HOT SONG

 

Nelly and Kelly Rowland are certainly hoping lightning strikes twice with Nelly's new single, "Gone" (Universal Motown). Like their 2002 smash "Dilemma," "Gone" finds Nelly and Kelly in throwback-soul mode, with an R&B ballad that keeps the modern trappings to a minimum and focuses on the melody like they were the new-millennium Ashford and Simpson. Simple can be effective, and the duo have the balance right here. "Gone" is definitely going places. -- Glenn Gamboa
