It’s official! Kelly Rowland has defied the odds to land the top spot on the Billboard chart!
Full story below….
After 10 weeks on the chart, the 30 year old’s Urban smash ‘Motivation’ hit #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. The Lil Wayne assisted cut jumps #2-#1, knocking last week’s chart topper Miguel and his ‘Sure Thing’ into second place. Meanwhile on the Hot 100, the sensual track climbs #26-#21.
Monumental in more ways than one, the feat sees ‘Motivation’ become Rowland’s biggest solo hit to date. A fact made even more noteworthy as it was only ever sent to Urban and Rhythmic radio (not Mainstream nor Pop).
While this is hands down vindication for Rowland, she’ll need to follow-up with another banger, if she and her label are to capitalise on the success of this ahead of the release of her ‘Here I Am’ LP.
For now, though, it’s safe to say: Kelly Rowland – the solo star- has finally arrived!
