Kelly Rowland Responds To ‘Motivation’ Diss

Kelly Rowland by Derek Blanks 6 Kelly Rowland Responds To Motivation Diss

As R&B/dance commander Kelly Rowland is gearing up for a heavy promotional push of her July 26th slated ‘Here I Am’ album, the singer spoke with BET.com to address one of the week’s biggest headlines.

Famed producer Jeff Bhasker, whose  production credits include work on R&B leading ladies’ Alicia Keys and former bandmate Beyonce (’4′) albums, took to Twitter to say:

Check Miss Kelly’s comeback after the jump:

Via Bet.com:

On Bhasker’s comments:

“You know what, the record speaks for itself. Opinions are like **sholes, everybody’s got one. He’s made wonderful music with my sister and other artists. There’s no reason for me to say anything negative. Cause I won’t tell you the thought that is really in my head. I’ll just kill ‘em with kindness.”

On the success of ‘Motivation’:

“Number one feels like number one.  It feels wonderful. Especially for it to be on the charts so long. I think ‘Motivation’ opened up a different chapter for me. It really did.[...][The album] is along the same lines when it comes to an urban sound. When I listen to everything back to back, when I was sequencing it, that’s when it felt really good in my spirit.”

On her BET Awards performance:
“I was dreaming about performing on the BET Awards stage. I would dream and pray about it. When you ask God for it , he’ll deliver. Then he wants to throw Trey Songz in it. Trey and I had really great chemistry. We rehearsed. We were prepared and excited.[...]I wasn’t expecting that kiss, trust me. I didn’t even know he did that until after. When you’re on stage and you’re moving…it was really weird.”
Kudos to Kelly for taking the high road, something the ‘Grown A. Woman’ singer does often when faced with controversy.  However, even if just once, wouldn’t you guys like to hear K.Row just really go there with the naysayers?

    Since we’re being honest, I got into the song because everybody was saying how great it is.

    It’s a good record but it’s not “Dilemma”, Kelly’s signature is missing. Any decent singer could have done the same job and the song would have hit #1 on the R’n’B anyway.

    So lets get this straight,Mr. Producer Guy here responsible for many of the songs on the flopping snoozfest that is ’4′ has the audacity to call a song thats been number 1 on the R&B Charts weak? He needs to sit way the hel down. This guys is not a good look for Beyonce right now and she needs all she can get for this flop album. For shame.

    It would be nice if Beyonce would come to Kelly’s defense for once. Especially since Beyonce worked with the idiot who posted that asanine rant. Why would a producer of all people say something like that about an artist’s work. Especially an artist that he knows is close to the artist he most recently crafted songs for. He may very well be trying to start something, either that or he’s an attention w****.

Beside I have never even heard of this Jeff Bnasker character. . . its always irrelevant people that have to speak negative about someone else doing well. Regardless of what anyone says Kelly Rowland is beautiful inside and out. . this response is just proof of that.

    I hope you guys who love her so much go support her ALBUM and not SINGLE…….

    Lets see who is to blame this time around when her flop. Her fans and naysayers can’t blame Beyonce, because she have been low key and her major promotion have been out of the country…She is back in the states and still have not did any promotion…….They can’t blame Mathew Knowles, because he was fired………..Kelly had a Number one single with Motivation” countless remixes, a video that hav over 27 million views…

    So if and when she flops, The fans and naysayers will turn that pointed finger at themselves this time around…..

    @ INDEPENDENT THINKER. think independently. what would beyonce say that kelly would not say?? do you think that Beyonce knows half of what is going on. hell no she doesn’t. why just jump in her crotch like that.

    Anyway everyone have their opinion and since so many people were bragging about the song I listened and I completely hated it. I love kelly but the song was horrible. I thought i had a problem. I kept quiet until now. i respect her and the fact that the song made it to #1.
    dc3 girls were trained well and if the public or anybody thinks they will see these girls go off on the media, they will suck on salt. love them.

    I don’t think the song is bad at all, I can actually relate to the appeal that others have for the song. It’s just not my cup of tea mainly b/c in general, minus a few exceptions, I’m not usually into contemporary R&B unless it has an old school or neo-soul vibe, or is mixed with some other genre like soft rock or pop. That being said I think the producer has a right to his own opinion but he should not have made his opinion so publicly. It’s just not necessary and can only generate negativity. Twitter can be such a vehicle for negativity, wish people wouldn’t use it for that purpose.

    Kelly handled that in a very professional and mature manner. I’m glad that she didn’t take the, “eye for an eye” approach, because it would have made her look childish and petty. She actually came out on top, making him look stupid in the process. Even though he’s entitled to his opinion, I think the way he gave it made him look like he’s jealous of the little success that she’s having with her #1 song on the R&B Billboard charts. So, Kelly did the right thing by taking the high road. It made her come out looking classy without stooping to his level.

    What is wrong with you people on these blogs? Everyone isn’t going to have the same opinion as you do. There is no reason to be hostile. Motivation is an surprise hit. Had Weezy not been on there who would actually care? People hate Beyonce so much they want Kelly to succeed. How is 4 a flop? Will Kelly see 4 numbers? No she won’t. Even with her lowest numbers Kelly still won’t outsell her. Where we’re you all at during the release of grown woman,rose colored glasses and whatever flop single she released? She gets one top 20 and now all of a sudden she is everything? Talk about being ironic,cliche, and obvious. Most of you were talking s*** about her now all of a sudden a top 20 and a lipped BET awards performance makes her better than beyonce?”REALLY”? A “PRODUCER” someone who knows music. Gives criticism that is actually factual and the first thing you do is talk s*** and whine? You stans and fanatics on this site and every other site need some help.

    I really hate he said that, cause people react like Beyonce said it, then they bash her singles as if they didnt chart at all. but at the end of the day it created buzz around kellys album cause her Promo is way off. I hope she brings it next week with the promo because I dont think Motivation shouldn’t be the only song to carry the album in the U.S. All i have to say kelly had a hit on her last album with bump like this on the R&B charts and it was the only single but her promo was a little better. I just hope all of these kelly fans who popped out of no where go out and buy the album and not sit behind the computer looking at the itune charts and hits daily double then come on the blogs to talking. With proper support from her fans who liked her international single commander and the U.S single Motivation she should do between 150,000 to 250,000 first week.

    I do have to disagree with everything he said about Motivation though, The song is hot!! & does deserve all the success. a Little Out-Dated though, Sounds like something Bey would have ALLOWED Kelly to put on Destiny Fulfilled :(

    Motivation is good. But The Album However: http://i.imgur.com/DN0a4.gif

    & Speaking on the BET Award performance, it WASNT all that!! Bey End of Time at Glasto was Much better & Bey had an entire show to do while all Kelly had on her agenda was the EBT Awards. Her performance was too hyped up, it was OKay but dont push it. :?

    OK AND SO WHAT IF HE IS A BEYONCE STAN? HE RECOGNIZES TALENT THAT IS ALL! IM NOT SAYING KELLY DOESN’T HAVE TALENT BUT YOU ARE ACTING LIKE IT’S BEYONCE’S FAULT WHY HE SAID WHAT HE SAID! I AS A BEYONCE FAN I AM ALSO SHOCKED AT WHAT HE SAID BECAUSE I DON’T THINK MOTIVATION IS ANYTHING OF WHAT HE DESCRIBED IT!

    Stop worrying about Beyonce’s singles on the charts they will move up in time! Smh at the non BEYONCE fans checking up her stats! I cannot! LMFAOO! :D

    @BLAME, I didn’t realize he produced ‘I Care’ that’s one of my favorites from ’4′ (it’s actually in my top five along w/ Rather Die Young, Love On Top, Party, & Lay Up Under Me). The lyrics and vocal arrangement on ‘I Care’ are very profound and impressive. He may have earned a respectable opinion but I still don’t agree with his decision to put that opinion on Twitter.

    This Jeff fool is in Beyonce ‘s pockets someone paid him to say this stupid mess.
    I have always been DC and Kelly Row fan. The snippets that I have heard most
    of the song sound pretty good. No matter what the haters say I will be buying
    the album.

    I think her response was very mature & professional. She has been in the Game since she was a teenager & is obviously well media trained so she knows how to handle herself when hate comes her way. Although, like she said, she didn’t say what she felt like saying which proves that it did bother her.

    It’s funny cause the first time I heard ‘Motivation’ I liked it, but I didn’t think it would be a hit cause I thought it was too slow & a bit boring. She had been off the scene for a while & I tthought she should have went with something more uptempo, not a slow r&b ballad but I’ll admit I was wrong. No one can deny the song was a huge r&b hit & definitely put her back on the map. I think it kinda took people by surprise & now people are rooting for her again.

    I do notice that people keep saying Wayne ‘gave her a hit’. *rolls eyes* It is obvious that a LOT of artist are all up Wayne’s ass for a collabroation and I do believe that a lot of people think he can get them a hit. HOWEVER Kelly carried that track! Her vocals were on point & it was just a hot song! Nothing about Wayne’s verse was memorable or stand out. Yeah he has a way of making a song hot but It wasn’t one of his best verses at all. Honestly I think the song could have been a hti without him. Kelly definitely earned her No. 1.

    I didn’t know or had even heard of this Bhasker dude until now! He does sound like a bitter b**** upset over the fact that she has earned herself a No. 1. I mean, if you are a songwriter writing, making hits for other aritst & obviously making dough, why diss another artist song? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but he just seems like he has personal disliking towards Kelly. It was so uneccassry the way he said it.

    He reminds me of Frank Ocean, a good songwriter but he’s a jackass for publically dissing another artist on twitter. I’m pissed that both of these fools wrote two of my favorite songs on Bey’s album! *sighs*

    @Va stand up. Do you really believe Kelly would’ve made motivation a hit on her own? I doubt it. I understand and also know everyone is entitled to their own opinions,however alot of you younger people use the word”Hater” way too much. To display differences and opposition is one of the things that makes us human. We are not all going to agree on the same thing and that’s just life. Even if the context of comments are negative. It still doesn’t make a person is a hater just means they Don like it.

    So what was the point of him saying this. Motivation has been the #1 R&B song in the country for over 2 months and the video has nearly 30 million views with no promo. Kelly has had a hard as time trying to break free from Matthew Knowles/Beyonce/Destiny’s Child shadow and she’s finally doing it and now people want to start coming at her and for what. Who does not know Here I Am will not outsell 4. Beyonce is one of the top 5 female singers in the world along with Gaga, Adele, Britney and Rihanna, so why wouldn’t her album sell without promo or a hit single. I am truly shocked that Kelly hasn’t been promoting since her BET Awards performance. That would’ve been an entire month of massive promo plus the release of a 2nd single, Here I Am could be expected to push around 200K-250K next week, but now it’s only expected to sell around 100K, which is sad, because Lay It on me, Feeling Me Right Now or Down for Whatever are all great single choices. I don’t know what’s going on with Kelly and Universal/MoTown but they need to get it together.

    I REALLY WISH KELLY THE BEST! SHE HASN’T DONE A LOT OF PROMO SEEMINGLY DUE TO HER XFACTOR GIG IN THE UK. I BELIEVE IT’S OVER NOW, AT LEAST THE AUDITIONS AND SHE WILL BE ABLE TO FOCUS ON HER PROMO HERE. BUT I HAVE TO SAY…PEOPLE BEEN TALKING ABOUT HER (WHETHER GOOD OR BAD) A HELL OF A LOT. THAT’S PROMOTION AS WELL….ALL THESE ARTICLES, THE SONG EVEN MOVING UP ON POP RADIO…NOBODY THOUGHT SHE’D COME OUT WITH A SONG SOOOO HOT AND THEY HATING….SO I HOPE WHEN THE RECORD SHIPS….SHE SHUTS THE HATERS DOWN ONE MORE TIME. I’LL HAVE MY COPY OF HERE I AM….ON TUESDAY……and yall know the “haters” will have the illegal download on the low.

    You know I have to give it to Kelly for being so professional on this matter. Though, i won’t be as harsh, i must say that “Motivation” isn’t my favorite song from her. Idk why i just cannot get into it & i’ve tried to, but i just can’t. Wish her all the best & i will definitley be buying her album!

    Nice retort by Kelly!!! I am one of those feeling ‘Motivation’. Beautifully haunting- seductive, s***, sensual, sultry…I am so happy Kelly took the risk to trust her collaboration team- Director Sarah Chatfield, Choreographer Frank Gatson, and Lil Wayne.

    I would add- Jeff Bhasker’s reveiw is suspect whether it came early or late given his ties to the ’4′ album. Petty people are such a drag. News flash, there are no one and only fine artists. Life dispels that notion over and over again. It is a western limitation that continues to blemish the gifts and talents of so many. Stay human, the spotlight is a broad brush and has room for the many talented people. I think Kelly and Beyonce know that. So, for the rest of us, there is no reason to take one or the other- both are young, gifted, and Black.
