Singer-songwriter Kelly Rowland visits 'Access Hollywood Live' on location in New York City

Maybe "Dumb" wasn't the best title for Kelly Rowland's new dance track. It opens the door for fans to criticize the singer's latest effort to reconnect with her music after she abandoned the music for television fame.

Rowland has a guest role on Fox TV's soap opera musical 'Empire', and she is set to judge aspiring singers on BET's Chasing Destiny -- about the search for a new girl group to replace Destiny's Child. (as if any group can replace the iconic DC).

What do you think of Kelly's new song?

  • Str8tUpMenace

  • Str8tUpMenace

    True, just a lot better hygiene and dental care. LMAO

  • SpillyNillie

    Oh girl said she was wifey material, yet you give it up on the bathroom sink in a crowded tattoo shop...errrrrruuuuu.....

    about the search for a new girl group to replace Destiny’s Child. (as if any group can replace the iconic DC).

    Hey Sandra........

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This is some straight up usual bubble gum mess she puts out .... nerp

  • Str8tUpMenace

    YASSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! And then started claiming that fool like they were in a relationship. Bish bye. SMH

  • SummerBaby

    Yes! I loved that they all had nice lineups. The girls seemed a little extra & over the top.

  • SandrasNewFave

    ...

  • puppylove

    Thanks for the new post Sandra

  • ShelbyMoore

    The dudes are cuties...the broads (except Jerimah's baby mama) are all shaped like cardboard moving boxes.

  • ShelbyMoore

    That Charmaine bih is doing too much....way too soon. That bih's just loud for no reason.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Did you see the crews' faces when dude's girl walked in on that twerk session?!?!?!? Lawd, they looked like they were ready to pack it up and haul azz out the back door. LMAO

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Way too much

  • SpillyNillie

    She's the Kathy of the group LOL

  • iWasteTime

    Who is behind that show? Matty getting a check? They must havee felt bad for his old azz

  • Jean Paul Le’vonne

    Sounds like a discarded track from Rihanna's last album!

  • SummerBaby

    When she has her mouth closed she "appears" classy than she starts talking ?

  • ShelbyMoore

    No one can be compared to Kathie. You can look in Kathie's eyes and see there's something off with her. The bm in 9 Mag seems like she's doing it for the cameras...I don't see crazy in her eyes YET.

  • Chocolate City

    I've never been a fan of a Kelly's music and I'm still not. Girl Group? More like Bey and her back-up singers. I prefer Solange and her music more than her sister and them.

  • SpillyNillie

    Exactly and becomes hypocritical

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    bawhahahahah hilarious pic !

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I hollered when they picked ole boy up and threw his out the door. Lawd, they damn near Jazzy Jeffed his azz. *dead*

  • SpillyNillie

    Kathy really was throwed the hell off. Observing her mood swings, I could tell when she was on and off her medicine.

  • SandrasNewFave

    Well thanks.

  • ShelbyMoore

    The guys do amazing tattoos though...O'Shyt needs to get his shat together, bathe, see a dentist and head over to 9 Mag cause he's the only tattoo artist at Black Ink.

    Sidebar: Why didn't they just call this show "9 Mag"?

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I mean the song ain't great. But bearable.
    Now I say this now, until I hear it all day in my house accompanied by about 4 giggling, dancing lil 10 year old girls. BabyLurk loves anything Beyonce or adjacent there of.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Yes, 9 Mag is def chittin on Black Ink's hygiene, looks, and tats. LMAO

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    My child loves Janell Monae ... I means loves her ...

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    I would fugg Ryan

  • SummerBaby

    I would've lost it too!

  • Futuredocdonte

    Maybe “Dumb” wasn’t the best title for Kelly Rowland‘s new dance Track
    -----
    Not a fan of her dance music but her slow jams are some baby makers

  • ShelbyMoore

    Charmaine can't even twerk though...she's so sloppy.

  • SummerBaby

    She's so delusional & full of herself

  • Futuredocdonte

    As if any group can replace the iconic DC).

    ??? we always knew you were a fan

    I saw a clip of them singing "amen" on the red carpet. They were some harmonizing women ?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Nice catchy beat

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I woulda turned that place upside down and inside out. LMAO

  • Str8tUpMenace

    co-damn-sign!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sriracha In My Bag

    Sounds like a generic DJ Mustard song..I don't even know if I like the hook to the song. I like Kelly though, and she makes good music, but this song aint for me.

  • ShelbyMoore

    So....why Jeramih won't take care of his kid? Why's Ryan playing daddy to Jeramih's child? Triflin!

  • Futuredocdonte

    Is that her surgical scar from her boob job or nah?

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Wait, sooooo that's Jeramih's baby????????? I missed that part. I was wondering who the pappy was. Well, damn.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Yes chile. A mess! Now you know Jeramih's gonna drag that azz into court and act a fool knowing he's a deadbeat and his child calling another man daddy.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Newpost

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    It's too bad that record companies put artists out to pasture after a certain age, especially in R&B/Soul. I have to pull out my cassette tapes if I want to listen to real good music like Patti LaBelle & Regina Belle. Dang, I miss Phyllis Hyman & Luther!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Whooooo chile!!!! You know he pissed now. LMAO

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I got beef with Kelly. I'm salty about Beyonce bringing her arse to Cici's birthday party to suck up all the shine when she know she ain't got no love for Ci. I blame Kelly for her being there. Of the few that posted their group pic, they all chopped off Ciara's name and posted a lopsided pic just to take her name off of it. Angie Beyince didn't post the pic at all and only posted pics of herself and her real crew. Of course B didn't post pics from the party at all. The shade was just too shady. They seem like mean girls to me.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    That's some sad side-boobage IMB :coffee:

  • The Mrs.

    Wellll! *church voice*

  • partytime

    It's alright......

  • EasyBreezy

    I believe SWV could replace DC in a heartbeat.

  • SouljaSociety

    she throwin up that illuminati shit...

  • Canary Red™

    Wait what???? I had no clue Kelly was there. I'm still trying to figure out why Beyoncé was there. Are they friends never knew, who knew?????

    SIDEBAR: Omg my phone auto completed Beyoncé says name - HELL NAW!!!

  • SG

    Exactly! People were calling Kelly out for that shade too. Eventually she posted a pic of the group with CiCi in the middle smh

  • NegraGata

    I so love listening to Phyllis Hyman. Her voice was sooooo good. She is one person that committed suicide that I didn't quit liking the body of work they left behind.

  • 1/8

    I like it. The catchy, repetitive, synthesized baseline has a fun, retro feel and the vocal arrangement is interesting.

    The gay kids and the strippers are going to eat this up.

  • Imperfectly_perfect

    I'm so tired of the entertainment industry "dumb"-ing down sh*t! It's always about sex, money & looks! They're apart of the agenda to take our minds off real sh*t, like what's really going on in the world! But I'll stop here before my comment gets deleted?

  • Imperfectly_perfect

    ...and the song was stupid! Bey ain't gonna let Kelly come close to her reign, but Kelly gonna keep trying tho?

  • starbright9449

    Obviously Ciara didn't mind them coming. Maybe some people are always looking for strong black women to beef with each other. Maybe they are friends. Beyonce is usually seen out with her family and ppl who work for her. She may call Cici up on the phone. This is worse than people pushing the Nicki and Beyonce are besties rumour.

  • AG

    Seems like she's trying to follow the same wave as Rih and Beyonce.....lyrics dumbed-down with a catchy beat (7/11 and BBHMM). Only thing is this beat sucks. I like Kelly, so I'm hoping her other music will sound better...

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    Angie is her cousin, they were celebrating her birthday as well. We honestly don't know what Beyoncé and Ciara relationship is like. Does Beyoncé light shine so bright that all she has to do is show up to dim the next person's light? Notice how you posted Beyoncé didn't post any photos from the party? It's the general public who makes these beefs.

  • WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately?

    Is this autobiographical about her time as a member of Beyonces Child in which she played the role of Beyonces boot licker?

  • ?E?E?M?A

    I loved it but after the 3rd minute it just sounded like repetitive noise. She stopped using lyrics after that point. But I love the creative direction of the music. I think Kelly falls into the trap of trying to make deep soulful music when sometimes people just want something like this to shake their azz to.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    you might enjoy Jazmine Sullivan's Dumb song. even meek mill's verse is good.

  • ImKing

    This song is catchy and very dumb, I guess Kelly has decided 2 follow the horrible trends. No innovation whatsoever.

  • BlackPpLoveOppressionN2bDocile

    SO I GUESS NO ONE NOTICES THAT KELLY IS THROWING UP THE BAPHOMET HAND SIGN IN THE PIC POSTED FOR THIS ARTICLE. MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE ARE DUMB DUMB DUMB I SEE.

  • BlackPpLoveOppressionN2bDocile

    This is the only attn kelly can get is by being naked and singing about her puzzi.

  • SandrasNewFave

    Well damn, if Meek is good I'll surely check it out. Thanks

  • Meme81

    I wouldn't buy it, but I might dance to the beat. Might.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Someone said this upstairs

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    That whole room looked like it reeked of Pall Malls and day old sweat.

  • 88

    wack.

  • Shay

    ????????

  • KILLERBEYHIVE

    Well' no girl group came close to replacing them...5th Harmony sure aint gonna to do it.

  • PROF

    It is also a discarded track from Kelly's album hence it is on soundcloud for free. Her true fans wanted something, so she released this to let us know that she is in the studio.

  • PROF

    If singing backup can make me a millionaire then I would too. She definitely did not get paid like a backup singer...so why people continue to say this is beyond me.

  • Jean Paul Le’vonne

    Kelly Rowland should focus more on her budding acting career than producing a solo album. She's not that great of a singer without the studio enhanced vocals. Both Kelly & Michelle will always be struggling singers in music business without Destiny's Child.

  • PROF

    Were all entitled to our own preferences. Not to shade but who enhances and lip syncs more than benonce? She has a great team of choreographers and PR backing so her shows are well performed... we can tell they are rehearsed! She lip synced at the inauguration with the world watching...yes to her altered studio voice. No one gets their wig caught in a fan and not have a change in voice or expression... very well rehearsed. I think all three girls are talented in their own right and comparing them is just childish. That is like your parents comparing your gifts or lack thereof to your siblings...God's path and purpose for you is all uniquely yours. Yes, Kelly has a great acting career starting, but she can also sing and many think her voice is likened to silk. Trust she has sold millions of albums solo and if she was like benonce and became the....well no need to say it. They are wonderful women with an opportunity to live a dream our forefathers fought for... many years ago it was not possible for them to have these rights...so I applaud them and wish them great success.
