    All that talking in the background was distracting….the beat is hot, but the lyrics sound corny. I’m always rooting for the DC3 girls though! 🙂

    • Love Kelly December 23, 2012

      THAT WOULD MEAN PERFORMING. LIVE!!!! and we all know how that goes. Can’t blame them for limiting her live performances when Keri Hilson and Miley Cyrus out perform her can you?
      What they need to do is lock her in a room with only bread water and a vocal coach. Hopefully that will drum the monotone shaky voice out of her.

      • Anne December 23, 2012

        I’m no Kelly fan and I think her voice lacks stability but in my opinion she outperformed Keri and Miley. But that’s not saying much. Miley can’t sing at all and Keri’s little voice is so weak that she couldn’t even pull a decent closing out of her mouth when she was doing her best attempt to ‘blow’ at the end which came out more like a whisper. Kelly has a better overall voice or tone than the other two but she just can’t make it through a whole song without having some parts where her voice noticeably weakens and her projection fails. She’s been singing a long time so I don’t think her voice will ever be stable. But again, she has enough strength to outsing someone like Keri or Miley in my opinion. She obviously felt no need to keep up or compete becase while Keri was trying her hardest to pull out a closing, Kelly was just smiling and already considered the performance over.

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) December 23, 2012

        Keri was just as bad chile

  4. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ December 23, 2012

    The song actually sounds good but I’m astounded that she remembered that she has a project in the works. I mean “Ice” was out how long ago? This new project is going to do really badly but I don’t feel bad for her because she doesn’t seem to care enough to get her s*** together. Kelly, to each his own.

  6. Alex December 23, 2012

    I love it! I know it’s only a snippet but I think when the full version premieres I will actually prefer it to ‘ICE’! Can’t wait! And after weeks, ‘Ice’ still remains in the Billboard Hot 100 🙂 #YOTW

  7. Von Tae’ December 23, 2012

    Sounds Hotttttttttt !

  8. Truth December 23, 2012

    Yass-
    Strong vocals!!!

  9. millhouse. December 23, 2012

    Kelly needs to learn how to sing again. Her voice is always shaky when she performs live… Her voice was never this bad when she was in DC3. I guess without Mathew and Beyonce breathing down her back to continuously practice, she just said f*** a vocal coach. Her songs are all auto tuned, and all her songs sound the same. I guess she found a formula and she’s running with it… I dont really expect much from Kelly these days anyway. She aint even busy but her promo is always lacking… I think she is just lazy like a lot of other female artists out there… THis is exactly why Beyonce continues to slay these hos. While they sleeping, Queen B is recording, learning new choreography, planning her superbowl performance, preping her new album, picking out stage outfits, and signing Pepsi deals, all while Blu Ivy is sucking on her left tit… Kelly Rowland, take some notes from your sister… She is waaaay more busy than you, and you tellin me you cant even do one live performance of ICE – gtfoh — I cant respect artists who have no drive. Its sad when your fans see your potential, but you dont see it in yourself. This is how people lose fans. We expect more from you but you never deliver..

    idk why i was rambling like that but i had to get that off my chest -_-

    • King B>Rihanna December 23, 2012

      This is the Truth

    • BITCHPLEASE December 23, 2012

    • WTF December 23, 2012

      You are disillusion if you think a pretty gay male nanny isn’t raising that child. Or Angie B.

    • alessandro December 24, 2012

      she has a live peformance for ice

    • GREG December 24, 2012

      GAWD! its so annoying how the beyonce fans find ANY reason to interject her name into ALL posts……tell Bey to go buy a new bath rug to put on her head while shes performing cause the one she wears looks like it has fleas.

  10. Monstarebel December 23, 2012

    It’s Okaay…. the beat is hot,Vocals sound nice…hopefully she promotes this xoxo

      • Monstarebel December 23, 2012

        LMAO!!! YOU DUMB…IF SHE DOESN’T PROMOTE LIKE HER CAREER DEPENDS ON IT WHICH IT DOES THIS WILL BE HER LAST ALBUM…..LIKE YOU CAN ONLY FLOP SO MANY TIMES BEFORE YOU GET DROPPED!!! PLUS BEYONCE COMING BACK NEXT YEAR LOL GOOD LUCK KELLY GWORL

    • WTF December 23, 2012

      1. How do you promote a song – Appear on shows and sing said song.

      2. Will these appearances impact sales in a positive way – Yes. But only If Kelly gets the breath control and vocal training she so desperately needs and KILLS IT ON STAGE. CONSISTENTLY. If not. Its ‘Here I am’ all over again.

      I don’t know what it is with her voice but she needs to address it, because it is the only thing holding her back and knocking her confidence (and my confidence in her) every time.

  11. Kelz December 23, 2012

    cant wait for the full version. the song is hot

  12. Kellyrowldawgs December 23, 2012

    This song go hard point blank and the period

  13. williNalli December 23, 2012

    #YOTW

  14. speechless December 23, 2012

    Yes Maam!!!!

  15. KNUCK December 23, 2012

    Just listened with high end headphones..

    Her vocals sound way better on here than any of her songs this era…. She is singing full and forward and getting those vowels formed! I love the low octave on the chorus, not sure who is singing that part. I’m very much into pure vocals so I’m excited for this. Beat is hot too!

    • Kelz December 23, 2012

      she definitely serving with those vocals

  16. RICHANDBLACK11 December 23, 2012

    I like this but Kelly girl I hope this doesn’t end up like ICE.

  17. HOWYOULIKEIT December 23, 2012

    And once again Kelly wont promote her s***. I guess she likes to flop

  18. BABY T December 23, 2012

    I like. Wait, is this the second single from YOTW?

    • alessandro December 24, 2012

      it could be but i think it won’t

  19. CB December 23, 2012

    Her Vocals sound strong so I don’t know what some of you all are listening to.

    Not every artist wants to be #1. Kelly has made her $$$ so all she’s concerned with is putting out music that she likes, to keep her name out there.

    • Anne December 23, 2012

      Kelly wants to be number one. She just doesn’t do what it takes to get there for whatever reason. I heard her say in an interview that Serena and Venus made her realize that it was okay to compete for number one and that if sisters don’t feel guilty about being competitive than it was normal and not selfish for her to have the same type of desire to win.

    I am so EXCITED for this!!!!!!!! I want the full version like now!

  22. NAVI December 23, 2012

    omg this sounds good… hopefully it will sound great when it’s official.

  23. Love Kelly December 23, 2012

    OK song but I have said it before. Leave R&B to them SANGERS. Dance/Pop/Pop-ballads is where Kelly excels.

  24. Love Kelly December 23, 2012

    Rihanna found her some distinctive character, consistently great vocal control, consistently (last 4 performances) entertaining performances and emotive key changes this new era. Don’t see why Kelly can’t dedicate time to her craft. That goes for her acting endeavours to.

    • Anne December 23, 2012

      I don’t know which Rihanna performances that you are speaking of but are you sure she wasn’t lip synching. I saw her on SNL and she lip synched and her performance was vocally better than her non-lip synched live performances. Kelly did not lip synch on Diva. In my opinion, though they both have vocal issues, Kelly has a much better tone than Rihanna. Rihanna just records the right songs to keep a big fan base.

      • alessandro December 24, 2012

        have to agree with you for sure

  25. Teenage Dream (Beyonce’s Weave) December 23, 2012

    I was ready to throw some of my best shade but this actually sounds hot. Will wait for the full cut.

    • alessandro December 24, 2012

      the problem with y’all is that you always wanna o comparisson. stop the s*** and aprecciate the music

  26. Lebo(CaribbeanBOi) December 23, 2012

    LOVE IT !!!!!!

  27. Pop Royalty December 23, 2012

    it is good enough she still remember she has an album to be released in the next decade ……………..

  28. Tami December 23, 2012

    Love it so far, cant wait to hear it in full.

  29. Steph December 23, 2012

    Love it…Go Kelly!

  30. Angela Wesley December 23, 2012

    Chudds, I agree with you with all of these distraction in the background. It is
    hard to hear Kelly singing the song. Like another poster said Kelly best
    songs are dance music and ballads. I just hope this is not
    a another Here I am era. Because Kelly is to talent to keep make
    mediocre albums.

  31. whocares December 24, 2012

    kelly aint going no where. wtf is this. weak.

    • alessandro December 24, 2012

  34. alessandro December 24, 2012

    I LOVED IRTHE FIRST I HEARD. JUST HOPE THERE IS NO COLLABO TO THIS. HER VOICE IS ABSOLUTELY F**ING GREAT. YEAH PEOPLE, SHE HAS THIS SERIOUS ISSUE OF NEVER PROMOTING HER MUSIC, I DON’T CARE AS LONG AS SHE KEEPS PROVIDING THESE GOOD SONGS FOR A LONG TIME

  35. Ilovekelly December 24, 2012

    I can’t wait to here the song it sounds so dope And Ice didn’t flop even though I wanted it to promote more..it was number 5 in neverland.. #8 on billboard rnb chart n #10 on rnb/hip hopairplay chart..so it’s another top ten hit under her belt but she don’t promote n that makes me so mad with her because I want her be mega big

    • Girl007Bond December 24, 2012

      me too, but she is not doing enough

    • alessandro December 24, 2012

      i would really like to know why she doesn’t release to other countries other than US, UK. I WANT PEOPLE TO HEAR HER IN BRAZIL. SHE HAS SO MANY FANS HERE

  36. gio88 December 24, 2012

  37. IDK December 24, 2012

    Aint nothing like good ole R&B.
    Likes this joint alot.

  38. Gemini December 24, 2012

    I love it. gone be in my feelings

  39. Hey You There December 24, 2012

    KR sounds sooo good one this song. It seems as if shes figured out that we all love her higher octave range. Honestly, the verses from ICE reminds me of those from ‘Like This’ because it sounds more like she’s talking instead of singing….excluding the I.C.E. part of her chorus. This song (kind of) reminds me of motivation because she’s actually singing. It’s kind of rare to hear from her sing at a higher pitch and I love it. KEEP IN MIND I never said it sounds like motivation, but it is a good reminder that she can’t hit high notes.

    Well, I agree with what you wrote, but not with all of it. Regardless, it’s all good material. Thanks!
