‘Kisses Down Low’: Kelly Rowland Enjoys ‘Super Bowl’ Sales Spike

Published: Monday 4th Feb 2013 by David

 If the following weeks see her play her promo cards right, Kelly Rowland may be on course to scoring her first R&B smash hit of the year.

That’s right, thanks to her brief appearance on Beyonce‘s ‘Super Bowl Half Time‘ extravaganza, the ‘Haven’t Told You’ singer has nabbed two favorable chart positions with her latest singles, ‘Ice’ and ‘Kisses Down Low‘.

Produced by ‘Love Me’ mastermind Mike Will Made It, Kelly’s ‘Kisses’ catwalks up the iTunes R&B chart- securing a new home at #27, just one spot beneath Keyshia Cole’s ‘Trust & Believe‘.

Fuelled by renewed interest in the star’s work following last night’s show, the ‘Motivation’ darling also kicks dust in the face of a number of her rivals, now that ‘Ice‘ holds tight at #29. Impressive, considering it became available for digital download in the August of last year and has now outsold cuts released by a number of her contemporaries months later.

After the success of ‘Motivation’ in 2011, we hope Camp Kelly have plans in place to ensure both ‘Ice’ and ‘Kisses’ reach to the top of R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart and generate enough momentum for its supporting album, ‘Year Of The Woman‘.

      • YOU MAD? February 5, 2013

        Me either! I kept rewinding to that part when she came out of the stage. I was like damn Kelly is about to solidify herself in the game. Her image is on point.

    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! February 4, 2013


  5. Mischief February 4, 2013

    Ice could have charted higher #65 hot 100 and the veeeeeery video was late No promo? Kelly is the IT urban girl right now no doubt kisses down low will smash

    • WomanToWoman February 4, 2013

      it peaked at #88 though.

      • YO MAMMA February 4, 2013


    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

      You know what, I´m so mad at Kelly !!! Did you see how she can dance ?? Did you see how she can perform ?? Did you see how s*** she was…..She has to continue work and promote like that. Believe me, she can be a super star if she wants to

      • Angela Wesley February 4, 2013

        Girl007Bond, Everybody and their mamma was mad
        at Kelly last night. Even Beyonce was giving her
        the side eye, when the camera was showing Kelly
        dancing and singing to Single Ladies. I read so many
        comments about Kelly and her team going all out
        to promote YOTW..

    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! February 4, 2013

      Ice has served its purpose and still does.

  6. maka February 4, 2013

    you are sooo right Samantha… #29 on the rnb chart is sooooo impressive. am soooo impressed now it’s crazy wow

    • diva123 February 4, 2013

      why all this shade though…. it’s so freakin uncalled for. She is a R&B artist not a pop star YET. She is not Rhianna where she can sell singles just off her name online and it shoot straight to #1. The world still doesn’t totally no who Kely Rowland is. But this is good news being that she has had no major promotional push of her single.

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

      The point is, that her songs jumped higher on a higer position

  7. williNalli February 4, 2013

    The Goddess was serving it like none. Damn…I don’t think I’ll ever get over it.

  8. SlayDeleAdkins February 4, 2013

    Congrats Kelly!!!
    Hopefully this will give her a wake up call!!!

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

  13. Heavy Heavy February 4, 2013

    See all Kelly needs is Beyonce type promo and she will slay the Hot 100. They need to invest more money in her in order for her to be more successful. Congrats Kelly, the start of a great era…..i hope!

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

        Kelly sounded amazing last night. What were you watching?

  20. : : . W A T E R S P O R T S February 4, 2013

    Girl stop with that R&B charts – obsession for God’s sake.

    KDL is S***, may I add.

    Along with the other flop known as “Ice”, it’s one of those songs that I can’t even hit Play on.

    • islandboi242 February 4, 2013

      ice did not flop it was top 10 in america n top 5 in other foreign country…

    • mk February 4, 2013

      and how did you know it was crap if you never played it? hypocrate! s***

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 4, 2013

      Im not crazy about either song eithet but ice wasnt a flop here in the us.

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

      hmmm, we don´t care

    • We LOVE YOU KELLY !!! February 4, 2013

      The delusion of these haters baffles me.

  21. Katelyn February 4, 2013

    That’s great! people need to get one fact though. people love Kelly, they genuinely want to see her win. That’s why she has been able to remain relevant. but Kelly has to realize that in order to be a true Key figure in the business she has to to be more organized. Because the sloppy promo.. unset dates.. inconsistent performances..and disappearing acts is the only thing holdInc her back. and people are only going to give her so few chances before they write her off.

    I sometimes wish a big name label or artist would takes her under their wing .and invest money and times in her.

    • Dave February 4, 2013

      I partly agree with that. But if people read, she’s had to budget her own career lately, nobody knows what goes behind the scenes. Beyonce has had the luctury of having parents to go EXTRA hard for her, so her talent was more refined, & she has WAYYY more networth than the likes of Ms. Rowland. “Ice” was a buzz single, she performed it like once, I’m sure she did that on purpose. Her 1st official single (this song posted here) has just been released. I think she’s learned from “Here I Am” era, & over the last 2 years since separating from Matthew, Kelly has done wonders for her career. Mind u when she got her 1st #1 worldwide hit “When Love Takes Over”, she has independent, & that was all her on that song.

    • mob: tired of the feminization of men February 4, 2013

      You cannot underestimate the POWER THAT BE’s influence and control over the industry via the new MEDIA-MUSIC INDUSTRY MONOPOLY! Kelly, like Brandy, Monica, Keyshia Cole-Gibson and few other songbirds are not positioned so that they will achieve a certain level of success. Beyonce, Rihanna, Adele, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and a few others have been “positioned” within the media for the success they current have!

      In other words, there is much more involved in an artists success than just hit records and a good team around them. The POWERS THAT BE will also have to allow you to perform & promote your material at major events. Not all acts are able to do that! Or haven’t you realized that by now?

  22. islandboi242 February 4, 2013

    Kelly Rowland came out with a vengeance! She was like yawl think this will be like back in the day im f****** Kelly Rowland now! #Slayed

    • YOU MAD? February 5, 2013

      My sentiments exactly! She was NOT playing!!!!!

  23. F****** Hairy (Riherpes stole WFL from Leona Lewis) February 4, 2013

    I see Mrs. Carter revived her friend’s struggling career.
    I hope Kelly can keep the momentum going by HERSELF without using assistance.

    • diva123 February 4, 2013

      UUUUhhhhh…. the last time I checked Kelly Rowland has been doing well and holding her own as a solo r&b artist. She is doing just fine and is going to continue to shine regardless if she performed alongside Bey at the super bowl. If anything Bey benefited the most from all of this bcuz it’s her haltime show. And the last time I checked Kelly revived her OWN career with her hit Motivation back in 2011. Give that woman her credit and stop tha mutha fkn hating!

      • mob: tired of the feminization of men February 4, 2013

        YES!! She did her thing on the F.A.M.E. Tour as well. She’s a good entertainer. Unfortunately Beyonce has always had a better team around her which pushed her into superstardom while th eothers have famously struggld. With that siad, I think Kelly has been holding her own as of late!

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

      Mrs Cater has to start to help her own

  28. RymeReason February 4, 2013

    She looked good last night. It’s a shame her mic was turned down the lowest next to Beyonce and Michelle.

    • IDK February 4, 2013

      I was wondering why she sounded so low and beyonce was loud.

    • amina February 4, 2013

      Yes her mic was turnes down and its a shame.
      she was very confident last nignt. ( the engeneer decide to keep the same mix that when she sing along bey and its a ridiculous, anyway she was good.

      and always be next to be, she feel like home she need to keep the energy for the future perfomances.

      go kelly

    • mob: tired of the feminization of men February 4, 2013

      Okay, I’m trying not to give into the ” conspiracy therapy” but…..ummmmm *serious side-eye*. She was looking good so I guess we couldn’t also have her sounding good too! LOL, No, I’m just kiding! I think they were having some technical difficulties in the New Orleans Arena that night!

      • mob: tired of the feminization of men February 4, 2013

        **”Conspiracy Theory” 🙂

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

  31. mob: tired of the feminization of men February 4, 2013

    Ppl can say WHATEVER but Ms. Kelly Rowland looked amazing and did her thang. Funny how everyone was talking about her just about upstaging Bey!! LOL 🙂 I had hoped they would have performed a bit more. Those were the songs ppl actually knew. Anyway, overall Beyonce, Kelly & Michelle did a great job!

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

      That DC part was way to short though

      • ME February 4, 2013

        it really was, and that was the best part. *shrugs* oh well. At least we have it on video to rewatch it over and over.

  32. K$ February 4, 2013

    23# on the R&B iTunes ? LMFAOOOOOOOOOO

    • Girl007Bond February 4, 2013

      which position is she at the general Itunes charts?

  33. OMG Just Google Kelsnetwork and see what happens… February 4, 2013

    Everyone knows I’m one of the biggest fans around but Kisses down low didnt enjoy a sales spike..it was 13 on itunes R&B a few days ago so 23 is unfortunately not impressive. TeamKelly buy the single on Itunes and lets get this song to #1

  34. Pop Royalty February 4, 2013

    i know it will sound funny , but for once Kelly upstaged beyonce in her own show , she stole her thunder , especially in that DC3 harmonies part !!

    all that despite Beyonce’s sound engineer turning her mic down.

  35. mr.m February 4, 2013
