Watch: Kelly Rowland Performs ‘Mama Told Me’ With Big Boi On ‘The View’

6ed96b50bd2e18856d82d494f3394b60 Watch: Kelly Rowland Performs Mama Told Me With Big Boi On The View\

Kelly Rowland joined ‘Vicious Lies’ singer Big Boi for a special TV appearance this morning, when they performed their collaborative hit ‘Mama Told Me‘ on ‘The View’ this morning.

Rousing their audience with a lively take on the inspiring jam, their performance gave us no choice but to give the rest of Big’s new LP a listen to see if it lived up to the single’s hype. Fortunately for us, it did.

Watch below…

Great performance!

    King B>Rihanna Replied:

    i was not taking about belting nor screaming idiot.Projection of your voice is different damn fool.learn about vocals and then you can talk.Voice projection is the strength of speaking or singing whereby the voice is used loudly and clearly. It is a technique which can be employed to demand respect and attention, such as when a teacher is talking to the class, or simply to be heard clearly, as an actor in a theatre.
    Breath technique is essential for proper voice projection. Whereas in normal talking one may use air from the top of the lungs, a properly projected voice uses air properly flowing from the expansion of the diaphragm. In good vocal technique, well-balanced respiration is especially important to maintaining vocal projection. The goal is to isolate and relax the muscles controlling the vocal folds, so that they are unimpaired by tension. The external intercostal muscles are used only to enlarge the chest cavity, whilst the counterplay between the diaphragm and abdominal muscles is trained to control airflow.
    Stance is also important, and it is recommended to stand up straight with the feet shoulder width apart and the upstage foot (right foot if right-handed etc.) slightly forward. This improves balance and breathing.
    In singing, voice projection is often equated with resonance, the concentrated pressure through which one produces a focused sound. True resonance will produce the greatest amount of projection available to a voice by utilizing all the key resonators found in the vocal cavity. As the sound being produced and these resonators find the same overtones, the sound will begin to spin as it reaches the ideal singer’s formant at about 2800 Hz. The size, shape, and hardness of the resonators all factor into the production of these overtones and ultimately determine the projective capacities of the voice

    Kelly and Solange lack the one thing Beyonce has…Motivation (Go, Go, Go). It seems like when the first single drops they are doing their best but when it’s time for the second single they give up. Run the World wasn’t big and neither was Best Thing but Beyonce promoted them and performed them like they were Crazy in Love or Deja Vu. If you can’t sell your own music, how do you expect people to buy. Gotta have confidence.

    Reply

    thetruth Replied:

    Beyonce has something that neither of them don’t! She has the funds and the support of her label that will put forth the money for her projects. U can’t compare them bcuz they have never been on equal footing as Beyonce. Kelly & Solange are both doing the best that they can & Solange is not even on a major record label. She shoot her own videos & pay for her own projects.

    Kelly dropped her single before Beyonce dropped Crazy in Love. Dilemma was big and then she gave up. If she kept going then Beyonce wouldn’t be where she is. Matter of face I liked Dilemma more than CIL

    Kelly, girl, you’ve been doing this and you’ve been doing that but you know what you haven’t been doing? Promoting your own projects. You had a single that came out eons ago without a video and it was charting on the lower end of the HOT 100 without ANY buzz, then you release the video and its climbing the charts, slower than a snail, but climbing nonetheless and still you don’t wanna promote it? What for b****? What’s your life about? Girl, get it together! If its doing okay without any buzz, it might have been a moderate success or a success a la “Motivation” if you did a little bit of promo. Do your own thing and focus! People wanna complain about how you had the potential to be where Beyonce is if she or her dad didn’t manipulate you etc etc etc but you don’t have the THIRST to be a star, that’s why your here and she’s THERE. You will always be the shadow, backup singer if you don’t take interest in your music.

    I agree with you. When she performed with Future on

    Rather than jumping around on stage like an amateur and barely singing a note, surely she should be somewhere locked away with a vocal coach and choreographer, preparing for the VH1 DIVA showcase. It’s basically an audition for a future role as Donna Summer….surely she should be taking this performance seriously.

    My boyfriend says Kelly has a prettier face then Bey but Beyonce is still pretty. He said he liked Bey when she was in Destinys Child but he thinks Kelly looks better now and that she grew into her looks. He said that he thinks alot of men think Kelly is prettier but since Beyonce is so popular she will always be chosen over her. He also said that Beyonce looks are overrated and she is average. He said He think Keyshia Cole is prettier then Bey. But anyways they both are beautiful talented women.

    Kelly songs and looks good, the problem I’m having though is that the passion and power to drive it home and for her stamp her authoriy of those few lines are missing. Kelly need to get a serious vocal coach where can work on her power, passion and breathing teachnique so that when she executes her vocals there is nothing short of WOW!
