Kelly Rowland Preps ‘Ghetto’ Video

Published: Friday 24th Aug 2007 by Sam

Some five months after the release of ‘Like This’, Kelly Rowland is finally gearing up to premier the video for the her 2nd single ‘Ghetto’ (ft. Snoop Dogg). Speaking with MTV from the set of her ESPN promo clip – alongside 50 Cent -the singer said the following about the video:

I’m working with Andrew Gura on this video. It’s very, I’d say … gosh, I’m trying to get the right word out because I don’t want to sound crazy. … It’s ghetto. It’s really fly. I feel like everybody has some sort of element of ghetto in them. Think about it. Right? Wouldn’t you say so? And everyone knows what the ghetto is.

It’s all well talking about it, but her people need to get the video out ASAP! Things seem to be looking up for her though; as well as the ESPN spot, Kelly is set to tour at the end of the year through into early next year. Sources continue to confirm that Kelly is indeed recording new tracks… for a new album, perhaps?

Any thoughts?

    I doubt it is for a new album, the rumours are true she’s probably gonna re-release her album, and I have to say I hate when artist do that, I didn’t buy the re-release of B Day (cos I thought the original sucked) call me a hater all you want I don’t give a F it sucked and as a fan i’m saying that, as for Kelly girl if you re-release your album I ain’t buying it either, Ms Kelly is good but naw aritist take liberties expecting fans to buy things twice,

    PS I don’t mind Ghetto but Work is the best track on the album and I thought she was releasing that, maybe it’s a double single? but hold up wasn’t she suppose to release ‘Comeback’ which is good too, I don’t know what Kelly is doing but she needs to make up her mind

    Work and Comeback where suppose to be singles but I dont know what happened then. Ghetto is also a good track but she needs a club joint. Work and Comeback wants to make you shake your ass like Get Me Bodied does…

    I’m a fan of Kelly and i deeply feel that she needs new management. 5 months between each single is outraggeous. Beyonce made like what, six videos in a week. I’m not comparing them but it’s clearly obvious that the managment is not equal, even though both kelly and beyonce have the SAME manager, fishy Eh?

    If Kelly Leaves the Mathew Knowles managment, that will be big news and i dont think she’s trying to make it seem like there’s a problem between Mathew and her self.

    This don’t have nothing to do with Beyonce. Anyway, about Kelly….YAY!

    the reason she is releasing ghetto instead of comeback is that comeback did very badly on the radio, nobody was playing it, but they were playing ghetto instead so she made is a single and it’s doing really well on the radio. but 5 months between singles is pretty unheard of! i can’t wait for the video and i’m glad that she got to endorse espn. she has been working so hard but it seems like everthing is working against her, her manager, her record company, her fans, the media, it’s so unfair. i hope the video is a good one and i can’t wait for work to be released! that’s one hot song!

    Bottom Line she needs to find new management. Do like LeToya and bounce. Have a backbone for peetsake…just move the hell on! Yes Knowles help you thru your success but we all know he favor his daughter over anybody including Kelly. Kelly already showed loyalty to Matthew by remaining within the group when the original 2 bounced. Everybody seen the scandal. How it got nasty when the group broke up but she stuck with him. She is done oweing Matthew anything. Stop kissing his a$$ to please your bestfriend and find somebody who will take the time to endorse you Kelly as an artist. But then again Kelly as an artist is not very convincing due to the fact that she seems to come out shaking her money maker like Beyonce. She is not being original.

    The fans are being fair by letting her know that hey we are not going to settle for Kelly being second best all the time to someone else. We letting her know as fans that we are not seeing the real Kelly. Do something about it! We as fans are just tired of the bull of re-releasing material that did nothing for us in the first place. Best of wishes though.

    @ anonymous 12:32 pm,
    i get where you are coming from but i beg to disagree. i wasn’t a fan of kelly’s until destiny fulfilled when she really sang, and her verses on girl, soldier, and lose my breath were my favorites in those songs…kelly showed versatility in those songs and performed the hell out of them too, and shook her money maker! lol! that’s why i can’t see why people say she’s trying to be or copying bee…what is kelly to do? cover up from head to toe, shave her head and sing country music? kelly’s album was praised by professional critics and reviewers so her putting out crap is not the problem, her album was solid! and as for her dancing, she isn’t doing anything new, she is doing what she always did in dc…now you tell me who the real kelly is? because people keep saying she needs to do her, and on ms. kelly she did some pretty great songs to separate herself from the crowd, songs like ‘like this’, ‘better without you’, ‘ghetto’ and ‘love’ beyonce hasn’t even begun to touch so i’m still trying to figure out what music people are waiting to hear from kelly. the bottom line is that the few fans kelly has are fickle and her management isn’t helping the situation at all…kelly needs to step away from matthew and branch out, stop mentioning dc3 in every interview, and shop for her own producers…she has the talent but people will never believe that she makes good music as long as matthew is her manager!

    You guy’s aren’t being completely open with yourselves, because if you were you would say that despite Kelly’s best efforts she had no reason releasing songs from an album they promised was coming out last year. Very, very stupid on her part and to make matters worst she isn’t very motivated and I say this because I keep coming back to the relations of her to other Artist and she is not as motivated. I love Kelly and I have and will support her, because I really would like her to outshine other artist including band mate, Beyonce. She has been in the lime light from day one and to make matters worst she doesn’t share fame very well. Bottom line is, she needs to be motivated enough to, “push herself!” Get rid of Matthew and see what else could happen for you.

    Question of the day how did everyone hear Kelly’s CD before it was release. Why was her whole album leaked?

    LMAO and she will never argue that something about that just ain’t right!

    5 months between videos is ridiculous. You can’t say that this has nothing to do with Beyonce, because they have the same manager, Beyonce’s father. Why did Beyonce come out with like 8 videos, seems like a new one every two weeks and yet Kelly only has two, 5 months apart? She needs to smarten up. I like Kelly and her cd is good, but she is never going to get anywhere.

She cant be shaking her breast and be doing seductive thing which really to me it dont look right cos she is not s*** and u tell me God would bless that oh pls lets be real God woul;d not bless someone that is not doing his will okay. Like this is not a christian song so why would God bless her. kelly will never be bigger than what she is today period. and she cant sing yes i said it she is a dark skinned weak b******

    I’m sorry I like Kelly but she will never be half as good as Beyonce. Say what u want about B’Day but it definitely didn’t flop like Ms.Kelly so ya’ll Kelly stans need to be realistic and realize that ppl are always going to consider her as not as good as Beyonce which is true. She’s talented but even Kelly knows she’s not as good as Beyonce. Be real about it damn.

    we are not saying kelly is better but they are both talented and yes bday was successful but it was a boring album in Ms.kelly many people could relate to that album almost like destiny fulfilled and if people didnt buy it well there missing on some good s*** I love B and Kelly but i want 2 see more of kelly cause i know she is equally as talented as beyonce but it takes time 2 become a successful artist espically 4 kelly because many dark women dont become big but we all know kelly is equally as talented as beyonce i mean come on they grew up with each other

  21. Anonymous August 28, 2007

    the comment before me your soo right kelly and beyonce are equally talented but in these days its hard 4 a dark women to become succesful but if you look at destiny’s child videos kelly does everything as good as beyonce and so what if she flops with only one video out lack of promo and didnt get played on MTV as much and for her 2 sell 80,000+ is pretty good she old more than some artists that were getting more promo than her so i have give my gurl props but her second single ghetto is climbing up the charts so fast without a video so lets just give her a chance she might blow up with this single and hate if u want…haters were made for a reason and im not going to talk s*** about haters cause i could be a hater myself sometimes kelly is just amazing as much as beyonce and hate cause behind every hot singer is a group of haters so i dont give a f***
