Kelly Rowland Dropped by Record Label

Kelly Rowland in New York

After dropping her successful album, Talk a Good Game, it seems inconceivable that songstress Kelly Rowland was dropped by her record label. TaGG sold over 200K albums. So what’s the problem? It looks like Beyonce may have called in a favor at the record label.

From S2S magazine:

A recent development has some wondering whether Kelly has been dropped from Universal Republic. PopDust.com reports that Kelly’s no longer listed on the labels roster of artists.

This comes after her last album, Talk a Good Game, sold only 215,000 copies around the world. Supposedly there had been plans to re-release the album with some additional tracks. It’s not clear if that idea has been scrubbed in the wake of news that Kelly was cut from Universal.

Neither Kelly nor Universal have made any statement on the rumors at this time.

  • Roc

    If she ain’t making them no money, it doesn’t make sense to keep her as an artist.

  • Wasting time

    Damn Kelly!! :sad:

  • Matchsticks

    Ummm, I love me some Kelly Ro, but is she really a marketable lucrative artist? #honestquestion

    She’s been doing good as an X factor judge and a face for fitness, she will be ok…

  • Roc

    And what Bey gotta call a favor in for? That bish sold over a million overnight with no promotion. I’m sure she ain’t worried about Kelly’s little 200k.

  • kamadiva

    215K copies WORLDWide is not a lot of records!

  • San ah make ya dance

    It looks like Beyonce may have called in a favor at the record label.

    Update:
    Co-Worker was just told by her boss that since she don’t want to follow the rules for what ever reason she has been removed from friends/family incentive for the rest of the year. She is :mad: and now trying to be all buddy buddy and wants to sit with me to build the car :nono: We have been doing this dance for a month.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Kelly has never had a number one song where she appears on it ALONE.

    Dilemma had Nelly on it
    Motivation had Wayne on it
    And we know all about all the other females she used to be the 2nd leader vocalist alongside.

    Body Party came on the radio yesterday and I didn’t even grind in my set to it.

    You forgot too? :lol: see? that’s why she got dropped…didn’t nobody have time for that despite her good performance on the EBT awards..

  • pointhimout

    lol @ beyonce calling in a favor. too funny sandra. kelly put out a song once a year and a hit once every 3 years. it’s no surprise she was dropped. what was the benefit to being signed to a label anyways? she has name recognition, go indie, drop a single once a year like you’ve been doing and keep all the profit and do shows.

    Who would keep an “artist” around who sells 215,000 globally. Latoya Jackson sold more copies of “You’re Gonna Get Rocked”… never heard of that album?

    EXACTLY!!

    Kelly was too comfortable letting Beyonce take front stage, and now her dumb a$$ has to deal with the consequences that Beyonce is a superstar and she’s not because she was too busy saying, “That’s my sister!”

    You see what “sister” got you, huh, Kelly?

  • Ni ni

    Unfortunately, the music business is about popularity. Gone are the days where we had several female artists out at one time with good hits. I actually liked kellys motivation and kisses below and think they sound better than the songs beyonce has out right now. I think beyonce got this more sexed up image after kellys image got sexier. Im no fan of either women but its a shame that people will support one over the other instead of buying good music.

    She still sings – every time I see her she looks like she’s coming from a work out session… side note: her fake tits are too high – they need a little deflating….
