New Song: Kelly Rowland – ‘Make Believe’ (Unreleased)

Published: Friday 22nd Jul 2011 by Sam

With Kelly Rowland‘s third studio album ‘Here I Am’ but a few days away from release (July 25th), an unreleased cut from the LP’s recording sessions has surfaced in the form of the Soundz produced ‘Make Believe’.

Take a listen the stirring cut after the jump. Do you think the song, which didn’t make the final cut, should have?

    Damn that’s a nice track. Her vocals have this pure quality to them. The harmonies were nice toward the end. The track itself is nice too, the guitar solo was nice too. Wouldn’t have hurt the record at all if it were included. A Bonus track possibly.

    Wait Im TOO Excited this didnt make the album.

  7. Keepin it 100 July 22, 2011

    Kelly album sounds so bad.. it took her a whole yr and a half to make that album.. with that much time she should have done better.. y is everyone settling for kellys album.. ppl have no standard with her.. there just happy she is out with a album.. she needs to let some of the old destinys child producer do her album .. if u dnt believe me go to amazon to snippet the album.

    There is another release I am excited about.. Mya K.I.S.S album
    Can take Beyonce 4 off replay..

    this totally should’ve made the album tracklisting- its a perfect merge of kelly’s urban roots with a dope combination of international dance production elements. this is the perfect fit for kelly, love love love this sam! thanks for posting.

    The song was O.K. Nothing to write home about, although I do remember Soundz raving about it like it was going to be Kelly’s break-through hit (NOT!!). I think it would have better suited Brandy. Every thing from the songs dismal tone to the background harmonies. It had Brandy’s name written all over it. But, Kelly does seem to be channeling her brown- skinned BFF in the studio these days (just wait for my Here I Am review), so it does not surprise me that she gravitated toward this song. I am glad though that it did not make the album. It’s not a feel good record, and Here I Am is DEFINATELY a feel good album. DEFINATELY!!!

    Roll on JULY 26!!!

    @justme,u ar very stupid and useless as need to get a life rather than hatin someone that doesnt know you ar haters are all stupid.i love this track.cant wait to get my copy of here i am.queen kelly rowland 4eva.f*** haters

  18. Thedimplepuppet July 22, 2011

    Sam are you ok? “U” know damn well her album drops the 26th #SHADE

  19. A July 22, 2011

    many harmonies remind Brandy, definetly.

    Maybe she recorded the demo and Kelly ended with the track.

  20. Thedimplepuppet July 22, 2011

    ‘Make Believe’ sounds great and should have replace ‘Heaven and Earth’

  21. Thedimplepuppet July 22, 2011

    I love when her harmonies ride a track example ‘Better Without You’ ‘Each Other’

  22. brockaLOVE July 22, 2011

    @ A : thank you ! so true…that’s so brandy!!

  23. aisha aguilera keys July 22, 2011

    It’s ok.

  24. JR July 22, 2011

    Its a nice track. It def does not flow with the album though. It also reminded me of Brandy a whole lot! But they are friends so who knows what inspiration was behind this. And to the @itsjustme to say her album is whack def needs to listen again. Even if you not a fan, you know that album is not whack. But if thats your honest opinion then hey my bad. To each its own!

  25. Myrl22 July 22, 2011

    Make beleive

  26. JAYLA July 22, 2011

    This could have easily replaced “Each Other”

  27. Chillin July 22, 2011

    HOT song! smooth as HELL!!.Kellz vocalz are slammin..but i love the album the way it is now

  28. KTR July 22, 2011

    I LOVE IT!!!!! SO Y TYPE OF MUSIC… xxxxx

  29. BRANDY STAR* July 22, 2011

    this has brandy all over it…BRAAAANNNNDYYYY all over.. Im sure brandy must have written this..harmonies.. theres even a bit in there that sounds like afrodisiac… all of these things make me like the songs.. the fact that brandy was behind this one.-when I saw make beleive I thought it was the make beleive that brandy was cookin up wid kadis and sean.. no shade to kelly im sure the album is worth the anitipation it deserves..but when u hear too strong an influence from another artist..hmmmm

  30. TheGuyWhoNeverPostsAnything July 22, 2011

    just ordered my 2. I want the add’l songs from the Deluxe…but prefer the artwork for the original.

  31. BrandyNMonicaStan July 22, 2011

    I like Kelly’s album from the snippets I heard it is a solid album. She channels Bran alot because some of her earlier work like “Better Without You” clearly shows the Brandy influence. Brandy is the Vocal Bible so I am not suprised.

  32. Kellymotivation July 22, 2011

    It’s okay

  33. 100% Real July 23, 2011

    Some people keep saying that Kelly needs to go there with her vocals. But, everyone’s singing style is not about riffing, yelling and screaming. If every female singer sung that way, then people would be saying that their all trying to sing like one another. Everyone has their own style, and just because Kelly chooses to sing the way that she sings, doesn’t make her any less of an artist then let’s say Christina Aguilera for example. I personally like this song and wish it was included on the album. I will be purchasing “Here I Am” on the 26th!

  34. drew July 23, 2011

    im pretty sure this song was song by brandy in her reality show lol, which is way it screams brandy all over it

  35. rob July 23, 2011

    as soon as i saw the title i knew it was the brandy track from a family business

  36. suys July 23, 2011

    Nothing special. The echo songs like Akon’s ” Sorry, Blame It on Me” . Some section song like she is talking, especial the chorus. The harmony and guitar solo is really good and I so love the end. It sounds unfinished.

  37. KV July 23, 2011

    sounds like a brandy song
