Hot Shots: Kelly Rowland Album Listening Party

Published: Friday 18th Jun 2010 by Sam

The music industry’s biggest movers and shakers came out in full force on Wednesday night (June 16th) for Kelly Rowland‘s album listening session at New York’s Hudson Hall.

Hosted Universal Motown, the event was MC’ed by Oprah’s BFF Gayle King, and was attended by the likes of BET president Stephen Hill, Star Jones, Motown’s label head Syliva Rhone ( below in peach dress), Rico Love, and many other key figures in the radio, TV, and press spectrum’s.

Randomness: It’s worth noting such high-profile gatherings are only reserved for projects a label are treating as a top priority. With Kelly having this kind of backing on her side this time round (take from that what you will), it’s increasingly looking like she can blow up on the solo tip.

For, such key figures coming together for Kelly shouldn’t be looked at in a minor light; afterall it is these radio programmers, television networks and what have you, who essentially control (for the lack of a better word) what and who is ‘hot’ and who and what are ‘not’. Considering this, there’s no doubt support from such entities is arguably the most important factor to Kelly breaking the industry (especially the US). Here’s hoping she does just that…she deserves it!

  11. Last Boy on Earth June 18, 2010

    Christina Aguilera, Rihanna and Kelly Rowland, so much obsession this blog has for these 3

  12. BEYONCE VS. WORLD June 18, 2010

    KELLY NEEDS TO GET RID OF ALL HER YES FANS

  13. X,Y,”and Z” June 18, 2010

    I swear, Sam, let’s-be-real, K? The only artist who gets, “more and better press,” on TGJ is Eminem.

    Again I’ll ask, what str8 black-man will support Kelly Rowland, especially when Kelly Rowland isn’t into black men? ….”Orlando Bloom is the world’s most attractive man” is what Kelly Rowland has said.

    Is Kelly Rowland, in-possession-of-any-such “vocal skills” that might negate, marginalize or mitigate any perceived missteps, annoyances or transgressions? …NO!!!

    …Then-what “Fool-Of-A-Black man” will support her OR Halie “I gave up on black men” Berry? …The ones that have been emasculated by Alice Walker, Oprah Winfrey, TMZ and-the-likes; that’s who …!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  14. DANBOFFICIALL (AALIYAH/RIHANNA/XTINA) STAN) June 18, 2010

    LOL @ Yafavecouldneva

  16. The ashes of chris brown’s career June 18, 2010

    @X-Y-Z SAM IS GAY. DUMBASS.
    Anyway SMELLY FLOPland looks like his usual tranny self. He looked so much better and was more successful with Destiny’s Child.

    Listening party? Kelly’s album is gonna FLOP, lets get real.

  17. MeMe June 18, 2010

  18. 8 June 18, 2010

  19. YaYa June 18, 2010

    Hahahahaha at 8. I love reading these comments. Ohh DANB, stop promoting christina, and rihanna. they don’t even care about their fans, and mostly you 🙁 so just suck on 8’s infected c***

    i mean the girl is trying, at least shes NOT fuking for tracks..

    u look good kelly, hope ur album does better this time around.

  21. CISHERE June 18, 2010

    Ok… FIRST OF ALL, KELLY ROWLAND IS NOT A FLOP. You just don’t like it and if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it… don’t even look her up on the internet. And she has won plenty of awards F.Y.I . SECOND OF ALL, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, IF YOU B****** THAT ARE POSTING BAD COMMENTS ABOUT KELLY ROWLAND, DON’T LIKE HER AND HER MUSIC, WHY THE HELL YOU EVEN LOOKING AT THIS BLOG, AND POSTING COMMENTS ON THIS BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE. IF YOU DON’T LIKE HER STYLE, DON’T LOOK.

    Oh, and that, she need rid of her “YES FANS” comment? You gotta be f****** kidding me. It’s sad… if it ain’t beyonce, y’all don’t like it. I love also beyonce too. F.Y.I i LOVE HER MUSIC AS WELL. WHICH BRING ME TO MY NEXT POINT…

    AND THIRD… I LOVE KELLY ROWLAND AND HER MUSIC. I RESPECT HER STYLE, HER MUSIC, WHAT SHE IS TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH. I’VE ALWAYS LOVED HER AND THAT’S NOT ABOUT TO CHANGE… I DON’T GIVE A DAMN WHAT NO ONE SAYS.

    As for my kelly rowland supports, keep supporting her yall
    Can’t wait for the album… september seems so far away. LOL
    GO KELLY!!!

  22. Yup June 18, 2010

    how about a round of applause for cishere? are you getting paid for that? Obviously not. so who gives a shittt!!!! Yeah, Kelly is good. But who cares? She makes money either way.

  23. RLS June 18, 2010

    I love Kelly, but she should’ve just come hard for the US market with Commander. I don’t know, these US singles are just a bit weak and it seems like they are punking out and going the “safe” route.

    The comparisons of Grown Woman to Irreplaceable are not going to do that song any favors.

  24. Ghetto Fab June 18, 2010

    You folks kill me. I see Kelly still got yall so hot and bothered. If you don’t like her then don’t come on this blog. Its pretty damn obvious that Sam and Trent are Kelly Rowland Stans. They have full right to like whoever the hell they want. If you dumb f**** don’t like it GO MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN BLOG!! In the meantime it’s obvious that you h*** are Kelly Rowland fans because you are the first ones that storm in here with comments. She’s not going anywhere so I suggest you all find something to do with your time.

    And as someone said before, At least she is someone that is trying to do her own thing. She ain’t out there selling s** or f****** for tracks. Leave the girl alone. She is on her way to the top.

  25. hihihihi June 18, 2010

    IF I WAS SAMA AND TRENTIA I WOULD FEEL BAD BC U KNOW KELLY PROBABLY READS THE COMMENTS HERE BUT U F***** WITH THE WRONG STANS

  35. GangsterA June 18, 2010

    She looks nice pepole said that the music was amazing and thd food was good

  36. Ghetto Fab June 18, 2010

    To the idiot saying she is not into black guys your’e an idiot!!!!! She was engaged to Roy Williams. And guess what? Last time I checked his ass was BLACK!

  37. loso June 18, 2010

    everybody at the listening party said the songs were amazing and they know people are going to be shocked with how good the music is. I love Kelly she is beautiful and sings so good.

    haters please realize that Kelly don’t read these blogs so she don’t see your hate so who are you hurting nobody. I know some of the haters are fans of Kelly because they know stuff about her only fans should know like what kind of guys she likes. Haters are fans in disguise.

  38. ~TeAM WeeZY~ June 18, 2010

    Um, come on Sam. Stop exaggerating—– “music industry’s BIGGEST movers and shakers” Um, really? You only made that statement because you’re a Kelly Rowland stan and these people are BIG according to the caliber of solo artist she is, which isn’t much. Keep it real, boo!

  39. JT June 18, 2010

    “it is these radio programmers, television networks and what have you, who essentially control (for the lack of a better word) what and who is ‘hot’ and who and what are ‘not’. Considering this, there’s no doubt support from such entities is arguably the most important factor to Kelly breaking the industry (especially the US). ”

    Yeah, because listening parties gathered so much support for Whitney’s album.

  40. FUTURESTARdelux June 18, 2010

    Kelly looks gorgeous and i really have started to like her a lot. She comes across as funny and down to earth in interview unlike beYAWNce who is just boring and “oh so sweet” lol
    I hope Kelly does well in the US and i hope all this singles business doesn’t endanger that.
    Commander is already at No9 on UK ITunes and it isn’t released properly until the 28th so she’s doing well over in europe already ^_^

    p.s please can Mariah stans such as @Yourfavecouldnever get some perspective? how are you talking about XTina & Kelly having a joint “flop” party when Mimi’s last 2 albums in a row have flopped harder than Sean Kingston in a swimming pool? #Siddown.

  41. Jamie June 18, 2010

    To my fellow Kelly Rowland Stans/fans, don’t you just love it when Kelly make the haters go crazy?!!!! You haters think she’s a flop, but you rush to this forum tryna plead a case that can’t be pled. Nice try though.LOL!!!!!! Kelly is about to shut it down. And yes she’s performing at the BET Awards. Why else would she release her singles two days after? DUH!!!! Haters stay mad!!!!

  42. MaZ June 18, 2010

    Beautiful woman!

  43. Gucci June 18, 2010

    what in heavens name is this girl wearing? and Sam girl you know you sound stupid with your blatant stanning. No one cares about Smelly Rowland hun

  44. Jay Jay June 18, 2010

    @X,Y,”AND Z” to tell you the truth *****NEWS FLASH***** Str8 black men are NOT BUYING MUSIC as much as WOMEN and GAYS soo thats all the backing she really needs. Trust me, Str8 black men did not run to the store to buy Destiny Child’s albums and what?….. they became one of the biggest selling female group of all time. AND FOR DAMN SURE ST8 BLACK MEN ARE NOT eating up LADY GAGA’s album and all her singles are top 10 hits….. so there TEAM KELLY BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Jay Jay June 18, 2010

    @JAMIE yes baby!!!! Them haterz just making Kelly even more famous!!! She COMMANDS THEM B****** TO HATE!! HA!!!

  46. crank June 18, 2010

    Death @ too many Kelly posts. This blog was born around Kelly stans.

  47. K.Row Kid June 18, 2010

    LOL @ The Ignorant People. I can’t even be bothered with you all anymore. And why is the first commentor whoring his twitter out? LMAO. Get lives people. Kelly is doing better than you all will ever do so, who’s really the flop? XD

    Gucci and friendz!

    I see the same folks is mad they need to get past it kelly has a album coming out so they are going to post updates surrounding the album yes they do stan a little for kelly but at the end of the day everyother site is posting the latest news as well so what your going to go in on toyazworld YBF B***** Nicholebitchie B-scott & r***** I think not stop acting silly and either say something nice or don’t mention Kelly at all remember you do have a option no one forced you to pay attention to Ms Kelly you did that all on your own

  50. Home Gurl June 19, 2010

    I see nicki minaj fantasia brandy usher justin mariah drake eminem shakira and so on on the front page so I don’t know what you clowns are complaining about the truth is you care more about Kelly rihanna and christina more than all of them seeing as how those three are ALWAYS the ones with the most comments…so blame yourselves for seeing the smae people everyday.

  51. loso June 19, 2010

    Kelly is here to stay and Universal Motown president Sylvia Rhone said that already!!!!

    Haters start hating on Sylvia Rhone because she is going to have Kelly everywhere!!!

    So good to be a Kelly Rowland fan!!!

  52. Muni June 19, 2010

    HATERS back off yeah!?, This album will sell like crazy so don’t come back and complaint about anything. TEAMKELLY ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. ABICUS June 19, 2010

    MUNI, “This album will sell like crazy”?

    i have nothing against Kelly Rowland but you’re truly delusional. No one gives a f*** about her, as evidenced by the two flop albums she’s had already. At the very least, Michelle Williams was smart enough to head to Broadway and try a different career. Kelly needs to do the same. At this point, I’m shocked a record company would even waste the time/money on her.

  54. Home Gurl June 19, 2010

    Her first album sold 2 million and her second sold 1.2 million Her singles are platinum and when love takes over proved all she needed is the right song so I don’t know what you mean by wasting money in a time period when there are real flops going on Kelly has done quite well for her self people may call her a flop but in reality she far from it sure she’s not selling as much as Lady Gaga but when when love takes over was nominated for best dance track along side Beyonce ,Taylor swift, Britney spears and lady gaga she proved that those can easily become her peers with the right song. There aren’t too many people with top 5 hits and platinum singles and albums now a days and rather people like it no Kelendria is NOT one of those people! she makes more money overseas than she would ever make here in america because they’re money is worth more so she’s making a lot of euro’s from shows and album and single sales so she’s a very great investment!

  55. loso June 19, 2010

    @Abicus you are delusional because Kelly is ready to work hard for her album sales this year. People around the world will take notice watch and see.

  56. OKAY June 19, 2010

    Who cares if she flops or not. She’ll always be richer then every single person on this blog. That’s all she f****** cares about. She could care less for her fans. She only sees them once, while on stage. MORONS. But go kelly go I guess?

  57. mr.M June 19, 2010

    where is Fatyonce ???

    maybe she need to listen to the album

    so she can steal some of it ?

    WIRED ? She is not there

    I bet she’s there wearing an ugly mask to cover her face !

  58. HATING IS A TERRIBLE THING June 19, 2010

    @Dan that gravatar is to damn
    but Come on now. we don’t like it when people attack rihanna so we should not do that to kelly, besides she cool. I am not a big fan of her music but I still wish her much success. thats what we all should be doing. each and everyone of these young women work hard. all the hate they get needs to stop. me saying that does not change the fact that I love rihanna and others, im just not going to hate on kelly, she has just as much right to make it as anybody else. this site should be called hatersunite.com

  59. HATING IS A TERRIBLE THING June 19, 2010

    oh yea,
    i think she is going to do well.

  60. Gucci June 19, 2010

    Regardless of her stans who couldn’t get her first single off the ground, she still looks a mess and her wig is off yet again. She better have asked someone in that room for a dollar honey.

  61. keasyy June 19, 2010

    why werent the important ppl photoed ….Beyonce

  62. Muni June 19, 2010

    @ABICUS
    You need to get life and shut f**k, up What is your problem or problem of all HATERS, you guys are really scared that KELLY will make it and will have no reason for hate, I guess, someone else will come along OK!!!!!!!!

  63. DANBOFFICIALL (AALIYAH/RIHANNA/XTINA) STAN) June 19, 2010

    @HATING IS A TERRIBLE THING

    I like kelly, Im just sick of the 292392984 Kelly posts every week, theres so many music artists in the industry, yet we just get roation of the same f****** people every week……it’s kinda boring…….thats why I’m usually at ** because he posts different people all the time……..smh at this sites boring same ol, same ol posts……..

  64. Diane June 19, 2010

    Keep posting Kelly links. The world needs to know about this hot project. Unlike when she recorded Ms. Kelly, which should have been a hit in the U. S. That damn Daddy Knowles. Aaarrrggggggg.

  65. Lindani June 19, 2010

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Your post is hilarious Gucci, I love it…

    On a serious note…

    Somebody tell this boring b**** to take a seat. All of us, deep deep in our hearts (including her delusional stans) know she’s gonna flop hard….

  66. Zett June 19, 2010

    NOTE: regardless of who you stan for, If u have 2 refer 2 OTHER ARTISTS by reworked versions of their names that include yawn flop or b**** to cheer on your favorite; YOU ARE A HATER. Its not making you look intelligent. It only makes you sound juvenile, threatened & clearly shows your mind is on the ones u claim u hate & NOT your favorite. Grow up.

  67. raraskils June 20, 2010

    no bee or chelle to support her?? :/

  68. Erin June 20, 2010

    UNITY by Kelly Rowland … check it out !!! Far better than any ballad Beyonce or Rihanna have ever recorded ~ <3 <3

  69. Jamie June 20, 2010

    @Jay Jay, I know that’s right. She sho’ did command them to hate, and they’re doing just that. She’s everything they wanna be.LOL!!!! The haters can only do what they can, and that’s hate. They don’t know how to love or give props, and that must be miserable.

  70. mochasweet August 25, 2011
