8. Then she graced the universe with her album Talk A Good Game.

It’s her fourth solo album and easily her most cohesive release. It’s a place where slow burn jams like “Red Wine” feel at home next to the hooky “Street Life,” which has a nice Pusha T verse on it. And you can’t deny the Destiny’s Child reunion on the romantic “You Changed” is anything short of a blessing.

9. She dropped an awesome video for her sexual empowerment anthem “Kisses Down Low.”

10. She remained as flawless as ever.

 

11. Like, incredibly so.

 

12. She also dropped a video for her brave confessional “Dirty Laundry.”

In the song, she she opens up about being battered by an ex-boyfriend, struggling with her career, and feeling jealous of Beyonce. “Love is pain and pain is love,” she repeats over and over again as the song ends. It was a really courageous statement.

13. It was so real.

14. Obviously she went on tour and rocked really intense jean cutoffs.

16. This one time, she performed at the GLAAD media awards wearing all Olivia Pope-white.

17. Because as anyone who is anyone knows…

18. She also was the best judge on The X Factor.

Look at her pick on her weak sidekick.

19. I mean, how could she not be. She’s emotionally raw.

21. Awestruck.

23. And flaw-free.

24. Here’s to 2014, the next year of dominance for queen Kelly Rowlegend.
