That Grape Juice Interviews Kelly Rowland

*Pinned: Normal Posts Resume Below*

kelly rowland That Grape Juice Interviews Kelly Rowland

As fairytales go, the last 12 months have been just that for Kelly Rowland. Characterised by increased global success, a US solo smash, and a spot on the X Factor UK‘s judging panel, the one-time caged songbird looks to be soaring to new heights.

With her third studio album ‘Here I Am’ arriving in stores this week, the 30 year old opened up to That Grape Juice about many a topic including her show-stopping BET performance, being an underdog, how her new management bests her former, first week sales, promo plans and much more.

No “what’s your favourite colour” questions here. We ask the questions you really want answers to. And answer them Rowland does.

Kelly Rowland Shouts Out That Grape Juice

Sam: Hey Kelly!

Kelly Rowland: Hey Sammy! How are you?

I’m wonderful… (laughs)

Ok, so the last time we spoke was little over a year ago. ‘Commander’ had just come out over here and you were really excited about the Dance album’s release. Fast forward a 12 months and ‘Here I Am’ is finally at release. What happened during that year?

Creativity happened! I was in the studio and was just trying different things, from Dance music to R&B to everything. I was enjoying certain records such as Chris Brown’s record, Rihanna’s record. I love the fact they still held on to their Urban roots, and added a new twist as well.

After that, I was like “dude, why am I trying to hold myself back for” you know what I mean? Everybody tries to lock you into a specific sound; and I remember thinking “nobody puts baby in a corner” (laughs) – especially when it comes to my sound. I feel like, as an artist, you should try different things and there’s nothing wrong with showing what you’ve been inspired by on the album. And that’s just what I’ve done.

You’ve said previously that the album has been a journey. What would you say has been the hardest part of this journey and how did you handle it?

Hmm. The hardest part of the journey would probably have to be putting everything together – in terms of syncing everything up, sequencing everything. Because you want to tell a story; I wanted the album to tell a story and for me it was making sure that ‘Commander’ and ‘Feeling Me Right Now’ can basically co-exist.

I was finally able to action that process while on a 6 hour plane ride. I listened to everything over and over and over again – which drove me crazy! But the cool thing about that whole process was I never got tired of listening to it and that’s when I knew it was locked down sonically.

It seems like the hard work has paid off. We’re finally here and the buzz for the record is immense. How would you describe the album – in terms of sound and as well as how it differs from your previous efforts?

This album is grown and sexy period! (Giggles) It’s SO ‘grown and sexy’. That really sums up the album. Did I say ‘grown and sexy’? (laughs). Put simply, I’ve just come in to my own…

We are loving ‘Turn It Up’.  And I know a lot of the fans are gushing about ‘Feeling Me Right Now’. What are your favourite tracks from the LP?

My favorite track off the album, (thinking) hmm that’s hard. Oh that’s so hard! I love ‘Keep It Between Us’. It’s such an intimate sexy record and it was fun so recording it.

Speaking of new tracks, there has been a lot of talk about the Hitboy produced ‘Lay It On Me’ being the next single. Can you confirm whether that’s true? And if so when will we be seeing its accompanying video?

‘Lay It On Me’ is indeed the next single! The video process has been hellish just because I’m back and forth from filming the X-Factor in the UK and coming back to the US to do promo. And if I don’t do promo, everybody is going to complain. Yet, if I don’t have a video everybody is going to complain (laughs). So it’s just a matter of making sure everything is scheduled properly. But we’re still trying to find time, because everything is so locked down with promo right now.

There’s been a lot of murmuring about a European version of ‘Here I Am’? Can you shed any light on this? If true, when can we expect a release? What can we expect in terms of sound, and the like?

Absolutely. I’m actually starting the recording process for the international record – which will be out in November. So yeah, that is true. And I’m going in with different producers too.

Interesting. So will the European edition have some of the tracks from ‘Here I Am’; is it still going to be called ‘Here I Am’?

Oh absolutely, absolutely. There will be more bonus tracks on the international record; which is exactly what I wanted, because there’s some songs that didn’t go on to the US version of the album that will go on to the international version. There will, as said, also be newly recorded tracks included too!

Are there any tracks title you can share with us, because I’ve been hearing whispers about tracks such as ‘King of Kings’ and ‘Take Everything’ with Pitbull…

Not yet. I’m still making those decisions even now. I don’t want to tell everybody something then it changes… you know how everybody will be.

Indeed (laughs).

We briefly caught up at this year’s BET Awards in LA and I remember relaying how much people LOVED your performance. Though we always knew, there were some who didn’t know Kelly could kill it like that. Did you feel you had something to prove?

I just felt like turning it up some notches. It’s just that simple. And not only that, but just the energy from the BET Awards, and just being on that stage – period. (I sat back and said to myself) “Here’s the time to show out’. And for me, it was even more significant because it was a case of dreaming of it. I literally was dreaming of performing on that stage and I literally dreamed of murdering it, and I couldn’t let my dreams kill me up (laughs).

And kill it you did! Everyone was going crazy, so congratulations.

Aww thanks!

One of the things that people have spoken about a lot is that you’ve changed management. Everyone kind of looked at it like Kelly Rowland’s Janet Jackson’s ‘Control moment’. How would you say your new management differ to previous teams?

Hmm. That’s a GREAT question. For me…. oh wow (laughs)

..

….

I would probably have to say, with respect to old management, I just feel like everybody is just, really, really, REALLY ‘Team Kelly’ and that’s all I’ll say about that.

Actually you know what …

For me, what I’ve learned this time around is that preparation is key. And one thing I’ve done with this record is definitely prepare for everything. My team prepared for everything, my management has prepared for everything. When I came on board to the new label, studios prepared for everything, the new folks over at Universal are prepared for everything. So it’s preparation. When preparation meets purpose, it’s something huge that takes place. Something big happens.

A lot of people bill you as immensely talented, and as now having your coming out moment. Does it ever bother you that, despite this, you don’t always get the props you arguably deserve?

You know what, it’s not so much that it bothers me. It just means that you show people who you are. I think that it’s really important that you show people who you are and not worry about what other folks say. Because people are always going to have something to say – whether it’s negative or positive. And, for me, what’s “coming out” has always been in there.

A lot of fans are keen to know what your next promotional stops will be; in the way of shows, TV performances?

I had no idea there were so many record execs on board (laughs).

People are just curious, Kelly (laughs)…

No… understood, understood. I just think that everybody just gets wrapped up in first week’s sales, but we’re not in that climate anymore of first week sales. It’s about the major goals; the major goal is, of course, about being Platinum, double, and triple Platinum and selling as many records as you can. It’s making the long-term plans, which is exactly what my team has done. So when it comes to me having a release in July, there are a lot of shows off-air, which return in September and beyond. As of right now, they are ‘black’ and I’m sure nobody has an idea what ‘black’ is. ‘Black’ is the term for when TV shows are down. I can say that I will be doing Jay Leno next week on the 29th (July). There’s more to come, though, for sure!

Thanks for clarifying that.

No problem… Hey Sam, you know what, I just want everybody to know I have a really great team, doing a really great job making sure everything is in place. And they’ve got to trust me and be respectful of that.

I hear you.

Congrats on landing the X-Factor gig! Does that mean we’ll see you perform this year?

Yes you will (excited)

Speaking of performances; you recently reunited with creative director Frank Gatson. How did that come about and what does that mean for your videos and performances moving forward?

Oh Frank Gatson, will be involved with everything I do! Performances, videos, everything! Because he just brings out the best me – he really, really does. Frank possesses such a special gift and when it comes to working with him, he just brings out the best. I just love him and he is incredibly talented.

And is there anything else you want your fans to know?

I love them and appreciate all the love, all the tweets, all the friends requests, all the call in’s, radio support. They go hard! The fact they have showed me so much love…I mean they’re the reason why ‘Motivation’ is so successful and everything is falling into place. It’s because of them, and I appreciate that. I could not exist without them and I love them so much. I really do.

And final question; how does Kelly Rowland the solo artist want to be remembered when the dust has settled?

As a true entertainer.

Kelly Rowland, thank you for your time.

Thank you babe.

    Lovely interview and i am happy she is clarifying some major stuff like working on a video and working long term, and for her to throw around September that means there is the green light for her to shoot the Stephen King TV series with Pierce Brosnan next Month that is what i am most excited, and releasing an international record in November when X factor will be airing is just a huge smart move… the Key is long term and that is what i love about this New Team Kelly

    i understand when she says she doesn’t wanna be put in a box when it comes to her genre of music but I believe she should prioritize on dance music, WITHOUT forgetting her R&B roots.

    Truth be told, this album is not my cup of tea but she’s gonna slay regardless….

    I hear you about the promo thing but she said she was focused more on long term sales……..

    HOPEFULLY HER NEXT ALBUM IS VERY DANCE ORIENTED with some R&B……….I AM IMPATIENTLY WAITING OR HER DANCE RECORDS………

    The Donna Summer of our generation!!

    She mentioned that if she doesn’t release a video, people are gonna complain and if she doesn’t promote, people are still gonna complain……I think her team is working on a budget…….I think their priority s to get “Lay it on me” and the album out before they can proceed with the promotions……..The main thing she hinted was that her team is fully behind her but are working on a budget.

    @YEABEY LIKES TO PARTY! I could be wrong but I think Amy Winehouse will be on Billboard’s catalog chart instead of the current Billboard 200 chart. That’s what happened with Michael Jackson’s older albums. So I don’t think she will have an effect on Kelly’s charting.

    i love kelly the dance diva ! i’m not a fan of motivation or her R&B safe tracks !

    and yes ! she’s the next donna summer ! the music scene really miss this kind of divas :) !
    she’s good but i do not see her team’s love !!! no new performances , nothing promotional at all ! hope it’s not “basic instinct” part.2 !!!!! this is how it flopped too ! but kelly has strong fanbase outside US i know that ;) ! but she needs to start getting new promo ” NO SHADE AT YOU SAM ” !!

    I hope she does not confuse ass-kissing with someone being Team-Kelly. If her team was indeed Team Kelly they would have better promoted this album. She seems like a nice person but she has always come across as being extremely gullible and sorely laking in the X-factor department.

    P.S. There is no way on God’s green earth that Kelly is going to land @ #1 on the BB200 maybe the R&B chart but not the main one. Not while Adele and GaGa have albums out.

    I think Kelly and her management team has done a terrible job of promoting her album. How about gettting on some talk shows, George Lopez, DavidLetterman, Good Morning shows, or something. Everyone doesn’t watch BET and look at gossip sites.

    Countdown will definitely get a video….I’m just hoping Jay-Z doesnt hop on a impromptu remix and features in the video…I mean he can make a cameo appearance but….no more than that

    If she is in fact making a video anthology DVD then most of the songs on the album if not all, will have videos….

    And Kelly’s team had to choose between strictly promoting or investing in another video, and they chose to invest their budget on the “Lay it on me” video

    After the album drops, there is gonna be more promotions

    I agree. What is it with you shitty “Kelly Fans?” You guys are dumber than a pile of rocks! Y’all are looking at Beyonce and Rihanna and thinking that Kelly’s promo should be like that, but it doesn’t work like that when you have other projects and a damn budget! You guys are so uneducated and need to learn about how the music business works before making idiotic comments! Kelly just explained the reason behind the “lack of promo.” What would you do, promote the hell out the album when it’s not necessarily guarantee big numbers (Keri Hilson) or do good/decent promo while still getting paid a million dollars doing X Factor? The opportunity to be on X Factor came while she was prepping “Here I Am” and it was a wonderful way to have the European audience remember her and stay interested in her. And if y’all don’t like “Here I Am” f****** wait for the international version! Kelly’s doing just fine. She’s a busy woman and hasn’t gotten lucky like Rihanna, Gaga, Katy Perry, or Britney. She actually had to work her ass off to get wear she is. If she was a gimmick and consisted of nothing but pop s** and fashion, she’d be getting more shine because of her manufactured image.

    DANCE MUSIC NEEDS TO BE HER TRADEMARK then she can do R&B on the sidelines.

    WHEN WILL KELLY WAKE UP????? SHE WILL NEVER MAKE IT AS AN R&B SINGER…….NEVER!

    Down For Whatever might not be No.1 it sounds too much like On The Floor….”LAY IT ON ME” COULD be her No.1 because it has the same lyrical content and catchy hook like “What’s My Name” with a little bit of “Right There” in it..I’m Dat Chick would Flop….It might go Top 20 on Urban Charts….but that’s it….TURN IT UP WOULD SMASH AND SO WILL FEELIN ME RIGHT NOW!

    I think that the above illustrates the fact that there is no way Kelly will shift 100 000 copies 1st week.

    Other arguments
    1. Most of the people claiming to be Team Kelly are well known Beyonce haters who most likely do not have any of Kelly’s albums.

    2. When you have Kelly track record, you need more than 1 moderately successful single to persuade people to buy your entire album.

    I think that the above illustrates the fact that there is no way Kelly will shift 100 000 copies 1st week.

    Other arguments
    1. Most of the people claiming to be Team Kelly are well known Beyonce haters who most likely do not have any of Kelly’s albums.

    2. When you have Kelly track record, you need more than 1 moderately successful single to persuade people to buy your entire album.

    Even if Amy Winehouse did not pass away Kelly would never have debuted @ #1.

    OH MY GOSH! That is not a Good Look at all!!! To all of Kelly’s cockiest fans …YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE ALBUM(S) POINT.BLANK.PERIOD….I will be getting a copy and I AM NOT A STAN/FAN(yet)…..INSTEAD OF TRYING TO CALL OUT US “BEY STANS” and arguing with us…you should be out spreading the word on the album and per-ordering aand buying!!

    Love Kelly. Very humble, gorgeous, and talented. I agree with some of the commenters. it needs promo.com. There are still alot of folks who don’t know the record is coming out.

    She should be performing on GMA , the Today show, on any show that’s not currently in re-runs. And if it is re-runs, then the release date should have been either before or after the “black” period of TV. Not sure how I feel about the X factor right now, with an album release, but okay. I’ll be picking up a copy asap!!!!!

    I hope she does really well.

Look no further than JHud…the girl has been on every single talkshow one can think of, plugging her I Remember Me album…it hasn’t done much to salvage what was ultimately a train wreck and Kelly will be no different.

    EXCELLENT INTERVEIW – HE ASKED ALL OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I WANTED TO ASK AND KELLY GAVE GREAT RESPONSES – SHE IS REALLY FEELING HER RIGHT NOW LOL AND I LOVE IT

    The fact that a second and third single has already been chosen and that she is already preparing the video for it is excellent = lets not forget that it has only been 3 months since the release of Motivation so she is on track as far as letting that single do it due before releasing another – plus we will be getting a new album in november so when u think about it, its 2 new albums in one year that she has to plan and promote and budget for plus her role in the new stephen king series plus her movie “the goree girls” plus her tour with chris brown. lol im so excited for her – she is going for longevity with this album and i love that – ie what lady gaga did with her prev album – if promoted right i could see both her us and uk albums extending into next summer with a tour for both of them – whatever the case i know her team got it on lock – they have already invested so much money into her so i know that she has alot planned – im just going to sit back and enjoy it – thats all any of us could really do! work!

    side bar – bey was everywhere leading up to the relase of 4 and she didnt do amazing numbers by her standards either so really no matter the promo the album will do what its meant to do and bey herself stated that she has 18 months worth of prmo that is expected so she is going for longevity as well –

    EITHER WAY I WILL BE HOLDING MY COPY TOMORROW MORNING BEFORE WORK – HERE I AM = JULY 26TH!!!

    which in turn means she will be scheduling stuff for months to come as oppose to one week of promo thats rediculous. Also for the person who said why she isnt doing any summer performance she has many spot dates coming up full out concert with robin thicke….atl ga saturday then beatstock, gover power jam in NY…lots of stuff coming up just go out and buy her album n stop complaining and hating on her. She could give two f**** with u ppl on the blogs say because u dont represent for the masses. In 2 months when the album is out then start bitching if u dont see any promo but im trusting her team has a plan this time around and im sure she will hit all tv spots in september

My sister and best-friend argued me down that Kelly’s album has already came out here in the U.S….mind u they are both avid Kelly album buyers! I just need her to realize that she’s been slept on due to her loyalty to a family that was SHADY! It’s time to over do everything from promo to appearances to commercials any and everything! Screw that UK x factor s***!

    Im so over some of these comments LOL…but anyway I thought this was a great interview. Sam you asked the right questions. I am glad she clarified some information for us fan. I am so excited about Here I Am. I totally agree with Kelly about wanting her album to last. I think back to when Whitney released My Love Is Your Love in like 98 or 99…it didn’t peak to high when it was first released but it lasted it grew and sold over 9 million copies and got her a grammy. To me its about longevity and I am so glad Kelly sees that. Her album is a good collection of hits that are not just for one specific group its reaches R&B, Pop and Dance fans. And to top it she is releasing a new album in November for her European fans (which I will have to get)….Go Kelly we right here riding for you. I’ve been down since “Stole” my favorite song to this day by Kelly is “Haven’t Told You.” Many people slept on Simply Deep but that album right there still in heavy rotation in my crib!

    I really don’t think anyone knows that it is coming out. Maybe the guest appearance on 106 will help. It almost sounded like she was being defensive when she says that record executive comment, which isn’t the first time I’ve heard that. I can honestly say that I see what her team is doing for the long run, but I bet you Matthew would have had her on the today show and etc. once again…I ordered my 3 copies so I don’t want to hear that I’m not a supporting fan. Lol. I bought all of her previous albums on their release dates as well. I just really want to see her put all if the haters to rest this time around. Like step it up a notch.

    Unusual Noises
    When any appliance starts generating noises it’s never created ahead of, especially when the noises continue for a period of time and even get worse, you could advantage from calling in [url=http://www.velocache.org/nike-air-presto-womens-nike-air-presto-c-7_9.html]Womens Nike Air Presto online[/url] an appliance repair technician. Your air conditioneris no exception! Even if it seems to become operating at complete efficiency, a buzzing, clunking, or vibrating noise from inside the air conditioning unit is known as a sign that some thing is not appropriate. Spend attention for the noise–what it sounds like! when it occurs! exactly where it really is coming from–so that you can accurately describe it for the AC contractor you have hired. As with performance issues. the underlying trouble behind an unusual noise can worsen over time but may possibly be capable of be fixed using a single replacement component,
    Leaks
    The largest queries when coping with a leaking air conditioner are “What type of fluid is leaking?” and “Where may be the leak coming from?” The distinct variables at play–for instance, you might see water or refrigerant leakage–can indicate distinctive varieties of air conditioner difficulties. In place of just wiping up [url=http://www.velocache.org/discount-nike-air-max-2010-ii-white-grey-orange-shoes-for-women-p-827.html]Cheap Womens Air Max 2010 II Sale[/url] the mess or sticking a towel below the unit! bring in an technician to diagnose the root dilemma. Note, in spite of this, that air conditioners are subject to condensation as moist air passes across the cooling coil, Some water on the unit is always to be expected in humid weather; a puddle or stream of fluid exiting the unit is usually a way more serious matter,
    When an air conditioner is struggling to do its job, it is virtually continually much better to call in a repair professional than to wait till points get worse! An air conditioner specialist can advise you on your greatest option–which will probably! in some instances, be to purchase a new. alot more energy-efficient unit! As summer time approaches! assure that your home stays cool and comfortable with out breaking the bank by resolving to take care of small repair concerns just before they grow out of control. shirly 2012-05-09 velocache.
