Rowland: “My Album Is Coming Out Next Year”

Published: Sunday 12th Sep 2010 by Sam

Following a number of false-starts, Kelly Rowland has confirmed that her third studio album will not be hitting stores this year.

Full story below…

The news came during Rowland’s interview with Paper Magazine at a New York Fashion Week event this weekend:

Your new material continues to receive a ton of buzz. When can we expect the album?

Next year for right now. I’m still working on it. A friend of mine, Bryan Michael Cox who did Mariah’s “We Belong Together” with Jermaine Dupri — we’re all going back in the studio because they tell stories so well. So we’re going back in to write more stories. {Source}

If this isn’t an indicator that Rowland’s team have gone back to the drawing board Stateside (as in from scratch), I don’t know what is. Nonetheless, the latest delay could prove either beneficial or harmful to the project.

On the one hand, Kelly has hit the studio with some real industry heavy-hitters as of late (see: JD, Bryan Michael Cox, Tricky Stewart, The-Dream); a fact which bodes well for her chances of finding that US smash (something neither ‘Rose Coloured Glasses’ nor ‘Grown Woman’ were – unfortunately). What’s more, a successful album requires solid set-up – something a rushed release of her newly recorded material would not have allowed for.

However, in keeping it real, public interest can only sustain for so long. I mean at least Europe saw ‘Commander’ and now ‘Forever & A Day’ get the full single treatment (video et al); the US nothing.

Call it stanism or whatever you chose, but it’s all still to play for and Ms. Kelly can (and hopefully will) win. Yet, yours truly would be lying if I said this latest set-back didn’t make her uphill-battle that much steeper. It’s gonna be a long road. Are you riding with Kelly?

Your thoughts?

    Damn…
    I’m not even going to lie…That’s really sad. But I have faith in her!

  2. True Blue September 12, 2010

    I blame Guns N’ Roses for starting this trend of delaying an album to no end…

  3. Trevor September 12, 2010

    As long as Kelly is in the studio and working with huge producers and writers im happy. She will bring her best material on this album.

  4. Eric Crawley September 12, 2010

    yea..i think she got this

  5. Jazybelle September 12, 2010

    Keliandra needs to get it togheter now smh

  6. REASONABLE VOICE September 12, 2010

    Poor woman. We all know this was going to flop. None of her singles have charted in the States and that’s truly pathetic. If this was Rihanna you’d would have a 3-paragraph rant but since it’s Kelly Rowland here comes the delusion and the excuses. I feel bad for Kelly because she still has not seen real success since her debut album.

  7. Dave September 12, 2010

    I hope the best for her too, but wtf?!

  8. BEYONCELOVER1993 September 12, 2010

    I guess it’s Beyonce’s fault…Im just saying it before someone else does.

  9. movieman September 12, 2010

    dead beyonce comes out next year too poor kelly beyonce gives her a year the time and she still messes it up lmao

  10. So Me September 12, 2010

    I really wanted Kelly’s album to come out this yr. Now Beyonce and Kelly have albums coming out in the same yr. I can see the amount of haters beyonce is going to get when its time for her to release something now.

  11. goats suck September 12, 2010

    This woman should be ashamed of herself, and her fans should be even MORE ashamed for stanning for this mediocre chick!

    Uh-Oh, I smell a FLOP! And I’m sure she and her team smelled the same thing, which the delay is a result of!

    @Music Lover

    Yes! Trent needs to put in his 2 cent like Sam does on Trent’s posts.

    Come on, Trent, SLAY this post!

  37. royalkev September 12, 2010

    I didn’t read why there’s a delay… but, Kelly is obviously doing a whole new album. I frankly do not care anymore about kelly or her music! It’s becoming annoying. She’s beyond confusing! This false confidence is just wack! She can’t come up with a release date, can’t decide what type of music she wants to record, she can’t make a decent video for her current singles(or decide which ones get a video). I think Kelly should just become an actress!

  38. C September 12, 2010

    how the hell riri got her album ready to be shipped and beyonce in the studio as well, I hope kelly brings it hard cause my fav is on the way 🙂 haters stay pressed when pink friday drops minaj will have 2010 nailed, young money really are bringing it.

  39. quanberg September 12, 2010

    SO WHAT IF SHE HAD 2 YEARS, LET US NOT FORGET THAT MS.KELLY WAS WORKING WITHOUT A LABEL AT FIRST. SO NOW SHE IS RE-INVENTING HERSELF AND COMING HARD. AND AS SHE’S STATED, SHE CAN’T BE AFRAID CAUSE BEYONCE IS COMING OUT. LET THEM BOTH SLAY ON THE CHARTS. IT IS UP TO THE FANS TO GET KELLY WHERE SHE NEEDS TO BE. I SAY LET HER DO WHAT SHE HAS TO DO !!! I’VE GOT UR BACK MS. KELLY 100% ALWAYS !!!

  40. harvey September 12, 2010

    Whyy yall turn backs on kelly its stupid how the US radio didnt add RCG too there playlist if kelly prolly gonna debut with RCG next week.I allready saw the media base in tons of states they play the song but dont add it to there playlist.the music industray is f***** up.cuz of the radio stations two amazing singles and this whats happens. come on I need her stuff to get played.

  41. spring September 12, 2010

  44. GangsterA September 12, 2010

  45. OUPS I S*** ON YOU AGAIN September 12, 2010

    She just can make a mixtape like Teirra Mari and Jojo?

    PS:DONT BLAME IT ON MATTHEW HEY? LMAO

  46. Kicktheeardrum September 12, 2010

    This is honestly an epic fail. 3 singles not hitting the Hot 100. I like her but she needs to get her act together. This is FAR worse than Ciara’s pushbacks.

  47. Music Lover September 12, 2010

    where is this over the top, never done before, epic, flawless 3D video of rose color glass that you hyped and buttered up at SAM?

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    All this hype and butter these Kelly Rowland Stans put on her is crumbling. Its a f****** shame that Kelly Rowland cant get her s*** together.

    Its so disappointing

  48. truthis September 12, 2010

    So u mean to tell me Kelly released *ALL* them singles and a *VIDEO* (yes she released that wackass commander) and waiting til next year….Guess she gonna try til 2013 to find a hit….Im sorry just do a album release it and let it do what it do…..cause frankly dont think Kelly gonna sell at all…If Kelly trying to find the formula jd and bcox did with Mariah and Monica she in for a letdown!!!!!!!!!

  49. Jamie September 12, 2010

    Why do I keep seeing all of these Team Weezy entries? What are you trying to prove? I mean, if the album were coming out next week would you even had purchased it? NO! So why waste your time posting in a Kelly Rowland post? Since you’re Team Weezy, have you gone to see him, wrote him a letter? Put some money on his book? Handle YOUR business and take care of that Jail Bird and them f***** up teeth. Because I’m going to be a loyal Kelly Rowland fan regardless. I still have my money for my five copies of Kelly’s album. So…?

  50. Jamie September 12, 2010

    @ The Kiddz:

    Don’t you have an STD to catch with your d***-sucking and riding ass? If the damn album is not ready, it’s not ready. It’s as simple as that, and I doubt Beyonce is laughing at Kelly if she’s her sister as she says.

  51. C-mo Love September 12, 2010

    With all that negative energy Kelly probably won’t sell. But with POSITIVE THINKING and TRUST that she knows what she is doing SHE WILL. I am on team she knows what she is doing and team she is trusting her own thinking. She is the “Commander” of her own ship and I am glad that she is taking her time. Aint no rush. We have waited and if she is true to her it will be a BOMB ALBUM. Keep going Ms. Kelly. Shake the haters off!

  52. ~TeAM WeeZY~ September 12, 2010

    @Jamie

    I’m not trying to prove anything, because clearly Kelly is proving her own mishaps herself! If she had decent music on her album, I would purchase it if it came out this year or next year, but that doesn’t discard the fact the she’s a less than mediocre solo artist.

    And no, I’m not going to see Wayne or write him a letter? And Wayne is FAR from my business, he’s just entertainment, honey! I don’t need to take care of him or his f***** up teeth. Maybe you should take care of Kelly’s destined flop of an album, if she EVER releases it. You don’t wanna compare Wayne and Kelly’s success so stop while you can!

    And what is it with you simple minded fools defending your favorite artist by bashing the artist in a person’s gravatar? Is it because you don’t have a good enough comeback? I’d like to think so.

    This is NOT a Kelly fansite (no matter how much Sam stans), therfore I can comment under a Kelly post if I very well want to, no? If you have a problem then you can take yo happy ass over to a KR fansite. K?

    And good for you for buying 5 copies of her album, she’ll be sure to sell about 8 copies now.

  53. thekiddz September 12, 2010

    @Jamie

    Awwww…did I upset you? Maybe if Kelly caught an STD, people would actually care about an album that’s been pushed back farther than John Legends hair line.

  54. True Blue September 12, 2010

    ^^^ OUCH!!!

  55. drfenty September 12, 2010

    the funny thing is if this was rihanna…sam and trent wud have trully slaughtered her and the handling of her album

    but since this is kelly who can do no wrong…….

  56. Rihsus September 12, 2010

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OMG OMG OMG
    *picks self up floor*

    I called this sh!t back in a RiRi post when her album date was announced or maybe it was an Only Girl post or something anyway, gerl people have already forgotten about Commander in states so you might wanna release this thing in the UK alone.
    Waiting to hear C-Errors inevitable push back as well.

  57. Chick Boom September 12, 2010

    **DEAD**

    Kelly Oh Kelly…

    I wonder who Kelly’s small pressed fanbase is gonna blame for this one…

    Just face it… She. Ain’t. No. Diva.

    With Beyonce coming out next year Kelly will have no chance. That Album mightest well be pushed back to 2020.

    I guess she never bumped like she wanted to…

    Kelly your career is a FLOP… You mightest well take a full time job as the X Factor judge.

    @drfenty

    IKR! LOL
    I don’t have anything against Kelly but the way TGJ crawls into her ass but slags on RiRi simply cuz she’s more successful then their favs, I can’t help but laugh.

  59. Mike September 12, 2010

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BEYONCE HAS STAYED AWAY FOR LONG ENOUGH……

    GIVEN HER ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD

    AND SHE STILL CAN’T BRING OUT AN ALBUM

    SO I GUESS BEYONCE SHOULD WAIT UNTIL 2012 NOW

  60. harvey September 12, 2010

    Commander her overseas single did good Rose Colored Glasses:TBA

  61. iLoveXtina September 12, 2010

    Maybe she should move to Europe & continue her “career” there?

    such a shame, i surprisingly like “Rose Colored Glasses”

  62. Music Lover September 12, 2010

    LIL Willow Smith album is gonna come out before Ms. Kelly Rowland.

    LMAOOO

    THis right here is so f****** disappointinggggggggggggg

  63. Phoenix15 September 12, 2010

    Bin a fan of kelly for ages, really liked her new sound but now i think she’s taking her fans for granted! fans in the UK have been behind her with everything she’s released and to what reward? I think her and her team are focussing too much on getting her sucess in the US and are just assuming that whatever she puts out internationally it’ll do well…not impressed and no matter how great her album is I won’t be buying!!!! used to complain about the Beyonce comparisons but at least she knows how to treat her fans as you never hear of these kind of constant delays from her…why….because beyonce doesn’t start talking up an album with release dates when it’s not even ready! NOT IMPPRSSED!!!!

  64. True Blue September 12, 2010

    Hell, Dre’s “Detox” might come out before Kelly’s album.

  65. UGh September 12, 2010

    All Kelly needs to do is come out with a new look, new hair, new clothes , new attitude. She should wear next to nothing when she’s performing and doing photo shoots. she should also take a few partially nude promotion pics and put some in her album booklet. i guarantee this will work. This is what the music industry has become. No one gives a s*** about talent anymore its all about your imagine. f*** a good voice.Sad but true.

  66. Chick Boom September 12, 2010

    @Kayla

    Her taking time off doesn’t mean anything

    She only took 3 years off and still flopped

    Alicia Keys always takes around 3 years off between each album and she doesn’t flop.

    Mariah Carey took 4 years off and cameback and slaughtered with The Emancipation of Mimi

    So your point??

  67. Chick Boom September 12, 2010

    ^^WRONG POST

  68. Independent Thinker September 12, 2010

    This is Kelly’s M.O. I’m dissapointed but not the least bit surprised. I just hope this does not turn into Ms.Kelly part 2; Kelly spends nearly a year recording, then in the final hour decides to “re-draft” the album in favor of what she thinks is ‘hit worthy’ material( “Like This”, “Ghetto”, etc.). We all know how that turned out. However, Kelly is under new management and backed by a new label. Hopefully this era will be the one that puts Kelly in the lane she belongs in; A-list solo superstar. If the label truly markets and promotes Kelly properly, things should pop off. It’s going to take a REAL set up though, they can’t just throw songs to the public in hopes that something will stick. They need to pick a single that they truly believe in, deliver it to radio IMMEDIATELY, film and release a video IMMEDIATELY and begin promoting and performing it IMMEDIATELY. Videos that have been shot should actually be released (Rose Colored Glasses, anyone). It’s time for Kelly and all of the people that are on her payroll to get it right. Hopefully, it will not take them another year to do that. Here’s hoping we’ll get an early first quarter release in 2011. Wow, 2011. You’re killing me Kelly. Your KILLING me!!

  69. smh September 12, 2010

    okay kelly.. now you’re in our own damn head miss girl! stop listening to the daily’s and the playbacks over and over again.. naturally you are gonna get tired of it and cut it from the album before you give it a chance! just stand behind it.. once you record something, leave it alone and come back and listen with fresh ears. i’m telling you this because i’ve been in the industry for 10 plus years and worked w/ ALL of the favs (excluding mj) and artists do this over and over again! but take heed to this advice, because you will never release an album and be 100% unless you get out of your OWN WAY! don’t leak a damn thing else until you are happy 90% of the tracks you are about to release out into the wild!

  70. Chick Boom September 12, 2010

    @UGH

    KElly has already done that with her recent photoshoots…so your point

  71. Rudeboi September 12, 2010

    The only problem I have with this news is that it wasnt said earlier and that the first 2 singles got such sloppy treatment, even to this day NOOO f****** video !!! thats f****** sloppy !!!! Even if you wanna push the f****** album until next year(whch isnt that far) Kelly should have pushed the 2 singles anways and support her art to the end, she didnt even perform “Grown Woman”.

    At the end of the bloody rants, I still support this sloppy b****, and I hope she can treat here music and her fans better in the future. I am sick of hearing rumors about the album on blogs and tweets. When your f****** ready to drop and album we want an official statement from you, with confirmed dates for everything from singles, videos, right down to the album release, no more sloppy s*** Kelly. No matter whats going on with the creative process its no F****** excuse for you and your label sloppy unorganized behaviour.

    To the so called fans of Kelly that are vowing to no longer support her because she decide to invest more time in the creative process of here material,which is to benefit you ,I would just like to say on behalf of Kelly Rowland: F*** YOU !( most of you never even bought a 99 cent single from Kelly a day in your patheic lives)

  72. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) September 12, 2010

    I suppose she and Beyonce will be doing a colabo next year too(Tongue)!

  73. BENJAMIN September 12, 2010

    I give up now. I really thought this was gonna be her year, but I just don’t know anymore-just like with Lauryn Hill.

  74. Rudeboi September 12, 2010

    Am sure Kelly/label knws Beyonce Album is coming next year, and frankly I dont see why Kelly should be rushing to release an album only because beyonce is on vacation, if its good music and she is all ready to get sexed up based on here YRB photoshoot, exciting times are ahead, Kelly is ready to roll with the big girls so lets she what she got, now am actually super excited cuase either she will crash and burn like Xtina&MC or soar to new heights of super stardom.

  75. xedos September 12, 2010

    Rihanna sending b****** back to the studio

  76. xedos September 12, 2010

    can’t blame Matthew for the s*** now

  77. Kevin September 12, 2010

    Ms. Kelly should have just stfu to begin with.

    HOW F****** EXCITED WOULD WE ALL HAVE BEEN IF WE HAD HEARD FROM THESE SMASH HIT MAKERS THAT THEY HAD BEEN HITTING THE STUDIO WITH ROWLAND AND MAKING MONSTER TRACKS THEY ARE ALL SUPER PROUD OF?! THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO EXCITING! BUT INSTEAD, ROWLAND GOES OUT ON THESE BS PROMO TOURS AND TALKS ABOUT HOW HER ALBUM IS COMING OUT (how many damned release dates did she give…………….?) HOMEGIRL DIDN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM TITLE PICKED.

    KELLY: FINISH AN ALBUM, FINE TUNE EVERY SONG. MAKE IT AS GOOD AS YOU CAN MAKE IT. BE A PERFECTIONIST. WORK YOUR ASS OFF. FEEL GUILTY IF YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH WORK DONE.

    THEN WHEN YOU FIND ONE YOU REALLY LOVE, SHOOT A VIDEO, AND MAKE SURE IT’S AMAZING. WHEN IT’S PICKED, YOU HIT THE U.S. AND PERFORM THAT ISH UNTIL EVERYONE KNOWS IT. UNTIL PEOPLE ARE SICK OF IT!

    THEN, ONCE THE SINGLE IS UN FULL SWING AND IS A SUCCESS, YOU RELEASE THE ALBUM TITLE, AND YOU RELEASE THE ALBUM COVER, AS WELL AS A 2ND SINGLE. THEN PERFORM MEDLEY’S OF THE 1ST AND SECOND.

    THEN YOU DO INTERVIEWS, AND DISCUSS YOUR WORK. DISCUSS YOUR NEW ALBUM. DISCUSS THE SLEW OF AMAZING COLABS. GET PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT IT. YOU DON’T HAVE TO GET BEYONCE’S NUMBERS, BUT PEOPLE NEED TO REALLY KNOW WHO YOU ARE. LET’S GET ON THE LEVEL OF ALICIA KEYS! YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL.

    ALSO, WORK WITH KANYE WEST. THAT DUDE IS A SMASH HIT MAKER. AND EVERYTHING KANYE DOES BLOWS UP, BECAUSE THE PRESS LOVES HIM. A TWEET FROM HIM SAYING THAT YOU TWO WERE WORKING TOGETHER WOULD MEAN A HELL OF A LOT!

  78. SparkD September 12, 2010

    Can we blame Willow Smith?

  79. Robier September 12, 2010

    Please…..all of this is a fear of floppin…… u can delay and push back till 2014 if these kids don’t buy it u will flop. So just do it and move the hell on

  80. Jamie September 12, 2010

    No one is to blame for Kelly’s pushback especially when she never solidified a release date. She only said Fall Release and now she’s saying next year. She’s only adding to the album, and I’m all for it. Rihanna ain’t sending nobody to no studio when her ass wasn’t there that long her own damn self. Willow is a damn child so she’s is irrelevant. I don’t even understand how grown men and women can fix their mouths to even compare a 9 year old to grown women. That’s a poor argument.

    @Team Weezy please don’t waste your time posting paragraphs. You’re not important to me so I don’t read them.

    @ The Kiddz either you’re exactly what your name is or a damn f** so you don’t matter either.

  81. True Diva September 12, 2010

    I usually take up for Kelly on here but I’m so sick of these excuses she is feeding to her fans & the media! If Sam or Trent aren’t gonna speak the truth & keep it 100 then I will!!!!! She’s all over Urban blogs now but in about 2 to 3 months it will not be the case, she will get losted in the dust! She started off doing a dance inspired album now she seems to be going in the Urban direction! She cut off her hair to make herself appear more interesting & edgy like Keri Hilson, Rhianna, Fantasia (More Urban & street) but it’s so not her style! Ppl can see fakeness from a mile away honey! Were not stupid! That’s 1 reason why Rhianna & Ciara have been successful solo artists bcuz they don’t follow trends they set there own trends & fashion style. My advice to you Ms. Kelly if u read this is to “Be Yourself” & stop trying to be sumthin u r not! Be different & set yourself apart from what other female artists are doing. Music fans are constantly looking for artists that has there own unique style & swagger, tht is what appeals to ppl. When u came out with Commander that song was sumthin new & fresh & appealing bcuz it was a sound that many ppl haven’t heard! You have over 11 million views of your Commander video on Vevo! Does that not tell you anything???

    @Jamie

    Obviously I am that important to you, considering you addressed me FIRST about your problems with MY comments. Try again, sweetness.

  83. criss_vaughn September 12, 2010

    STOP RELEASING SINGLES IF YOU KNOW YOU’RE ALBUM AIN’T DONE. .IN MOST CASES, IT’S NOT SMART.

    This is Ms. Kelly part 2. 5 songs: RCG, Grown, Commander, Forever and Chick, and she cant do nuthin with all of ’em. We’re gonna get a 12 track album next yr with those songs, just like we had Still In Love, Flashback, etc on Ms. Kelly.

    Kelly just flopped her career.

  84. Jeremy Danté September 12, 2010

    looking to hear what she has been working on; i feel like she is lost in some of the material i have heard from her. i really like ms. kelly, that album had a lot of great songs but wasn’t as dope as i wanted & expected from kelly. she has the figure, the face & vocal ability all she needs is team players that can enhance that. i feel like she allowed beyonce to stay in the spotlight for too long & now it’s possible for her to faulter in that shadow. that & still, i know many, many, many people that are rooting for kelly to f*** with some next level s***. im riding, but make the ride worth it kell.

    thanks for posting this, you guys are doing great. you are slaying urban media blogs completely.

  85. Bob September 12, 2010

    I love Kelly so much, but people are not going to be waiting forever for her new stuff. She needs to stop pushing things back, pick a date, and stick with it. The same thing happened with the Commander video. People were really feeling it, but she kept pushing the video release back. my advice to Kelly is to release the Rose Colored Glasses, Grown Woman, and Forever and A Day videos soon, since the former two songs have nbeen out for such a long time. Had she released the Grown Woman video sooner, tnat song could have been a smash here. She needs to PERFORM it too. She should go on lots more interviews and perform all her singles, and do one at a time to ensure each lives its life to the fullest. I CANNOT wait for her album, it’s going to be amazing, and I know she wants to get everything right. I like the idea of two versions of the album, but there should be like 14 songs on each and a deluxe version should have them all. Good luck, your the best!

  86. incognegro September 12, 2010

    This is a blessing in disguise, at least for Kelly – her fans on the other hand, we’ll see just how dedicated they are, and I am hoping that they are because she deserves the support.

    On a different note, this should not come as a surprise considering how the album has developed over the past couple of months:

    1.) It went from the album being a more international dance-oriented album, and now correct me if I am wrong, she is now considering releasing two totally different albums – one dance and the other more R&B.
    2.) She has not decided a title to the album (clearly, because she has fully decided what the direction of her R & B will be; however, I am sure that the album she plans to release in the UK is done)
    3.) She has began to enlist more famed-producers for her album, namely The Dream, Tricky Stewart, and Jermaine Dupri.
    4.) She has changed her image (new haircut), and has began to make more appearances stateside.

    Honestly, I am happy for Kelly, and I am looking forward to a thoughtful and purposeful album – which unfortunately was not the case in her last two attempts (Simply Deep and Ms. Kelly), both of which were poorly managed and promoted by a management team with alterior motives of sabotage (my opinion); but in the meantime, I would suggest that she continues to support the dance album as the UK has supported her when other’s haven’t, and I am sure that she will see success with this album. I would also encourage her team to relax before they release records, because I think that lately they have become over-anxious, and have decided to release or have her perform songs that they just recorded (i.e. Forever and a Day and I’m that Chick) which can dilute the fanfare for the album, and also confuse the audience. So, if I had my way (which is not reality lol), she would continue full steam ahead with the dance album with all the promotion and performances, and occasionally visit stateside (well at least almost as frequently as she visits now) as she records and completes her U.S album. Once her R&B album is complete she can promote in the US, because although it will be record-breaking to have two successful albums released at once, there is not enough pieces of a Kelly-pie to satisfy what is needed for two-albums. All in all, I’m sure that we will all be satisfied with the results. Team Kelly 🙂

  87. JT September 12, 2010

    I agree with TRUE DIVA. Kelly will get “losted” in the dust. *cough*

  88. JT September 12, 2010

    Also, KEVIN, thank you for such an in-depth tutorial on how to make it in the music business. If only every artist had the sense to follow your unique and incredible ideas. I mean, why aren’t they? All they have to do is listen to you and they’ll be an instant success. EVERYONE could be an instant success! Why you’re not running every major label in America is simply beyond me.

  89. Kevin September 12, 2010

    lolz @JT

    your forgetting how much of an opprotunity Kelly has had….she was a member of the most successful girls group in history. that puts her a step above many.

    of course thats an optomistic plan, but Kelly has no room for error. i expect the best from her, because she has the potential

  90. XXOO September 12, 2010

    I was anticipating this album, after all this MESS…I could care less. Kelly can kiss her chances of being successful in the US goodbye

  91. Kyle September 12, 2010

    I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! Once they pushed the album to November 2nd I knew that it was a no-go for this year. I think it’s a smart move because her album would easily get lost in the shuffle with the big 4th quarter releases. If anything, they should’ve pushed “Commander” more in the states and released it as planned in September. What a shame.

  92. GROW UP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! September 12, 2010

    Come on Kelly. although I am not a fan of her music I am always happy when people succeed. I hope it happens for her soon.

  93. NICKY September 12, 2010

    KELLY , WTF

    NO ALBUM TITLE
    NO US SINGLE
    2011 PUSH BACK

    YOU’VE DISAPPOINTED YOUR FANS …….

    *WALKS OFF*

    WHEN IS BRANDY COMING OUT????? CANT WAIT FOR THAT ALBUM

  94. hip hop police September 12, 2010

    she needs to really get her fanbase growing and riding for her because thats the only way anyone else will believe in her. Maybe she should do a mixtape and jump on someones show. Prove herself.

  95. stan September 12, 2010

    i’ve been trying to support her, but this chick is going to flop again. no kidding.

  96. nana September 12, 2010

    oh kelendria……………….
    seriously
    shaking
    my
    head
    its time to hang it up and be on dancing with the stars/start hosting some random tv shows

  97. S*** September 12, 2010

    @ NICKY

    H**, just go crawl back in Rihanna’s Cooch where you belong.

    Atleast Kelly can sing & dance & put on some type of show.

    Poor Kelly, she should just move to the UK (if shes not already there) & start from scratch & just forget about the States all together… Her team is a Mess. Maybe dropping Mathew wasnt such a good idea afterall.

  98. TC September 12, 2010

    IM SORRY YALL BUT AM I THE ONLY 1 WHO THINKS KELLY LOOKS LIKE A F***** THUNDERCAT IN THIS PICTURE LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (CRYIN LAUGHIN)

  99. Angela Wesley September 12, 2010

    I am still rooting for Kelly but it is getting hard to do so. When she keeps delaying the
    album. Fantasia told everyone she was in the studio and a month later her album
    was released, and I hear song on the radio. I don’t Kelly team know what they are
    doing. It is like they are feeding off this competition that was on the boards about
    Kelly and Beyonce which is ashame. That is the first thing you learn in Marketing.
    (1) target your audience.
    (2) Test your product.
    (3) Evaluate and Review data.
    (4) Makes change and retest product.
    (5) Market and Promote product.
    That is all I have say about this subject.

  100. nana September 12, 2010

    @TC my thoughts exactly lol it doesnt help she got the damn cast of The Lion King on her arms. what is going on in that pic???!

  101. NICKY September 12, 2010

    @ S***

    Sorry boo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just saying!!!! lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay mad tho!

  102. Trucie September 12, 2010

    its a wrap. that damn album ain’t gon sell. this is what happened with the last album. PPl have been anticipating this album for a whole year and now she says its going to drop next year. it better be the bomb. I’ll just download it when it finally comes out. If it pleases my ear, then i’ll consider buying it.

  103. Diego September 12, 2010

    She is taking way too long, at the time she releases the album we probably might have millions of singles out ALREADY if not the whole album leaked -Bad Move!

  104. CELEBRITY September 12, 2010

    *Blank stare*

    I can’t with Ms Flopland. (insert Wendy Williams gif here)

  105. Celebrity September 12, 2010

    Motown Universal has absolutely ZERO confidence in Kelly’s ability to sell records, other wise they would’ve spare no expense by lining up A-list producers to work on the album. Kelly has no sense of direction and is on a desperate journey to find a producer that will giver her a record that appeals to everyone.

    Artists don’t normally release in the 1st quarter so if Kelly pushed her album back, then most likely we’re looking March-April release. Major labels try to get records out in the second quarter, and with the likes of Beyonce and other mainstream artists gearing to release albums, Kelly’s project is pretty much done with. PUT A F***** FORK IN IT.

  106. Rated X September 12, 2010

    damn, I feel bad for ol girl..
    push back after push back, I blame Bey Beys cheap lace fronts…

    nah on the real, I had high hopes for Kelly..Now we cant blame Bey Bey or her daddy anymore..

    push backs are never good,
    Donno about this one, Kellys people needs to get it together

  107. Rated X September 12, 2010

    umm, yes Kelly was on the most sucessfull group out there..but yall forget who the top bish was and still is, her name is Beyonce..common now give Kelly a break..its hard watching ur step sister get all the grammys, all the number 1 hot songs, while ur a** is trying to get a hit..

    as long as bey bey is still in the game, Michelle and Kelly aint never gonna be sucessfull in the U.S.A..

    mathew knowles is making sure of that…
    sorry stans, but thats the truth…

  108. joe sullivan September 12, 2010

    she should release a mixtape or something… and i think shes filmed four videos this “era”
    (maybe a video mixtape?)
    …her label must have a loot of faith
    …i really wanna see rose coloured glasses!

  109. Mary September 12, 2010

    O… M… G…

  110. That FLOP Juice September 12, 2010

    If it were CHRISTINA AGUILERA, That Grapa Juice would write awful things, that no one is interested in Christina, her carrier is over, she just don’t live in the reailty… etc.

    But no, it is Kelly Rowland, who never had real solo carrier, she was just a back-up singer for Beyoncé or David Guetta. Wake up! She has no karma for a solo carrier!

    This is an absolutely DOUBLE STANDARD blog.
    An awful and DISGUSTING FLOP BLOG.

  111. nana September 12, 2010

    Farrah Franklin is gonna have a damn album out before Kelly does! Kelly girl use your Thundercats power to get a release date on this ish.

  112. Phoenix September 12, 2010

    LMAO – Rihanna dropped (only girl in the world) and now kelly “who in interviews were so adament about her album coming out soon and releasing singles” wants to push her single back. Guess she is not ready to play in the big league. Honestly, Beyonce and Rihanna are the biggest in the game. And haters always throw shade sayin they dont like each other, but at the end of the day you know Jay wouldnt keep a girl B didnt like around plus put his money into her like a gamble. Rihanna once again decided to play Buffy and slay you b******. I AM DONE

  113. bobs September 12, 2010

    Look at you trying to put a spin on this failure. You call Rihanna’s 3 million albums sold, and 12 weeks on top of the HOT 100 this year ‘moderately successful’ – whereas miss Rowland had a minor hit with Commander only in Europe – nothing else.

    In the end, Sam – I’d say you’re part of the problem because you’re a bit of an asshole and you pimp her out so hard while crucifying Rihanna, Mariah, Christina, etc… People just associate all this negativity with poor Kelly. No one wants that look.

  114. Sanging September 12, 2010

    Will anyone care a year from now?? Exactly… yaaaawn.

  115. Diane September 12, 2010

    The album was off to a good start. I loved the Commander Remix, Shake Them Haters Off, and Grown Woman. Grown Woman was a hit in the making, but Kelly refused to acknowledge the single. Instead choosing to cater to her pop/international audience, who did not support Rose Colored Glasses or Commander very well.

    I knew the album was in trouble when Kelly kept going around town making these mindless radio interviews. The radio interviews were sometimes over 10 minutes long. Her unnecessary chatter about everything but the album. If you are going to interview on the radio more than 3 minutes, then the DJ should be playing a sample of each of your songs while you describe its meaning. Instead, Kelly wanted to talk about DC and Bey, even against her fans wishes.

    Speaking of fans, Kelly is always misleading her fans and she ignores what her fans want. For example, most of her fans, especially myself, wanted Kelly to stop talking about Bey and DC during her radio interviews so that we can support her as a single artist. Kelly kept ignoring our pleas.

    Kelly misled us to believe that the Commander video would be different upon release, and it was the same video with a cleaner edit. Kelly told us that she was shooting the video for Grown Woman, and that video has yet to surface. We saw video shoots for RCG, so I guess that video will surface soon. Kelly made us believe that we would be a part of the album title, and yet she has not named the winner. She doesn’t put her fans as priority, because if she did, we would have had a video for Grown Woman and a new video for Commander.

  116. Jeff September 12, 2010

    Shes Gonna have a Christina Moment,
    Shes been taking her sweet ass time, Then when she finally releases it,
    No one will give a f*** about it.
    2011 will see gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, kanye nicki, drake slaying ,
    I dont see No room for Kelly.

    She needs to Give Up.

    NEXT…………………………..

  117. kOOdzi September 12, 2010

    Thing is..I’ve been holding on too long with this chick. Since the Simply Deep days.

    I’m over it and over her.

    Done. Next.

  118. Yellow Gorilah September 12, 2010

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    I CANNOT!!

    Really Next year!

    Does she really think she can compete with BEYONCE! Girl GOOD BYE!

  119. Yellow Gorilah September 12, 2010

    Beyonce, Rihanna, Gaga, Nicki GIRLLLL BOOM! who she kidding she is DONE?

    Her and Ciara need to STEP their cookies UP!

  120. raraskils September 12, 2010

    if she came out with an album in the states, right now, no one would give a damn.
    honestly, she needs to wait until Kelly Rowland’s name is on the tip of everybody’s tongue. and thats only happening once she has a COUPLE radio hits!

    i say….bring out the payola methods, hehe. it seems to be working quite well for her former bandmate. 🙂

  121. HOTEP September 12, 2010

    How are we gonna hate on Kelly? is it her fault that radio wasnt playing her music in the U.S.? And for that whole “NO PROMO” rant give me a break! No one played her music on radio so why would anyone want to do any promo for a song that is barely cutting it on radio :S … I love Kelly and as much as it pains me to say the only way she is going to see success this time round is if she comes HARD! with something no-ones ever heard before! Or jump on the bandwagon of popular music today! In a way I’m glad she’s gone back to the studio to finish it off coos she needs to bring it! It’s now or never Kelsz, no matter I’ll support you!!

  122. yo September 12, 2010

    Ahh Kelly Rowland.. why release singles when the album isn’t even finished? That’s just not a smart move… waste of hype-time and money #fullstop! The false starts in this project basically show how confused Kelly is about managing her own career and her own push forward – i’m not a hater but atleast in DC she had a team of people who knew what was right and what worked. It just feels like she’s lost out at sea by herself.. she needs to go sit beyonce down and ask her for some tracks or something, ‘cus what she’s doing right now isn’t working…

  123. dboy September 12, 2010

    i like what jamie said, some of the haters here weren’t gonna buy kelly’s album eitherways so ur damn opinion dont count, the indifferent wider american public will hear more of kelly when she starts promoting ……next year

  124. That FLOP Juice September 12, 2010

    Most expensive FLOP in the history of the music industry ever is on the way…

  125. D-MONEY September 12, 2010

    yall r too funny…..as much as im waiting for her album to be released….i would wait…..because i rather her put her best efforts rather than a rushed album….

  126. Nicki Minaj September 12, 2010

    Oh please !! In any situation she’ll FLOP cuz’ she’s a HOT ASS MESS !! She wanna do anything to be successful instead of staying faithful to her FANS !! It’s a wrap !! At least, even if Brandy flopped, she stayed real and true to her fans contrary to some other wack ass lace fronts lovers!!

  127. NO NO NO NO NO KELLY NOWLAND September 12, 2010

    poor thang. she just doesn’t get it. she don’t need hit making producers or new edgy photoshoots or new lacefronts or more best fkn friends to pose with & have dinner with…she needs self esteem & a personality. i actually don’t hate kelly – i hate the fact that she is so damn clueless about her appeal. ppl wanted her to succeed out of beyonce’s shadow but when she gets her solo opportunities she just fails…she is meant to be a back-up singer and i for one am ok with that. KELLY FIND SOMEBODY’S SHADOW TO SIT YOUR ASS UNDER. that will be all.

  128. Diane September 12, 2010

    Kelly is probably more interested in being a judge on America X-Factor than being a solo superstar. That way, she can still surround herself in a group of three, where she obviously feels more comfortable. With that aside, Kelly owes it to her fans to come out with a formal statement regarding the album cancellation, due to the fact that she dropped so many singles, radio interviews, listening parties, and international t.v. appearances, she got her fans amped for this album.

    Kelly’s fans deserve an apology.

  129. ChocolateRowland September 12, 2010

    Kelly’s fansite Kelly-Rowland.net is taken down. Does anyone know about that?

  130. OB September 12, 2010

    Beyonce comes out and over shadows Kelly! Mark my words. Kelly I could neck chop you right now.

  131. LATAVIA LATOYA SHANIQUA September 12, 2010

    That Grape S***.

  132. UNIVERSAL FAIL!-TOWN September 12, 2010

    FAIL FAIL FAIL!!!!!

    Kelly deserves better.

  133. Miss Virgo September 12, 2010

    Well thats unfortunate.

  134. Gilberto September 12, 2010

    ChocolateRowland,
    They lost its domain, ’cause they don’t have money to pay it. I ain’t kidding.

  135. jk-yo September 12, 2010

    I THINK THAT SHE SHOULD PUT THE UK VERSION OUT IN NOVEMBER AND THE US VERSION NEXT YEAR.

  136. RF September 12, 2010

    I believe Mariah Carey said it best, “It’s A Wrap”. This many pushbacks has never proven well for any artist. Thanks for playing, Kelly.

  137. TEAM KELLY (ROWLAND) September 13, 2010

    Man… I’m not sure about this one…. But you better believe I’m buying ten copies day one! LOL!

  138. Muni September 13, 2010

    I am very sad right now, but I believe is the best so she can change the direction of the album, cos now anyone wants to do dance music. And for those that are saying that Beyonce is coming out, so what, she is no longer a threat, they are not in the same management or same label, so… and she is no longer that chick anymore, The new chick is KELLY ROWLAND as she sings so.. get over it OK!!!

    Also the label needs this time to get KELLY’s name out as much as they can before the album in even out…..

    GOOD LUCK KELLY and sometimes you guys that call yourselves fans forget that she is onl human. LOVE YOU KELLY!!!!!

  139. yllisREDBONECHICK22 September 13, 2010

    it’s amazing how people say they aint interested , they dont like her, she’s a flop n still they keep reading everythin abt her n take time to post messages. seriously do u rele think she cares whether u support her or beyonce or rihana realease 10 000 albums next year??? she dont and she said it in interviews. the reason she makes music is because she loves it, and there r people who love her. while u spendin your time writin abt her life, she’s breathin some fresh air in london or paris or berlin, come on wake up, get a life.kelly i love u, release ur album whenever u want, no need to rush, we only got one life, no need to stress n feel like u have an obligation to release albums every years or every seconds. just do as u feel, i love ur voice n things aint been easy for u for so long, now that u breathin n stronger some haters wanna bring u down…by the way i loved ur pics at the new york fashion week, always classy, dark chocolate barbie 🙂
