Kelly Rowland Announces ‘Keep It Between Us’ Video Release

Published: Saturday 21st Jan 2012 by Sam

Many moons have passed since Kelly Rowland and Lance Gross cosied up on the set of the video for ‘Keep It Between Us’. Indeed, so long has it been since the French shoot, many believed it wouldn’t see the light of day – especially when paired with news of Rowland recording her new album.

Fret not, though, for the ‘Motivation‘ singer has not only confirmed the video’s release window, she has also explained the  reason for the delay.

Details after the jump…

Speaking to OMKelly today, the 30 year old revealed that the clip will finally arrive next week.

Of the hold up, she cited technical and shipping complications in France; with all kinks now ironed out.

And while the sensual cut is lifted from her latest effort, ‘Here I Am’, it’s release (as a promotional track) hasn’t impacted the recording of its follow-up. Indeed, Rowland recently relocated to Los Angeles to amp up production on the as yet untitled project.

Pending meatier info on her 4th opus, get familiar with more from the ‘Keep It Between Us’ song and video below…

    YES FINALLY

  2. enrerwj January 21, 2012

    Wish her every success with it.
    Hope she tours the UK too

  3. Drake&CiaraFan January 21, 2012

    I’m excited for her, but I also feel bad. Its like her label only promotes her oversees. As far as songs that are on the album: Europe got four singles: top ten hits “Commander” and “Down For Whatever”, while “Forever and a Day” (which is on the UK album) reached the top fifty. “Lay It On Me” will be released as the fourt hsingle next month.

    But it seems like her label cant get it together in the US, Her album should have been promoted more, especially after “Motivation” reached the top twenty. Second single “Lay It On Me” was never performed or released to pop radio and it flopped. Hopefully her next album will have a brighter start and ending.

    Also, the real reason the video was pushed back is because “Keep It Between Us” was supposed to be the third US single, but its release was cancelled due to low album sales. (Here I Am is at like 180k). But Kelly still wanted fans to see it, so she’s premeiering it. Its like how Ciara’s “That’s Right” was cancelled after The Eveolution had fallen on US 200 before its planned release, but she still wanted fans to see the video

  4. GLYNNJE January 21, 2012

    YES YES AND YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
    CANT WAIT!!! ROLL ON NEXT WEEK.

  5. Quan January 21, 2012

    I agree with with Drake & Ciara fan said! At the end of the day the project should of been handled better!

  6. Alex Thomas January 21, 2012

    I can’t wait! She had technical issues with the video and that is why it took so long! Nevertheless now is better than never! ‘Keep It Between Us’ will slay Billboard R&B 😀

  7. dee January 21, 2012

    I totally agree with the comments above. Her project should have been promoted better especially after the success of Motivation. She had numerous potential hits. Nonetheless, her record company slept on promoting quickley the proper next single. I’m Dat Chick or Feelin Me Right Now would have given this cd legs.

  8. ChristinasCOMING January 21, 2012

    This song isn’t bad but it’s not good.

    I would’ve loved to see the ballad Heaven and Earth released instead.

  9. CURLY SUE January 21, 2012

    OH OK……….

  10. truciebedford January 21, 2012

    Dear lord I’m dying to see this. Its fav song of the entire album and thank god she’s finally releasing it!

  11. Alex Thomas January 21, 2012

    I’m very excited and ‘Here I Am’ has so far sold 215,000 copies in the US. After the video and official release of ‘Keep It Between Us’ will take charge next week, album sales should increase. ‘Here I Am’ already went from #62 to #40 last week.

    And after a sales boost from ‘Keep It Between Us’, the video for ‘Feelin’ Me Right Now’ is coming straight afterwards so another boost of sales for ‘Here I Am’.

    After the project finishes its run, ‘Here I Am’ will sell roughly 300-320,000 copies by the end of the year.

  12. UGh January 21, 2012

    Kelly is such a joke. how long ago did she start making this video?

  13. YOOSONDALOOSE January 21, 2012

    Yay, so excited, think it is going to be good.

  14. ChristinasCOMING January 21, 2012

    @ ALEX THOMAS-

    Where are you getting your facts from boo boo?

    Here I Am is no where on the Billboard 200 in the US and hasn’t even sold 200k in the US yet.

    I don’t believe KIBU will boost album sales. She should’ve released Heaven and Earth for the ballad and remixed I’m Dat Chick and released it in the US.

  15. Alex Thomas January 21, 2012

    @CHRISTINASCOMING Billboard already announced that ‘Here I Am’ was the 171st best selling album in the US in 2011 with 215,000 copies sold by the end of December, 2011.

    Wikipeadia’s 178,000 copies sold was last updated in October.

  16. Alex Thomas January 21, 2012

    @CHRISTINASCOMING On the R&B albums chart, she has moved up 22 spots and is currently at #40

  17. lyric commander lee January 21, 2012

    love the song – i love her hustle – keep making music and building that catalogue. WORK!

  18. ChristinasCOMING January 21, 2012

    @ ALEX THOMAS-

    I saw the R&B chart. I wasn’t going by what wikipedia said though. Do you have the link of where you got that other info from?

  19. Flashing Green January 21, 2012

    I like Kelly but the album is over didn’t even pass the 250k line with a massive hit
    I wish her the best

  20. arob January 21, 2012

    Today it seems like the way artist handle their material is just sloppy as far as release

  21. Alex Thomas January 21, 2012

    @CHRISTINASCOMING

    It”s not there now. It must have been a fortnight ago? She was at #62 but move to #40 🙂

  22. muni January 21, 2012

    so excited Ms Kelly I love you!!

  23. D-money January 21, 2012

    Even michelle had her s*** together when UNEXPECTED came out

  24. said so January 21, 2012

    @KRISTINASCOMING, I agree with you. Heaven and earth is such a good song and l real like Kelly’s voice on that song. She should have released that as a single and performed it everywhere because it sells her good voice. Anyway, we shall see what happens next. 215 000 end of December is not good, but its not that bad to be honest.

  25. RealrastaBwoi January 21, 2012

    I am soooo happy that Kelly is droppin this video… i just love, loveee her,,, cant wait 2 see it nxt week… #TeamKelly

    Follw me on twitter @DaRealRastaBwoi chk me out for scoops n dish http://youtu.be/0-UiB7hYSbg

  26. Lola January 21, 2012

    Who Cares About Album Sales. She Makes GOOD Music And That’s Really All That Matters. People Are Waaay Too Focused On Sales Now A Days. No One Cares About The Music Anymore. Smfh!

  27. JP January 21, 2012

    I’m not really feeling her latest album, but I usually enjoy Kelly’s music.

    I hope she earns success with the video. Also jealous she got to be all over Lance.

  28. williNalli January 22, 2012

    FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. X,Y,”and Z” January 22, 2012

    Blame her management – call THEIR names!

    Blame Matthew Knowles: the devil incarnate!

    Blame “House of Dereon” and Knowles-Carter – Matthew has friends in every dark corner!

    Blame her label – it’s all a conspiracy – why not blame the place where Baby Jesus lay cradled?

    Blame Simon Cowell: X-Factor U.K. didn’t capture the..”essence of Kelly”; his win, and the world’s loss – belly-full and none-of-the-many!

    Blame the 15-Million who weekly-watched with bated breath; pearls before swines: the shack, near outhouse, where the bacon is salted, dried and kept!

    Blame – most certainly – her choreographer and stylists – wherever guilty parties exists, drag them to justice – and give us our measure of bliss!

    Blame “ITN”: “Our Sister Of The Chocolate”; SHE: so terribly wronged – now reads the verdict: “Criminally Negligent Time Slotted”.

    Blame “Strictly Come Dancing” – how dare they..!!

    ..HEADS WILL ROLL: “full cups of our measure”, yet again: belly-full, and none of the many.

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

  30. Steph January 22, 2012

    Can’t wait!!! Love you Kelly! Solid TUNE! Bless!

  31. Collegegirl January 22, 2012

    So excited about this video premiere! Can’t wait to see her perform it!

    KELLY ROWLAND NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY RIGHT? I THINK KERI HILSON SHOULD HAVE BE NOMINATED BEFORE HER.

  34. sonic January 22, 2012

    KERI HILSON SOLD MORE ALBUMS THAN KELLY ROWLAND.

  35. Shantelle January 22, 2012

  39. Taylor J January 22, 2012

    ** IF KELLY ROWLAND WANTS A TOP 10 HIT SINGLE, SHE HAS TO RE-RECORD AND RELEASE “UNITY” FOR UNIVERSAL (HER NEW LABEL) ! WITHOUT QUESTION THIS SONG IS HER MOST MEANINGFUL AND UNDERRATED TRACK TO DATE … READ THE BLOGS AND WHAT OTHER ARTISTS HAVE SAID ! EVEN BEYONCE LOVES THIS AMAZING BALLAD – HELLO ? C’MON KELLS – SHOOT A VIDEO, PERFORM THIS GEM LIVE AND WATCH THE MUSIC WORLD HELP YOU RISE TO THE VERY TOP WHERE YOU BELONG ! “UNITY” IS THE ANSWER <3 <3

  40. MUTHAFUCKAH WE ROWLAND January 22, 2012

    YAAASSSSSS!!!!! GO GO GO GO!!!!!!!

    That’s my girl!

  41. X,Y,”and Z” January 22, 2012

    @TaylorJ re: 12:17 pm —

    “Re-record and release ‘Unity’ as a new single,” in hopes it’ll revive your fave’s career..?!

    That’ll just prove to be ANOTHER disappointment, and an exercise in chronic futility!

    As for “Universal”..?! Well, they, after seeing that entire fiasco of her getting that weekly-access to 15-Million X-Factor viewers, and then miserably failing to capitalize on it?! ..Don’t be too surprised if you soon hear/see ’bout your fave announce that she’s “dissatisfied with ‘Universal’ and is now walking away” (or some other freeze-dried, quick-spun nonsense).

    NO: One ‘bad’ CD doesn’t equate to “walking papers”. But that failure as a judge/mentor, as weekly-witnessed by said 15-Million Europeans, “counts 2X” as a RED MARK against the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland – not unlike “Ms. Kelly” had been T-HE- deciding factor, after “Simply Deep” forced ‘Colombia’ to drop her.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT: Kelly Rowland won’t be seen on X-Factor, come the 2012 season. Simon Cowell (as I’ve said) is not a man to repeat a mistake. And he’s certainly not now one to “reward” failure. He won’t allow your fave, the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland, to “fall/fail-upwards” as she’s so aptly demonstrated her entire career.

    X,Y,”and Z”

  42. I tell the truth January 22, 2012

    Anybody thinking Unity would happen for kelly is a joker.
    kelly has sold 186,422 copies as of today.
    171th album in the United states is a major flop. It wasn”t like there were lots of big time artists release this year.
    Kelly is not going to be in a Top 40 R&B albums. Stop the lying.

  43. Kelly is a flop January 22, 2012

    Motivation was a Top20 hit. Some of y’all fans be acting like motivation was Top10 or Top 5 on BB100 or hell #1 on BB100. If any kelly rowland fan calls any stan base a flop they need to be killed. I’m sorry Kelly has flopped so hard that I’d be scared to be a fan. It would feel like her failure would rub off on me.

  44. Steph January 22, 2012

    It doesn’t matter if Kelly has “flopped” your own opinion or standard or statistics. A fan is a fan and they support their faves no matter what! She’s doing what she loves doing and if you ask any artist releasing an album is an award on its own. I am proud of her and wish her well, regardless of what anyone thinks.

  45. X,Y,”and Z” January 22, 2012

    @Steph —

    Just THREE questions:

    (But first..)
    She was seen, weekly, by some 15-Million X-Factor U.K. viewers. She was even voted one of THE “most popular” of the then ‘sitting X-Factor U.K.’ Judge/Mentors. Yet, “Here I am” debuted at #43, then quickly, only briefly after 10-weeks, dropped completely OFF the U.K. Top-100 chart. Mind you, this comes AFTER she was featured in/on one of T-H-E most anticipated, better supported 2011 U.S. Summer Tours: Chris Brown’s “F.A.M.E” tour..

    1.) So, what happened?
    2.) How many MORE chances do we give the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland whose now been in ‘the game’ for some 20-years..??
    3.) She said,”Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are T-H-E most attractive.” If you are a black men, a HETEROSEXUAL black man, why then support her??

    X,Y,”and Z”

  46. X,Y,”and Z” January 22, 2012

    My bad: multi-tasking, no proofreading, and over 65wpm has to stop: “If you are a black MAN…” ..Not “MEN” *red-faced*

    X,Y,”and Z”

  47. Steph January 22, 2012

    Its a free world, support who you want, and leave others to support who they want. Live and let live…

  48. X,Y,”and Z” January 22, 2012

    @Steph re: Jan 22nd, 4:41 pm —

    “Its a free world, support who you want, and leave others to support who they want. Live and let live..”

    You’re deflecting!!! I had – AT NO TIME – tried to deny you your “right to/of choice” – and if you said I had, then you’re a liar!

    ..That said, can you just answer the three simple questions I’d posted at 3:08 pm?? No-more of your self-righteous indignation, nor outta-left-field baseless accusations.

    (Meh..) Here, yet again:

    1.) So, what happened?
    2.) How many MORE chances do we give the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland whose now been in ‘the game’ for some 20-years..??
    3.) She’d said,”Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are T-H-E most attractive.” If you are a black men, a HETEROSEXUAL black man, why then support her??

    X,Y,”and Z”

  49. NI**AS in LOnDoN January 22, 2012

    Lord!!! Kelly has a very big fan,so big this fan has become a stalker…congrats X,Y and Z,you just won stalker of the century award.

  50. Steph January 22, 2012

    XYZ Whatever… Go Kellyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

  51. said so January 22, 2012

    Guys, don’t read X,Y,Z’s comments. I have stopped. He is so obsessed by Kelly Rowland, in a bad way. I personally think he is the anti-Kelly Rowland devil’s messenger. So I just skip his comments and usually most of them are incorrect any way!

  52. X,Y,”and Z” January 22, 2012

    @Said So re: 8:46 pm —

    How am I “obsessed” and “most of my comments incorrect”?

    Incorrect comments/statements..?!?!

    (Meh..) Will your fave, the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland, be “seen” come the ‘2012 X-Factor U.K.’ season?

    ..”‘SIMON SAYS’…..”NO!”

    Haven’t now, “Here I am”, even with your Kelly being seen, WEEKLY, by some 15-Million U.K./European viewers, proved itself to be one of, if not T-H-E worse-yet commercial endeavors for the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland?

    ..”‘SIMON SAYS’…”YES!”

    ..Let’s see: World Wide, she’s yet to move 300K, no? EPIC, BIBLICAL(like, build me an ark..)FAILURE..!!!

    Hadn’t the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland said, repeatedly, “Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are T-H-E most attractive/beautiful”..?? YUP! She most certain had.

    @Steph, N**as In Londo, and Said So —

    Since Feb 8th, 2009 I’ve learned a few things that’s now seared into memory, and carved into my consciousness:

    1.)The longer I keep writing EXACTLY what I’ve been writing, and repeating what I’ve been saying – the more others will read it, and inevitably agree with me. It’s kinda like…”hypnotic”: the repetition, in its many guises.

    2.)And “Said So” the more YOU tell other bloggers NOT to read my comments, the more they’ll do JUST the opposite: read my comments!!

    You three are what I’d imagine to be T-H-E absolute worst fans/supporters an artist could EVER have. You-all are doing your fave a disservice. ‘Bad-enough’ you didn’t go out and buy her CD; but you now totally disregard logical, well-crafted questions – based not in malice, but in sheer curiosity!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

  53. B January 23, 2012

    I Love Kelly, but Here I am is a terrible album. She needs to come better

  54. Just Me January 23, 2012

    Here I Am was actually a great album….but why did it take so long to release this video, this is too long Kelly. Kelly’s nor her team know what their doing, and Kelly must be too submissive..she’s not pushing her team hard enough.

  55. Myrl22 January 23, 2012

    i LOVE KELLY ROWLAND 4EVER AND A DAY BUT EVEN THO IM NOT AN EXPERT IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, I CAN SEE THAT PROMOTION WAS NOT ON POINT. BUT I DONT CARE, STILL LOVE AND SUPPORT MY GIRL… HER MUSIC SPEAKS TO ME. ♥luv

  56. THE REAL TYLER January 23, 2012

    CAN’T WAIT

    THOUGHT SHE WAS PUTTING IT OUT ON VALENTINES DAY????

    THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER AND WOULD HAVE HAD MORE OF AN IMPACT BUT AS SHE SAYS IN THE SONG “SO WHATEVER”

  57. nick January 23, 2012

    Love Kelly. 30- something year old Kelly is simply the best! Love, love, love her!
