    The track sounded hot! Couldn’t really hear a lot of the lyrics but it seems like something she can perform well too. I’m excited for Kelly and the single will surely pop. Estelle did pretty good too. I just wish she could dance a little bit better cuz the track is hot.

    BTW..

    1st!

  22. rem March 30, 2010

    I waited for this crap…

  23. Ghetto Fab March 30, 2010

    This song is a CERTIFIED SMASH HIT! This chick wasn’t playing when she said she was channeling Donna Summer. She is the new Queen of Dance Music. They are going to eat this song up in Europe/Overseas. It will surely get play in America too. The Gays are going to EAT THIS UP! The chorus is catchy as hell and the beat is banging. David Guetta outdid himself again. Its clear he is holding all his best tracks for Kelly Rowland, which is great because she doesn’t disappoint. She killed it in that performance. She’s doing choreography now too which is a great treatment for the song. This song is almost a sure hit and that is only off of first hear. Anybody not onboard better hop on now. The COMMANDER is here!

  24. Meechy05 March 30, 2010

    HERE’S MY VIDEO TREATMENT FOR COMMANDER IN A VERY HOT DESERT, LOTS OF MEN WITH HOT BODIES AND KELLZ AND HER GIRL BACK UP DANCERS SEDUCING THE MEN, WITH A SICKNING ROUTINE, LOTS OF BEAUTY SHOTS WITH HAIR BLOWING AND A GREEN EFFECT SHOT THAT’S HAS SOME DIGITAL EFFECTS AND I ALSO WANT SOME SEDUCTIVE SHOTS WERE SHE’S WALKING TO CAMERA WHERE SHE LETTING THE GUY KNOW WHAT HE GOING TO GET IF HE GETS WITH HER…

  25. Meechy05 March 30, 2010

    ..WARDROBE LOTS OF REVEALING BUT CLASSY COSTUMES, REAL SPARKLING, GLITTERING, MUG BEAT FOR THE CHEAP SEATS

  26. lmao March 30, 2010

    @meechy05
    is that you in the avatar? oh my f****** god.
    your ideas for the video are awful and that is why these b****** do this stupid videos because people like you support them, have a sit, I think you need an extreme makeover

  27. Oh Please March 30, 2010

    Her stage presence is on 1,000,000. The venue was not conducive to the type of performance Kelly could do with this song. On an actual sound stage she could rip this to shreads. But for what she was given to work with. Ms.Kelly the Commander worked it out. She gave 120%. Her energy level was insane and although the sound quality was bad you could hear that Kelly was killing vocally. It’s not often that a mainstream artist debuts an up-tempo song live. I don’t know if this was all live vocals or not but what I could hear sounded HOT. Hopefully we’ll get the real single or an HQ performance real soon.

  28. Joe Sullivan March 30, 2010

    Couldn’t nothing personally… Is it an auto tune style song? I really can’t tell!

  29. haaaaa March 30, 2010

    GO OFF! @ OHPLEASE. LLS exactly! Because we need another Single Ladies, Case of the Ex, Cater 2 u, You Want This type of video! Hoehaveaseat

  30. haaaaa March 30, 2010

    CORRECTION @ LMAO

  31. AB-VAN March 30, 2010

    Can’t really hear the words to the song but at least your not running with Gagme making rude videos. Drop your s*** Kelly, Gagme’s being played way too much on the air waves and we need a real lady representing us !!!! Not a, I don’t know what I am, but I’ll poison everyone in my path, kinda lady. Where’s Michelle, miss her lots & lots too !!!! Real women who know who & what they are~ miss that a lot~

  32. Oh Please March 30, 2010

    After listening to it again; I don’t think the vocals were live. That’s to be expected considering she was premiering the song and naturally when you premiere a song for the buying public you want them to hear what they’ll actually be purchasing. The chorus is catchy,but the only thing I could make out was “I’ll be your Commandeeeeer”. Now I’m really anxious for the single. I want to know what she’s saying. I want to hear the track, not just a bunch of base. I want to know what makes this song so amazing. We won’t really know until we really hear it.

  33. misspetite82 March 30, 2010

    @MEECHY05 I like ur avatar pic! I wld like something that is unexpected (no pun intended) but very high glamour but lots of dancing involved (since fatima is involved we’re gonna get this) but we need something that stands out for Kelly (iconic even) Im ready to hear the song in HQ!!

  34. T March 30, 2010

    I LOVE KELLY, CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR THIS FULLY N SEE A VID!!

    SOUNDS GREAT SO FAR!!

  35. Muni March 30, 2010

    Kelly is rocking the stage, WE LOVE YOU KEEP UP!!!!

  36. lyric_lee March 30, 2010

    OMFG!! ARE U F%&**&( SERIOUS@!!!! OMG THIS SHYT IS GONNA SHUT IT DOWN – GOOOODDD I DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY – THAT CHORUS IS FUKKIN RIDICULOUS — THAT CHORUS — ILL BE YOUR COMMANNDDERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! GOD – I COULDNT HEAR THE ACTUAL VERSES BUT I KNOOWWW THEYYYY HOT – IM SO GLAD SHE TOOK THIS ROUTE – ITS MORE INTERNATIONAL AND LIKE “WHEN LOVE TAKES OVER” SHE IS REALLY SHOWING OFF HER VOICE WHICH I LOVE – SHE DOESNT GET ENOUGH CREDIT FOR IT BUT THAT CHORUS IS STRONG AND POWERFUL AND THOSE NOTES 0 SHES DEF GONNA HAVE TO USE HER STRENGTH IN WHICH I KNOW SHE IS – MS KELLLY – COMMAND THAT STAGE AND TELL THEM HATERS TO FALL BACK —————— UR IN COMMAND!!!!!

  37. The Truth March 30, 2010

    I knew it. Guetta gave the better song to Kelly Rowland AND NOT Kelis. Because of the chorus just like in the case of “When Love Takes Over” this song will be a MEGA HIT. Sounds Epic already just off the chorus. They picked a perfect time for this song too. Going for a Spring/Summer release is smart. If she keeps this up she will be the new Queen of Dance music. Hot single every summer, not bad Kelly

  38. zaack March 30, 2010

    Future Smash !!! I’m so Xcited ’bout this

  39. ANONYMOUS March 30, 2010

    I’m sure this will do well in Europe, BUT NOT IN the U.S.!

  40. BellaHoneyB March 30, 2010

    Why is everyone going hard on Kelly? Ya’ll are just fans not GOD I think she’s GREAT and if you don’t have anything good to say then don’t say anything at all. I mean give the woman some credit she’s come a long way from being in Beyonce shadow to finding her LANE & her own SOUND. How many ppl you know who can do that.

    Commander will be HIT it’s a huge song!!!!!!!!!! In the US & overseas. Watch && see.

    COMMANDER B*tch

  41. twitter.com/JBvanilla March 30, 2010

    yaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssssssssssss…..Ive been waiting for this for like 4 days already……….Kelly Worked that s*** out…….Im sad she lip synced, but it was still a hot performance, i cant wait for the real song, mastered and everything……….I smell Number 1 Dance/club song!!!!!

  42. Roabsalom March 30, 2010

    Ok, not only is this a club banger but it’s another GLOBAL HIT! America is not the world. When love takes over never charted in the US but it was the biggest hit in THE WORLD! last year …Kelly has found her niche…I’m sure her 1st American single will be something generic and watered down for the dumb USA market.

    Strange, fans in the US always say they want something different but always accept the recycled list of producers, tracks, beats …over and over again…

  43. Anthony March 30, 2010

    her energy on the stage was amazing!

  44. Tisso March 30, 2010

    Kelly’s one of my favourite artists. This ones surely hot (not 1/2 as kelly) but i hope the albums got some ballads tucked in. Dont you just love tracks like this is love sometimes…

  45. mike March 30, 2010

    THAT S*** SOUNDS HOTTTTT

    The chorus is just gonna have everyone singing at the top of their lungs

  46. Meechy05 March 30, 2010

    @lmao I’m definitely lmao ,these gUrls trying to come for me, lol computer thug …MADD? NICE TRY BUT EPIC FAIL BOO..

  47. Greg March 30, 2010

    Hotttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

  48. BeysBetter March 30, 2010

    this is a little tooo euro pop for me. Kelly please don’t get lost. I need some urban vibe from you. Sweet Dreams worked for Beyonce because it blended the two PERFECTLY! It was both urban and Mainstream, if thats the sound ur going for …..try again.

  49. Sade March 30, 2010

    LOVE KELLY!!!!!!!!!!! WORK IT BOO!!!!! YOU SHUTTIN IT DOWNNNNNN!!!!!! LOVE DANCE MUSIC.

  50. mary March 30, 2010

    WOW! That’s what I’m talking bout!

    😀

  51. Joslyn Graham March 30, 2010

    I am in LOVE wit this song already and cant even really hear it except the chorus where she shows that her range is great. She did her thing with this performance. To those who says this wont fly in the U.S. obviously forgot about Chris Brown’s “Forever” and Rihanna’s “Disturbia” and Neyo’s “Closer” not to mention Lady GaGa altogether. These artists all had smashes in the U.S. with songs like this one. I just cant wait til the video comes out. Fatima never disappoints with her choreography. She made me anticipate all of Aaliyah’s videos especially Rock The Boat and Are You That Somebody. This song is a sure fire hit for Kelly and its just the first single. She is headed in the right direction and I hope she keeps it up. Command 2010, Kelly. Smooches lol

  52. ROB March 30, 2010

    well well well , ms kelly got a lil swagger now

  53. loso March 30, 2010

    This is a Worldwide Hit!!!!!!!!!!! #1 in America too. Watch people and see I love Kelly so much she is so awesome and a great role model and sorry whoever wrote about Beyonce………… no Kelly was not trying to be like Sweet Dreams she wanted to do “Commander” and she did it!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. Jamie March 30, 2010

    This was a great performance!!!!! The concept is sick. Did you see how she commanded the guy to dance? Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! Classic. I can’t wait for the HQ.

  55. OPTICAL March 31, 2010

    Ooooh David Guetta? She’s being smart! Can’t wait.

  56. Ghetto Fab March 31, 2010

    Sweet Dreams????” More like in yall damn dreams. This sound nothing like that wack ass song which was actually one of the only decent tracks off that album. And the only time i ever knew of Beystealin’s ass to perform it was @ MTV Euro awards in her damn bra and panties. Friggin skankaroo! lol
