So long, dance music commander. Kelly Rowland has officially retreated to make baby makin’ R&B cuts.
We should’ve known better than to expect for Ms Kelly to pull the trigger with another killer dance anthem. If ‘Motivation’ is indeed a sign of what’s to come, I think it’s safe to say that an urban-inflected studio album is on the way for this flawless diva who can’t seem to catch a solo smash.
While there’s nothing incriminating about ‘Motivation’ per se, it’s definitely far from the life-changing and immediate hit she desperately needs right now. This track could sit itself down with the other mid-tempo fillers on her last album and you wouldn’t even notice.
I have officially removed myself from discussions of this track because I think it’s best to see how urban music fans react to this. I mean, take a listen. She couldn’t have been more blatant about getting back in their good books.
“Push harder, you’re almost there now. So go lover, make mama proud… and when we’re done, I don’t wanna feel my legs.” Pause.

Feed Limmy verdict: nonchalant snap.
Mighty snap = this is a hit.
Bounce snap = instantly likeable.
Lightbulb snap = you will need a moment to get into this.
Nonchalant snap = need I say more?
No snap = please cease and decease.
Kelly Rowland feat. Lil Wayne‘s ‘Motivation’ is co-written by Rico Love (the man behind Beyonce‘s untouchable ‘Sweet Dreams’) and produced by Jim Jonsin (who produced the defining Michelle Williams track ‘Hello Heartbreak’).
Expect for Kelly to confirm the official release date for ‘Motivation’ and of course, that elusive third studio album soon.
