Rowland Reveals ‘Motivation’ Video Premiere Date

Published: Wednesday 30th Mar 2011 by Sam

With her new single ‘Motivation’ receiving heavy airplay on Urban radio, Kelly Rowland has aptly released details of the video’s premiere.

All the details after the jump…

Writing on Twitter last night, the 30 year old singer confirmed that the visual for the Lil’ Wayne assisted single is set to premiere next Monday (April 4th). What’s more, reliable suggests Rowland will debut the clip herself on BET’s 106 & Park.

Shot earlier this month, the reportedly steamy video was directed by Sarah Chatfield, and co-choreographed Frank Gatson and Luam.

Ms. Kelly’s coming!

For those who’ve yet to hear ‘Motivation’, take a listen below…

    This song doesn’t move me too much, but the video seems like it’s going to be hot. I definitely see potential. If Kelly keeps it s*** and delivers, this may be a hit! It’s really not a bad record, I just think it’s a little dated. Still, Kelly sounds great on it though.

  7. Angelyc_Aries March 30, 2011

    Wow I’ve checked some of Luam’s videos on youtube, but I didn’t know she was getting in with the stars like that! Congrats to her. And I hope she and Frank Gaston helped Kelly in the way she needs it. I haven’t listened to the song yet, but I’ll wait until I see the video to do so.

  8. Katrina Carter March 30, 2011

    I love love LOVE Motivation!!

  9. CHHECKEDSHIRTCHRIS March 30, 2011

    Pause. Luam is doing the choreo??? Okay I wanna see this. Now.

  10. JJFAN1814 March 30, 2011

    Does anyone care? lol. For real…

  11. magic March 30, 2011

    yasssss my queen coming hard this time! and ain’t backing up! luam killed the choreography
    people who seen the video keep saying or were on the set keep saying that this is the kelly we been waiting for all these years

  12. 123456 March 30, 2011

    i think universal is paying radio now

    really weird

  13. KD March 30, 2011

    I absolutely hate this song…it is very blah kinda like Ghetto from Ms. Kelly, which bombed. This chick should focus on dance music because her voice was made for it…I can’t stop playing “What A Feeling” that song alone showcases the fact that Ms Kelly can bring the fire, she just needs to believe in herself. YOU CAN DO IT MS ROWLAND

  14. GET MOTIVATED B****** March 30, 2011

    Kelly is coming and you naysayers just have to DEAL. MOTIVATION IS A SMASH IN THE MAKING

  15. GET MOTIVATED B****** March 30, 2011

    @KD SHUTUP enjoy her dance collabs. While the masses enjoy her urban smashes

  16. Who’s Cedric? March 30, 2011

    LOOOOOOVE this song!! Can’t wait to see this video, hopefully she delivers and isn’t a disappointment like the Commander video turned out to be.

  17. Aubrey Beyince Harper March 30, 2011

    I’m loving keIs can’t wait for the video to come out and her album this is her year to shine
    *sidenote also Bey is coming too I can’t wait what she has cooked up these two are going to be fire, 2011 get ready

  18. GET MOTIVATED B****** March 30, 2011

    @123456 they haven’t pad yet. The audience is not that huge to have payola

  19. DANCE DIVA March 30, 2011

    @BEY’KNIGHT You got that right! This is the year of QUEEN B and THE DANCE DIVA AKA MS KELLY ROWLAND. I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE VIDEO AND IM GONNA START COUNTING DOWN RITE NOW, TIL MONDAY. I KNOW SHE SLAYED WITH THE DANCING, IF FRANK GATSON HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. YESSSSSS ITS TIME TO SLAY KELLS. FOR THE HATERS; U CAN HATE IF U WANT TO BUT U ARE JUST WASTING YOUR MISERABLE TIME!

  20. spring March 30, 2011

    now we need an album cover FAST!

  21. The Life Size Bobble Head Formally Known As Rhitard The Goat March 30, 2011

    @SAM
    I hope wen u said she was coming u were talkin about her arrival 2 da U.K! Nobdy in the U.S is checkin 4 QUEENBEY backup singer!!!!! #hatersKISSmyASS

  22. lola March 30, 2011

    KD, she’s actually releasing Dance singles worldwide as well do you don’t have to worry about her only released urban singles.

    OMG y’all, I’ve been a Kelly Rowland fan forever and gave up on her a few months ago, but I can’t believe that she’s finally going to bring it! Can you believe “Motivation” is already number 55 on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts without being commercially released? This single is going to be a hit and it’s definitely going to chart above the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song is okay, but I thought it was a bad first single choice, but she proved me wrong. I can’t believe that people are going crazy over this song. You know with her status, being a member from the pop group DC, she’s going to get mainstream radio to bump this. Wiz Khalifa went #1 with “Black and Yellow” on the Billboard Hot 100, and Jeremiah’s wack single “Down on Me” is playing on pop radio stations and is in the Top 20, so they’ll definitely be willing to play “Motivation.” I hope she gets major success and gives Bey and Rihanna a run for their money.

  23. lola March 30, 2011

    *** KD, she’s actually releasing Dance singles worldwide as well so you don’t have to worry about her only releasing urban singles.

  24. muni March 30, 2011

    Haters stay mad the queen of RnB and Dance is about toi SLAY
    This video will be so SHEXY..
    Love you Ms KELLY

  25. Roab March 30, 2011

    Kelly is on her grind like this is her first album. I love the effort that she is putting into pleasing all her fans. She’s a tough artist to fit in a box because in Europe and world wide she is the Queen of Neo-Disco! In USA she is a R&B superstar. Her vocals are stellar and sound amazing these days. I have put a few coins to the side to support her latest project. BTW I’m Da Chick is going to be the jam of the Summer!

  26. Deejay March 30, 2011

    Rihanna admits in Rolling stone magazine to being a masochist
    “i enjoy pain. i like being whipped and dominated.I like someone using hands to hurt me”
    I know thats off point because this a Kelly Rowland piece but i had to pos this because i couldnt believe what i was reading
    so where does this leave domestic abuse victims when a person who spoke out and was a supposed role model against violence admits she likes it?
    This is very disturbing and i worry what effect it will have on young women experiencing domestic violence

  27. DGRATEN8 March 30, 2011

    LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN…I THINK THE VIDEO IS GONNA BE SUPER S***. SHE’S GONNA KILL DA SONG WHEN SHE SINGS IT LIVE AND GONNA BE S*** CUZ HER BODY IS DA BUSINESS…IM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT

  28. Shanice March 30, 2011

    I don’t think this is a good release date. Bey and Jay’s 3rfd year wedding anniversary. Ya’ll know all the media gonna be trying to find them and urban radio djs gonna make jokes bout who got who what. Good luck to Kelly anyways

  29. Lebo(CaribbeanBoi) March 30, 2011

    Go Go Go !!! Can’t wait ….

  30. GangsterA March 30, 2011

    Is She For Real???? This Song Is Boring And Uninspiring

  31. Prince&Queen March 30, 2011

    Motivation is Defitnely 1 of her BEST songs. I still have Motivation on heavy rotation. Kellys weakness is her videos. Once her videos start being consistently great she definitely will be competition.I cant wait to see this Motivation video. I think Urban Pop is Definitely the type of music she should be doing.

    @JJFAN1814 hon it’s so obvious that people care. People want to hear Real Singers now, not whisperers like Janet. Deal with it. Hurry up with that album Kelly.

  32. DANCE DIVA March 30, 2011

    @ Life size rihanna the goat bobble head Clearly im in the US and alot of other fans are checking for THE DANCE DIVA in the US, so u can sit your s***** ass down! **U HAVE BEEN DISMISSED**

  33. The Life Size Bobble Head Formally Known as R****** The Goat March 30, 2011

    @DANCEDIVA

    Goodbye

  34. delroy March 30, 2011

    I heard the Diplo remix to this before i heard this version and as i hate to say it the remix is better than the original

  35. Jamie March 30, 2011

    @Gangstera

    How could you say the song is boring and uninspiring when it’s called MOTIVATION? You must thrust your pillow at night. Lonely b**ch!!!

  36. Tori March 30, 2011

    This is great!! I’m definitely watching 106 that day. Now if they would just release Commander in the U.S. and redo the video she could slay. I think she should call the album “The Commander”

  37. GangsterA March 30, 2011

    @Jaime Shush Please Commander,RCG,FAAD,WLTO,On & On,What A Feeling,Grown Woman,Each Other,Forever Is Just A Minute Away >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> This And You Will Deal

  38. Bdaboss March 30, 2011

    This song is the ish!

  39. guttaboy March 30, 2011

    How itiotic to keep hearing about how slow the track is

    1. There is a dance version

    2. The song is about s** (listen to the damn lyrics!)

  40. nowheregirl March 30, 2011

    HOTT- Bring it Kelly. I LOVE the track

  41. carl March 30, 2011

    LOVE the song!

  42. DION-ISH March 30, 2011

    Luam? Thats Rihanna’s old Choreographer …Dope.

    But anyway, Who really cares for Kelly Nowadays? Esp Since Sooo many female artist are releasing there new material this year (or already have). This is to much like Deja Vu with Miss Kelly…releasing a new song or video and then NOT releasing the album or being pushed back yet again, Sooo OVER her. When Love Takes Over was my SONG! But the hype has LONG gone!

  43. QUEEN RIHSUS March 30, 2011

    FLOP H**

  44. Chile Please!! March 30, 2011

    I’M SO OVER THIS B****! I THINK WE’VE ALL BEEN CHECKING FOR HER VERY MUCH LAST YEAR AROUND THIS SAME TIME FOR HER TO DROP AN ALBUM & SHE CAME UP WITH NOTING BUT DEADAIR! GIRL!!! BYE!

  45. Licious March 30, 2011

    KELLY!!! <3!!! I can't wait!! And to all the haters, in the words of Ms. Kelly:
    "Yeah I be the one that they love to mention. I tell them keep on talking cause I love your attention! And if they wanna see me, I tell them they can go high, high, high cause this chick is all fly!"
    Bam!!

  46. jrizza March 30, 2011

    She is going to slay. I just hope the video does, because some people will not give her a chance if the video isn’t good. Also, I hope she has dance tracks on this album too, and keeps some of the songs she made videos for, because it is just random to have them out..

  47. Robier March 30, 2011

    Great. The most requested song at many stations.

  48. The Life Size Bobble Head Formally Known as R****** The Goat March 30, 2011

    I live in Houston but I have not heard Motivation on the radio yet . I listen to Jeniffer new
    single on the internet just like I did for motivation. I guess we are kind slow down here
    in Texas, because I just Jennifer’s singles yesterday on the radio in the car with
    my husband. I am glad she is going to be on 106-n park and I will be watching
    the show. I just hope she tell the audience when her album is coming out like
    Chris Brown did.
