Kelly Rowland has admitted she cried the first time she heard 'When Love Takes Over', as she immediately knew she wanted to collaborate with dance legend David Guetta
Kelly Rowland says hearing 'When Love Takes Over' for the first time brought tears to her eyes.
The former Destiny's Child star - who scored a number one hit with the house tune alongside iconic DJ David Guetta - revealed the first time she heard the instrumental version of the track at a nightclub in the South of France, she was so overcome with emotion that she knew she wanted to be a part of it.
She said: "It brought tears to my eyes! After that I asked him if I could have the track and I brought it with me to London. The next thing I knew, I wrote a song to it and I sent it back to him and the next thing, it was history."
The 'Commander' hitmaker - who has dabbled in a range of genres since embarking upon her solo career in 2002 - admitted the best thing about finding her niche in dance music is seeing people's reaction to her tracks.
She told Britain's The Independent newspaper: "It started with travelling with David and getting a chance to see people's emotional reaction to the music. That completely made me intoxicated!
"When people want to stand on each other's shoulders and go crazy and they're sweating and they're having a good time, that's all that counts.
"You feel so much love in the crowd! It's such a good feeling, and that's what I want my music to do."
