*Kelly Rowland has somewhat struggled to get where she wants to be in her solo career, but with her latest single, “Motivation” featuring Lil Wayne, she thinks she may have found what she’s been looking for all along.
“I was talking to my product manager,” Rowland told Billboard. “I said I wanted people to know that this is the record, the sound I¹ve been working toward… that here I am. And she said, that’s the title. It just connected with my heart and the music as well. It stands for everything I’ve gone through and thought about for this record as a woman. It’s very strong.”
“Motivation,” her single from forthcoming album, “Her I Am,” sits at No. 4 this week on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Song charts.
And as she celebrates her career movement, she also congratulated Beyonce for being honored this year with the Billboard Millennium Award.
“I’m so excited for my sister. Nobody deserves it more than she does,” says Rowland. “Ever since we were kids, we’ve worked hard, and she’s carried that into her solo career.”
