  19. BEYONCE My Chick March 31, 2011

    This single will be overshadowed by Beyonce and Jay Z’s anniversary.

    The stans will get mad and say Beyonce got married on April 4th on purpose to take all the shine from Kelly.

  20. Who’s Cedric? March 31, 2011

    @Beyonce My Chick
    The f****** shade! LOL! Dead at the single being overshadowed by an anniversary!

  21. DC Thats Me March 31, 2011

    What’s the point of releasing singles (That I NEVER hear on the radio) without an album to promote?

  22. E11 March 31, 2011

    smdh at kelly still set on releasing this wack single and yet another flop. #iCANT

  23. Dave March 31, 2011

    GET IT KELLY!

  24. Sidney Aubry Harper March 31, 2011

    her song isn’t a flop if it got to #55 on billboard charts and still going to rise with this music video and she will be starting album promotion so just you wait haters staying hating why do you always comment if you don’t like her songs you must like her if you steady comment before any of her true fans

  25. Trina March 31, 2011

    B****, GO BACK TO THE SHORT HAIR !! Anyway, love the song !!

  26. Yellow Gorillah March 31, 2011

  29. Harvey April 1, 2011

    S*** She readying her promo tour album is slatedzfor a August/September release recently said in her new magazine interview.

  30. Angela Wesley April 1, 2011

    I don’t about anybody else but I think this is her album cover. Because every other time
    she released a singles their was never a cover for her other singles. The nulk head
    who said she looks like is crazy.Kelly looks a thousand times better than Sloange
    not that she is not a pretty because she is. I don’t kelly’s team is going to make
    that mistake again by just releasing singles but no album. They are trying strike
    while the fire is hot and fans are still intersted in her.

  31. quanberg April 1, 2011

    I’m not scared at all Beyonce who ???? Kelly bring it girl show then wat ur made of !!!! She knows wats she’s doing she gonna show who the real child of destiny is

  32. GREG April 1, 2011

    I love the long hair better……short hair is not epic…..good choice going back to the long hair

  33. Robier April 1, 2011

    Good for her. Damn Kelly April 12th?

  34. princebarbietv April 1, 2011

  35. I’madiva April 1, 2011

    Go Kelly!!! I’m so excited for April 4th! I am sooo…. anxious to see the video and her on 106 & Park! Yaaayyyy!!!! I pray this video isn’t low budget!

  36. Jamie April 1, 2011

    @BEYONCE My Chick

    That god-forsaken anniversary didn’t cause any buzz the last two years so if won’t this year. Grow up–you and the rest of the haters. You can tell the kind of parents ya’ll have by the posts ya’ll make. It’s a disgrace, and the way ya’ll praise other artists only deepens ya’ll place in hell. I’m a Kelly Rowland fan, but she’s no idol of mine because I recognize who made her–GOD above. If I were ya’ll, I’d be really careful…

  37. Timago April 1, 2011

    SMELLY FLOPLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. marqmeone April 1, 2011

    Tell that monkey to pick up that bottom lip…

  39. dakkylove April 1, 2011

    love the album cover its hot….motivation is getting fantastic radio airplay all over, cant wait for the video to drop.

  40. magic April 1, 2011

  41. Muni April 1, 2011

    I can see more haters here than fans. OK Let’s go

    1. KELLY f****** ROWLAND ia about to take OVER get over it!!!!!
    2. The art looks f****** AMAZING
    3. The song is already charting with no promo or commercial release yet
    4. People will fall in love with KELLY ROWLAND all over again

    Beyonce has the most annoying fans EVER. You guys need to wake up OK her career is falling apart and KELLY f****** ROWLAND will be last artist to worry about this chick.

    Turn your TV’s on 4TH APRIL 2011 and watch 106 & PARK will the the date to remember!! BECAUSE other chicks careers will put to sleep for a long time!!!

  42. Sense April 1, 2011

    YES KELLLY!!!Serving Life @ whoever is saying they are not playing this song on the radio…you must live under a rock or just plain hating…Haters do your job

  43. Harvey April 1, 2011

    @Muni,she’s right motivation is the s*** wait till it hits iTunes people still praise Kelly.

  44. DMAC143 April 1, 2011

    The hotness! I love what Kelly’s doing! I can’t wait for the video…I’m excited about this project all over again!

    I wish her loads of success!!!!!!

  45. MIAMI DRUG LORD April 1, 2011

    Im not going to bad mouth anyone I just dislike how some people are trying to ignore the fact that this single is doing better in the US than Rose colored glasses, grown woman and even the song with nelly WITH NO PROMOTION!!!! and it was getting radio play off a leak! it was a leak it wasn’t even released yet when the radios started playing it, after a while people just have to give her credit for something congratulate her for this success after all the bad things people have said and everyone doubting this as a first single choice when this is doing better than all the previous records prior to it and those records were some really good singles be happy for her why would you sit back and pray on someones down fall who raised you people?

  46. QueenBey April 1, 2011

    I don’t like it, It looks cheap! This is the f****** lead single! It needs to be more epic. She is not serving face, So no I don’t like it. Kelly will never be at the level the Queen is. I don’t want Kelly to flop though…

  47. Jamie April 1, 2011

    ^^^^^
    Typical Bee fan.SMH!!!! People like the artist, but more hate you guys, and pretty soon that’s going to start, if not already, affecting the artist. Ya’ll need to chill. That goes for any fan of an artist, be a FAN–meaning, tend to your artist, and not try an discredit another. If you’ll spend more time supporting YOUR artist, you wouldn’t have time to throw shade at someone else.

  48. CURLY SUE April 1, 2011

    YESSSSSSSSSS MAYBE KELLY STANDS A CHANCE SINCE MATTHEW IS NO LONGER MANAGING BEYONCE. HE PROBABLY DOESN’T CARE TO SABOTAGE HER ANYMORE. GO KELLY! I LOVE THE SONG!

    Just because u don’t like an artist don’t mean they flopped…f***** retards

  52. E11 April 1, 2011

    @lawayne

    ROSE COLOURED GLASSES, GROWN ASS WOMAN, HER CAREER POST DC3

  53. i’m a billy goat & wendy is still a damn man April 1, 2011

    I heard this song this morning. It’s actually quite good!

  54. QueenBey April 1, 2011

    @Jamie I’m not the typical Beyonce fan. I like RIhanna, Gaga, and Britney Spears. I just don’t see it for kelly. She has been out for so long now, and has not made her mark as a solo artist. So I just don’t see it happening at this point. She’s up in age now so there’s little room for her to develop a strong loyal stan-base. I’m not a hater just a realist. I do hate Keri Hilson though!

  55. NikkiIsChillin April 1, 2011

    I like this cover. Kelly looks great!
