Kelly Rowland Revealed That Ciara’s ‘Like A Boy’ Song Was Meant For Her

Kelly Rowland revealed that one of Ciara’s signature songs was actually hers.

R&B singer Kelly Rowland recently revealed that Ciara’s 2006 hit “Like A Boy” was written for her. The songstress also admitted that she was slightly upset about the switch.

She said:

“‘Like A Boy,’ that was Ciara‘s, was actually written for me,”

She continued:

“Yeah. And funny enough, she is honestly one of the closest things to me. We bonded over motherhood. I wonder if she knows that [the song was written for me]. I’ll make sure to call her after this.”

She went on:

“But yeah, it was so funny. I found that out later and I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ The writers and producers told me and they were like, ‘Yeah, we wrote that in your session.’ I was like, ‘No, you didn’t.’ I was so mad. But now I’m happy for my girl.”


“Like a Boy” was featured on Ciara’s album Ciara: The Evolution. The music video starred then-New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush and became a hit. It was nominated for “Best Choreography in a Video” at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards; however, the award went to Justin Timberlake’s “My Love.”
