Kelly Rowland is pleased she split from her old record label and insists there are ''no hard feelings''.

The 33-year-old singer has confirmed she wasn't ''dropped'' from Universal Republic and instead decided to cut ties with the label after the release of her last solo record 'Talk A Good Game' is now recording new material with Motown Records.

She told HuffPost Live: ''It's been wonderful so far, a fresh new spin on everything, with writers, producers, just being inspired, just creativity.

''I feel like right now, I just needed something new and I've earned the right to make my own choices and make my own decisions. I wish them well, they wish me well. No hard feelings, I just needed a fresh, new start.''

The 'Kisses Down Low' hitmaker has revealed her latest music includes new instruments such as horns and flutes and she was inspired by some of her favourite female singers, including Diana Ross.

Kelly said: ''I've been inspired by the queens that have gone before us, incredibly strong women who aren't afraid to take risks and just be innovative.

''There are different offers on the table. I just want to see what it feels like. I'm just in the studio on my own and just having a really good time just being creatively free.''
