Singer/songwriter Kelly Rowland is currently recording new material for her upcoming as-yet-untitled fifth studio album.

Among the musicians drafted for the project are songwriting team Bloodline, which consists of sisters Nyla, Nyanda, Tasha and Candace Thorbourne.

Some of their notable credits are “Say Yes” by Nicole Scherzinger [Interscope Records] and “Follow the Leader” by Wisin & Yandel [WY Records].

Their extensive resume also includes works for Christina Aguilera [RCA Records], Jennifer Lopez [Capitol Records], Craig David [Universal Music] and Christina Milian [Young Money Records].

Bloodline member Nyla recently collaborated with Sean Paul on the track “Pornstar,” taken from the dancehall artist’s latest album, “Full Frequency,” out now via Warner Music Group / Atlantic Records.

Meanwhile, among the other musicians expected to appear on Kelly Rowland’s upcoming LP are Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, Terius “The-Dream” Nash, Diane Warren, Lonny Bereal, Traci Hale, and Andre Merritt.

Her last studio album, 2012’s “Talk a Good Game,” debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart. It also delivered two hit singles in the shape of “Kisses Down Low” and the Wiz Khalifa-assisted “Gone.”

Nyla has premiered the music video for her new single online.

“Stand Up” is taken from the Jamaican singer/songwriter’s upcoming as-yet-untitled debut album, out soon via Konfrontation Music Group.

For those who came in late, Nyla is a former member of group Brick & Lace, which also consisted of sister Nyanda Thorborne.

The duo unveiled their debut album “Love is Wicked” in 2007 via Universal Music Group / Geffen Records. That release spawned hit singles including the title track and the Akon-produced “Never Never.”

In addition to the above, Nyla and Nyanda have formed a songwriting team along with their other sisters Tasha and Candace.

Among the artists they have penned songs for are Christina Aguilera [RCA Records], Jennifer Lopez [Capitol Records], Nicole Scherzinger [Interscope Records] and Christina Milian [Young Money Records].
