    Used all her budget for Commander so she’s gotta film it in Beyonce’s basement.

  8. MissImpartial March 12, 2011

    The pic reminds me of Britney’s I’m a Slave for You. And which one of them is Kelly. Anyways hope it works out for her. She desreves to be successful.

  9. dee March 12, 2011

    If she dances, as the video is reminiscent of Janet Jackson “Rock with U” from the image and lightening, shown. I hope she does well. If Ciara can take “Ride” top 40, she can take this top 20 with her added popularity.

  10. TheRealBabyDre March 12, 2011

    1st of all no one is original these days … I don’t remember who was the last artist that made something original in the past 10 years ! Whatever ….. O_o
    I think Kelly is doing her thing right now … Looks like p*** but still hot !

  11. Muni March 12, 2011

    @KAKA I actually prefer the slow version. what is wrong with this new generation.

    So many people forgot about RnB it feel so good o hear it again!!

  12. quanberg March 12, 2011

    Haters stay maddddddd …. Kelly Kelly Kelly is coming best believe !!!!

  13. MissImpartial March 12, 2011

    @JJFan1814

    How do you know how Beyonce’s basement looks like. Were you naughty and she imprisoned you in there.

  14. Dom March 12, 2011

    Folks need to get real. The ‘urban’ single may be really good etc etc, but at the end of the day, its just going to be that, an urban song that will not sell to the masses. No sales, no money = you get dropped. Simple. I think kelly has good vocals but you need good single choice which cater to your fans but also appeal to the mass market.

    Mark my words!!!!!! This will be another ‘buzz’ single. A true fan will b able to see the bigger picture. Rihanna cant sing but she has excellent singles which are HITS.

  15. Jamie March 12, 2011

    @Kyus93

    If the other songs won’t be on the actual album, then they weren’t singles dumbass!!!! Motivation is the official first single so fall in line or fall the f*** back!!!!

  16. dr_tkwon March 12, 2011

    @ d first comment- Rihanna selling millions,thank God 4 her! But what did ‎​Ʊ benefit from it?? Did she help pay υя bills?? If †ђξ answer is №! Then why bring that up in another artist Post? In as much as we want 2 believe it’s true- NONE of these artists Я̩̥̊ competing with one another!!! KELLY it’s υя Time to shine! #NoFearNoDoubT

  17. jeremydante March 12, 2011

    i hope kelly stays in this lane for her new album. i love an urban sound & image on her. beyonce is good with that pop/innovation tip, kelly should stick to more earthy, edgy sounds, ‘motivation’ is that s***.

    rooting for kelly. hope she does well & her promo is up this time around.

  18. harvey March 12, 2011

    s*** s***,this should be a hit hit hit hellllooo lil weezy is on it,I-Tunes U.S will eat it up.

  19. spring March 12, 2011

    cant wait!!!!
    #MOTIVATION

  20. harvey March 12, 2011

    This better turn out like Nelly just a dream jim jonsin produced that too.and that earned him a Platinum Plate.so kelly you should get it this time;D

  21. Jamie March 12, 2011

    It’s only ONE picture, and here you haters go with your comparisons. Kelly’s very original, and Brittney and Rihanna may be bigger than solo Kelly, but solo Kelly sings both of these dysfunctional h** under the water any day so don’t get it twisted!!!! It’s Motivation bitchez!!!!

  22. Muni March 12, 2011

    WARNINGI

    She is coming in: KELLY ROWLAND, She told you that gonna bump like this.

    I am so f****** excited!!!

    HATERS 1st again come on give KELLY a break!!!

  23. Dave March 12, 2011

    I don’t think Kelly should stick to anything. She SLAYS dance, pop, euro & so many other sounds. If people don’t catch on, doesn’t mean it isn’t good. But, I like this direction as well. Hope the video turns out to be great

  24. jay March 12, 2011

    kelly its time to slay!!!!!! she deserves to be huge
    make sure u check out alex gaudino new single featuring kelly too.

  25. Blanco Family March 12, 2011

    @muni U GAVE ME LIFE! yasss r&b is DEAD. no1 wants to hear it no more. thats why R&B artists are doing Dance Music… or Electro-Pop s***..
    Kelly Rowland’s ” the show” was the closest to raw r&b ive heard in a long time she shud perform that song live

    Idk…

    I would like it to be a hit but I dunno. Who’s her audience? The dance crowd was perfect.

  27. Sean March 12, 2011

    seriously “Motivation” is gonnr flop, this might do well only on the urban charts in the US, but this is not worldwide standard! Kelly has again chosen the wrong single!

  28. BDABOSS March 12, 2011

    Wow! I can’t wait to see this video. I sure hope its to the slow version of the song!

  29. BEYONCEVSTHEWORLD March 12, 2011

    FLOP FLOP FLOP

  30. GangsterA March 12, 2011

    DEAD @JJFAN YOU SLAYED ME WITH THAT KELLY GORL THIS SONG IS NOT THE BIZZ WE NEED HUGE DANCE RECORD LIKE WLTO OR COMMANDER BUT THAT PIC IS HOT

  31. ditBOMB March 12, 2011

    Frank Gatson is gonna have my girl slaying this video…and the haters can’t take…lol

  32. Jose Mª March 12, 2011

    FLOPIVATION

  33. BDABOSS March 12, 2011

    @Dave I agree, and she also said herself that she isn’t going to let anyone put her in a box. I’m sure that there will also be another international single as well. Don’t worry U.K. fans.

  34. MissImpartial March 12, 2011

    There is a remix version of Motivation which was done by Diplo. I think this is going to be the international version.

  35. quanberg March 12, 2011

    She’s on her grind, performance after performance, video shoot – Collabos, NEXT UP – PROMO

  36. Dom March 12, 2011

    This is career suicide. Dnt think we are going to get an album. Record company has spent her whole budget on videos instead of hit singles!!! Mark my words, its gna flop. Im trying to support kelly but i gta b real, i cant support mediocre, no ma’am nat me

  37. Muni March 12, 2011

    If you love MUSIC I believe u might respect it as well so please support real MUSIC!!

    Support MS KELLY!!!

    And those of you that are saying that her audience is dance. Yes I don’t deny it she has some fans that know her from her dance side.

    BUT!!!

    The majority of her fans come from URBAN side that ‘s why is she is coming back to gain more popuprity before she can release any other dance/electropoo sound .

    Come on is common sense if you want to understand !!! If not goo luck to you cos KELLY is coming and she is coming STRONG this time HATERS don’t bother her

    SHE is doing what she likes and making her millions!!

  38. raydeeohcity March 12, 2011

    OK NOW i can comment on this fool again…i ran outa ish to say

    But this new U.R.B.A.N single is what i been waiting 4 and its the s***. In the car the speakers bleed to this track. Real s*** real laid back. Her dance s*** was blowing me and apparently everyone else since they are unheard of now.

    What i didnt care for was the gimmicky lil wayne feature. Yes hes the man in rap-land and does his thing on the track but in this case it looks like a desprate attempt to assure a hit. “OH LETS SHOVE A HIGH PROFILE RAP FEATURE AND WE’LL SUCCEED.” NOT ALWAYS but ill give her the benefit of the doubt since the song cranks.

    Major kudos to kelly for finally stepping back into her original lane. It seems effortless for her to lay down tracks like this.

    PLEASE PLEASE KEEP IT up H**!

  39. Monica March 12, 2011

    I Love her solo its interesting for instance I Never seen this side of her the comeback video was s*** but I Think this video might be a lot sexierrrr and its exciting to see this side of her I Pretty sure most of the public have never seen this side of her either so seeing people try new things is really entertaining I Hope the video delivers the goods because I Love this record and so do a lot of people I Heard it on the radio a couple of times if done right this could do wonders for her career in the us I Love image over seas but I Am a us fan and I Would love to see more of her and I Love her even more for staying r&b becaus her last r&b record was exstremely slept on!

  40. Muni March 12, 2011

    @DOM no1 in forcing un to support KELLY, she has real fans that will be with her in good and bad times OK!

    KELLY will win stop preaching!!

    She will become the baddest chick very soon trust me!!!

  41. AuntieJackie March 12, 2011

    I don’t like this song, every damn song I like, she never releases. Her version of smooches was phenomenal. *Sigh* The video looks great though, and I hope the song succeeds. I don’t think it will, though. A lil’ wayne feature? That’s SO tired. Destiny’s child has a lil wayne feature on ‘Soldier’ waaaaaay back in the day.

  42. KAKA March 12, 2011

    I am so excited because I am almost sure this is a dance video. Come on people I know My girl will never let me down by doing the slow version with lil wayne.
    She gonna dance hopefully and not staying in this basement touching herself. They gonna pull out the video and the actual sound at the same time.

    I am almost positic. Please kelly dont make me wrong

  43. DANCE DIVA March 12, 2011

    [email protected] KYUS93 GIRL F*** RIHANNA THE NO TALENT S*** AND U TOO. MY GIRL KELLY IS GETTING READY TO SLAY BABY. FRANK GATSON IS GOING TO HAVE KELLY, THE SECOND B**** N COMMAND AFTER BEYONCE. BTW JUST BECAUSE A SONG IS A SLOW R&B/HIP HOP SONG DOES NOT MEAN IT WILL FAIL ON THE BB HOT100, IGNORANCE AT IT BEST. SMH

  44. Blanco Family March 12, 2011

    ever since britney spears did that in SLAVE 4 U everybitch is doing it. kelly do something original cuz this looks like every other video

  45. DION-ISH March 12, 2011

    This Seriously feels like Deja Vu …Like how many times is she going to release new promo pics, singles, and videos before she just NOT release the album or push it back YET again??

  46. Dollar$ign$kills March 12, 2011

    Take Lil Whine of the song and its good

  51. yall live to hate March 12, 2011

    I love Kelly and obviously some people hate her for trying her best to provide us with great music… all everybody is talking is hit hit hit… its not all about that. Do u like the song is the question.. its a lot of songs on the top of the charts what’s not hit material but the artist has a strong fanbase… Kelly is trying to get in touch with both sides… hop off her D***. She obviously motivating yall to hate

  52. lenor March 12, 2011

    this is one hard working girl!!!!!!! go kelly! motivation is hot! and this video looks really grown n s***! kelly is looking more beautiful than ever. shes glowing!

  53. lenor March 12, 2011

    GO GO GO GO #MOTIVATION!!
    #TEAMKELLY

  54. Yellow Gorillah March 12, 2011

    Yaaaas I’m real feeling this Motivation song real s***

    I think she should make a Pop and rnb album
    Have her euro pop songs for the white mass
    and songs like Motivation for urban!

    But Good luck to her.

  55. Who’s Cedric? March 12, 2011

    LOOOOOVE this song!

  56. E11 March 12, 2011

    no one producer wants to give their best beats to kelly when she will flop with it. they all saving their best work for bey. #letsberealnow

  57. S*** March 13, 2011

    Im actually liking this song (JUST hearing it) more than Comander ETC. Im starting to think Euro/Pop WAS NEVER her real Niche, This & Smooches is the best Ive heard of her recently. She needs to stick to her Urban/R&B Roots… & leave that generic mess alone is she wants to really do it.

  58. S*** March 13, 2011

    This is her REDEMPTION, she better go Hard or else. Bey is ALMOST finished with her album 😐

  59. S*** March 13, 2011

    Kelly is seriously Coming for Skeri Whilson’s Wig!!, :0

    I see you Kelly 🙂

  60. kass March 13, 2011

    HATERS EAT YOUR HEART OUT!!!!!!!! IF U DONT LIKE KELLY WHY DO U LOOK OUT FOR HER AND SPEND TIME COMENTING ON HER STUFF! GO KELLY CANT WAIT FOR MOTIVATION AND UR ALBULM ….. U ROCK!

  61. Royalkev March 13, 2011

    The clip definitely looks hot! It’s very Janet Jackson of her. [email protected] this song being Kelly’s first official release – stop playing! What does that mean she had 15 teasers?! I wish her luck, but I seriously don’t think “Motivation” is strong enough to push the album. Anyway, no hate here… I sincerely hope I’m wrong, because it’s time for her to have her own solo success.

    *New post*ThePagewithroyalkev.blogspot.com(…Still a place for EVERYTHING! )

  62. princebarbietv March 13, 2011

    I think Kelly knows her time is running out which is why this video is being filmes so soon after the single surfaced,
    This is Kellys year to slay and if she slays in the same era as a Bey release wtf the haters gone say then!
    @princebarbietv

  63. S*** March 13, 2011

    & Im Liking the VOCALS, Production, Lyrics, & even the ‘Go, Go, Go, Go’ Part, WOW KELLY!!!

    This is the best I heard ALL YEAR THUS FAR. :0

    R.I.P KERI & C-ERROR… 😐

  64. guttaboy March 13, 2011

    IF THE VIDEO WAS CHEAP- I WOULD READ HOW SHE’LL NEVER MAKE IT. nOW THAT SHE’S GOT A BUDJET, STILL, THE HATERS WILL TALK
    HAKE THEM HATERS OFF KELLS!!!!!!!!!

    I LIKE HER BECUZ SHE KEEPS FIGHTING- WHEN LOVE TAKES OVER AND WHAT A FEELING ARE PROOF THAT SHE BELONGS IN THE GAME. HATERS FALL BACK AND WAIT

  65. quanberg March 13, 2011

    There is a time to just stop hating and the time is now ……. Forget that Beyonce is coming out and whom ever else …… Kelly is going to shine, the song is hottt, i like lil wayne’s verse …… kelly’s voice is powerful, clean and crisp …. #teamkelly we got this

    @Muni

    But people didn’t support her last R&B album. I dunno though. I hope this works.

  67. luvey March 13, 2011

    Gosh why does everybody hate Kelly so much? Could it be that she is a threat?

  68. BREEZYTHEBEST March 13, 2011

    Reminds me of Britney’s “slave 4 u ” video.

  69. Jamie March 13, 2011

    Kelly’s definitely a threat–a triple thread; she can sing, act, and dance, and with a fiyah song such as Motivation which almost everybody seems to be vibing to, a video to match will only solidify her as one of the hottest chicks in this industry. I ready!! Go, Go, Go, Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. dang March 13, 2011

    why is it that white artists always use a mix of races and black artists (save the King) all use blacks? Racist much?

    Why is it that my fellow Bey stans come after Kelly so much?
    I mean, damn. I wish her nothing but success.
    I’ll support her when she makes music I love though.

  74. Bey’knight March 13, 2011

    @kavion
    Love u didn’t seem like u wished her that well on the “what a feeling” post anyways I loved bey dating back to dc so I love kels too love bey mote though cus she has more material

  75. ditBOMB March 13, 2011

    I was on the set today and she wowed me! So glad that Frank and his team choreographed this. He knows what she is capable of and pushed her. This will be her best video yet. Promise! Haters get ready to stay pressed.

  76. Laurie March 13, 2011

    “Used all her budget for Commander so she’s gotta film it in Beyonce’s basement.” I have to say this comment is funny though I didn’t some haters could be funny anyway lool.

    JJFan1814 and funky01:
    oh my god shut the f*ck up before I kick your sorry asses out of here. Does it make you feel good to put others down? trying to compensate for something?…… hating cause you wish someone would cheer your name, buy your music, know your face? I cant stand people who feel the need to put others down. just keep your lies and just plain stupid comments to yourselves. You are just pathetic and rude. Get some class! Especially Beyonce fans. Geez, fans of DC should not split up and just support one, we should support all of these ladies in their endeavors and wish them the best. So get out of your basement where you are sitting ALONE AND MISERABLE and stop hating on a beautiful talented woman.

    BUZZ SINGLE # 6???? MOTIVATION VID PIC LOOKS LIKE SLAVE 4 U…… WTF IS GOING ON KELLY….. LORD HELP

  81. BDABOSS March 13, 2011

    It’s amazing how long she’s been in the business almost like non-stop. Not many can say the same about their favorite artists. Kelly’s team know what they are doing. Everything will fall into place. If anyone has payed any attention, there was a post directly below this one for another dance track, which will suit the international audiences needs. “Motivation” will be an urban hit over here in the states, and I can almost guarantee that “I’m That Chick” will be released and will do well on relevant charts over here as well. It doesn’t sound like a pop hit, but sometimes you never really can tell with the U.S.’s listening audience. It might go on to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. I wonder if “On and On” will be on the album? I can definitely see that song charting well.

  82. Taylor March 14, 2011

    Some gay lesbian dance club?? How is this impressive – NOT!!

  84. KD March 14, 2011

    Didn’t this chick say that the reason why she did not release the comeback video or song is because she was worried about the (sexually charged) message that it was sending? Then why the flip is she releasing a video where she looks like she is having an orgy with fifty other people?

    I guess when all else fails…

  85. Rowldawg March 14, 2011

    @ KD shut the f*** up b****…she did release the comeback video!!!!…go on youtube and you will find it…do your research before you start s***…..stay pressed and irrelevant b****

    Go, Go, Go, GOOOOO!!!! Lol! I’m not too sure about the song, but after seeing the photo, at least the video will be interesteing and will probably pump the song… GO KELLY!

  87. Cheers (Drink to That) March 14, 2011

    The song SHOULD NOT have seen the light of day…. but I’m glad she’s FINALLY releasing something!

  88. lola March 14, 2011

    Kyus93
    Is this post about Rihanna? No, it isn’t; why the hell even bring up that 5 headed slutty b****? Who cares if she sold 3.5 million worldwide? Wasn’t you dumbass stans saying that she sold that amount 3 months ago? Liars! She really only sold 3.2 million and shipped out the rest. That’s horrible for someone of her status!!!!! Shouldn’t she be up to at least 5 million by now? Plus, Good Girl Gone Bad sold 9 million copies! Looks like someone is loosing millions and millions of fans.

    DEE CERROR’s Ride didn’t get in the Top 40. It reached 41! LOL

    This song is okay, there’s a remix that’s faster and sounds better than the original, but I do hope it does well. Skeri’s “Pretty Girl Flop” reached the Top 30 so hopefully, this will do the same or even get in the Top 20.

  89. MaKila Richards March 14, 2011

    I am loving this song & this video looks to be promising from the pic. Its not like Kelly isnt talented anyways so I for one cant wait to see the outcome. And to steady compare her to th elikes of Bey & Britney shows just how much of a threat ppl really see she can be. As for the “Slave 4 U” comparisons bring em on. Her video wasnt the 1st to be done like that & it wont be the last. Stop hatin. Kelly is far from a flop & her vocals are far from failure. I mean she came from one of the greatest groups of all time & altho ppl are Bey this & Bey that, NONE of them Bey included would be the stars they are today & can very well become if they hadnt been in that group. Instead of wastin time hatin on Kelly give props where they should be given.

  90. Lebo(CaribbeanBoi) March 15, 2011

    Ms KElly kicks ass … baby lookin s*** …

  91. KD March 15, 2011

    @ Rowldawg aka Rowland’s personal b****…

    Don’t embarrass yourself in public love, she did not release the video officially…where have you seen the video other than youtube? Talking about how I need to do research. I swear stans are the dumbest people on earth.

  92. Liliam December 23, 2011

    Deep thought! Thanks for conbtiruting.
