Kelly Rowland Confirms Roc Nation Signing

Published: Tuesday 5th May 2020 by Sam

Kelly Rowland is officially part of the Roc.

For, the GRAMMY-winning songbird has revealed that she has signed to Jay-Z‘s entertainment juggernaut Roc Nation. 

Full story below…

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the firm have been actively plugging Kelly’s single ‘Coffee’ – leading to murmurs about a partnership between both entities.

During a recent interview with AP, the 39-year-old confirmed the news.

On Signing To Roc Nation:

“Roc Nation is my management company. That’s new. : It’s family and it just happened. It just really happened to work and it’s working out really well so far. My team, I have a great team. It’s not to say I didn’t have a great team before, I had a great team before. You evolve, you move on and that’s really it and Roc Nation is home now.”

On Being Independent:

“Yes [I am], for now. There have been really cool calls. At the same time, it’s such a different space and time in music now. I think in my head it’s just navigating it all. I’m definitely independent. It’s something about it that I’m really, really loving and there’s something about it where you’re just like, “Oh I need a little bit more of some budget money to execute some of this.” I always say that dog’on Destiny’s Child set me up because we had visuals. People are like, “You gon’ release a song with no visuals?” Now that I released ‘Coffee’ people are like, “OK, what are we going to get next? What visual are we going to get next?” So I do feel that pressure, but I just want to take it a little easier on myself.”

On Her New Album:

“I’m very excited about this album. I’m excited for the fact that the years that it took me to find tempo. …The whole album’s not up-tempo, but I’m excited to share my tempo. I feel like I always had mids and slower records but yeah, I’m ready to dance. Especially when we come out of all this, we need to dance.”

Exciting times!

      Lol now we know why Beyoncé shared three whole posts on her instagram feed about coffee

    • A few facts May 5, 2020

      Now we know why Beyoncé shared three whole posts about coffee on her page

    Kelly biggest problem is her confidence, she never sounds sure of herself. She needs to work on that.

    • Erica May 5, 2020

      I can agree to a degree, but now she seems to have found that confidence & it oozes out on the coffee visual. I think this era might be a special one From her

      • Lyka May 5, 2020

        nooo i think she start getting her confendece after Motivation. After that era she seem to become more herself.

  3. Likebutdon’tLove May 5, 2020

    I’ve never been a huge jelly Rowland fan. She’s very talented and I think she can sing she’s just never been my cup of tea but I really like this song. Hope the rest of this album sounds decent and not just one or two actual hits

    • Psy May 5, 2020

      Then you haven’t listened to Ms kelly and Talk a good game… Those albums are classics

    I honestly didnt want her to take this route i think she should get sure,confident and ready on kelly and stay from Beyonce and have her own lane. No shade to bey but kelly will always be behind her if she doesnt get away.

    • trippi May 5, 2020

      being MANAGED by roc nation isn’t in Beyonce’s shadow…. she has nothing to do with it other than her husband being a likely hands-off boss to kelly

      • PinotNoir May 6, 2020

        Pillow talk about a former bandmate’s future music plans helmed by your hubby? If you DO steal ideas and concepts like decade-long rumors say you do, you prolly will. #Food4Thought

    Coffee is a gorgeous video, but the song sucks and is too short. It serves better as an interlude. Her worst lead single after kisses down low 🙄 I want kelly to win, but it’s like she doesn’t want to see success. Why doesn’t she realize we want another motivation? I’ll never forgive her for not making “work it man” a single. Such a bop. Ugh. Kelly AND Ciara frustrate me because they’re mismanaged and don’t know what to do

    • Nicky May 5, 2020

      She released ICE , a Motivation inspired song and it flopped

      • Only Facts May 5, 2020

        Because that song sucked and was produced by Sean garret (a terrible producer)….and she shouldn’t have put Wayne on it again. She needs to stick to working with Rico Love. He is her Quincy Jones in my opinion.

    • Bam May 5, 2020

      Nah coffee is great. It’s short but honestly it gives me everything I need in its little 2 mins. It from the way it sounds Coffee is only a warm up to the real bangers coming up.

      Hell kelly has kinda always been ahead of the curve she used a Rich Harrison Banger before he was really known for being “Beyoncé and Ameries uptempo guy”. She went slow and explicit before many of these chicks including Yonce with Motivation. Put out two explicit albums while Yonce was still toeing the line tryna be the good girl before following suit. This super slow kinda trap R&B phase we seem to be stuck in in many ways Started with Kelly’s “Talk a Good Game” she noted that herself.

    • Keyshia May 5, 2020

      Omg Work it man was a wonderful song i thought i was the only one that thought it should’ve had so much play….omg kelly

  7. 2bad2bme May 5, 2020

    You can never impress these tired queens. I bet if Taylor Swift made this song everyone would be all over it. Anyways, Kelly keep doing your thing girl and represent for the chocolate sisters!

    • Clarks0o0ñ May 5, 2020

      Taylor swift will never make a lame boring song like this

      Taylor swift makes bops, u cant take that from her.
      She is a bop maker

      Shake it off
      Bad blood
      We are never getting back together
      Style
      I knew u were trouble

      All these songs are certified bops.

  8. DC3+FOREVER May 5, 2020

    COFFEE is EVERYTHING!!!! It gives me everything I need in 2mins and when it’s over I just repeat it. Next single should be mid June and album should be out no later than mid July Kelly!! Don’t forget that. Since MS.KELLY the issue has always been timing and consistency so make sure you got it right this time

    • Bam May 5, 2020

      Agreed! Some songs overstay their welcome Coffee is just the right length.

      • MonkeySeeMonkeyDo May 5, 2020

        I like Coffee but Kelly’s problem is her team. Her career would be farther along if she had the right team. All of the biggest stars have a team of ppl pushing them. Kelly has the bops and talent!

  9. Clarks0o0ñ May 5, 2020

    Damn nicki minaj stans are crazy and are insane
    Look at this mess.

    Nicki Minaj is officially credited as the lead artist of “Say So (Remix)”.

    🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

    Nicki minaj and her trashy stans are trying to hijack doja cat’s song.

    Stream say so, the original version.

  10. Jungkook May 5, 2020

    Let me guess she will perform at the Superbowl the next year as special guest like Shakira did this year thanks to jayz (roc nation)

  11. AJ May 5, 2020

    Old news. She is releasing on KTR Records (her own company) which is being distributed by Equity Distribution, which is in turn owned by Roc Nation. The news she’s signed to them for management isn’t surprising given that the cover art is in the same style as B’s last album as was the rollout of “Coffee. 1 week’s notice.

  12. PinotNoir May 5, 2020

    Kelly’s been indoctrinated as a kid. She feels canine-like loyalty/ indebtedness to The Knowless. Just as she had started solidifying her make-good-musical-choices-alone muscle (after breaking free of Matthew’s strong strangle hold on her individuality), she goes back under Bey’s shadow where nothing creative grows. If you think her former bandmate would let Jay make her star shine brighter than his wife’s, you underestimate her controlling, me-first ways. RiRi’s hiatus must be good news to her right now.

    • Paulo May 5, 2020

      Girl, bye. It’s 2020 and Kelly been out of Matthew and Columbia’s reach for over a decade now and bad decisions still happened for her. If she feels Roc Nation is the place to be now then let her. She must be right cause Coffee is by far her best video as a solo artist

      • PinotNoir May 5, 2020

        By bye, you mean you’re leaving? However good a vid is, if a song fails to delight the ear, it’s no bop. Grown Åss Woman, Crown, Kelly, See Me, Work, Better Without You, Motivation, This Is Love, #1, Lay It On Me, When Love Takes Over either make you wanna dance or sing along. Coffee is visually stunning, but it moves no bone in my body … not even the cartilage in my ear. 🙏 And when you say I should let her find a home in Roc Nation; my opinion ain’t stopping her. Bye now.

      • Nic May 5, 2020

        She paid for that video all for herself though. Coffee is released under her own label KTR Records. Roc Nation is just for management

      • Paulo May 5, 2020

        No I mean shut the hell up with the boring essays to disguise your dated opinions. BYE!

      • PinotNoir May 6, 2020

        Why are you so salty about what I write? And why do you interact with me in the first place? That ish is stalkerish. Do my essays increase your taxes? Do they make your mother’s pimp not pay her? Do they grow warts on your foreskin? If not, I recommend anger management classes or, one day, your disrespect will get you treated like a piñata in real life.

  13. I+love+big+black+c** May 6, 2020

    Kelly flopland has no taste in music and loves to release boring & lifeless music. Even she worked with hit maker like Redone, Dr. Luke, David

    • I+love+big+black+c** May 6, 2020

      They gave her the weakest tracks ever, like down for whatever, rose color glasses, commander.. they all like reject materials from other singers. Guess nobody can save her curses flopped a-s-s
