excited about trying something new."

:: Kelly's new track The Game is available to download from iTunes now as part of the Beats Of The Beautiful Game visual album. Spike's film can be viewed on YouTube.
