Report: Kelly Rowland Leaves Record Label

Published: Wednesday 19th Mar 2014 by Sam

R&B songbird Kelly Rowland is spreading her wings.

For, after releasing two albums on Universal Republic, the ‘Motivation’ maestra is now a free agent.

Details after the jump…

According to CNN correspondent Jawn Murray, the diva departed the label (which is housed under the Universal Music umbrella) way back in December.

Contrary to speculation that suggested the star had been “dropped”, Rowland is said to have requested a release from her contract following the performance of last year’s ‘Talk A Good Game’ – which, though critically acclaimed, has thus far only sold 215,000 copies in total.

According to Murray, though, the 33-year-old’s frustrations with her label home actually stemmed from before the project’s release. Indeed, despite lead single ‘Kisses Down Low’ becoming a radio hit and being certified Gold by the RIAA (a feat few Urban flavoured cuts achieve these days), the project struggled to maintain the very thing that fuels sales — momentum.

The situation is alleged to have become ultra tense when Rowland signed on to be a judge for the third season of ‘The X Factor‘. According to Murray “her team asked the label to release a new single to capitalize off the eight million viewers the show averaged each week. The label chose not to capitalize off of Rowland’s involvement on the show and the singer asked to be released from her contact”.

Interestingly, Rowland only become part of the UR roster due to a structural change that saw most of the artists at Universal Motown (the label she initially signed to in 2010) absorbed into Republic.

As for the singer’s next steps? The report adds that she has been working on her fifth studio album and is already in negotiations with the multitude of labels eager to snap her up. {Source}

**************

Interesting. Very.

Rather than wallow in the reasons for the split (which we’re sure will differ depending on who one speaks to), we’d rather look to what “could” be a very positive change of environment for Kelly’s career.

For, with any new label deal comes new marketing, new publicists, new A&R’s, new radio pluggers, new everything.

That said, it’s down to Team Kelly to make the right pick to ensure the right fit. It’s an increasingly competitive marketplace, hence ensuring one has the best label home is more imperative now than ever before. Especially for Kelly.

As for where we’d like to see her? That’s simple. Anywhere that’ll ensure she fulfils the potential so clearly embedded in her brand. In terms of specifics, the instalment of industry vet and active Rowland supporter Syliva Rhone as President at Epic Records today comes at an “interesting” time, as does the upcoming launch of the official Roc Nation record label.

Still, in echoing the point above, we’re simply keen to see Kelly anywhere that’ll ensure her solo star and stock continue to rise.

      • Roman Minaj March 20, 2014

        BUT. You still got the point. Have a good day sweetums.

  3. mypenizfresh March 19, 2014

    Well hopefully it is a good move for Kelly. A problem with TAGG was single choices and dropping the ball on cuts like ‘Down on Love’ ‘Number #1’ and the title track. Hopefully she will go to a label that will support her and push her a little more than previous efforts did.

    • The truth honey March 19, 2014

      honey she was DROPPED!!! we knew it here in atlanta a few days ago honey. They dropped her like Rhianna dropped herpies on men AND women chile. kii

      • MK March 20, 2014

        dropped? she left baby take it from me and labels presidents eb hunting her down u wait n see

  4. BeyBeyKing March 19, 2014

    Bullfucking s***. She was dropped.
    She lies to herself and says she’s content with her career but the fact remains that she is flopping and no label would want to keep anyone who wastes their time and money.

  5. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    All i see is lies she got mad cause the label didn’t wanna release another single they knew would flop. Well atleast now Kelly can be a contestant on the Xfactor instead of the judge.

  6. Draggin4MrsCarter March 19, 2014

    Lies.
    The problem isn’t the ONE album it’s her entire career. How many labels will she blame for her laziness.

  7. TurntUp4Cici March 19, 2014

    You told a big lie Kelly.

  8. Sarah March 19, 2014

    There you have it! And for anyone else who states otherwise..Like the above Molly character..perhaps you are just as illiterate as we assume you are!! Good Luck Kelendria!! You will surely be a force to reckon with if promoted correctly!!

  9. mimi carey March 19, 2014

    We all know she was dropped it was only a matter of time four flop albums in a row

  10. tits mcgee March 19, 2014

    She is talented, but stays losing. I think she needs to figure what she wants to do and be relentless about achieving it. Kelly seems half hearted about her endeavors to me..

  11. Chillin March 19, 2014

    DEADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD at Kelly making all these people mad in here HAHAHA!!!! Go Kelly!!!! These low class stans can’t handle the truth and are the true meaning of delusional!…Saying anything to make themselves feel better hahaha..Go GO GO GOOOOOOOOOOO!!

  12. kim Kardashian Stan March 19, 2014

    Kelly start a business or model because being a solo artist is not you’re thing im sure Beyonce will let you be Blues full time nanny tho.

  13. Mark111 March 19, 2014

    B**** you wes dropped. Stop it. Better ask Ashanti for inde tips, cause no label will want your non selling lazy ass. Go be Blu’s baby sitter, you’re done Kelly.

    Ciara said the same crap, and even she will be dropped after her next flop.

  14. HausMuthaAdele March 19, 2014

    Because that makes complete sense (!) The reason she was DROPPED is because the only person that makes money from her if she and her future husband. I have been following her career since DC and I will tell you that Mathew was to blame when she was signed by him but now the fault lies with her.

    Don’t sit there and act as though TAGG is the problem when this has been happening even BEFORE she got this new deal. You’re too lazy to put your career first but you’re surprised when nobody else does and then have the f****** nerve to blame your label because your manager doesn’t have a f****** clue about anything besides giving you the D, making you TV money and getting his percentage.

    Get it together Kelly. Get it the f*** together.

  15. kim Kardashian Stan March 19, 2014

    @Chillin or maybe you’re just delusional what do we have to be mad about? the b**** is still label less regardless.

  16. Lana Del Slay March 19, 2014

    You were dropped.

  17. kim Kardashian Stan March 19, 2014

    If she releases a indie album it would even sale 10k Kelly dont promote Lmao. @mark

    • kim Kardashian Stan March 19, 2014

      wouldn’t

    • MK March 20, 2014

      says a p*** star

  18. JanetXone March 19, 2014

    But Kelly, how many times has this happened?

  19. Lil Wayne/Drake Stan March 19, 2014

    I thought she got dropped?? Anyways i hope she finds success at another label.

  20. Haha March 19, 2014

    She was dropped, this has already been reported.

  21. Chillin March 19, 2014

    @kim Kardashian…If the report says that she was NOT dropped then thats what it is….The ONLY delusional people are the mad ones who cant face the truth and saying she was dropped when clearly she wasnt…LMAO!! Congrats Kelly!! You got these cowards heated…hahaha #TeamKelly!!

  22. Haha March 19, 2014

    She flops on every label. There’s no hope for her.

  23. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Well I always thought it was weird that she didn’t take advantage of XFactor by releasing more singles. TAGG was a solid album with plenty of potential singles. If her label would have supported her, she would have easliy surpassed gold!

    215,000 is pretty good considering she stopped promoting and releasing singles after Dirty Laundry!(Summer 2013).

    Good luck to Kelly. She’s one of the leading R&B artists of the present!

    • Nostalgia1989 March 19, 2014

      “Leading R&B artists of the present.” Frank begs to differ.

      • slay_hive March 19, 2014

        “She’s ONE of the leading R&B artists of the present”

        Reading and Comprehending is fundamental! 😉

      • Ty ty (ghetto gothic dance queen) March 19, 2014

        Yet she gets outsold by Keyshia Cole, Tamar,K.Michelle,Alicia Keys, etc

      • slay_hive March 19, 2014

        All of the people you named have sold within 200,000 copies with there most recent releases, with the exception of Alicia of course.

        The only difference is Kelly still got to 200,000 without releasing several singles and constant album promo like Keyshia, Tamar, and K. Michelle.

        If Kelly finds a label that will support her, she’ll be fine

      • Mileys movement March 19, 2014

        Woman to Woman sold 400k so you can stop there.

      • slay_hive March 19, 2014

        Woman to Woman was promoted and released two years ago. BYE!

      • Keri Krew Kween March 19, 2014

        What promo did K. Michelle get? Like one late night t.v performance?

    • anonymous March 19, 2014

      You said the people that were named all sold within 200,000, but actually K Michelle, and Tamar, sold over 300k though.

      • OH March 19, 2014

        f****** lie lmao anonymous

      • anonymous March 19, 2014

        No ones lying. Last week TGJ reported Tamar sold 361k. As for K Michelle, wikipedia says she sold 314k.

      • PROF March 19, 2014

        Both of whom had TV exposure prior to the release. People like drama and both of these people had plenty of it, which catered to the audience of drama queens. They should have sold in the millions with the amount of exposure they received weekly. Since I don’t do reality TV, I assume they were promoting their album and talking about their albums the entire season.

  24. BarbzRUs March 19, 2014

    Since my fav makes lots of money for her label I have no reason to be pressed. Kelly was let go because her label noticed like all of us already did that she has no intentions of working hard.
    Why would a label waste a single peso on someone who feels no way about saying “I don’t want Beyonce’s career.”
    You don’t want to be a success? Ok honey, you got you wish.

  25. Chillin March 19, 2014

    There was never an official report that she was dropped..it was simply a rumor..and we all know “RUMORS ARE AS DUMB AS THE PEOPLE WHO STARTED THEM, AND AS FAKE AS THE PEOPLE WHO SPREAD THEM”….haha…im laughing at all the dummies in here

  26. WeAreLambily March 19, 2014

    Kelly’s stans are just as delusional as she is. The report was obvs written by someone close to her team which is why they’re saying she wasn’t dropped. It’s in their INTERESTS to pretend as though the ball was in her court and that’s why TGJ, who are her biggest supporters, put this up to try and fool us into believing it.

    Let’s call a spade a spade, Kelly doesn’t want to be a star so we should stop dragging her laziness and let her be.

  27. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me March 19, 2014

    Dropped or not, she better not try to go the independent Ashanti route. She clearly needs a team with lots of money and time, and someone needs to whoop he ass into gear. She didn’t perform one time on X-Factor? Are you kidding me….

  28. BeachHouseBritney March 19, 2014

    You were dropped dear.

  29. Ty ty (ghetto gothic dance queen) March 19, 2014

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see she was dropped but tryna cover it up with a cute excuse… She’s Kelly Rowland someone who was apart of Beyonces group of course she’s not gonna admit to getting dropped, And honestly she probably knew she would be gettin dropped if talk a good game flopped thats why she stooped to releasing dirty laundry as a single as the last resort to get people talking / buying the album think about it.

  30. Chillin March 19, 2014

    I’m glad to see all the attention my favorite Lady is receiving today…LOL…Stay Mad haters Say Mad..as we fans await Kelly’s new album..Keep the comments rolling!!!

  31. ashley March 19, 2014

    “The situation is alleged to have become ultra tense when Rowland signed on to be a judge for the third season of ‘The X Factor‘. According to Murray “her team asked the label to release a new single to capitalize off the eight million viewers the show averaged each week. The label chose not to capitalize off of Rowland’s involvement on the show and the singer asked to be released from her contact”.”

    Read this part and comprehend it! This makes so much sense. I’m pretty sure promoting her album was her MAIN intention for joining the show. Kelly is far from lazy

  32. DIAMONDS March 19, 2014

    Ciara’s ass is next

  33. BanjeeRiri March 19, 2014

    Kelly is giving me Shonda Rhimes authenticity with this fiction she be writing.

  34. Yas Hunty March 19, 2014

    Lmfao, every time an artist gets dropped they want to say, “I left my record label.” Kellys 5 stand wouldn’t go buy her album, but stan for her on blogs and talk crap about every other female artist. Lmao, Kelly flops on ever label she’s been signed to, don’t blame the record labels for your mediocre music and your lazy áss promo.

    Kelly is boring with her “one hit per year career”. She overrated as far as her bland music go anyway.

    Rita ora and Azealia banks is next if you wanna be REAL.

  37. Sarah March 19, 2014

    And you dont have to be a rocket scientist to see that she wasn’t dropped… If Christina Millian is still signed to Universal Republic and she was flat lined from day one..its CLEAR Kelly left..Kelly will always be relevant..and we can thank Thatgrapejuice and its honorary haters for that!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

  38. Mark111 March 19, 2014

    @kim Kardashian Stan

    Oh, I forgot, lol. Well she better wait when Bey is done for the 2017 DC album.

    @Chillin, no one is mad, better yet, no one freaking cares for Kelly. Sorry, but she’s weak and lazy. Who ask to be let go? If a label want you, they’re not gonna let you go. You’re gonna sit for 6 years without am album and then they have to let you go. Ask JoJo. Kelly was dropped.

    • OH March 19, 2014

      Then why is ashanti still signed to label…SIT

      • OH March 19, 2014

        to the* same label

  39. QueenCeline March 19, 2014

    I’m telling you, these celebs think we’re so stupid. Like you’re gonna sit there and tell us you left your label when we all know you were dropped? I love you Kelly but it feels like you’d rather be on Miami beach than at the top of your career.

  40. Lamb4life March 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hiv is really DELUSIONAL sayin Kelly is the lead r&b female when she doesn’t even have a platinum album, go sit in a corner little girl.

    • slay_hive March 19, 2014

      B**** you are really BLIND and DUMB. I said she is ONE of the leading R&B artists of the present. Read and comprehend baby. I’m not talking about her not having a platinum album in the past. I’m speaking of her current accomplishments, which are the same as her R&B peers current sales.

  41. WhenItComesToBey March 19, 2014

    You must be higher than giraffe p**** if you believe this.

  42. Lamb4life March 19, 2014

    So she got dropped and according to her 3 fans we are mad?

  43. Mileys movement March 19, 2014

    @SlayHive Keyshia cole woman to woman sold 400k and Girl on fire sold 700k so what you talking bout?

    • slay_hive March 19, 2014

      Alicia is an R&B superstar. Her sales have dropped tremendously. Which is not a good look for her. As far as Keyshia selling 400,000. Ok and? Kelly still got to 200,000 without promoting and releasing as many singles as Keyshia. If she would have capitalized off of XFactor her album would have doubled that 200k. Which is the reason she chose to leave her record label. We’ll have to agree to disagree. 😉

  44. TisForTamar March 19, 2014

    Not Kelly giving Beyond Belief Fact or Fiction tease today.

  45. Mark111 March 19, 2014

    The woman don’t even have a solo gold album. You’re telling me that labels want her? lol

    I bet even Roc Nation doesn’t even want her. She’s in her 30’s and haven’t even sold a million albums and only had one big hit in 10 years. DONE.

  46. Chillin March 19, 2014

    “Flop, Lazy, Irrelevant, Horse Face..ummm what else can i think of ….oh yeah Boring”….Kelly always had the same words behind her since 2002 and yet she is still here and QUITE relevant collaborating with Chris Brown, Pusha T, Sean Paul, Pitbull, R. Kelly, Ludacris and Young Jeezy on their respective albums in the past year & a half…..Sorry to disappoint all the people that are mad at Kelly..but Kelly will ALWAYS be around..and thats a FACT..and like Sarah said thanks to ALL the haters in here and else where..do you realize that you keep her in the spotlight…THANK YOU guys!!

  47. 1D>>>>YourLife March 19, 2014

    Lies everywhere.

  48. Mileys movement March 19, 2014

    Only reason people give Kelly a chance is because of her association with Beyonce.

  49. taqueria arandas March 19, 2014

    Yall pressed as hell, Its classic Management vs Label… Has nothing to do with talent.

    I bet yall didnt think about the fact that Universal Republic has direct ties to “the VOICE”, so Kelly shining on the “XFactor” is a conflict on interest… Kelly’s Management sees her as an enduring personality, The label saw her as a artist only. The problem is Kelly let her management dictate her moves too much, she relied heavily on Matthew and now Tim the same way… She needs management she’s not emotionally connected with, it distracts the business plan… She’s put her neck on line twice for XFactor and they screwed her albums over twice…

    • Chillin March 19, 2014

      Thank you…these people are just as dumb as they seem to be…how pathetic

    • Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) March 19, 2014

  50. MadameBey March 19, 2014

    “Still here since 2002” You want us to give her a cookie for not dying?

  51. Chillin March 19, 2014

    @MARK111 Of course you care..you are here on a Kelly Rowland post..and you posted more than 3 times..awwwww we know your a Kelly Rowland fan by heart..its ok..

  52. Chillin March 19, 2014

    @madamebey perhaps she can buy a tray and serve it to all the haters in here..whats your favorite type of cookie?

  53. TRUTHKILLA March 19, 2014

    Doesnt make any sense what yall saying !!!! When she was dropped by Columbia, she said she was dropped because the label wasnt happy with sales etc. Why would she lie now ?? to impress you???

    Everybody flapping gum talking bout she lazy, b**** after you record an amazing album “TALK A GOOD GAME” its up to the label to promote and market. There is no artist out there doing there doing their own promo (until your indie)

    P.S Thats the whole point of a record label is to DISTRIBUTE MARKET & PROMOTE the music, the artist job is to make great music and clearly the music wasnt the problem.

    Most of you dont even know s*** about the industry, how label operate or what a record contract look like so SHUT THE F*** UP !!!!!

    • Chillin March 19, 2014

      THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally someone who is talking with sense and not acting ignorant..or maybe its just not an act..maybe they are just ignorant.

  54. Alex March 19, 2014

    Thank goodness. Republic have actually been HORRIFIC in promoting her. She was everywhere in 2013 and they just refused to capitalize on anything. Upwards from here! #RowlandStone

  55. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    This part though

    The situation is alleged to have become ultra tense when Rowland signed on to be a judge for the third season of ‘The X Factor‘. According to Murray “her team asked the label to release a new single to capitalize off the eight million viewers the show averaged each week. The label chose not to capitalize off of Rowland’s involvement on the show and the singer asked to be released from her contact”.

    She was in front of 16 million viewers on X Factor UK and Here I FLOP sold 8K. Universal Republic knew it was a project bound to fail, and they were right.

    • Jeff March 19, 2014

      Here I Am actually sold 18,000 first week so get your numbers correct. It has also been certified silver by BPI. That means sold more than 60k reported 88k in total. Most albums that have gone top #5 haven’t sold that many, It was Christmas for crying out loud.

  57. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    And I’m surprised (no I’m not) at how easy they let her go; that shows she was pretty much a going concern.

    I’m pretty sure they wanted to drop her from the start; or they did and this is just PR.

  58. Molly March 19, 2014

    @FutureCiara Kiiiiiiiiii i hear Taco bell is hiring we know Kellys a low budget b**** so she won’t mind #EngagedOverSkype.

    And please, which label will put money behind Kelly? Columbia tried and they failed, Universal Republic tried and they failed.

    She’ll sign with Atlantic thanks to Trey Songz d*** sucking game; they are friends after all.

    BTW Kelly, who’s paying for that studio time?

    • kb3 March 19, 2014

      Kelly is loved in the industry ..even LA Ried wants to work with her..as well as several Artist…an artist can do so much and if ifmA label decides not to officially send your song to radio..its not the artist fault ..it cost tons of money to send songs to all formats..gone “in antipation of its realese started to get added but once it failed to go official radio dropped it…NO AMOUNT OF SELF PROMOTION can help a song get radio airplay..it Has to be sent..

  62. Polo March 19, 2014

    Had soooo much potential now she is spiraling down the celebrity alphabet kiiiiii her affiliation with Beyoncé and past work with Destiny Childs is her saving grace or else she would be a non motherfücking factor

  63. jillian March 19, 2014

    Beyhive maybe if u stopped shading other artists B will get more fans& sale as a dele and Taylor , I love me some B but u new beyhive r the worst. Vici stans when your fav. Sale as much as Kelly’s solo career I will respond to your jealousy comments. Regarding her label either dropped or not TAAG was the best R&D album in 2013 who 2 blame for sales I don’t know the full story to judge her.

  64. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) March 19, 2014

    I’m glad Kelly left them. I knew they didn’t respect her when they shaded her on Twitter during Here I Am era and then deleted the tweet. I figured something was wrong when someone from her team said they chose “Gone” as the third single but then hinted it was the label who was hindering it’s release to radio. Also, Kelly’s team does need some work. They need to learn how to promote efficiently and she also needs to stop releasing videos 6 months after the song’s debut. TAGG was a flawless album. It didn’t deserve to under perform the way it did. I hope this third label will be the charm that she needs. I’m ready for whatever Kelly has in store!

    Side note: Haters, shut the hell up. You guys probably don’t have jobs. Call Kelly a flop all you want, she still does and always will have more in her bank account than you and will continue to enjoy her life having a label or not. If you don’t like Kelly, stop wasting time out of your life to comment. Jackass.

  65. Molly March 19, 2014

    She released dirty laundry lookin for sympathy sales and it failed now she will be serving fish plates poor Kelly.

  66. Chillin March 19, 2014

    LMAOOO Can we take the Ciara emoticons serious on this website..i wouldnt even grace you with the title of stan..as you make us Ciara fans look bad….You are the reason people hate her on this blog..or maybe you are too dumb to understand that Molly & FutureCiara.

  67. Sarah March 19, 2014

    DEATH @ the Ciara stans laughing at Kelly…Kelly is worth twice as much as Ciara…and If Kelly works at Taco Bell..where does that leave Ciara..at the Taco Cabanna…aka a family owned business..cant even afford a franchise

  68. TRUTHKILLA March 19, 2014

    When an album flops and the material isnt the problem as in this case, usually the problem stems from the label ability to market and promote the the album, it really has nothing to do with the artist. Success of a good album lies in promotion. You have to pump in millions to make millions. Universal republic have very limited resources especially for an artist of Kelly’s magnitude. Kelly needs a label with a big promo budget. If you know anything about the industry you would know that PROMO IS EVERTHING !

    it as simple as :
    BIG PROMO BUDGET = BIG SUCCESS / SMALL PROMO BUDGET = SMALL SUCCESS

  69. music March 19, 2014

    @Mark111 actually Kelly Rowland’s debut album went gold

  70. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Hold up, are Kelly fans trying to shade Ciara when Kelly is JOBLESS whilst Ciara STILL HAS HER RECORD DEAL.

    As of right now, Kelly is Ciara’s lessor.

    BTW, Ciara; 2 platinum albums
    Kelly; ZERO platinum albums.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      Kelly’s Bank Account 30 Million
      Ciara’s Bank Account 15 million

      Ciara 1 Grammy
      Kelly 4 Grammy’s

      BTW One Line………Basic Instinct …….

      No need to say anymore

  71. Molly March 19, 2014

    Girl after clinging to Beyonce c*** for 18 years Kelly should be atleast worth 60 million, Kelly is the biggest disappointment in music she never had a successful r&b era like Ciara Ashanti Keyshia Monica Brandy Etc the b**** only succeeds in a group she can’t stand on her own as an artist thats truly pathetic.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      and Ciara is only worth 15 after 2 Platinum Albums..DEATH!!!!

  72. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Poor Kelly

    DROPPED by Columbia
    DROPPED by Universal Republic

    I think this is a HINT!!!

  73. Molly March 19, 2014

    @Lovebird better clock their T baby, Ciara can stand on her own as a artist can Kelly say the samething? No! Kelly Stans are a joke.

  74. DGAF March 19, 2014

    I bet you the record label will not say she left. I be they say they dropped her. This is her and her PR people trying to spin this into a positive thing.

  75. OH March 19, 2014

    you mean 3 times?

  76. DGAF March 19, 2014

    If this were any artists that TGJ doesn’t like, Mariah or Rhianna for example, they would be talking so much s***. Since TGJ likes Kelly of course they are going to say she left.

  77. Chillin March 19, 2014

    Keep the comments rolling!!!!!!! We Love the attention!!!!

  78. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Basic instinct; gurl the Evolution alone has outsold Kelly’s entire Albumography.

    You can combine all 4 of Kelly’s flop album and that has still sold LESS than The Evolution.

    • Chillin March 19, 2014

      Actually ……. Simply Deep has 3 million WW sales followed by Miss Kelly with 2 million WW…where does Ciara sit on the world charts..oh right….she isnt international (plays Like a Boy)

  79. summertime sadness March 19, 2014

    Hasn’t this flop been dropped 3 times now Lmao. Rosie gonna drag this horse can’t wait.

  80. Polo March 19, 2014

    She still can’t stand on her own 15 years in the game (really who else is an opening act on a tour when they are supposed to be a veteran?) Who else can’t perform alone? Her last album wasn’t even a huge success and took forever to pass 200k in sales in the US. She’s not big in the UK, she’s a flop over there as well with her sales. ‘Here I Am’ album has been a commercial disaster across the board. All that Beyonce àss kissing and her album still couldn’t sell. She opened up for Chris Brown a few years ago and then went on a flop tour with The Dream because they both can’t sell albums.

  81. Molly March 19, 2014

    Kelly been in the industry since the 90s she should be worth more then Ciara but tell me how Beyonce is worth 350 million and Kelly 30 million when they were in the same group and had the same opportunities.

  82. Sarah March 19, 2014

    And yet Ciara is only worth $15 million dollars and Kelly is worth twice as much and has 3 times more Grammy’s than Ciara has…….

    Can you do the math on that..or naaaa..you will just continue to dig up Ciara’s old life..because if you want to go there I havent even touched her DC credentials yet sweetie..but we can if you wish

  83. kimbella March 19, 2014

    Has Kelly sold a million albums in America yet? i mean she has one gold album and the rest all struggle for 200k?

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      What does selling in America as opposed to selling worldwide have to do with anything? Coins honey, Coins…We gettin Arab moneyyyyyy

  84. kimbella March 19, 2014

    A lot of people talking crap yet the Kelly stans are only replying to Ciara fans Lmao h*** are scared

  85. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Gurl Sarah give it a rest, Ciara STILL HAS HER RECORD DEAL, Kelly has just been DROPPED.

    End of discussion.

    Instead of clocking 38549393 TGJ comments per minute, help Kelly to finally reach the 1 million albums sold mark.

    • Molly March 19, 2014

      Lmao i love you.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      @lovebird LMAOOOOOOOO and Kelly is still worth more money than Ciara..so what is your point…Ciara has a record deal and her last album still sold WAY less than Kelly “no Record Deal” Rowland..how pathetic is that LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  86. Polo March 19, 2014

    According to Kelly stans they claim Kelly has a strong fan base in the UK hmmm looks like that’s LIE. She flopped in the Uk with her last album and ‘Talk a good game’. Anyone can overshadow Kelly Rowland sad but true. She knew her album was gonna flop when J. Cole & Kanye announced their release dates and shes a Flop overseas. I guess being half naked on her album cover couldn’t save her lmao. Brandy even told Kelly to stop obsessing over Beyonce that’s why they had a falling out years ago.. She has to sing about s** in order to score another “motivation”. She flopped her implants on the cover of her CD and her albums flopped with them

  87. Molly March 19, 2014

    Lmao DC credentials? like i said Kelly can’t stand on her own go head pull em out, but were talking bout Kelly the solo artist not the band member, DC didn’t get dropped Kelly Rowland did face facts Kelly isn’t shitt as a solo artist.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      Ok Miss Molly..so are we talking about Ciara post Basic Instinct or Pre Basic Instinct..Help me out??

  88. Sarah March 19, 2014

    @lovebird LMAOOOOOOOO and Kelly is still worth more money than Ciara..so what is your point…Ciara has a record deal and her last album still sold WAY less than Kelly “no Record Deal” Rowland..how pathetic is that LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  89. Matthew Charlery-Smith March 19, 2014

    As much as Kelly’s team may be telling the truth there’s a consistent thread of denial that accompanies Kelly Rowland and most RnB acts that can no longer sell albums. Kelly herself FAILED to keep momentum for her own project. During the Here I Am saga it’s somewhat understandable that the album’s promo was disjointed due to the fact when “When Love Takes Over” and “Commander” came out Kelly wasn’t signed so there was no label to issue an album from. The buzz of those singles came and went. Then Motivation dropped early 2011 and rather than go on a plethora of promo stops for it and follow it up with steady singles/videos she only did Kimmel and BET, dropped the video late and then dropped the 2nd video “Lay It On Me” in November. This was disastrous. Here I Am became “Here I Should’ve Been”. But Kelly hasn’t acknowledged that.

    We as fans thought a glimmer of hope was coming when “Ice” was released but there were no performances for it at the time and the single died a death. The same went for “Kisses” and “Dirty Laundry”. During this time Kelly communicated nothing with her fanbase and had no high profile shows except “Black Girls Rock” which came FAR too late.

    She is a millionaire so what exactly stops her from making her own videos, booking her own stages and funding her own projects?

    She tried to sell that whole album (which was really good RnB) on exploiting s** (as she constantly does) and Beyonce’s sisterhood on Dirty Laundry. The worst two songs on the album. Hopefully this will make her think about her next moves. She was giving us Kylie with the Dance music of Here I Am yet she coveted America and dumped the UK and Australia which really are the ones that kept her name and sales afloat.

    She may need to go the Ashanti route. If she’s expecting everyone on her label to back her she’s stuck in a world of entitlement and doesn’t seem to have yet got the clue…didn’t even Beyonce sing in one of her new songs “I don’t trust these labels”.

    Hopefully she’ll also rethink what it means to be a Christian. Tired of these artists cursing and spewing all types of profanity in their work then wanting to talk about how much “God is in my life”. Seems like God wasn’t interested in the album!

  90. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    SCREAMING!!!! at Kelly is worth $30 million or whatever.

    If she is “worth” that much, why did she get paid LESS than Demi on X Factor? In fact why was she the LOWEST paid judge on the show?

    Where was her “worth” as a bargaining tool then?

  91. Polo March 19, 2014

    If it wasn’t for Beyoncè Kelly wouldn’t be worth shît. Would Kelly be where she is right now if she had never met Beyonce ? NO.. Kelly has Beyonce’s name in her mouth 24/7 and clung to beyonce for fame. Ciara didn’t do that. Michelle & Kelly would be irrelevant without Beyonce. Keyshia Cole, Ciara & other singers ddn’t have to cling to Beyonce like Kelly.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      This is the dumbest comment in history..I guess you have a time machine..or you can predict the future…

  92. Me March 19, 2014

    Why are you all comparing Kelly Rowland with other humans? I don’t understand… Dons’t everyone have their own paths, goals, achievements and careers. Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Brandy, Tamar Braxton etc… are all beautiful talented woman with all complete different qualities.

    Kelly always stood up for girl power, It’s DISGUSTING AND DISGRACEFUL to see you all try to tear that down. SHAME on you all!

  93. Chillin March 19, 2014

    @MATTHEW CHARLERY-SMITH I RESPECT your commentary…this is the type of comments that should be happening..these immature kids on here are disgusting and a disgrace to music!

      Thanks! What do you think she should do next?

  94. Sarah March 19, 2014

    You people kill me on here..LOLOLOL dumb as ever

  95. Molly March 19, 2014

    @Polo yes!!!!!!! state them facts Kelly wouldn’t be s*** without Beyonce.

  96. Polo March 19, 2014

    Kelly is the prime example of people who have low self esteem and think that hanging with the right clique can get you a spot! She trashed Letoya and Latavia back in the day and didn’t even TRY to secure HER OWN spot! She thought she was better off than them.
    The same birds who always jumping to hype her up ARE NOT buying her music go figure…lol…I just can’t.

  97. Keri Krew Kween March 19, 2014

    Lets be real, they were going to drop her anyways. Promoting on X Factor wouldn’t have saved her. That show did nothing for her and had the lowest ratings between The Voice and American Idol. Plenty of acts performed material on X Factor and their singles went no where. Once again, Kelly’s issue is promo. A performance on The Voice would’ve been more beneficial then her entire stint on X Factor which is being canceled due to poor ratings. Trying to use Dirty Laundry and Beyonce’s name was a bad move too

  98. Sarah March 19, 2014

    Way to go Kelly…you even got Keri Hilson to chime in!!!! Who’s next to join the conversation…I see Molly & Lovebird called for reinforcements…LOL..I love it!!

  103. lurker March 19, 2014

    For those stating that Kelly only has 3 stans….Not every Kelly Rowland fan posts on this site. Some actually like to read without commenting or replying to ignorant posters (Ciara fans). its also pretty evident that many of the people talking down about her knows nothing about her. You people undermine her achievements by comparing her to Beyonce. If you compared anyone to beyonce theyre going to look as if they got nowhere. Without associating her with Beyonce its obvious that she is one of the most successful rnb acts out today. People like to forget that she didnt start off as a solo artist or a lead act. She has came far. She is much more successful than Tamar, Ciara, k Michelle, etc. She She may be labeless at the moment but she will find her way. #rowlandstone

  104. My Forehead Tho March 19, 2014

    People can call her a flop all they want, but every 2-3 years she comes out with a smash hit. With songs like Dilemma, When Love Takes Over and Motivation, she’s proven that she has the potential to be a huge commercial success; she just needs to work with the right people and promote the album for more than a week.

    She shouldn’t have a hard time getting signed to another label.

  105. KING B March 19, 2014

    her first album is certified golld tho

  106. Sarah March 19, 2014

    Damn ..FINALLY some sensible folks commenting..This is refreshing! Kelly has been in this business long enough..and im sure she knows the INS & OUTS…Cheers to making this new album a F*CKING banger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Justsaying March 19, 2014

      Sarah you’re always posting on these Kelly Rowland blogs, but did you take the time out to get her album and support her? and when I say get her album I mean legally.

  107. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    Not Cirrelevant stans talking, when TAGG SOLD MORE THAN Ciflop and TAGG wasn’t even promoted lmmfaooooooo. Also Kelly is known WW solo, while Citranny is an local certified flop. Most countries only remember her duet with JT.

  108. DIAMONDS March 19, 2014

  109. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Not Kelly stand shading Ciara with TAGG when Here I FLOP sold 8K in the UK with an X Factor UK weekly plug to 16 million viewers.

    @DIGGERBEY whos that t***** in your avi?

  111. DIAMONDS March 19, 2014

    I love Kelly she should of really promoted her album it wasn’t bad at all she could of at least went gold i do wish her the best and will stay supporting her

  112. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Why are Kelly fans so delusional. Kelly is being outsold by Ariana Grande and Tamar Braxton and has no platinum album after 10+ years in the industry, and let’s not forget has been DROPPED by two labels now.

  113. Sarah March 19, 2014

    @lovebird……We keep going back to this one Line..BASIC INSTINCT!! How much did that sell again??? and FYI Down For Whatever was a success in the UK..the song she performed on UK Xfactor…once again..do you research booboo…or do i need to school you once again??

  114. Sarah March 19, 2014

    @Lovebird has Basic Instinct even hit the 50,000 mark yet LMAOOOO or even a single that charted..CHILD BOO!!

  115. xedos March 19, 2014

    don’t try to spin it.is she was an asset to the label, they would not let her out of her contract this easy. she got cut. she’s always blaming someone for her failures. it use to be Matthew now its the label. How you’re going to ask the label to spend more money on a next single when the ones before did not do anything? no label exec is going to put their job in limbo for Kelly. how would the exec explain that to the board?

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      You definitely got it right..Clearly she wasnt pulling in HUGE numbers for the label…but thats the point..She wanted to leave and she was allowed to..difference in being fired baby..Its called life..if something isnt working the way you want it to..then you find other avenues….Maybe you should grow up

  116. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    Correct @ My Forehead……Kelly is always landing an hit. Its just her not promoting the project and keeping those singles flowing. Kelly probably already found an home. When she parted ways with Columbia with Ms. Kelly. There really wasn’t any hype surrounding Kelly’s career. But she has it now! Kelly is that b*tch in R&B! The fact KDL was certified gold and she barely promoted it. Most R&B artist can’t see success like KDL unless it crosses over to the pop charts or promote it everywhere. Kelly will be Gucci! She’s an Survivor! This sh*t want Stop her! #WAIT & SEE

  117. Polo March 19, 2014

    All of her songs sound so redundant. Could she at least evolve a bit and get a little bit more creative? Even the beats in the arrangement of her music and her rifts are sounding the same. That song she had out with future was straight trash and autotuned bullshyt…And how many songs does she have to put out with Lil Wayne ‘ uglyass just to get a hit?

    She doesn’t care about her career and says she’s in her own lane because she knows she’d be last in line if she was to join anybody else’s race. At the end of the day, she’s been solo for over ten years and doesn’t have her own number album or good album sales

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      @polo what are you talking about?? Your right..her album sales were hideous ..but Kelly sells RECORDS..do some research on Kelendria Rowland the SOLO act..She has sold over 24 million records worldwide………

  118. IStanForYourFav March 19, 2014

    If this was Rihanna, Mariah, hell even Whitney, this article word be the shadiest article ever written.

    ANYWAY,
    This is so disappointing to here. I’m sure it was conflict of interest that gave them the green light to drop her. If any artist in the world showed you how to leave a label while flopping it’s Mimi. (30 million) Shakira, Beyoncé,Mariah, and a few more weren’t resigned or dropped from a label. Brandy’s advice was right. Kelly lets Beyoncé run her world Brandy has been floating from label to label since 2004, yet that doesn’t stop her music nor does it stop her grind (The Game BET). Tamar (even with her overshadowing Legendary Toni Braxton as her blood sister), K. Michelle (certified gold according to Wiki), and other over the top personalities have found a way to build them a true fan base, grind with their tiny budgets, and get checks.. see my point? If she has to use a 360 deal temporarily to get a record deal, then handle it. Nicki Minaj is on a 360, deal. She went platinum with a bunch of multi million dollar endorsements. Nothing but checks and fame. Kelly made a song called Heaven N Earth… She needs to replay that song, and gets hers if not she will fall into the Lil Kim, Fat Joe released from their label situation. Love you Kelly. I wish nothing but the best for you. You’re too beautiful and talented for this to hold you down.

    Are you going to talk about Basic Instinct when you can combine Mz Flopy, Here I flop, Flop a good game abd whatever that other album was and still not come up with Ciara’s album sales.

    Ciara hasn’t got a track record of FLOPS like Kelly.

    *plays when love takes over*

  121. xedos March 19, 2014

    if she was working on her next album,who pay for it? why did the label pay for it and if they do, why would they drop her or release her from her contract after spending money.

  122. Polo March 19, 2014

    Tons of producers have been sending her songs but she keeps passing on them because she thinks these overused producers like Timbo and Ne-Yo are going to give her a hit.. UM NO b****- they’re automatically giving their hits to your sis BEY and she’s even turning the generic tracks down to work with new producers. She needs to follow suit. Her music is generic & repetitive as fûck.

    Do you think Kelly’s career is in a good place?

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      Honestly I am SUPER DUPER ECSTATIC for this new venture!!! And Yes i think her career is in a GREAT place..Kelly has built her stardom and relevance in America as a solo act to a place she has never seen. Like a hip hop artist recently said “The streets Love Kelly Rowland”..and at this point in her career i think people are now seeing her worth..So I am EXTREMELY proud of her..She is moving in the right direction..She couldve easily faded away..and be that “ex Destiny’s Child member” that MOST of the haters want to see her be..But she is now the stunning, talented & brown skin Kelly Rowland

  144. Rosie March 19, 2014

    Yes, the Z-Squad is a mess. They’ve been feeling themselves since Local Party charted and went top 30 in one country and since I’m Out (of the Charts) debuted at #44 because of the EBT Awards. It all came crashing down as soon as #57K happened.

    I wouldn’t be so quick to laugh at Ciara. Body Party sold more in six months than Kisses Down Low did in two years. Don’t forget that BP scanned half a million and KDL sold 245,000 and was CERTIFIED gold because of shipments because her label requested it.

    Guess they weren’t so bad after all.

    • TaylorKnows March 19, 2014

      So true.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      I Wasnt comparing Body Party to Kisses Down Low..i was comparing it to Motivation..seeing that is Ciara’s biggest hit in recent years..as is it’s Kelly’s

      • Molly March 19, 2014

        Kelly hasn’t had a hit in 3 years Ciara last one was less then 6 months ago you’re dismissed

  156. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    The ciara fans calling anyone a flop is just too hilarious to me

  157. Mc!!! March 19, 2014

    I thought Kelly left universal a lonnnng time ago! But its sad because talk a good game had some hits!! O well

  158. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Kisses Down Low was just released last year this time. Where did you get two years from honey?

    • TamartianNavi March 19, 2014

      So it hasn’t sold 300k after one year? I can’t and I won’t.

      • slay_hive March 19, 2014

        doesn’t matter RIAA has it CERTIFIED gold. You can and you will accept that 😉

    • Molly March 19, 2014

      wasn’t it released in 2012?

      • slay_hive March 19, 2014

        kii Are you serious Molly? It was released in 2013, the album followed in the summer of that year

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      THANK YOU!! Kisses Down Low was released February 1, 2013 ..and it has sold over 500,000 copies – hence its Gold Certification

  159. Aguilera’sHeart March 19, 2014

    I have nothing to say about Kelly, she’s been in the game for almost twenty years and is still on opening act status. Her US sales don’t even come to 1 million and she’s never even embarked on a successful national tour.

  160. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Never mind FLOPness down low, I’m more interested in knowing when Kelly will get a platinum album, Ciara has TWO.

  161. Molly March 19, 2014

    Look at my c squad dragging this horse faced bitchh good job girls good job.

  162. Xoxo March 19, 2014

    Jigga and bey won’t sign her cuz they don’t like black girls
    Unless u light skin….check all females he signed…0 dark skin

  163. FentySoSnatched March 19, 2014

    I’m usually the first to drag Ciara but I can’t believe Kelly fans think they’re in any position to drag her. Ciara can look back at The Evolution and Goodies and be proud and can even look at her flop eras and be proud of the videos and choreography. What’s Kelly’s legacy? What will she be remembered for?

  164. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    @Molly

    Its effortless when it comes to Kelly stans and @Rosie

  165. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Kelly has been dropped by TWO LABELS now; not Sony’s fault, not Matthew’s fault, not Universal Republic’s fault; it is HER.

    But of course Kelly always looking for someone to blame.

    Here’s an idea Kelly, apply to be a cleaner at the Carter’s mansion seeing that you do such a fantastic job cleaning Mrs Carter’s butthole with your tongue.

    You give Solange a run for her Money for the biggest Beyonce booty cleaner; take it on full time babe.

  166. Molly March 19, 2014

    @FutureCiara Agreeed and i love your new avi its everything.

  167. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Speaking of Solange, hell Solange can go on a free laundromat tour which comes with a free spin cycle, rinse and tumble dry for a whopping $2.00 a load + Solange’s nasal struggling vocals; are you telling me Kelly can’t even go on one?

  168. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    Just………… Gorl.

  169. Molly March 19, 2014

    Does Kelly have one memorable era? naah

  170. haha March 19, 2014

    This will be a part of Kelly’s legacy and will be remembered more than anything Ciara has attempted to accomplish

    http://youtu.be/8XiwqR1aqp4

    • BeyBeyKing March 19, 2014

      How sad. You said this is what Kelly will be remembered for and it’s Beyonce that’s holding the mic.

      • Ariana’sGrand March 19, 2014

        What kind of self drag?

    • FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

      @HAHA

      FAIL!!!!

  171. Molly March 19, 2014

    Kelly better beg and pray roc nation signs her.

  172. PaulAllah Slaydul March 19, 2014

    Kelly fans are only hurting themselves by saying she’s doing well so just ignore them.

  173. Molly March 19, 2014

    Ciara > Kelly Nowhereland

    C Squad > Whatever Kellys non factor fans are called.

  174. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    @Molly

    Thanks baby…

    Its not showing up on my browser yet….

    But I love the pic… Its from her recent W Magazine photo shoot.

  175. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Are Kelly fans clinging to Destiny’s Child when Beyonce and the hive made it clear that DC accolades are Beyonce’s and Beyonce’s alone, and Kelly isn’t worth s*** to DC, by adding up DC sales to Beyonce’s and cropping Kelly out of pics.

    You Kelly fans side with a broad and a fan base who shade you on the down low, I cannot.

  176. Jasmine March 19, 2014

    I honestly think Kelly fans are more delusions then Ciara fans.

  177. DeruloDreamer March 19, 2014

    Are we really debating who is better than Ciara and Kelly? Please don’t. PLEASE don’t. Kelly has NEVER put half as much effort into anything as Ciara does when she’s at her best.

  178. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Didn’t TAGG outsell Ciara with less promo?…….. I’m just saying, the ciara fans should be the last to make flop jokes, when their fave will more than likely be dropped soon. kii

  179. Sarah March 19, 2014

    YESSSSSSSS!! Come on comments!! Over 200…Keep it coming folks!! What will Ciara be remembered for?? Basic FLOP & Being one of THREE of Future’s Baby Momma’s…LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..I enjoy dragging the C List-Squad..

  180. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Gurl Roc Nation is not signing Kelly so stop it. She’s signing with Atlantic thanks to Trey’s d*** sucking game.

  181. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Didn’t the Evolution outsell Kelly’s entire discography? And that’s not Ciara’s biggest era. Dismissed.

  182. TruthAboutPink March 19, 2014

    Trust a Kelly stan to think certifications are based on sales. Kelly’s only sold 245,000 copies of KDL but got certified at the end of the last year, she has NOT sold half a million.

  183. Slayriah March 19, 2014

    Ciara at her best slays tf outta Kelly at her best end of the day Ciara has had way more success as a solo artist then Kelly.

  184. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    Kelly is Ciara’s lessor!!!

    So YES we are entitled to call her a FLOP BIOTCH!!

  185. anonymous March 19, 2014

    well whatever label kelly goes with next, I wish her good luck.

  186. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Ciara is THE lessor. The only thing her fans can cling to is her accomplishements from ten years ago! LOL

    TAGG outsold CIARA(with all of that promo, and that “hit” gold single”

    Why is that?

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      I bet you they can’t answer that!! LMAO!

  187. Sarah March 19, 2014

    @TRUTHABOUTPINK oh so now you work for RIAA ..LMAO I CANNOT!!! Its amazing how Ciara’s life doesn’t get attention on her own posts..she has to come on to Kelly’s relevant post to get some attention… Keep the comments coming 😀 😀 😀 😀

    • KissesForKelly March 19, 2014

      Wait, please don’t bite my head off but it’s true. Kelly hasn’t sold half a mill on KDL.

  188. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    When Ciara gets dropped, that will be an EPIC drag fest! kii

  189. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    Their hits
    Goodies
    Oh
    1 2 step
    Like a boy
    Promise
    Love S** and Magics
    Body party

    Motivation
    Dilemma

    mind you i didn’t mention all of Ciaras

  190. HausMuthaAdele March 19, 2014

    I hate to join this shade fest but Ciara is miles better than Kelly. That is all.

  191. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    Didn’t Kelly fans just cling to Destiny’s Child? What self drag.

    And Ciara has done something that her fans can cling to; what has Kelly done besides back to back FLOPS?

  192. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hive better stfu before @FutureCiara drags that ass again

  193. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    kii Iconic Cici you are futureCiara baby, and the b**** didn’t drag s***. She knows her place

  194. Sarah March 19, 2014

    Clinging on to no’ones past…Why didn’t “Ciara” outsell “Talk a Good Game”??

  195. WhenItComesToBey March 19, 2014

    The real joke is that everything we say here is relevant. Ciara still has a deal and still has proof that she used to be on top and all Kelly has is Destiny’s Child. I don’t have to diss or shade Kelly because she does that to herself every time she fools herself into believing she’s doing well.

  196. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    Death a slay_hive defending flopland because it Hates Ciara, anyone with common sense knows Ciara slays her. btw Ciara wont be getting dropped boo.

    • Sarah March 19, 2014

      HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! ..Great minds think alike!!

      • slay_hive March 19, 2014

        LOOOOOOL I see! I had to take a second look when I was scrolling

  197. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    @Slut_Hive doesnt want a day w me….

    She learned THAT day

    • iconic cici March 19, 2014

      Yess you dragged her stupid ass and made her go into hiding for awhile

  198. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    LOL I like Kelly honey. She can actually SING! If Miss Cierror keeps pulling in 57k she will DEFINITELY be dropped. Better luck next time. she’ll need it 😉

  199. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    FutureCiara is that true honey? What you waiting for girl? DRAG ON!!!! kii

  200. Sarah March 19, 2014

    The TEA is..you cannot fire a pregnant lady! ..Ciara got knocked up on purpose…LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…how pathetic

  201. BaddieBey March 19, 2014

    I had no idea Kelly fans were this delusional. Besides the BET Awards, which other awards shows has Kelly performed at. Doesn’t it worry you that she’s never even performed at the VMAs or the Grammys as a solo performer?

  202. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    What is hilarious is Ciara STILL has a record deal, Kelly has been DROPPED. That is hilarious.

    • BeyWhoUWanna March 19, 2014

      That’s the sad part of it all. The Kelly fans are trying to deflect by talking about Ciara instead of worrying about the fact that Kelly’s been dropped by two labels in the space of six years.

      • MK March 20, 2014

        DROPPED OR LEFT? NOW WHO IS NOT REALISTIC?

  203. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Ciara is better off retiring,even a “cover” with the original writers included is unable to sell her album. 🙁
    http://youtu.be/B9rSBcoX9ak

  204. Superfan March 19, 2014

    Let’s keep it real!
    Ciara is the better performer
    Kelly is the better complete artist.
    Solo wise Ciara once rivaled Beyoncé
    Kelly has not had an era yet to do that, it was supposed to be the here I am era but of course the ball dropped with the non existent promo that’s always surrounding Kelly’s camp.
    Kelly’s vocally superior to Ciara
    Ciara is the better dancer
    Kelly’s album material is better than Ciara’s
    The Evolution slays!
    Thanks to DC Kelly is the bigger artist.
    Ciara supposed to be on top but The world just doesn’t f*** with her.

    Their both flops when it comes to numbers
    But Their both relevant.

  205. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    Ciara will be making me big macs and fries at Mc donalds now yay.

  206. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    Atleast Ciara has the option to retire when she wants to in the future….

    Unlike Kelly who is being pushed into early retirement!!!!

  207. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    Kelly has two options a mc donalds shift worker or take rita ora job and be blues babysitter.

  208. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    Dying at the Kelly fans yall think yall doing something your fav is LABEL LESS now on Ashanti level kiii

  209. SEVYNTHHeaven March 19, 2014

    Kelly Rowland is very stupid and I hate to say but it’s true. You spend all your time trying to prove how loyal you are to Beyonce but haven’t noticed that nobody EVER asks Beyonce about you because nobody cares.
    You’ve been in the game since 1997 and yet you have never gone on a solo world tour or even a domestic one for the matter and have never been invited to perform at any of the shows you used to perform at with DC.

    The Kelly stans won’t see how bad things are until a new girl comes along and does all the things Kelly was supposed to do.

  210. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Chile please Ciara has NO options. She will be dropped soon. Mark my words. It’s a waste of time and money to deal with a certified FLOP! 3 FLops in a ROW. Another on the way. kii f***** kii

    Kelly chose to leave, and she has several labels willing to pick her up Re-read and comprehend 😉 I wonder will FLOPara have the same options when she gets dropped, or will NO label wanna touch a disaster with a ten foot pole?…….. ur opinion?….

  211. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    Even sevyn had a hit last year yet Kelly didn’t

  212. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    “The report adds that she has been working on her fifth studio album and is already in negotiations with the multitude of labels eager to snap her up.”

    Who wouldn’t wanna sign the DC alumni? She has a solid non-fickle fan base. The still buy her albums, even when she’s not promoting. 215,000

    CIARA….has it even reached 200k WW? LOOOOOOOOOL

  213. MonicaOnMyMind March 19, 2014

    I’ll never forget when Kelly stopped talking to Brandy because Brandy told her to be careful of Matthew and stop brown nosing Beyonce. Brandy must have been psychic cos in the end Matthew ended up stealing from her and Beyonce became the biggest star in the world and left Kelly behind.

  214. iconic cici March 19, 2014

    ok @FutureCiara its about that time .

  215. FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

    Thanks for the article that I didnt read

    Buh BYE! 😀

  218. Molly March 19, 2014

    Another win for the C squad. @Slay_Hive you’re doing too much babe desperate for attention i see. No ones coming at Bey so why you trippen?

  219. EMMA March 19, 2014

    LMAO Kelly is pretty much a non factor. Ciara’s career shits on here and she didn’t need a group!!!

  220. Lovebird March 19, 2014

    But why would anyone drag Kelly when she does such a fantastic job dragging herself?

  223. IV March 19, 2014

    It must be a bunch of f**** teenagers on here that can’t read because…. No one knows if Kelly was dropped or she left on her own. Kelly nor the label has released an official statement. Like y’all dummies going on and on about nothing. Y’all are posting on a computer at home unemployed or making minimum wages. Kelly made 2.5 million on X Factor last year so I’m not understanding. Like none of you kno or understand how an industry works but thanks for giving Kelly post 240? comments

  224. SoGone4Monica March 19, 2014

    The C-Squad won this drag battle because they came with facts. Kelly fans live in the future.
    “She’s gonna do this….”

  228. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    @Molly

    I’ve always defended Kelly. She is one of my faves. Unlike you I don’t cling to artist that I don’t like just because I’m bitter.

    Your fave is a FLOP. Ya’ll can’t come for anybody. Learn it, know it, and never forget it! 😉

  229. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    Kii I’m thirsty for attention but you chose to address me with your troll account. I was just waiting for you to drag me honey. I see it wasn’t possible for you. Good day

  230. Shay shay March 19, 2014

    Slay hive hey how about you stfu Kelly is the real Flop. Nobody cares about Beyonce’s background dancer unless she on a red carpet f****

  231. Molly March 19, 2014

    @Slay_Hive girl please…. I’ll come for any bitchh i feel like, im not bitter you know i give credit when due so go somewhere with that BULLSHITT!

  232. slay_hive March 19, 2014

    background dancer? kii

    Maybe Cierror will have a chance at a career if Beyonce hires her for the Mrs. Carter Show? kiiii

  233. Shay shay March 19, 2014

    She needs to hire Kelly If she has time between changing blue Ivys diaper

    • FutureCIARA March 19, 2014

      Kiiiiii

  234. Molly March 19, 2014

    I wanna give a shout out to @BeyHive_Minaj @FutureCiara @SuperCisus @FAF & @EnoughOnika for always remaining loyal and not being bandwagoners and hypocrites like others. 🙂

    • BLOW March 19, 2014

      yeah loyal until they post Ciara’s sells hahahahah

      Not calling anyone out giving credit to those who aren’t like that, but please show me examples of me being a hypocrite and bangwagoner?

  237. bv March 19, 2014

    Kelly will be fine,she has money.
    Kelly’s first album sold about 2.9 Million WW
    Tamar’s not doing it,K.Michelle’s most def not ever doing those numbers.
    As far as Ciara goes,the first two albums made her, the last 3 destroyed her.If Kelly doesn’t release another album,she will always have the impact she made with Destiny’s Child.
    Body Party Charted higher than Kisses down low and only went gold based off of streams,KDL actually earned it’s certification the right way..sales

  238. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    The Non Factor Squad don’t fool me lmao. You Irrelevant Betches are only happy Kelly “supposedly” got kicked off her record label due to she was draggggging Cirrelevant with Ciflop. Deeeeeeeeeeeeath @ Kelly for being dropped but TAGG and HIA sold more than Ciflop and Basic Sh*t and that mess Fantasy Flops. So what does that say about Citranny career????????? #I CAN’T….THE SELF DRAGGGING

  239. Stephy Tha Lambily March 19, 2014

  241. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    Yessssssssssss Celebrate Non Factor Squad! But Kelly still has her foot on Citranny’s manly neck. Nothing want change. Kelly is still that B*tch. I just can’t @ KDL went gold and it wasn’t promoted like Body Fart. Also TAGG OUTSOLD Ciflopppppp and Citranny promoted like crazy. #CERTIFIED LESSER B*TCH

  242. BLOW March 19, 2014

    yeah loyal until they post Ciara’s sells hahahahah

    You being this pressed on Kelly’s post says it all. No kelly’s fan should be comming for you lmao

  243. Naomi March 19, 2014

    Ciaras next. C Squad don’t get too cocky. Kellys last hit was bigger than Ciaras.

  244. Rosie March 19, 2014

    300 comments for this though? Really?

  245. Naomi March 19, 2014

    What gets me is why Ciara fans are so confident they think they can drag Kelly. At the end of the day Kelly is more famous, richer and has stronger legacy. What is Ciaras last album certified as?
    Even Body Party which they cling to, did not even go top 20 not is it even platinum. You need to have plenty seats.

    • sarah March 19, 2014

  247. FAF March 19, 2014

    @Naomi but neither did ANYUTHING belly flop rowland released sis and she took longer to go gold and KDL was outpeaked by BP and in what world is she richer when she got her house foreclosed on??? LMAO are we forgetting Ciara is a writer?

    dont let celebritynetworth fool u they know NOTHING

    ci still making royalties off her first album which outsold EVERYTHING kelly has released

  248. alessandro March 19, 2014

    All i have to say is: yall go get a job bc kelly and ciara are still millionaire
    And yall?… well i dont wanna waste my time on it.
    Ps: i love both girls and dont care for what they sold in the past or sell now.
    Bye

  249. FAF March 19, 2014

    Kelly never been billboard woman of the yr

    does she even have more than 5 top tens??? LOL ci got 8 in 5 yrs

    4/5 albums were top 3 on BBhot200

    writing production credits on EVERYTHING

    NEVER DROPPED FROM A LABEL, paid out her OWN POCKET @ jive to finance her product

    was proposed to (not on skype)

    I mean the list goes on & on 😆 😆 😆

    Beyonce copies Ci, she doesn’t live in Bey’s shadow sucking up her a$$ every interview

  250. Naomi March 19, 2014

    @Faf and Kelly makes royalties off Destinys Child. Everytime Beyonce performes Destinys Child Kelly gets paid. Of course Kelly is richer. Im not a Kelly stan but you Ciara stans need humble yourself when your fave is a FLOP too. Even K Michelle is more secure than Ciara currently.

  251. Naomi March 19, 2014

    And also the skype shade is a mess (main culpret Ciara fans AGAIN). I’d rather my man proposed to me on Skype for ME and for ME alone (not because my ass got pregnant) and know Im not another baby mama added to a collection my man cannot support.

  252. sarah March 19, 2014

    @faf Kelly Rowland is an original member of Destiny’s child my.deat..that intself shits on Ciara`s Past present & future…seeing thayou want to take it.10 years back we can

  253. BLOW March 19, 2014

    You CSquad should really worry about your faves selling 57K.

    Epic and Roc Nation are battling right now to sign the talent and WW star Kelly is. Syliva Rhone the President at Epic Records is the one who signed Kelly to Motown Records and has been supporting her since day 1. So we all know where she will be signing next. Ci better upgrade her game or they might be kicking her so they could sign Kelly… now that will be funny hahahaah.

    • BLOW March 19, 2014

      But I swear love and support Ci though…

      You pathetic jobless fan (especially Csquad) need to stop putting black RNB artists against each other and rather support them. That is why all those b*tches keep losing in front pop talentless acts

      Get a job support black Music Dammnnn iTTTTT..!!!!

    KDL had not one piece of promo yet its still Gold. BP was pushed to the sky and back with promo and could not even go Top 20 or platinum like Motivation. Also Talk a good game outsold Ciara last 3 or 4 albums yet the Ciara fans are acting like their fave is not flopping harder. Just sayin.

  255. RICHIE_RICH March 19, 2014

    Really!!!!!!!! This post is just a mess.

  256. Dj March 19, 2014

    Out of curiosity, who promotes Kelly’s album’s her team or the label? Someone above mentioned that Republic Records is affiliated with The Voice and it honestly makes sense.

  257. sarah March 19, 2014

    I.see why basic flop fantasy flop and.ciflop FLoPPed ..these so called ciara fans jeopardize her career..they turn people against her..u guys are a threat to her already struggling career

  258. HIMEROS March 19, 2014

    The sad reality is, here are ciara and Kelly fans arguing about going GOLD while the rest of the TGJ community is worrying about going platinum.

    The lessors are truly viable in 2014.

    “Dear lord when my fave goes platinum, please let me still be a Stan! When the news comes, tell everyone that she did win. Oh father tell me if you can! All that grace, all that body, oh my fave just makes me want to party”

  259. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    Faf….Chile sit the fawk down. THE QUEEN doesn’t recognize an peasant lesser b*tch like Cirrelevant. Her and Kelly are both Superior! Those 8 top tens from last decade. How is that helping Ciflop sales???? Cirrelevant is an non factor just like her pathetic fans…..lmfaoooooo. These b*tches really think Ci Error is relevant and poppin. #LAWD HELP YOUR PEOPLE

  262. Move on! March 19, 2014

    Kelly may not be signed to Republic Records anymore, but she’s still signed to UMG… So idk what the hell the problem is. Whether she was dropped or if she left, she’s going to be fine.. AND what the f*ck does Ciara have to do with this post? Not a damn thing.So BYEEE! I mean really? There is absolutely NO comparisons! And y’all talking about Kelly’s engagement? At least she has a man! And her man don’t have a thousand baby mamas! With Kelly’s solo sales and DC sales she’s pushing 85-90 million sold and she was named #20 on the top 100 awarded artist; Soooooo……. But I digress.

    • Sarah March 20, 2014

      as Ciara sits at #79..Kelly sits at #20 EASILY

  263. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    Stephy…Queen Aretha does care for KING B! When that whole lip sync fiasco broke out. The media asked Aretha what she thought about it and she said, I think Beyonce did an great job. Maybe next time ill do the same thing. @Ashely…Its been Updated. Kelly has sold 27 Million! Over 70 million with DC

    “Nobody wants to hear my b*******” – Kelly Rowland Dirty Laundry

  265. ratedxxx(next broad) March 19, 2014

    Kelly got dropped…we all know that she didn’t leave..

    this is the second record label who has dropped her…

    the issue with Kelly she doesn’t want to be number 1, she likes being second best to beyonce..and whenever she is doing better or has a better song than bey, she goes on tv, and brags about how great beyonce is..

    what record label wants to have an artist who refuses to promote themselves, but promote every body else

  266. Stephy Tha Lambily March 19, 2014

    DEATH!

    At people hyping up Kelly Rowlands sales…

    Digger Bey, oh boo… You cant seem to lead between the lines. Aretha is a master at shade.

    Anyways, im sure Aretha respects her as an entertainer but Aretha “liking” Beyonce is very hard to believe lol

  272. Ciara QUEEN Harris March 19, 2014

    Kelly is no comparison to Ciara. Her dumb fans are always throwing shade. Tell Kelloser to get a platinum album first. Idiots!!

  273. DIGGER BEY March 19, 2014

    ^^^^The Self Draggggging lmfaooooooooo

  274. Mark111 March 19, 2014

    Hahahahaha, @Ashley is doing the most. So Kelly top three songs are two features and Motivation? LOL!!!!!!!

    Her first album went gold in 2011, it took 9 years to go gold. That’s why she was dropped.

    • MK March 20, 2014

      simply deep went gold in 6 weeks of sales back in 2001 pls h**

  275. jammy March 19, 2014

    Her FIRST album went Gold you idiot. Also, having double platinum singles doesn’t make her a constant flop.

  276. noneya14 March 19, 2014

    Ummm Simply Deep was certified gold 11 years ago in 2003.What are you talking about???

  277. BEYAWNCE March 19, 2014

    DROP & FLOP word belongs to Kelly. Smdh gurl. Try again

  278. Waverunnerdvon March 19, 2014

    Kelly rowland will be fine! She has nothing to prove! The industry lover her! Hence why artist are always wanting to work with her. As far as her leaving her label. Im hoping she tales this time to see that she needs a bigger budget. Shes stepped up her fashion and live vocals now we just need an all around promo treatment. The shade and hate is ridiculous considering the majority of the girls you stan for didnt scan plantinum in the recent albums. R amd b girls are struggling. Instead of shading them support them. I bought kellys tamar ashantis brandys and keyshia coles albums when they dropped. Just start buying music. Ppl come on these blogs and complain about sales but dont but albums themselves smh damn shame

  279. BEYAWNCE March 19, 2014

    No matter what, Kelly is always more talented than YAWNCE.

  280. the Queen of R&B March 19, 2014

    but wait why are people talking about Ciara when Ciara is the real flop when you think about the Top five female people people say Beyoncé ,Rihanna ,Nicki , and Kelly Rowland Not Ciara so yall can get off kellys post now we got yall mad h*** to do what we wanted and that was to get all these comments so thank you Ciara is the real flop kellys net worth and whole life is more then any of the other R&B girls ,and I said R&B Not POP I see Beyoncé and Rihanna as pop stars and R&B stars The Queen of R&B Is Kelly (Kelz) Rowland-Witherspoon now bye Felicia #rowlandstones #QueenofR&B

  281. PROF March 19, 2014

    No one knows what happened. And these are not Kelly’s words they are the words of a source. Regardless, she is a free agent and will hopefully find the success that God intends for her to have,. Everyone goes through a lot and we have all been dropped at some time or point in our lives, so what are we really talking about? The things that don’t kill us makes us stronger. Instead of talking about someone else is a flop or failure as you see it, take a moment to reflect on where you were before you was denied and look at where you are now. I think we should all celebrate each other just for being able to withstand the pressures and stress of life as a people. Look at all of the good things she has accomplished and even if she never sells another record (highly unlikely), she has accomplished more than some people ever dream of.

  282. Bey Hive March 19, 2014

    Now Ciara fans should not be coming for Ms.Kelly Rowland imma just say this Kellys net worth 30 million Ciara Net worth 15 million The Next Time Yall Ciara fans come for The Queen of R&B ( ILL give her that ) The BeyHive WIll make Ciara into a nobody

  283. BEYAWNCE March 19, 2014

  284. BEYAWNCE March 19, 2014

      • MK March 20, 2014

  294. rowland stone March 20, 2014

    LMAO 😀

  295. We Rowlin’ March 20, 2014

    Child….Bye

  296. Buns Minaj March 20, 2014

    Oh my! Now I know why the Runner Ups (Kelly’s fan base) are still able to stan for her. They actually believe their own lies. Those sales you put up here are straight fiction, giving all kinds of 50 Shades of Grey realness.

  297. MK March 20, 2014

    DO U REALLY THINK SHE WUD WANT TO BE SIGNED OFF WITH ANY BIGGER OFFERS? U TALKING LIKE A FOOL BUT WHAT IM I EXPECTING? YOU STAN FOR A FOOL

  298. JOHNVIDAL March 20, 2014

    LOL Sam… I mean, of course we are talking about Kelly Rowland (no shade to her) so the explanation is that she is “spreading wings”, if this were Mariah Carey or some others he likes to attack non stop for nothing, he will be calling them all kinds of things.

  299. MK March 20, 2014

    FICTION GOOGLE EM BABY

  300. jillian March 20, 2014

    check her networth n see ho much she making?

  302. Timeless March 20, 2014

    It was only a matter of time before she was dropped. Kelly is not an album seller.

  303. ENUFF March 20, 2014

    I cannot handle any longer the ignorance on this blog! Most of these comments are coming from ignorant people who know NOTHING about the music industry. These are the same people who will let R&B music die because they pit the artists against one another, focus on sales instead of the quality of the music, and illegally download instead of buy the music. Then when the record companies steal the sound for their white artists, these same people buy it up as it they are the most amazing songs ever! I AM DONE! Please don’t get on here with all this ignorance, you are not only hurting Kelly, but every black R&B artist! When the people who should buy music are overly critical,competitive, and will not legally purchase albums, R&B music cannot survive! U know why country artists stay winning? Their fans can buy any and all of their albums and they don’t pit one against the other. Record labels look at your comments for demographic data and marketing strategy. Its not about the artists, its about the buying public! An artist cannot make you buy their album, but if you like their music, put your money where your mouth is! Wake Up!

  304. N March 20, 2014

    Wheter she was dropped or left its neither here nor there. The bigger picture is that MAYBE she does not have a record label. The major issue I see is that she must know which direction she wants to take in her music career. For two albums now she focused on rnb and where had that gotten her? It makes no sense to blame record label if I was Kelly but examine MYSELF and ask what I could have done better and where have I gone wrong. Both Kelly and her record label dont know anything about marketing and that is Kelly’s major problem. Kelly came on several talk shows re X factor and could have negotiated to speak about X factor and then her album, and even perform. That is called wisdom and tact which Kelly don’t have. Also, the little time she promoted her album and she is all over the place and talking about other people, that is her and not her record label. Finally, she started a small tour prior to X factor, she should not have stopped. It called hard work.

  305. Lebo(CaribbeanBOi) March 20, 2014

    LOVE ME SOME KELLY ROWLAND … PPL STAY PRESS AND HER NETWORTH IS 30 MILLION …

  306. Matthew Charlery-Smith March 21, 2014

    Wherever I’ve been it’s been my responsibility to look at where I am and what I’m doing with what I have. If I had Kelly’s fame, exposure and money I’d like to think I could do much better than she has. I certainly wouldn’t be turning up on radio shows to talk about my favourite s** positions or my love for Beyonce every chance I get. Kelly even disappeared off the promo game to spend 2 weeks by Beyonce’s side as she prepared for the Superbowl half-time show. She’s ruined her own public image and paid very little attention to the music. I don’t see it for her anymore, she needs to get a clue.

  307. alessandro March 22, 2014

    Children plz. Kelly is millionaire and she dont care for what yall think. So stop.
    She can stop workin if she feels like.
    And you better wake up 5 in the morning to get that minimum wage. Bye.

  308. BEYAWNCE March 22, 2014

    I stopped with 400th comment. The thread is officially closed lol. smh kelly

  309. N March 24, 2014

    I wonder how much people her realize that when an artist is dropped from a label its waaaaaaaaaaaaay bigger than that!!!!!!!!!! Promo is one factor that artists fail to sell the other is us, the consumer of music, who is boxed in and socialized that the best music out there are those that are on the top. We argue about who is selling and who is not, but we fail to see that are comfortable go what they do any making more money what we will make in a lifetime!
