Miss Kelly Album Sales

Miss Kelly As many of you know, Kelly Rowland released her sophomore album, Miss Kelly, earlier this week and her competition for the top spot on next week’s chart is pretty stiff. Kelly is going head to head with Atlanta rapper T.I. and according to one day sales from Hits Daily Double, T.I. is winning- by a landslide. According to the sometimes right and sometimes wrong source, T.I. is on his way to selling over 500,000 copies of his CD, while Kelly is due to sell just over 100,000 copies of her new opus. Now even though Kelly will obviously not come in at #1, the #2 slot isn’t so bad and with a great follow up single to Bump Like This, we are sure the Miss Kelly album will have what it takes to at least go platinum.


Kelly also stopped by MTV’s TRL on Tuesday and judging from the pics below, she was willing to go the extra mile to get fans to go out and buy her album.

Update: 7.10.2007

Hits Daily Double’s final numbers are in and they have Kelly Roland at #6 with first week sales of 86,746. As we all know the official Soundscan numbers will be available tommorow evening but they aren’t going to change much. I am truly sorry to see Kelly’s album have such a poor showing. I cannot believe that after 10 years as a member of the biggest selling female group in history, so few people would care about what Kelly has to say as a solo artist. This is truly a shame.

  1. Congratulations to Kelly Rowland. I’m happy for her. Sadly her album is still a flop though and not even coming in at number two can deflect attention away from that. I really thought Like This was a good single and the video was nice too. Radio didn’t pick the single up and that is why it flopped.

  2. I’m not shocked and I’m not about to blame her management or Beyonce either. Kelly is missing the IT factors that helps to make someone a star. Granted Rihanna lacks the IT factor too but she has great promotion and better songs to make up for what she lacks in stage presence and personality.

  3. Damn, what’s up with Kelly and her stripper dance? Was she performing a song or just acting a fool? Either way she looks so desperate. :thumbsdown:

  4. Well I say that she will make it Platinum. I think the single wasn’t strong enough for her to come out with out anyone bigger than her coming out the same day. I think T.I coming out will help her sales because people will come to gt him and remember that her album droped and might decided to spend $22 instead of $10. The single was really good but she hasn’t mastered showman ship yet. I think BET awards was the perfect time to bust out as this amazing performer and vocalist and she didn’t pull it off. If she would have ripped it I think her sales would have doubled because people always wanted to like Kelly more than the other memebers and wanted her to be hot. SHe just never justified what we all felt and wanted her to do. BE A STAR THAT SPARKLES! I think her ripping the stage after Beyonce performing would have pushed her up a notch. And all the performances have been ok…like a watered down crazy in love performance with all those girls. She ahsn’t found her place yet. There will come a poitn when she will have to find out what she brings to the table that makes her diffrent other than her name and appearance. But vocally and lyrically. Sad to say Letoya did it right. She came out foriegn to other female artists but had a presence with a strong single, strong vocals. I admit she played it safe but she made her own lane. Kelly needs to make her own lane. She needs quidance with new management. NOt that Mathew is bad but his vision for her isn’t workign and she needs someone to change her vibe and put her in the right situation to create her own lane.

  5. I hope kells goes platinum to show the peopel who doubt her she could. her album is actually good and peopel who went out and bought it were surprise. She really step it up this time around besides i’ve heard nothin’ but good reviews. Arent yall tired of hearing watered down RnB? Besides i herad T.I’s album didn’t even live up the hype but of course everyone bought it cuz he’s hot right now. And in a way i do blame it on her management because I believe they could have promoted her a little more and gave her the full treatment instead of at the last minute but time will tell next week!! I’ll be praying kells!

  6. Latoya’s album last year sold more than Kelly’s did and came in at #1.

  7. She may go platinum eventually. I don’t know if she will right away, but I hope so, I like Kelly

  8. Well whatever it is i still like the girl.But i still feel as though she needs a new team that has her intrest

  9. Promoting Kelly is in the best interest of her management. If Kelly is a hit they make money and can claim ownership of two successful female artists, her and Beyonce

  10. I hope she goes platinum as well I bought the album and I actually like it, it’s not spectular but pretty solid, definately worth the $9.99.I don’t buy that whole she needs new management bull like someone said above there out to make money at the end of the day so having two successful artist would be in there best interest and I think they know that.Kelly was on MTV, BET, The Today Show, Much Music, Jimmy Kimmel, The Bet Awards, radio interviews, magzine covers she got the same treatment as Beyonce, Rhianna and everybody that’s hot. I love Kelly I just don’t know if she has the it factor and even if she does the public will always see her in Beyonce’s shadow, so it’s really the people not really even so much her or her management.

  11. I like Kelly I love her voice too. I’m a DC fan and I’m going to support her. But I just hope she give us better more up-beat tracks this time around.

    LOL 🙂

  12. I LIKE KELLY AS A PERSON BUT SHE LACKS A DEFINING STYLE AND THE PERSONALITY TO BECOME A MAJOR STAR. THAT DOESN’T MEAN SHE CAN’T MAKE IT THOUGH. HER SINGLE WITH NELLY WAS A HIT AND I THINK KELLY SHINES WHEN SHE DOES CUTE SONGS LIKE THAT. TRYING TO BE BEYONCE IS NOT FOR HER. SHE NEEDS TO CARVE OUT HER OWN NICHE SND STICK WITH IT. THEOSE PICS OF HER ALL BENT OVER JUST SCREAM ATTENTION WHORE. SHE NEEDS TO STOP TRYING TO COMPETE WITH BEYONCE BECAUSE SHE WILL ALWAYS FAIL.

  13. This is false information. If you would read CAREFULLY. Those were sales numbers from their previous albums. First day numbers haven’t even been reported yet. I’m already noticing on other sites that their saying exactly what you reported and it’s FALSE INFORMATION. Before you post things, you should really read your information carefully and report accurate info. Thanx Check it out http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales

  14. I thought Kelly’s BET performance was a wreck. 🙁 I know she has a deep voice, but she just sounded wobbly and out of breath. As for her album sales, it’s great she came in number 2, but who was she really competing against? Who else came out this week besides TI?

    I think she does best in a group, and I really can’t see her blowing up as a solo star, but hey, best of luck to her.

  15. what exactly is the “it” factor that y’all say she’s lacking? :lol2: is she beautiful? yes! great underrated voice? yes! humility? yes! great, bubbly personality? yes! one of the members of THE biggest selling girl group of all time? definately! i think people are caught up in the drama! i’m sorry, i bough kelly’s cd and it was definately spectacular, i agree that she should have come harder with the club tracks but man, if i wanna listen to something hard i listen to bee or amerie. people want her to make destiny’s child music and that’s not what she wants to do now. why is that so bad? i listened to her songs and three of them brought tears to my eyes: still in love with my ex (the pain in her voice was so raw, and i heard that she was crying in the studio while singing it); love (oh my God, i was so blown away by the feistiness and the urge to heal by this one); and this is love (sure as HELL this will be playing at my wedding along with dangerously in love-the song)! you know what? to each his/her own. music is becoming to mainstream now, it’s good to have a cd that can relax and empower you, and make you feel things you though were buried away. maybe what people need to go through some things in their lives to get where she’s coming from, i also broke up with a boyfriend over an ex, and i was so pissed off at the whole love game. i dunno i really hope she goes at least platinum and that people don’t sleep on her, but i feel that she will have a long career because she is a beautiful soul, and everyone even the haters can see that. she’ll shine, just you wait! and for your information she wasn’t gonna do the chair dance, the host brought up three guys to try to do the chair dance and he asked kelly to demonstrate. that’s it! wow! she’s desperate? so what would you call ciara and rihanna who were letting it all hang out in their recent videos? um yeah!

  16. Everyone I know had this album before it dropped. That’s definitely part of the issue in this case.

    Not only does your link not work, but you are incorrect. I do not post false information. You tried to post this link -> http://hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi, which is for last weeks sales.

    Below however is exactly what HDD had to say yesterday about Kelly’s sales. So next time you should check your info before you come here tellimg me to check mine.

    T.I. TOO MUCH: Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. will have the best-selling album in the country next week. Better known as Atlanta rapper T.I., the Grammy-winning hip-hop star’s new release, T.I. vs. T.I.P., on his own Grand Hustle label through Atlantic, looks headed over the 500k mark, heating up the summer sales season and easily making him next week’s #1 album. Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland is up next with her sophomore album for Columbia, Ms. Kelly, the follow-up to her 2002 effort, Simply Deep, on target for sales over 100k, according to reports from retailers still recovering from Fourth of July fireworks. RCA’s new Velvet Revolver album, Libertad, the successor to the 2004 double-platinum debut, Contraband, sees the rock supergroup at, or just shy of, the 100k mark. (7/5p)

  18. My friend was playing kelly’s new cd in her car. I like her music it’s really an upgrade from her last album. Hopefully she’ll go platinum. :thumbsup:

  19. y’all just go get the album and judge for yourselves. it’s only 9.99

  20. Stephanie,

    Girl you are on it! LOVE a strong Black sista!

    I bought the T.I.’s album. So I will be counted in the 500k mark…lol

    I can’t do Kelly right now. :noway:

  21. Well I plan to pick up Kelly’s CD today and Im really hoping that her first week sales are pretty good since that seems to be the determining factor on how the record companys promote their artist. To me, people are really bad about compairing one person the next. Beyonce is a beautiful talented woman and because of her standard of success people think that thats the ultimate thing and if you are not that then your nothing but thats not true. Kelly is talented and she does make good music. This CD is better than her first one (i heard some snippets on the internet) and im glad she chose to stick to her R&B roots. This conversation is really bigger than Kelly. There are so many wonderful artist out there making good music that get overlooked by the public and rejected by public radio because meaning less rap (not all but most) has taken over the air waves and thats all our youth listen to. But people just really need to wake up and stop compairing everybody to Beyonce. I love B to death, but if every artist made music like that what would be the point? Her music is hot but she is not the top ten count down lol. All of her videos are not on 106 and park or MTV because people like a variety. You can be in your own lane and still be successful and eventually you will get the respect. But more importantly you’re getting paid and recognition every thing else will fall in line after that. Go Kelly!!!!!!!!!

  22. Kelly is great. My only concern with her is that she doesn’t have an image and sound of her own.

    I thought she was on the right track with that super big curly hair she had when promoting DC’s final album. She shouldv’e ran with that look and went on to create outstanding (not mediocre) music. I like the first single from the Ms. Kelly album, but she honestly needs to take her music to another level because I really want to see her shine to her greatest potential.

  23. To all the :hater: …I like Kelly Rowland I hope that she goes platinum..It’s just kinda harder to sell albums as an R & B artist other than rappers cause all they need is a good beat and they straight..Kelly is just as talented as Beyonce she get HAS to have a good follow-up single..

    Umm Beyonce may not be on 106&park, but she for damn sure stay on MTV whenever a new video of hers comes out. So I dunno where that came from. But anyway, the main reason why Beyonce is more successful than Kelly is because Bee appeals more to the white folks than she does the black folks. Thats why you always see Bee at #1 on TRL but hardly ever on 106&park. And we all know that the white audience are more likely to buy the real album instead of the bootleg version that black folks tend to get.

  25. Cute girl. Nice album. I wish she had been all over the place promoting the album before it hit the store shelves instead of the day after. That might have helped boost the numbers a bit.

  26. I knew her album would sell less than 100,000 copies when Hits projected it to sell around that amount. I knew right then that about meant less than. This truly proves that Beyonce was Destiny’s Child and all the other girls were just her back up singers. I feel bad for Kelly but I didn’t buy her album either. I haven’t purchased any of Beyonce’s albums either though.

  27. That girl deserves so much more than what people gives her. Yall may say it’s not hert management but come on. Her albbum was not bad at all. I really thought she was going to do well, man! It’s ok I support her all the way. I weather buy her album but i wouldn’t waist my money on a diva-like singer or one that uses sex to sell. It’s ok she gone’ make it! GO KELLS!!!!!

  28. kelly please change that manager of yours and do you not someody else before you get mo support :thumbsdown:
