Poll: Kelly Rowland’s Next Single Should Be…

Published: Friday 26th Jul 2013 by Sam

Critical acclaim greeted Kelly Rowland‘s fourth studio album ‘Talk A Good Game’ when it strut into stores last month. And with ample reason too; the ‘Kisses Down Low’ led set lived up to its billing sonically and lyrically, delivering – what many are hailing – the diva’s best work yet.

With the project’s second single ‘Dirty Laundry’ serving as more of a campaign amplifier than a radio “hit”, word has it Ms. Kelly is gearing up to release a third cut from the LP…which begs the question: what do YOU think should be the next single from ‘Talk A Good Game’?

Make your voice heard after the jump, you never know who’s watching!

That Grape Juice’s Pick:

Gone (ft. Wiz Khalifa)

While not necessarily the best track from the project (that honor sits with ‘Down On Love’ and ‘Put Your Name On It)’, the Harmony production is the most commercial. As such with Rowland’s new judging gig on The X Factor USA being as mainstream a platform as mainstream gets, it’s almost a no-brainer that the Pop flavoured number get the single treatment.

Add to that the success fellow R&B ladies have had using popular samples (hello ‘Body Party’), and the Joni Mitchell ‘Big Yellow Taxi’ reference featured in ‘Gone’ (popularised by Janet Jackson‘s ‘Got ‘Til It’s Gone’) seals the deal for us.

In any case, we want to hear from YOU!

    You’ve Changed….. 4show!

    • #Beautiful July 26, 2013

      *You Changed!

      • stephy the lambily July 26, 2013

        Hi, my fellow lamb

    • Anne July 27, 2013

      I doubt that she will release “You Changed” at this point. I’m sure she wants to have a solo hit from the album first so it won’t seem as though she had to rely on the girls of DC to save the album, although I’m not sure that the release of “You Changed” would actually change the footing of the album. I think her biggest solo hit potential is “Gone.”

  3. rowland stone July 26, 2013

    So hard….the Album is THAT AMAZING!!!

      • stephy the lambily July 26, 2013

        @ciara 57k tho

  4. Sue July 26, 2013

    ‘Gone’, could have been the summer party jam.

  5. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 26, 2013

    ” I remember” or “Street life” .

    • thelasDON July 27, 2013

      i agrees with u 100%..

  6. Trinarockstarr July 26, 2013

    Street life or Gone

  7. Daniel Teflon July 26, 2013

    I Like Kelendria Rowland’s album the whole thing is a Great Get Up & Go!!

  8. Draggin4MrsCarter July 26, 2013

    What is the point when she can’t even be bothered to promote it.

    • Sarah July 26, 2013

      Just answer the damn question

  9. HOWYOULIKEIT July 26, 2013

    kelly i swear you should pick put your name on it as the next single. the song is groundbreaking

    • NewLife July 26, 2013

      Right!! I didnt purchase the album but the 1st time i heard ” Put Your Name On It ” i instantly downloaded! Would be a smash if released!

    • doubline47 July 26, 2013

      True,best song on the album

    • Sarah July 26, 2013

      That song is the EPITOME of R&B along with Down On Love..this is such a hard choice..the ENTIRE is superb!

  10. Ever.Green July 26, 2013

    Street Life !!!
    Great send of Summer jam, feels like a street party

    • Angela Wesley July 28, 2013

      Street life for sure or Stand in front of me. It is
      very hard to just choose one song.

  11. Alex July 26, 2013

    ‘Gone’ is definitely a single that would serve the album well. By that I mean it would SELL the project. It has simply got ‘HIT’ written all over it. This album is by far her best yet which is all the more reason why her team HAVE TO play their cards right this time around. Her management tend to release singles and just hope for the best (no promotion); here’s hoping they’ll squeeze as much as they can out of this record, the standard of music on it deserves acclaim both critically and commercially but above all, Kelly deserves it.

  12. RICHIE_RICH July 26, 2013

    I feel bad cause I didn’t get Kelly album, bought Ciara HORRIBLE album instead(Body party is really the best song on the album). Heads to target or best buy to get Kelly album.

    • stephanie July 26, 2013

      You won’t regret it! it’s AWESOME!

      • RICHIE_RICH July 26, 2013

        I must say what I’ve heard thus far is GOOD.

  13. Tony July 26, 2013

    This is Love
    Freak or
    Street Life

  14. Dev July 26, 2013

    The second single should’ve been gone after she preformed it prior to the album’s release. Then You changed/Street life so not to get too caught up in the destiny’s childness, and then Down on love/this is love. End of album, xfactor then mini tour and then on to the next. The songs need to double up because they’re album worthy but not that strong apart from gone & street life

  15. stephanie July 26, 2013


  16. AngelCMYK July 26, 2013

    I love Freak and I Remember, maybe not mainstream enough…

    Its a good album, I stan for Ciara but I love Kelly as well, she deserve more success.

  17. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 26, 2013

    You changed>>

  18. Sarah July 26, 2013

    This is such a hard choice..im literally IN LOVE with this album…i absolutely LOVEEEE Down on Love & Put Your Name on it…the epitome of R&B….But for Summer definitely Gone or Red Wine..Red Wine sounds so damn good…”what you know about loving me till the sun comes up” But i think gone is more catchy…BUT i also think Street Life will make a dope ass video!

  19. S*** July 26, 2013

    to generate interest: You Changed
    but Stand In Front Of Me is the BEST song on tagg

  20. RoyalKev July 26, 2013

    I like Talk A Good Game and Red Wine best, but if I of think what might attract radio programmers I have to go with Street Life (although I’m not crazy about the hook).

    • RoyalKev July 26, 2013

      *if I of think

  21. Chester July 26, 2013

    Tbh her next single should be either Down on Love, Gone or You Change… I think she should release I Remember when X Factor airs

  22. Why You Mad Tho? July 26, 2013

    #1 has urban smash written all over it but since it wasn’t included in the pole I’ll go with Down on Love or Put Your Name On It for urban radio, and Gone for pop radio.

  23. The Boy Toy July 26, 2013

    Lmao! I’d say Gone, but not like shes gonna promote the s***! I’m over her!

  24. Rihanna’s B**** :D July 26, 2013

    Now… I LOVE this album !
    but she’s not going to promote it lmao
    but I’ll say I Remebe or Gone

    • The Boy Toy July 26, 2013

      I loooooove I Remember!!

  25. Lil Mo Stan and trey burkes husband (Kendricks d*** game wasnt on point) July 26, 2013

    Im in love with this is love and red wine. I want a video for freak (something mimicking lil freak by usher) and red wine is my “gimme dat d***” song. Down on love is too damn good, however gone and freak sound more”single-ish”

  26. chrstinastherealtalent July 26, 2013

    If Kelly wants any kind of sales this time around she should aim for You’ve Changed to appeal to DC fans so she can get that “hit” or go with Freak since it has hints of pop, funk, dance and urban

  27. Lil Mo Stan and trey burkes husband (Kendricks d*** game wasnt on point) July 26, 2013

    Yes t, yes shade, but @ciara is everything. You’re clearly not a c-error fan because you drag others specifically so MANs-Error could be dragged. C-me,tear-up is a flop and its unfortunate because shea a good choreographer, but she better date a mogul like cassie to stay relevant because her 15 minutes expired three albums ago. Her music sucks!

  28. ShitGotReal July 26, 2013

    I think freak should be her next single.

  29. thetruth July 26, 2013

    International single: I remember

    Urban hit: SKYWALKER <<< best choice! Take The Dream off n put a young hot rapper on it like B.O.B. This is her niche…

    Urban/Pop: Gone ft Wiz want chart much bcuz its not Kelly enough.. urban s***, sultry kelly! People r used to a certain sound from her… it doesn't have to be sexual…

    My choices: Skywalker (next urban single), I Remember (International single)

  30. bravo!! July 26, 2013

    Billboards not checking for next single..Free download and Kelly prey for a Destiny Child Album

  31. DIGGER BEY July 26, 2013

    Well every single is has potenial! Queen Kelly went in with this album! I luv every song on the album! Kelly has smashes all over this album, she just has to promote them as such! In saying that, I think its going to be DOL or GONE! If she releases DOL or PYNOI! Its fawkin overrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Those two songs are built around SLAYAGE Impact! But I still would luv to see her go for singles like I REMEMBER, SKYWALKER, YOU CHANGED, OR LOVE ME TILL I DIE! The latter is another SLAYAGE n the waiting!

  32. SxVGE July 26, 2013

    “PUT YOUR NAME ON IT” should be considered!

  33. gio88 July 26, 2013

    if her news ingle will handled like dirty laundry (or all her singles) , better she doesn’t release anything

  34. Senshi_NyNavy July 26, 2013

    My choice is between down on love and I remember both are personal favorites of mine
    I still think Ms Kelly is here best work to date though

  35. Nicko Rowlandstone July 26, 2013

    Down On Love (US) and I Remember (Europe and Asia)

  36. DIGGER BEY July 26, 2013

    Lmao!!!! Non

  37. Jarboo July 27, 2013

    Gone should without a doubt be da next single.

  38. Kisses Down Low July 27, 2013


  39. HOWYOULIKEIT July 27, 2013

    Even if there are hits ont the album, i dont think the campaign is in good hands. How come the video for dirty laundry just came out and she is already thinking about the next song?

    • Anne July 27, 2013

      You are right, that doesn’t make much sense. Maybe they are considering what the next single will be but don’t plan to release it for a while. Or maybe we are being misinformed in this post. Either way, the album seems to be in trouble. I don’t know if any single will be strong enough to make a difference at this point. I like “Gone” and “Street Life” but I’m not sure if either is radio friendly. Still, besides the DC-like “You Changed”, those two have the most potential n my opinion.

      • HOWYOULIKEIT July 27, 2013

        at this poitn i can only wish her good luck. and i wanna see her perform dirty laundry

  40. tino July 27, 2013

    at this point my top three tracks from the LP is Down On Love Skywalker And I Remember But I’m Sure Whatever She Decides Would Make Us All Happy But Whatever she picks It Needs To Happen Like Now Keep That Momentum going don’t let it die down

  41. settoz July 27, 2013

    This is love

  42. thelasDON July 27, 2013

    I think they should release GONE and Street LIfe as singles tomorrow!! send GOne to pop radio and then send Street Life to urban radio im sure they can generate sales for the album..

  43. Lola July 27, 2013

    Geez.. Lets See. Skywalker, Red Wine, This Is Love, Down On Love Or I Remember!!!!! Love The Whole Damn Album. Lol

  44. 80sBaby July 27, 2013

    Gone should be the next single, but I want Kelly to really promote the heck out of it.

  45. westkev July 28, 2013

    I think street life will be a wise choice as the next single .gone ,put ur name on it,this is love, freak,and get back will also b gr8 choices ie if it has a gr8 dance video and promotion

  46. Evpk July 28, 2013

    She has a song er aduced by ” Mike Will Made. It should be the next single it’s hot!!!!!!!VOTE #1

  47. Jarod Jones (JJ) August 5, 2013

    What about “Skywalker?”
    In my opinion it should be the next single and it’s nowhere to be found on the poll :/
