159! Michelle, this song is

159! Michelle, this song is too cute! I love the melody, the look, and the video. After seeing Michelle as Suga Avery in the Color Purple, I am a fan. She has the sassy confidence that can't be over looked. She seems to be going in a dance genre direction. I love the idea and would sooo rock out to this song in the club! she needs to get real funky with it and break out without a House song! I'm a supporter!

Exactly! People ALWAYS

Exactly! People ALWAYS trying to blame everyone else for these girls failures except the chicks themselves. kelly R's album failed cause it JUST WASN'T ALL THAT. The singles were bleh. She know damn well ghetto was a tired song and SHE choose to release that song as the second single. She admitted it in her own interviews. No one sabotaged her she did herself in by not making hot songs by not picking the best of the bunch to be singles. But, somehow its always Matt knowles or beyonces fault these girls cant get shine. Like Beyonce is at the studio making them record sub par songs.

[quote comment="97300"]I'm

[quote comment="97300"]I'm having such a hard time feeling bad for Michelle and Kelly. Michelle came out with a pop song to appeal to a whiter audience, so they try not to sound like R&B. Kelly will do it next. I mean Rihanna Sucks to me,but she's a pop artist that sells to these white people. I say do them, but when Michelle stuff doesn't sell she has this whack shit to blame.Any artist that rather tried in the Black audience for the white audienc....GOOD RIDENCE[/quote] I think you are wrong with that one. You could argue that rap music is the "blackest" music of all but I have heard that 80% of their music is purchased by white people and there are actually very few rap albums that I buy now. Meanwhile, I brought Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse, Fergie, and even Gwen Stefani's most recent albums. I think that music itself is changing. Pop music is merging with hip hop and vice versa and if any artist wants to be successful you have to be current. For example, would you say that Timbaland is selling out by working with artists of various races and producing pop music? I say that his music is good regardless and he is one of the best producers in the game. Black people shouldn't act like we have to only listen to or sing certain types of music. I mean we were the first to do many of the sounds that are out now.

Michelle should make a return

Michelle should make a return to gospel or make a smooth jazz album using her lovey smokey tone. She looks uncomfortable singing pop/r&b - during Destiny's Child days and now.

What makes Beyonce stand out is 1 she can sing but more importantly you can't picture anyone else covering a Beyonce song and doing it better. I like Break the Dawn but I can picture Kelly, Rihanna, Monica singing this song. This song and video does not stands out and/or says HERE I AM...IT'S MY TIME TO SHIINE! Anyone could have done this. This actually feels like a Kelly Rowland song and video. But again I do like the song and the video is okay. I won't be rushing to download it or purchase her album based on this single. But atleast she's trying...I'll give her that.[/quote] The other girls don't stand out cuz papa knowles don't let these gurls, especially, show their full potential.....lets be real. They have very different voices, but they are good singers. I tell people that kelly will never truly shine, cuz she's with that knowles crew. When she wakes up and see her solo career going nowhere, and realize that its always gonna be about bey, maybe then she'll get some common sense, and walk away from em, but doesn't look like she'll be doing that anytime soon. The plan is has always been that, no one else shine more than bey, whether its any of the gurls in the group, or anybody else.......see leaked tracks.[/quote] IDK about that Serene because I have seen DC perform and I have seen them perform as Individuals and uummmm, When you take away Beyonce from them, it seems like you just took away ALL OF THEIR ENERGY AND CHARISMA! I MEAN BEYONCE MAKES THESE GIRLS SHINE ON STAGE AND I'VE SEEN KELLY ON THE VIEW AND THE SAME MEDIA OUTLETS THAT BEYONCE'S ON, BUT KELLY'S PERFORMANCES SUCK ASS! THE BET AWARDS, BEYONCE GAVE HER THE STAGE AND SHE HAD THE WORSE DAMN PERFORMANCE. PEOPLE NEED TO REALIZE THAT PERFORMANCES ON THOSE SHOWS LIKE TRL, 106, THE VIEW, THAT IS 50%, HALF OF YOUR MARKETING AND PROMOTIONS CAMPAIGN, THEY DONT BRING IT LIKE BEY WHEN IT COMES TO THAT. THAT SOMETHING YOU CANT BLAME MATTHEW FOR, KELLY AND MICHELLE CAN ROCK A CROWD LIKE BEY OR SHOULD I SAY WITHOUT BEY!!![/quote] I agree, their performances without Beyonce are sooo bland. They dont interact with the crowd and get them hyped. Beyonce is the better performer and that also helps in her success![/quote] I totally agree![/quote] I DISAGREE!!!!! Kelly has a good performance without B, not too sure bout Michelle because Ive really only seen her perform gospel by herself! #1. BET Awards...Beyonce had an amazing set full of dancers and entertainment...but as soon as Kelly came on, the stage was empty, it was jus her dancers, he song was cut short and Eve came out! Wow, That was really messed up, she could have had more to her performace than that! Not to mention Kelly's mic problems! #2 Kelly always works the crowd in performances giving them a chance to sing along # Like This, wasnt really a bad song, it wasnt really a flop, yet had a better follow up single had been released on time Ms. Kelly could have done better...Ghetto (IMO BAD SINGLE) was released almost six months after Like This and her album. #3 Also everyones knows Simply Deep was rushed, because Delimma took off and Beyonce's "Work It Out" wasnt, so they rushed Kellys album, givingg B more time to prepare hers. Now dont get me wrong Beyonce is currently one of the best to ever do it!!!! But they have handled Beyonce and Kellys solo career differently from there first album...All those features Beyince had on DIL and Kelly had Joe Budden on SD...Shit just and right, and irs Kellys fault for sticking around....BUT HEY I LIKE MICHELLE SONG, THE VID WAS DECENT, HOPEFULLY SHE'LL HAVE SUCCESS, Everybody has an opinion, but give da girl a chance, she deserves it and its not like shes a BITCH! Or something...Sometimes people forget other people have feelings...

[quote comment="97264"][quote comment="97120"]Kelly and Michelle don't sell because... #1. W/ Kelly's first solo attempt she decided to go alternative, which basically lost her whole pop/r&b fan base, and that is hard to get back... #2 Michelle will suffer the same consequences with this effort because they both should of stuck with their core fan base #3 Beyonce is prettier than them, in a more mainstream way #4 Beyonce can sing circles around both of them #5 If your first single is not HOT and gets people's attention and buzz the label obviously won't be stupid enough to continue to waste money, pushing an album where no one is feeling the single... I mean "Like This' was cute, but it wasn't memorable or a banger or the type of song you keep your radio on all day to hear again neither is this song! #6 At the end of the day if your single is your best promotion! If it is hot you won't even need major promotion...Peep Alicia Keys "Songs in A Minor" that album was promoted about as much as Kelly's latest was, maybe even less, but Fallen was such a great single, everybody wanted to know who she was and when the album was coming out! #7 As the lead singer of the group(and rightfully so) of course Beyonce will sell millions because she is the LEAD! Which means she sings the MOST and gets MOST of the attention. Which makes it easier for people to respect her as a solo artist. For Kelly and Michelle not being lead singers, they might have had it even harder, having to prove themselves as solo artist after always playing the back role. #8 Beyonce just has "it" "It" is not something that can just be manufactured, "it" is something that comes from within...Beyonce shows more determination than any of the other girls in the group...and her live shows are awesome![/quote] THAT IT FACTOR IS CRUCIAL. YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT![/quote] I AGREE WIT SOME OF THE THINGS YOU SAID...BUT IF U REMEMBER... #1 In reference to Like This... Deja Vu, was basically garbage and Ring the Alarm wasnt too far behind, yet the label pushed B'Day which was a flop for Beyonce (meaning it didnt sell like DIL)!! Then they gave her Irreplacable, and it took off!!! #2 As far as Kelly losing her fanbase, she may have los it with the first cd, but then DC came back together, so more should have stood behindd her on this on! #2 Beyonce does have a more of a mainstream crossover look, but I wont say Kelly or Michelle are ugly. IMO K&M looks were experimented with, while they played it safe with Beyonce. #3 Beyonce can blow! But Kelly can aswell, But I will say its her fault she dosnt sing like she can, IMO Kelly holds back a lot...And Michelle can hold a powerful high note (Live in ATL DVD). #4 But Beyonce does have IT...She's Bad!!!! But beyonce was given more opportunity to SHINE as the lead singer...While Beyonce was singing live, Kelly and Michelle were singing to back tracks and that wasnt right AT ALL!!!! With all that said! Kelly is her on downfall, until she gets da balls to leave the Knowles camp, she'll never blow up. She'll always get second rate producers and solange as the writer!!! Michelle might have sum success only by accident, and thats only cause everyone doubts her and im sure the Knowels do to, so it would be unexpected if she was to blow up!

Its alright. She's doing

Its alright. She's doing whatever she can to sell...I think she should stick to Gospel if that's what's in her heart to do. Not everyone has to be a platinum selling artist...most artists aren't nowadays. BUT, she does play "sexy" way better than Kelly.

[quote comment="96505"]When

[quote comment="96505"]When are people going to stop blaming Papa Knowles for these girls short-comings? Their failure at success has little to do with his promotion, and more to do with Kelly and Michelle just not having the "It" factor. Some people are just meant to play supporting roles in the entertainment industry and there's no shame in that. They have a bigger advantage than the average singer seeking a career because they already had a built in fanbase, exposure to the media, and name recognition. If that doesn't jumpstart their career, then it means that they are just supporting players and not the main character. Nothing is wrong with that, but trying to place blame and find excuses for someone not being a breakout star is just ridiculous. I have supported both of these girls past projects out of being a fan of Destiny's Child, but would not have otherwise because they do nothing for me as solo artists. I wish Michelle great success and think she may have a better shot at it than Kelly, because it looks like she's at least trying to set herself apart.[/quote] I agree with you 100%! People need to stop blaming Matthew Knowles for everything. If Kelly really cared about her career, then she would've realized a long time ago to get a new manager. She has had plenty of chances to do that, and its her damn choice if she lets Papa Knowles continue to handle her career. And I agree with you on Kelly not having that "it" factor. I think Kelly is a good singer but she just doesn't have a lot of drive. I just don't see any 'fire' in her eyes when she performs. She just doesn't have that quality about her that makes you go "WOW."

The song is okay but the video fell flat. I feel like Michelle wasn't really bringing anything to the video. I wanted to see her get into the song but she just came off a bit dull. Michelle can do better that that.

I would love to "praise" (not phrase as your "un-ignorant" ass stated, lol) but i CANNOT be a hypocrite. I am far from a Be-yawn-ce fan, but i can't say the song is good when it's not! She had (as you said 2) #1 CD's (cuz i can only remember 1) and that means nothing, what if it was a slow week? Trina had a #1 album a coupla weeks ago, what does that mean?[/quote] PREACH! Whats wrong with people being able to voice their opinion? This is a blog, isn't it? If everyone was saying all good things about an artist, then wouldn't that be boring? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and it is okay if someone says that they dislike something. Just because I might not like a particular song, doesn't mean I'm "hating." It just means that I'm not feeling it. No big deal.

Well you go head on Michelle. I like it (the song). The video was ok. But like yall said she can do better. I also agree with who ever said that you could picture someone else singing it.

Ummm Beyonce has sold over

Ummm Beyonce has sold over 100 mill records and has never flopped on anything. Her and Mariah Carey are the most successful black female artists today so Beyonce is incomparable. Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, Ashanti, and so on are just so boring in performances. You either have "IT"or you dont. Michelle is better at singing gospel. This is just not for her and Im a Michelle fan.

[quote comment="96769"][quote comment="96628"]For the record, I loved the video. I didn't listen to the song, but I loved the video. But what kills me is all the hate coming from people. If this video had been done by anyone else-in the same way-people would haved loved it. Had Rhianna done this song and exact same video, people would have loved it. If Beyonce' had done this song and video-in the exact same way- people would have loved it. This girl, I feel so sorry for her because she cannot catch a break. And since everybody wants to compare the quality of her videos to Beyonce'... How is this cheap compared to "Get Me Bodied" which looked like it could have been done on a 250.00 budget? How is this cheap compared to "Green Light"? I love Bee. I truly think that she is one of the best that ever did it. But can we as Black Women stop comparing EVERY black female singer to her. Can a singer come out and just be in her own lane without being compared to Bee? Like I said, had Beyonce' come out with this song and video, people would have been all over it. The comments would have been, "Oh, this is Fire!" Stop people. Can you just open your minds for a minute and give someone else a chance? Damn, we black people love to tear one another down. Especially females. We are truly like a predator stalking our prey...ready to pounce. Damn shame. God damn shame.[/quote] Beautifully said, girl[/quote] PERFECTLY SAID!!!

I would love to "praise" (not phrase as your "un-ignorant" ass stated, lol) but i CANNOT be a hypocrite. I am far from a Be-yawn-ce fan, but i can't say the song is good when it's not!

There is an automatic bias to any black women who is not Beyonce. Even people who don't necessarily like her find themselves comparing every up and coming star to her and it is especially bad for Michelle and Kelly. I think we need to be conscious of trying compare everyone to Beyonce. I haven't once heard Michelle mention that her goal in life is to be like Beyonce. Therefore, we are holding her to a standard that she probably doesn't even strive for. She is striving to be herself and we should judge her on an individual basis.[/quote] I wouldn't call it a hatred but i guess i will admit to comparison, but not comparison in Beyonce is the best & no one else compares - more like I work hard for my money and if you want me to spend $12.99 of my hard earned money on you - YOU BETTER BRING IT! If you want me to pay $80 for a concert ticket - YOU BETTER BRING THE FIYAH FOR MY MONEY!

[quote comment="96630"][quote comment="96479"][quote comment="96448"]I hate to compare the girls from Destiny's Child 2 eachother but I have to. What makes Beyonce stand out is 1 she can sing but more importantly you can't picture anyone else covering a Beyonce song and doing it better. I like Break the Dawn but I can picture Kelly, Rihanna, Monica singing this song. This song and video does not stands out and/or says HERE I AM...IT'S MY TIME TO SHIINE! Anyone could have done this. This actually feels like a Kelly Rowland song and video. But again I do like the song and the video is okay. I won't be rushing to download it or purchase her album based on this single. But atleast she's trying...I'll give her that.[/quote] The other girls don't stand out cuz papa knowles don't let these gurls, especially, show their full potential.....lets be real. They have very different voices, but they are good singers. I tell people that kelly will never truly shine, cuz she's with that knowles crew. When she wakes up and see her solo career going nowhere, and realize that its always gonna be about bey, maybe then she'll get some common sense, and walk away from em, but doesn't look like she'll be doing that anytime soon. The plan is has always been that, no one else shine more than bey, whether its any of the gurls in the group, or anybody else.......see leaked tracks.[/quote] IDK about that Serene because I have seen DC perform and I have seen them perform as Individuals and uummmm, When you take away Beyonce from them, it seems like you just took away ALL OF THEIR ENERGY AND CHARISMA! I MEAN BEYONCE MAKES THESE GIRLS SHINE ON STAGE AND I'VE SEEN KELLY ON THE VIEW AND THE SAME MEDIA OUTLETS THAT BEYONCE'S ON, BUT KELLY'S PERFORMANCES SUCK ASS! THE BET AWARDS, BEYONCE GAVE HER THE STAGE AND SHE HAD THE WORSE DAMN PERFORMANCE. PEOPLE NEED TO REALIZE THAT PERFORMANCES ON THOSE SHOWS LIKE TRL, 106, THE VIEW, THAT IS 50%, HALF OF YOUR MARKETING AND PROMOTIONS CAMPAIGN, THEY DONT BRING IT LIKE BEY WHEN IT COMES TO THAT. THAT SOMETHING YOU CANT BLAME MATTHEW FOR, KELLY AND MICHELLE CAN ROCK A CROWD LIKE BEY OR SHOULD I SAY WITHOUT BEY!!![/quote] I agree, their performances without Beyonce are sooo bland. They dont interact with the crowd and get them hyped. Beyonce is the better performer and that also helps in her success!

[quote comment="96628"]For the record, I loved the video. I didn't listen to the song, but I loved the video. But what kills me is all the hate coming from people. If this video had been done by anyone else-in the same way-people would haved loved it. Had Rhianna done this song and exact same video, people would have loved it. If Beyonce' had done this song and video-in the exact same way- people would have loved it. This girl, I feel so sorry for her because she cannot catch a break. And since everybody wants to compare the quality of her videos to Beyonce'... How is this cheap compared to "Get Me Bodied" which looked like it could have been done on a 250.00 budget? How is this cheap compared to "Green Light"? I love Bee. I truly think that she is one of the best that ever did it. But can we as Black Women stop comparing EVERY black female singer to her. Can a singer come out and just be in her own lane without being compared to Bee? Like I said, had Beyonce' come out with this song and video, people would have been all over it. The comments would have been, "Oh, this is Fire!" Stop people. Can you just open your minds for a minute and give someone else a chance? Damn, we black people love to tear one another down. Especially females. We are truly like a predator stalking our prey...ready to pounce. Damn shame. God damn shame.[/quote] I call it Beyonceism!!

i say it's a decent video,

i say it's a decent video, and decent song. i wonder what demographic she's trying to reach. i did like the choreography w/ all the lifts, turns and twirls though.

I loved it and honestly i'm kinda surprised it turned out THAT WELL, she is talented in her own right...I give her a A- she looked beautiful, wasnt half naked and did her thing!

Lady Bleu- No hate here.

Lady Bleu- No hate here. Some people just have star quality and some don't. Michelle doesn't, Ashanti doesn't, you get the drift. There is a different dynamic of energy, that gets people involved when a certain artist presents a song. In my opinion even if, say Ciara, of whom I am not a fan, was singing this song, the impact would be different. She has energy, and natural talent (dancing) that would make the song a little livelier. Michelle just looks like she's trying too damn hard to fit in, and I give it a resounding FAIL!

IT IS THESE SAME PEOPLE WHO TALK OUT OF THEIR NECKS ABOUT MANAGEMENT, BUT, MANAGEMENT CAN'T MAKE ME NOR ANYONE ELSE ON HERE PTRCHASE ANYONE'S MUSIC. I BUY WHAT I LIKE, IF I DON'T LIKE IIT I DON'T BUY. I PURCHASED THE SINGLE ON I-TUNES. THE VIDEO GAVE ME A LIL EDGE TO LIKE THE SONNG A LIL MORE. I CAN HONESTLY SAY I AM MORE LOOKING FORWARD TO SOLANGE CD. I AM REALLY LOVING HER TRACKS. SOME OF YOU ARE REALLY IGNORANT TO THINK THAT MATHEW WANY KELLY, MICHELLE, OR SOLANGE TO FLOP. HE'S GETS A PERCENTAGE OFF OF THEM. DO YOU REALLY THINK HE WANTS TO LOSE MONEY? THE DISLIKE FOR BEYONCE IS SO GREAT THAT ALOT OF YOU JUST DON'T KNOW HOW RIDICULOUS SOME OF THE THINGS YOU TYPE SOUND! GOOD LUCK TO MICHELLE, EVERYONE IS ALREADY PREDICTING HER FAILURE, I HOPE SHE EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS. FOR THE ONES SAYING HOW SHE CAN GO FROM GOSPEL TO SINGING R&B, DID YOU KNOW MICHELLE STARTED OFF SINGING BACKGROUND FOR MONICA, WHEN DID MONICA SING GOSPEL? HER GOSPEL ALBUM WAS AFTER DESTINY'S CHILD ALBUM. SOME OF YOU NEED TO FIND SOME ORIGINALITY AND STOP RIDING OFF OF SOMETHING SOMEONE ELSE POSTS. KNOWING YOUR FACTS HELPS!

Sigh....why have they saddled Michelle with this Lifetime movie of the week soundtrack music? I mean it may burn up the Croatian dance charts but do her people really think this will fly here? Beyonce would never be given this lame crap and they know it. I predict a children's book in Michelle's future too.
