Looking good, Kelly Rowland!

The singer showed off her tight abs when she hit the beach in Miami on Sunday following a gym session. Rowland seemed to be in great spirits, smiling and laughing with friends in the springtime sun.

Last week, Rowland confirmed that she would not be returning as a judge on the U.K. version of "The X Factor."

"I loved the U.K. and being part of the show last year," Rowland said in a statement. "Mentoring the girls was such an incredible experience I will never forget. I would like to thank Simon for the great opportunity and asking me to be a judge last season."

Now that her schedule's opened up, perhaps Rowland will get to spend more time with her pal Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy.

"She's absolutely beautiful," Rowland gushed to Us Weekly a few weeks after Blue's birth.
