Mike Will: “New Kelly Rowland Single Coming On Monday”

Published: Thursday 17th Jan 2013 by Sam

Last Summer saw Kelly Rowland sizzle with promo single ‘Ice’. Yet it appears the singer is now truly ready to kick off her ‘Year Of The Woman’ campaign.

And by the look of it, it seems she’ll be doing so with the assistance of hailed hitmaker Mike Will.

Details after the jump…

Writing on Twitter today, the producer announced:

It would appear that “official” means that their recent mixtape outing ‘Number One’ was more a warm-up than the main-course. In any case the answer (and song) seem to be heading into public domain come Monday. Exciting times!

    It took almost 2 – 4 months to film the ‘Ice’ video but yet it was a “sizzling promo single” @SCAMantha???

    LMAO. Yeah, right.

    And Kelly, gwooorl… I don’t know what to say to you anymore. Your sales speak for themselves

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 17, 2013

        When did I say anything about dark skin? I hate Rita Whora and she is white. I think Kelly and Rita Whora are both haggered and ugly, but at least Rita is pushing her career more and wears better clothes.

    Oh well. I hope this single is fire cause chiiiiiiiiiiile

    • mk January 18, 2013

      do you even read the post? ice was a promo single hence the way it was handled

      • YessKelly January 18, 2013


  4. Alex January 17, 2013

    Ahhhh yes! It’s well overdue but I’m so excited! #YOTW

      • YessKelly January 18, 2013

        Everytime these types of announcements are made I don’t sleep well in the days leading to the D-date cuz the anticipation is killing me.

  5. the truth January 17, 2013

    give em hell Kell’s!

  6. aurora January 17, 2013

    She mostly funding her own album i heard cause her label is being shook up so people who dont sell as much are having thier budget cut including her

    • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 17, 2013

      What label is she on and where is she getting the funds?

      • Lax January 17, 2013


    • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 17, 2013

      Cant’t jay Z sign her to roc nation and push her like he is doing Rita Whora?

      • WTF January 17, 2013

        O_O Kelly already been through that situation with Matthew. I am shocked that she is still signed.

      • YessKelly January 17, 2013

        Sign with JayZ? Please don’t let these ideas get out of this post.

  7. David January 17, 2013

    need divulgation

  8. David January 17, 2013

    OK girl..

    Need Divulgation

  9. David January 17, 2013

    Monday will be a day of good music \o


    BABY divulgation

  10. KeNUDiGME January 17, 2013


  11. WTF January 17, 2013

    I am already over it.
    Mike Wil = throw away generic R&B beat with hood basic lyrics.

    Will Kelly ever realise that dance is her calling? She excels on a dance track and sounds ok on a r&b track….I would rather excel.

  12. Kelly January 17, 2013

    Let’s see what Kelly will bring

    Now she needs divulgation

  13. Kelly January 17, 2013

      LOL RIGHT?

  16. @CORNELL_ANTOWIN January 17, 2013


    • OMG Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens… January 17, 2013

      ice has been retired from urban radio though..

      • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 17, 2013

        no such thing. A simple performance of the song on national TV would suffice to change that, ala BET Awards 2011

  17. ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) January 17, 2013

    And it will come and go like the rest….Girl can’t promote to save her life…shame.

    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 17, 2013

      Why is everyone so obsessed about promotion? All I hear is promotion, promotion, promotion, like it’s a currency.

      As long as EVERYONE knows the single is coming, that’s enough promo for me. I don’t want her to be in people’s faces either.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) January 17, 2013

        Because PROMO will make or break a career and as a Kelly fan, you should encourage her to promote her material to the fullest. How ignorant of you to say promo isn’t important. This is her livelihood, bread and butter, why shouldn’t she come hard? That mediocre mindset sure has helped put “Ice” on the charts hasn’t it?? “You don’t want her in people’s faces”….you sound real retarded right now. Go find an “indie” artist to stan for because if you stan for a “mainstream” artist and want them to stay hidden aka flopping, your an idiot.

      • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 17, 2013

        I understand that, but there is such a thing as over SATURATION, which turns people off. There is a balance to be stricken. As long as the music is of the HIGHEST CALIBER, which it is these days, she should have no problem.


      • CHUDDS January 17, 2013

        She had a SURE FIRE hit on her hands with Motivation, and due to lack of promotion her album FLOPPED. Don’t even get me started on “Lay It On Me” and “Keep It Between Us”. Kelly just seems like she doesn’t care. “Ice” came out in like July 2012 and she released a video in like uhhhh October/November? Where are the performances? Interviews? It’s a repeat of 2011 and I am not here for it. If Kelly wants to solidify herself as an ARTIST, she needs to GRIND and PUT HERSELF OUT THERE…because as of right now, she isn’t doing S***!

      • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 17, 2013

        I think you are in for a BIG SURPRISE. I don’t like I told you so’s, that’s why I won’t mention them, but it looks like you like Kelly so that’s all that matters to me. 🙂


      • ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) January 17, 2013

        @WeLoveYouKelly Over saturation??? Did you really just go there like people outside of urban music follow her?? You WORRIED about over saturation with..Kelly??? LOL! Please sit. And the “I told you so” you don’t like to say is because you have no reason to. When have people with sense been wrong about Kelly coming out with a single, waiting six months to release a video for it, then let it flop the following week? Exactly.

  18. Rowl January 17, 2013


    Monday s2

  19. amina January 17, 2013

  43. s_w_a_p January 17, 2013

    I love Kelly more than the next and want her to succeed, but why put out something when Beyonce about to put something out? I would’ve at least waited till March. Hopefully both of them will shine brightly on the R&B charts.

    • kelendria January 17, 2013

      Im glad shes releasing

    • BABY T January 17, 2013

      Kelly’s single will shine bright in the Bubbling Under charts 😀

      • williNalli January 17, 2013

        what is that supposed to mean? You’re just looking for trouble.

      • BABY T January 17, 2013

        It’s where singles that fail to chart on the Hot 100 or Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart go. You should know, your fav has got lots of them 😀

      • williNalli January 17, 2013

        ICE, Representin & Neva End all chart(ed) on the Hot100, so your point is….

  44. Touché January 17, 2013

    I really hope she promotes it correctly so that it will be a success.

    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 17, 2013

      I am amazed at the love that this girl is getting sometimes. Thank you to all 🙂

The first time Beyonce and Kelly was out at the same time,Kelly’s When love takes over kicked Sweet dreams to the curb in the whole of Europe,the second time Beyonce and Kelly was out at the same time,Kelly’s Commander kicked Beyonce’s Why dont you love me to the curb in the whole United Kingdom and the third time they were out at the same time,Kelly’s Motivation kicked Beyonce’s Run the world to the curb in the whole United States of America!
    And y’all called Ms.Kelly a flop? Go to your neighborhood mall and buy Kelly Rowland’ss TW Steel watch collection

    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 17, 2013

    • BABY T January 17, 2013

      Um I’m pretty sure When Love Takes Over came out at the same time as Halo and Why Don’t You Love Me is a promo single! Do you remember when 4 and Here I Am came out at the same time and 4 kicked Here I Am to the curb in the whole world 😛

      • OMG Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens… January 17, 2013

        Get your facts checked or google kelsnetwork
        1. When love takes over came out 21st April 2009 while Sweet dreams came out June 2 2009..there was a less than 2 weeks interval…

        2. 4 and Here I am didnt come out at the same time….

        3. Go to sleep

  48. kelendria January 17, 2013

    yaaaas I cant wait number one was pure fire and it kept ppl interested

  49. BABY T January 17, 2013

    I knew it. So her team are calling Ice a “promo” single now because it flopped LOL. And she has waited till now to release the new single because she thinks her appearance at the Super Bowl will help it do well on the charts lol #Desperate

    • YessKelly January 17, 2013

      Come again? What about she’s waiting until now because she is READY to release an album. Superbowl or no superbowl, if the album isn’t ready, why would she put out a single….SMDH

      • BABY T January 17, 2013

        Lol you’re forgetting she put out Commander, Forever and a Day, Grown Woman and Rose Colored Glasses when Here I Am wasn’t ready

      • YessKelly January 17, 2013

        Those songs were NOT on the HERE I AM album though, at least not the US version, so that doesn’t make sense

  50. Monstarebel (F** Boy) January 17, 2013

    She must love competing against beyonce…

  51. Steph January 17, 2013

        @ Chillin 🙂

  57. antertain January 18, 2013

    I would like a video prepared ASAP.
    The long gap between single releases and videos are HORRENDOUS.

    It really annoys me, especially when I like the artist.

    KELLY AND BRANDY, you both need to slap some people upside their head!!!

    I so hope Kelly brings out a video sooner rather than later.

  58. mk January 18, 2013

    i don’t understand why thatgrapejuice readers are full of hate. there’s no single post without uncalled for hatred. it’s like you get something for saying horrible stuff about other people. if you don’t love an artist why do you even bother to read their posts? just stop the s***.

  59. Lebo(CaribbeanBOi) January 18, 2013

    LOVE MY KELLY !!!!

  60. name January 18, 2013

    Amo a KELLY s2 que chegue logo segunda

  61. KELLY ITS YOUR TIME January 18, 2013


    That the key…

    I hope the video is ready to be dropped soon after like 2 or 3 weeks.

    Honestly with real promotion , a good performance live with DC (Superbowl) we can forget easy how much the promo with ICE was a desaster.

    Kelly has everything to be successfull. she need to work harder than ever because PPL are so ready for her to shine its her time.

    All these collabo make sense , It was great for the exposure (very smart).

    Kelly you can do it. you have to.


    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! January 18, 2013

      I know you’re a fan, but I think her seeing these kinds of comments frustrates her because it makes it seems as if fans are more music executives than fans these days.

      • KELLY ITS YOUR TIME January 18, 2013

        I UNDERSTAND BUT kelly need to promote her stuff that’s it !!!

        I support her with “here i am” the promo was not good. x factor was a great gigg but she take too much time over the promotion.
        When ICE was release several mont ago everybody was excited, when she realese the video it was a bit late and then what …NOTHING…


        that’s why all these collabo was great for her , she on radio and that’s good. But she need to stand alone and kill it. Its hard enough to shine outside of DC. she doesn’t need to be “the hook singer”.



  62. YessKelly January 18, 2013

    I don’t know what to expect, but I know it’ll be great. Kelly never disappoints with the material.

  63. renan January 18, 2013

    YES KELLY s2

  64. n4vi January 18, 2013

    can’t wait

  65. Girl007Bond January 18, 2013

    Hmmm, I hope it´s not a midtempo song again. I´m done with these midtempo songs from Kelly. She has to come harder !!! And the video has to be there faster

    • Chillin January 18, 2013

      it was actually announced a few minutes ago that it will be an uptempo song

      • Girl007Bond January 18, 2013

        Thank God, where did you read it ?

  66. diva January 18, 2013

    I hope its hottt …go go go kelly

  67. DIGGER BEY January 18, 2013


  68. DC FAN January 18, 2013

    Its good to see kelly rowland come out with a single the same time beyonce coming out.
    THIS TIME AROUND IT WILL BE DIFFERENT as kelly as her OWN LABEL SUPPORT so its nice not to see kelly rowland on the back burner.

    Lets hope she gets full label support.

    Sony cannot control kelly now……………………..

    Best decision kelly made when she left labels and matthew.
