If you remember Monifah a 90's R&B female vocalist that had her first hit in 1995 on Uptown with I MISS YOU. a sexy but romantic PG image. By 1998 her star was already fading and she released the sexually explicit TOUCH IT in 1998!which includes the lyrics "do you really wanna touch it/do you really want to 🤬 with me tonight?" Yep sex sells when Kelly Came out in 2011 upping the sexiness to a play by play instructional on how to make her have an orgasm i was thinking is she trying tooooo hard to sell some records?? and it made me think of Monifah..

what do you think!

KELLY ROWLAND - MOTIVATION 2011

MONIFAH - TOUCH IT 1998
For the radio version in the video. "🤬 " was edited but you get the idea!

    It's what I've been saying all along. Appearing naked on magazine covers and album covers and the whole album is nothing but sex related. lol Kelly is trying to hard. Now the music is pushed to the back burner.

    Kelly is unfortunately one of the artists, that the label "doesn't know what to do with." She needs to go "diva" drop her whole team, and get Be, Hova, and Be's daddy in a marketing and strategy session so she can reach her potential. It should've taken her to the "Motivation", single to get a good song.

    She's very talented so she shouldn't have to do all that mess, but everything she does she is unfairly compared to Beyonce. So I guess she has to show some ass just to get some attention.

    No one wants to say what it is, Kelly Rowland just isn't a superstar and have that certain thing so they blame Beyonce for all her struggle imo. Truth of the matter is not everyone is Bobby Brown in the group, and someone has to be Ronnie Romance.

    Beyonce wasn't no nun. That's what they all do.

    Janet did it, Madonna pretty much started it, Britney does it, beyonce, Keri hilson, Christina etc...

    Even the men do it. That's a part of being a pop artist.

    The only wholesome one is Taylor Swift but she makes fairy tale music that little princesses can relate to. Once her stardom dies down, she'll cross over too.


    Lady gaga is a freak so even if she's not selling sex, she's selling something demonic.

    that's real 🤬 right there. She just isn't a superstar no matter how hard folks want her to be.

    I forgot Ciara, but yeah she does it too. Some become superstars from it while others look like wannabes...

    Eta: @lamont, yep I forgot j. Lo..

    We could probably name every female pop artist and they all pretty much sell sex.

    i disagree with you, going back to her old team is what was hurting her in the first place because the minute she left that management, now she finally has a hit single. dissassociating herself from them is the best thing for her career.

    WHITNEY HOUSTON

    Esperanza Spalding

    quality post

    and you also shouldn't forget that sex sells when it comes to media attention but it definitely doesn't sell records. how many artists really increased their sales through sex? not that many honestly, especially female singers since young girls don't want to hear you sing about a 🤬 🤬 you hard or some other freak 🤬 . ask keri or ciara.

    you better get new songwriters, producers,managers etc. or better yet change your profession cause i don't see the 2 named goin anywhere with their careers
