Rowland Re-Schedules ‘International’ Album To 2011

Published: Friday 15th Oct 2010 by Sam

In what comes as little surprise, Kelly Rowland has also now delayed the release of the International incarnation of her third studio album to next year.

It has been previously confirmed that, though pushed back to 2011 in the US, the worldwide version of the LP would still hit stores on November 29th. Not anymore.

Fully story after the jump…

The latest twist in the tale that is Rowland’s 3rd album, came courtesy of the 29 year herself during a Ustream session with fans last night (October 14th).

A humbled Rowland thanked her supporters for their patience, vowing to make sure that the wait was worth it when the album is eventually released.

It was not immediately clear if the two-version concept will remain, or whether one definitive album will be hitting all markets upon release. What is palpable, though, is the fact that Kelly and her team went back to the drawing board at some point over the last few months. Which does beg the question; what will become of the Urban-Dance tracks which made up the first version of the album? By that I mean the likes of ‘On & On’, ‘Each Other’, ‘Forever & A Day’ etc?

————————————-

I’ve said many a time, but the ‘back to scratch’ approach with the album has both negative and positive potential. On the one hand, the buzz – in comparison to when ‘Commander’ debuted – is dimming. After all, the million dates, directions, and versions, provided has only served to confuse her potential buying audience.

That said, Kelly cultivating a new look (*very important in today’s day and age*), as well as collaborating with A-list hitmakers such as Darkchild, Tricky Stewart, The-Dream, and Jermaine Dupri during this re-grouping phase, may very well spawn the hit that will carry the project forward.

It’s very much a waiting game; one which will be interesting to see how plays out.

Randomness: Kelly revealed during the chat that one of the two names she is considering for the album is ‘Kelebrate’ as suggested by a fan. “Celebrate” spelt with a ‘K’. Hmm…

Your thoughts?

  4. OLW October 15, 2010

    and I’m pissed because Beyonce will be out before Kelly and then again she will be on the shadow… that is a mess they never find a way to promote her and I don’t really understand why because she got many hits internationnaly so it means that she can do something great… so why… why… at least promote a lot of singles (but with real promotion) during the wait…
    we’ll see but once again I’ll be sad if she doesn’t have the light she deserves… she was way better by herself… since she signed a deal… everything was a mess… 🙁

  5. movieman October 15, 2010

    lol poor her every black female will be overshadowed by beyonce next year, and the black eyed peas and lady gaga will also be dominating the charts next year poor kellly

  6. veebz October 15, 2010

  7. King David October 15, 2010

    SMGDH WTH Kelly I was all with you in the beginning because i felt alot times you were overlooked in DC and I felt like you had two strong albums and was counting on the 3rd to be just as strong but all these push backs, urbans version, uk versions are making me sick and I am soooooo over it! Now Beyonce’ gon come flood the market again and then all your remaining fans gon say she did you wrong! No you played yourself!

  9. Beyoncepussykeeper October 15, 2010

    Yall wack asss beyonce stans up early.. Go figure. Kelly is and will be fine. Even if she does run into the time that beyonce comes out I just think she needs to stand her ground and remain the artist she is. Don’t clam up cause beyonce is coming I actually think some friendly competition of the albums would be cool. Hehehehe. Sip on that beyonce stans. I think kelly is beyonce biggest threat in todays dry industry I used to say Ciara was but I knw kelly is I’m dat chick performance on youtube proves kelly has what it takes to compete with a beyonce. With a team a vision and correct sound mics like beyonce lol! She is in it to win it. Just take yalls heads out Beyonce’s already stretched p****. Pow!

  10. movieman October 15, 2010

    honey beyonce her last album sold 7 million and she sold nearly 20 million singles

    and she had a 100 million + grossing tour

    how much did kelly her last album sell and how much did kelly her last tour gross
    o oke

    ya girl is done

  11. Muni October 15, 2010

    Be patient she knows what she is doing, as long as she still releasing singles and charting that is most important. True KELLY fans will be by her side no matter what so. GO KELLY bring that FIRE back.

  12. J October 15, 2010

    Don’t care anymore about the failure thats called Miss.Rowland.

  13. Trina October 15, 2010

    Here we go, here we go again […]!! Miss Smelly Flopland is NOTHING BUT A HOT ASS WANNABE FIERCE MESS, as well as her project !! B**** IT’S A WRAP FOR YOU SO PLEASE GO AWAY WITH YOUR FLOP ASS SINGLES AND ALBUMS !! B**** YOU GOT NO PERSONALITY AT ALL !! WORLDWIDE FLOP !!! NEEEEEEXT

  14. aries_BLU October 15, 2010

    This makes no sense to release singles and music videos when your album, according to you and you and your people, is not even close to being finished. Why even put anything out when you have nothing done? That’s like serving bread at dinner and giving us the utensils, but saying that the water, main course, and dessert will be served at a later date. Why give us the bread when the chicken and potatoes are not even in the oven? Makes no sense to me, and does not make me excited at all for whatever material she plans to push out. It is October 2010. Will her stuff be out this time next year, with seven more videos out before the album?

  15. aries_BLU October 15, 2010

    I have no confidence in this girl, and that is what she needs especially at this critical time in her career. She should have been on the hush hush if her stuff is not finished, or close to being done. Instead of making those music videos, she should have been in the studio. Now that she is in the studio making new songs with more producers, it seems as if there is no guarantee that the songs she made videos for will even be on the album that she has no title for. So it was all a waste of time, effort, and money.

  16. KELENDRIA ROWLAND October 15, 2010

    The QUEEN Ms Kelly pushed back!!!!!

    WATCH BeyAWNCe push back to because shes afraid of Ms Kelendria!!! HAHAAHAHAHAHHHAHA!

  26. royalkev October 15, 2010

    LOST is the only word that describes Kelly and her team’s effort for this era to be successful. I’ve never seen songs released 8 – 12 months before an album drops. I’ve never seen an artist lead with several dance tracks for an pop/r&b album. I’ve never heard of an artist promising all this new excitement with a forth coming album that showcases her new image and new style in music genre to then later find them recruit top producers to fit in with today’s generic sound on the Hot 100 airplay and urban radio charts. I have never seen an artist promise 2 completely different albums (1 for in the states and another internationally)… to later release the same album in both regions that are the complete opposite of what she was building on and developing as an artist everywhere(give this 2weeks, I’m sure it’ll be the outcome). It’s also typical of Kelly to rely on her fans to name the album for her (that I already believe was named prior to considering “Kelebrate”). Kelly lacks confidence and displays nothing but uncertainty with this project and her music. She has 0 follow through and she appears to be inspired by Rihanna’s fashion sense(where’s the hair Kelly???). I just think that Kelly should look at her options as an actress on the small screen; consider a sitcom Kelly!

  27. queenbeyonce10 October 15, 2010

    I’m going to be honest.

    Not interested in this project (yawns)

    People lets not be delusional here, Kelly isn’t Bey’s biggest competition, it’s Rihanna.

    Anyways I was over Kelly about 3 months ago, I’m just fed up of waiting, her buzz is gone. *waits patiently for Beyonce’s new album*

  32. mike October 15, 2010

    YEAH I SPOKE WITH BEYONCE THIS MORNING…

    And we believe that we’ve given Kelly enough time to have finished an album and be on the third single by now and that she would be on some mini tour with some other artists when B was getting ready to release.

    Beyonce told me that she doenst care anymore what the Kelly stans have to say because anything she does will be seen as her trying to take Kellys shine.

    We then agreed that there is no “shine” to take and that the time has come for teh return of the queen b****.

    We also decided that we will give her until January next at which point we will wait no longer.

    NEW BEYONCE JANUARY 2011!!!!!!!!!

  37. GREG October 15, 2010

    Yea the Beyonce fans are starting to sound like complete nutcases with some of these posts. I cant see me fighting and using all my energy to argue about a celebrity like that. Im sure Kelly and Beyonce are on the phone somewhere sipping champagne and laughing at how ridiculous you all are.

  38. Beysbetter October 15, 2010

    FORGET ITTTTTTTTTTTT!!! KELLY JUST FORGET ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!! ITS BEEN OVER FOR YOU FOR YEARSSSSSSS

  39. MrIncredible October 15, 2010

    She needs to just give up. Nobody cares anymore… like seriously!!! And that album title is just retarded… what is she thinking?

  40. o em gee October 15, 2010

    sit down kelly and watch B show u how it’s done

  41. Richard October 15, 2010

    Fans and Kelly can blame the label all they want, but her music is mediocre. Out of all the songs we’ve heard, only 1 or 2 have been fire. She just doesn’t get the best material and when she does, she doesn’t know what to do with it.

    I honestly think Kelly should just quit trying to be a US artist, make UK dance music and have a career there. The U.S. isn’t checking for her anymore. LeToya who has had substantial R&B hits has a hard enough time; what makes Kelly stans think that she’s going to do any better?

  42. kptwits October 15, 2010

    I’m a big kelly stan … but she’s an idiot

    The whole world regards her as Beyonce’s back up singer … does she think they are going to wait forever?

  43. SWAG-WAVE October 15, 2010

    Will you guys get over thinking that it was always Mathew Knowles who messed up her career or that Beyonce always prevents her from having a hit album. The only person who is stopping Kelly from success is Kelly. Although I love some of the songs put out from this “album” so far, Kelly is really nothing to jump up and down about. Sorry to say it, but Kelly will most likely never jump off in the music industry by herself. Kelly could have the best produced song with the best producers in the world, and still not be a huge success solo wise. Kelly just doesn’t have the X-Factor as a solo artist, I wish her and her team would realize this and just move on. Mathew knew this, but still supported her efforts. Put out the album, and get whatever money they can from it and move on.

  44. SWAG-WAVE October 15, 2010

    Watch Kelly stans go crazy over this post… (waits to get hit over the head with a bottle). But its the truth. I as well have artists who I like and think who should get way more shine than they currently get, but they don’t. It is what it is. Not every artist is going to be able to get in the door. Look at Kat Deluna, I love her but she doesn’t get any type of recognition.

  45. Muni October 15, 2010

    Kelly doesn’t need to be scared of anything from what hear so far this year this would be the best album of 2010, Please KELLY release the album, Even because I have already pre-order 3 copies in HMV UK, COME on now!!!

    I see why Kelly’s albums don’t sell. Has she even released a video for any of her music. I think she could have went somewhere with Grown A$$ Woman. She need to stop taking pictures and start making, selling, and promoting music if she expects to sell some albums.

  48. Alex Grey October 15, 2010

  52. the kiddz October 15, 2010

    Agree wtih @ROYALKEV. Kelly needs to get her act together. Who releases videos/singles when their album is no where near complete? It’s not even titled! *waits for Team Weezy to go in*

    And LOL @ Sam trying to make it sound better “Re-Schedules”. If this was Christina or Rihanna you would show no mercy.

  53. Kevin October 15, 2010

    i am NOT….Sasha Fierce

  54. remmy October 15, 2010

    Wow…ust the other day I was thinking that she released her album and no one cared…I couldn’t remember…this is a mess…like I said, it was never Mathew or Beys fault…she is not on there label and still no shine…and like other above me said, soon bey is gonna come out with music an then it will be “Blame It On Beyonce” time…uhh (don’t know what eles to say, that hasn”t been sai already)

    @royalkev
    100% co-sign plus more…

  55. stopTheGames October 15, 2010

    @ spring
    Is that you kelly. Stop playin on the internet and get your flop of a album together. Can’t blame matt now can you?

  56. NikkiIsChillin October 15, 2010

    Awwh, thats too bad. Hope it works out for Kelly cause her buzz is starting to get negative…Well, I’ll just wait and see.

  57. WorldWideWaddie.com October 15, 2010

    The buzz left months ago on Kelendria. Sorry!

  58. credits October 15, 2010

    okay, with commander, grown woman, forever and a day, and rose coloured glasses, this album should have been out already. it should have been released, the die hard fans would have bought it and if she was worried about money, she should rely solely on the success (or the lack there of) of her singles. i love her though!

  59. Robier October 15, 2010

    AT THIS POINT I COULD GIVE A GOOD G*DAMN….. THIS IS REALLY STUPID!!!!

  60. James October 15, 2010

  64. ~Team Weezy~ October 15, 2010

    LMAO @TheKiddz! You actually said exactly what I wanted to say about Sam. If this was Rihanna or Xtina, that ball-less idiot would have all types of shade thrown at them. But since it’s Kelly he’s so ‘optimistic’. PUH-LEASE!

    You know what, I’m too tired to even comment on this fuckery that is Kelly Rowland’s album!

    R.I.P Kelly’s solo career

  65. o em gee October 16, 2010

    ahhh i’m a kelly rowland fan but seriously… why… next year? now seriously…??!?!!

  66. Frank Bruno October 16, 2010

    Album flopped before it even came out

  67. Renee October 16, 2010

    I am a die hard Kelly fan. Loved all of the singles, except for Forever and a Day. The songs and snippets I have heard – Commander, Grown Woman, On and On, Just Whisper, Rose Colored Glasses, and Shake Them Haters Off were good in my opinion. Kelly actually, had a great album on her hands, IF SHE GAVE IT CHANCE!!! But the constant push backs, switching singles for releases, uncertainty about the album’s title and so on and so forth is just redundant now. You don’t always need a number 1 single to have a hit album. Albums have sold very well without reaching number 1 on the US Billboard Charts. And quite frankly, music release here in America right now is borderline crap with a some tolerable music in between. And I am an American saying this. Kelly actually has a great chance at being a very successful international artist outside of close-minded America. But for some insane reason, she is hellbent on trying to break domestic ground. Sighs. I’m just tired of this woman and her obvious lack of confidence in her own artistic work. She keeps going this route and not many people will give a damn about her album, if it ever sees the light of day.

  68. Angela Wesley October 17, 2010

    I don’t l like the name Kelebrate either, I know that Kelly and her team could have chosen a better name than that. Kelly need to get more involved in the project. Nicki Mimaj
    is two or three steps ahead of Kelly because she has release a video and album
    cover. Like one poster said Kelly would have a good album with the song he list.
    I want Kelly to do well and I hope she surprise everyone with this album

  69. Diane October 17, 2010

    What about all those empty, mindless radio interviews? Wasting the radio station’s times. Exhausting your fans with excitement and continual disappointment. I can never digest how you played Grown Woman. It’s as if you were afraid of success and a #1 record. I think your heart belongs to a girl group and girlfriends. You ain’t ready to be on your own.

  70. Avysavy October 17, 2010

    @kicktheeardrum
    Ciara has a release date, December 14.

    See that’s the thing about pushbacks that labels fail to realize, it KILLS all interests in the album. I wish Kelly the best of luck!

  71. Trinidad January 17, 2011

    I have to hear exactly what Kris will say about this?
