Kelly Rowland Talks ‘Ms Kelly’ Re-Release

Published: Thursday 27th Sep 2007 by Sam
In a recent interview with The Lantern, R&B star Kelly Rowland spoke on the forthcoming re-release of her critically praised, yet poor selling, ‘Ms. Kelly’ album:

The Lantern: Are you reissuing “Ms. Kelly?”

Kelly Rowland: I am actually. I’m going back into the studio to do some more songs. I was very apprehensive at first, but I swallowed my pride. The record industry is very different. Things are going more digital and I want to accommodate my fanbase.

It’s good to see her being honest and not sugarcoating the situation (i.e. the album’s poor performance). I’m assuming the re-release explains the whereabouts of the already-filmed video’s for ‘Work’ and ‘Comeback’.

In other news, UK Kelly fans should be on the lookout for her as she will be hitting these sides in October for a few shows. As soon as more information is available, I’ll let you know.

Your thoughts?

    Look yeah yeah she’s admitted it and sounds very humble good for Kelly but I hate when artists do this, us fans supported yall and bought the album then you decide cos it ain’t doing that well or you jsut feel like doing more songs to re-release it, it pisses me off,

    DC done this with the Writing on the wall album yall remember, the new version had Independant Women on it andhad a blue background still with Letoya and Latavia one the cover even though they got kicked to the cirb, Mariah re-released Emancipation with ‘Don’t Forget About Us’ on it that’s my tune but I was mad at her for that, I only just bought it on sale, Alicia re-released Songs on A Minor’ what 3 times or was it four, I bought the second version now she was crazy for all that, oh and lets not forget Beyonce re-releasing B Day I didn’t buy that cos the original B Day was some hot garbage in my opinion I liked Beautiful Liar but naww I weren’t buying that crap again, as for Kelly I like Ms Kelly it’s a good album maybe the should have waited to see how Work adn Comeback would have done before decided to re-release after one single I know she just released Ghetto but that weren’t one of my favourites on the album so Kelly I’ll probably check your album in the sales like I did with Mariah cos your album is good but why the F do I have to buy that again, I’ma fan but yall i’m tired of artist doing this it’s a liberty, if yall wanna buy it go ahead I ain’t telling no one what to do but I ain’t yeah her new songs might be good but cha this is a p*** take to me

    i’m still upset that her album did poorly. i mean she recieved NOTHING BUT POSITIVE REVIEWS! the lowest rating she got was 3 out of 5 stars! i hope she comes with an attention grabbing single this time around, and i’ll buy the album again!

    see thats the problem now, everytime kelly is bein talked about, yal bring bee in the picture! its not her fault that God has blessed her and her family! kelly is kelly, the only thing different is that both of them WAS in a group 2gether! get over this comparison! bee is on her way to an even higher level and kelly is not too far! stop the Comparisons!!

    How is she being honest? She is still blaming her sales on the internet. No Kelly, you’re just not interesting to the audience like that. If people wanted her album they would have went out and got. It’s that simple.

    no she got lack of promo unlike beyonce’s fatass got promoted all the time and that b**** still gets promoted i mean look at kelly you dont even hear that much about her and she only had 1 video when her album came out so in my opinion she did great in sells when it even leaked twice and people have download it and kelly is being honest lame b**** the music industry has changed sing back in the days

    To the first poster, I hate it when artist re-release their cd too. When Mariah did that I refused to buy the cd again … I bootlegged … I will definitely support an artist the first go’round, but I refuse to do it twice. Not when I gotta sit in my crampped house watching them on my little ass t.v. take two segments to show their house on MTV cribs

    Am i the only one thats baffled why there’s a need for a re-release? The albums full of hot songs, why not spend time promoting the damn album (By releasing singles off it) instead of worrying about recording more songs that arent gonna be heard by the masses?

    If this girl wants to boost album sales, release some singles and promote the album already. The music speaks for itself, its a good album! All thats lacking is promotion!

    kelly needs to realize that really her re-release would flop more that the 1st one and that will be a shame. anyways the jealous moron that called beyonce fat ass, beyonce looks so good she is thick not fat and kelly got all the promotion in the world, people just dont care and like kelly, may be if she was finer , she would get props, look at her ugly she looked in the making of ghetto, in the video they brightened her to make her look better. kelly u aint gonna be a big solo artist okay. it will never happen for u.

    you guys are right kelly didnt get the proper promotion like they did with beyonce :O

  22. lyd October 3, 2007

    hi, i’m french and i really like Kelly, and her album is great!!! she should’ve release more single (the show, comeback, work, still in love with my ex…) music and video, here i’m sure people would’ve like it and see her as an solo artist different from B,
    i don’t know who gives her advice before releasing a single but she should read her fans needs!!!
    and u’re all right saying she doesn’t have a good promotion with the right singles!!!
    someone can tell here to release “work” and “comeback” video pleasssssssssssssseeeeeeee she’ll see that she’s more successful than she thinks,

    fat ass or skinny ass whatever y’all say home girls destiny is failure and it cant be changed.she needs to be light skinned, brown skin is ugly

  24. Anonymous October 3, 2007

    why does it hurt u h*** when the fact is said about that dark skin slave floplalnd. she is dark skin so therefore she cant be in the limelight. dark skin people would always be less equal to a human being. she will never do well cos she is dark skin period

  25. Anonymous October 3, 2007
