July 31, 2001, may not seem like a special date to many, but some Top 40 aficionados will remember it as the day Now That's What I Call Music 7 hit shelves and enlivened music lovers of all tastes with their favorite summer jams. Released just a few months before the arrival of the first iPod, this is the last Now album to find its home solely in the slot of Walkmans and CD players across the country.
Thirteen years later, we're up to Now 51 and can get any song we want on our smartphones, but that doesn't mean we should forget the pre-selected simplicity Now 7 brought to teen drivers, road trippers and daily commuters back in 2001. To celebrate this compilation's birthday, we checked up on each of the 19 artists that contributed to this mix of boy bands and pop queens.

The rumors are true: Kelly Rowland did get engaged recently – and it was quite the long-distance proposal!
Her boyfriend and manager Tim Weatherspoon popped the question over Skype while she was in Bulgaria, the singer and X Factor judge reveals in an interview airing Wednesday on The Queen Latifah Show, reports E! News.
"He put a ring on it," she says. "It's been a while," she adds of their relationship. "We've kept it very, very low – for years, to be completely honest."

Fans weren't the only ones who gushed over the Destiny's Child reunion during the Super Bowl. Even Kelly Rowland was overwhelmed.
The singer told Giuliana Rancic during E!'s Live From the Red Carpet: The 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday that she got emotional during the performance.
"When I looked on the other side of the stage at Super Bowl and I saw Beyoncé and Michelle [Williams], my heart just went into my throat, I was so happy," she said. "It was just such a beautiful moment."

Wearing a black robe to cover up her smoking hot leather and lace stage gear, the singer received a giant hug from her husband in a moment that was caught on camera and posted to Instagram.

And that was the case for the rest of her dynamic, divalicious Super Bowl halftime show.
Indeed, by the time Beyoncé slowed it down for the last number, "Halo," you could hear her running out of breath a bit from all the energetic, intricate choreography.
To make it further evident that this was not a repeat of her lip-synching the national anthem at the inauguration two weeks ago, she also punctuated her performance with many exhortations of the crowd for obvious effect.
