New Video: Kelly Rowland – ‘Motivation (Ft. Lil Wayne)’

Published: Monday 4th Apr 2011 by Trent

With the iTunes release date (April 12th) of the track drawing nearer, Kelly Rowland has finally premiered the video for ‘Motivation (Ft. Lil Wayne)’. The production was overseen by noted director Sarah Chatfield and choreographed Frank Gatson and Luam.

Check out Rowland’s new video below:

This is a sensual video that certainly matched the theme of the song. However, like ‘Commander’, there was something lacking from the clip.

While the backup dancers’ choreography was on point, a solo dance break or simply more activity from Rowland would have gone a long way in making the entire visual more interesting. In fact, for someone who effortlessly delivered in videos like Destiny’s Child’s ‘Lose My Breath’, it seemed as though Rowland was holding back once again.

Either way, this video will have to suffice as Rowland can’t afford another false start given the dire need for her upcoming album to be a hit. With an album from Beyonce looming on the horizon, Rowland has no more room for 2nd chances.

Hopefully, where this clip fell short with the dancing, she will compensate for it in her live performances. Tina Knowles and I will be watching.

  8. BLACK April 4, 2011

    TRENT, lol YEss @ that pic

  9. Kahari April 4, 2011

    Besides the weak ass blue and black complex, and slow motion movements to make Kelly appear more dynamic, the video is a solid 5. Another effort for a D-Lister to try to s** up her fading image in order to stay relevant. My Queen Illuminati Creole Beyjesus would be proud of her, I guess…but this video will fade to black. There’s nothing special about it at all. Sorry, Kelly. Hope the next single will be more friendly and less skanky. NEXT!

  10. MUSICISME April 4, 2011

    Boring ass video boring ass song…

    Lets leave all this to Keri Hilson… She does it much better!

  23. dabest April 4, 2011

    another basic b**** being stanned for by TGJ

    Faily looks like a raggedy wet dog in this video.

  24. antonio April 4, 2011

    I think this song will do well in Urban markets because it hasn’t been released to radio yet, but I hate when artists release the video to a single before the single was released, it takes some of the hype away from the single, but I hope the album does go Platinum because Beyonce shouldn’t be the only member of Destiny’s Child having success because Kelly, Michelle and LeToya are all extremely talented as well

  25. JEREL April 4, 2011

    I Love This Video AAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTT But At 2:52 You Can See Her Nipple They Need To Fix That Other Than That I Love The Song And Video

  26. Kyle April 4, 2011

    I actually really like this video She looks really s*** and I actually really like the choreography. The song is finally growing on me too. Things have not been going well with Kelly on the music front in quite some time so here’s to hoping things brighten up for her. I thought David Guetta kinda saved her and helped her find her niche but apparently that didn’t really work for her either. I will always support her though.

  27. motivationkelly April 4, 2011

    * nipple

  28. Karla April 4, 2011

    SO BUT THERE’S TO MANY BITTER PEOPLE.. THAT DONT KNOW WHEN TO APPLAUD IT’S ACTUALLY QUITE SAD BUT THAT WONT STOP KELLY THEIR ARE PLANTY WHO LOVED THE SONG BEFORE THE VIDEO AND WILL LOVE IT EVEN MORE WHEN THEY SEE THE VIDEO THE SONG IS NUMBER 34 ON HIPHOP AND R&b CHARTS AND THE VIDEO JUST PREMIERED SO YOU SEE IN THE END YOUR BITTERNESS MEANS NOTHING!

  29. David April 4, 2011

    The Best…….GO kelly.

  30. trey April 4, 2011

    lmao dat gift

  31. danny b April 4, 2011

    Well now.

    Definately one of Kelendria’s better videos I must say. Highlight of the video was most def the dancing. the dancing was so sensual and on point. However, i do agree that there was something missing from this clip that i just cant put my finger on. But i think i saw “Kelly Rowland the solo artist” in this video rather than “Kelly Rowland former member of Destiny’s Child”.. which is refreshing.

    Also, i think she wouldve looked so much more bomb if she kept her last short hair cut look . That haircut was just sooooooooooo…… KELLY….& FIERCE ! Nonetheless, Im stoked for the new album.

    *sidenote: This video totally reminded me of Mya’s “Lock U Down” video (which also features Lil Wayne) in a way… dont know if thats a good or bad thing *shrugs*

  32. lerena April 4, 2011

    Kelly, girl you better listen to your own lyrics girl, and “don’t stop there”, get your Kells…..This is your lane right here u can sew it up , if you go back to DC roots….Go Kelly

  33. B4REAL02 April 4, 2011

    Damn that was HOTTT!!!!

  34. ryan April 4, 2011

    Dis trent dude is retarded, pls sack him already……how u gon comment an say da backup dancers choreography is on point den nxt say da dancing in dis vid falls short….wat a fool…..neway gwan miss kelly!

  35. BLACK April 4, 2011

    @kyle

    Why your fave first week sales s goiing to have a 20% decrease from her last album, but your talking about flop… GAGA is killing britney so SIT

  36. DanityKiWi April 4, 2011

    @ Kyle
    Ummm…it hasn’t even been released as a single, but still managed to get enough promotion and airplay to debut at the #52 spot.
    SMH!!! Know your facts before you start dropping hate.

  37. MJSTAN April 4, 2011

    THIS WAS A GOOD VIDEO

  38. Jamie April 4, 2011

    Trent, you are one flip-flop dude iI swear. You just wish you were Kelly surrounded by all of those men. The video slayed. For most part you had to use your imagination. The chair scene was symbolism–Like the guy was dancing to simulate sexual interaction to help her reach a climax, but Trent you wouldn’t be familiar with activity like that due to your non-involvement with the opposite s**.

  39. BEYONCEALLDAY April 4, 2011

    shut the hell up im not a big kelly fan but it was off the chain. The video fits the song to a TEE it wasnt lacking anything. Kelly girl you did you thing and it was so s*** ( I LIKE YOUR BREAST BEING OUT CUTE ). Just keep up the good work and cant wait to hear your next single. And what do BEE have to do with kelly Nothing.

  40. KAKA April 4, 2011

    LMFAO if BEYONCE AGES LIKE TINAS FACE IN THAT PIC UGH….. bEYOND HORRRIBLE

  41. GLYNNTALE April 4, 2011

  42. Immabeyourmotivation April 4, 2011

    I can’t watch it !!! Does anyone have another link ? All the videos I’ve found are from the same source I guess,there’s just a black square instead of the video and it’s not changing !!!

  43. Blanco Family April 4, 2011

    she KILLED IT but i cant help but think if this was ciara’s song she wudda killed it. hate on ciara all u want but DANCING is what makes the song… ciara gives u that s*** vocals and then she kills it with the moves..
    ANYWAYS kelly rowland 10/10 trent always finds fault with everyone.. i love this. so SENSUAL and S*** but different.. wayne wasnt needed.

  44. royalkev April 4, 2011

    I have to agree with Trent. There was something lacking, however it was far from terrible. Kelly looks the part, she’s s***. That wasn’t the problem here. She just doesn’t standout the way you expect her to. I think she can do it, but she appears to play it too safe. She rely’s on her singing only to get the attention of her audience. That’s what she does boldly. She doesn’t over sing, but she usually sings hard in the studio. What she must do is match her aggression in her songs with a strong performance. I see some effort, but the bold Kelly is hiding. I wish someone would tell her that.

    Shut yo big ass up. You have no room to even comment. Put yo fat ass in that video in Kelly’s place, and trust the video wouldn’t have been the same…EEEWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Alex Grey April 4, 2011

  54. Joan April 4, 2011

    Good Evening:
    now you know that Kelly did her thing on the video Motivation. What else do you want from this child. come on now. Don’t put her in no one spot. Kelly Rowland is in her own. That something that I think some of you need to do. The native here is so bad. Why so much. Let start giving postivitive in here. Is that so wrong. Come on now it 2011!

  55. trucie April 4, 2011

    the song kind of growin on me but the vid is definitely lacking. This isn’t going to help her much.

  56. Diane April 4, 2011

    The first time I didn’t think of Beyonce while watching Kelly. Good job!

  57. I’madiva April 4, 2011

    The video was nice!!! This is what I was expecting to see! This is by far 1 of her best videos! To be honest the video was quite entertaining and It kept me guessing and wanting to see more. She looked phenomenal! This video will definitely be on 106 countdown & Urban radio stations. Now lets start promoting the album Kelly! I’m very excited to see her perform this single live! & plllllzzzzz….. Kelly! Promise me that u will not mess up your performances vocally! U cannot afford to do that! 1 thing I do agree with Trent is that Beyonce and her team will definitely be watching very closely…. Where I differ with Trent is the video is not the most important thing but the song is… younger adults don’t look at all that! As long as the song is right and the video is decent. She has to be able to deliver the song live!!! That’s where she needs to focus on…. & also Kelly girl what the heck did u have on on 106 & Park? Please change the hair & s** up your look more… just my opinion…

  58. Tales Pereira April 4, 2011

    Thats no is enough kelly (once more again)

  59. nellyv85 April 4, 2011

    the songs sounds empty to me…. I also feel like it was not properly mixed. idk I love Kelly but I need more.

  60. Princess April 4, 2011

    Yes Kelly! The video is very s*** and the song. I love it. GO KELLY!!

  61. Seye April 4, 2011

    Hmmmn, after watching…I’d say Kelly lifted the entire mood for that video from this editorial, no? >>> http://bit.ly/gfo3OG

    Not slating, just stating…

  62. Karla April 4, 2011

    FUNNY THING IS SOME PEOPLE SAID IS WAS LACKING YET A FEW FAT B****** ON TWITTER SAID IT WAS OVER THE TOP.. EITHER WAY THE VIDEO WAS FAR FROM BEING BAD AS YOU CAN GET WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO CALL IT THE VIDEO WAS GREAT WHEN IT’S ALL SAID AND DONE ANYONE SAYING DIFFERENT IS DENSE

    @I’MADIVA

    I fee you. This was hot.

    Trentisha what is you on? Honestly. She had plenty of things for you to look at while I watch her and you still complainin?

  64. Truth Always April 5, 2011

    Amen and Amen!!!!!!!!
    Now Annihilate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  65. Dave April 5, 2011

    I’m not tryna to cover ass for her, but I think the video served it’s purpose. I do agree that there needed to be more dancing, & more of a dance break (towards the end). But, she is the motivation for the dude’s kind of like Wayne was rapping. The video & Kelly are teases. The dudes are supposed to be doing all the work, & Kelly is like the “Commander” & she’s the motivation for them to put in work. Plus the song is sensual, didn’t really need to be that much dancing. & the parts she did dance in she did own. This will def be a urban hit.

  66. Dave April 5, 2011

    @I’MADIVA
    April 4, 2011 at 11:43 pm
    Have you heard Kelly live lately? She def will not mess this up vocally in no performances unless she’s sick.

  67. missK April 5, 2011

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  68. BOO April 5, 2011

    Nice-
    Haters are idiots.

  69. Joosybooty April 5, 2011

    Who wrote this garbage.
    The video is NICE and aint lacking
    Another Bey stan I see

    GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE
    this is better than most s*** out

  70. S*** April 5, 2011

    This video is AMAZING!

    This is how you do it!, & she looked FLAWLESS just like the Queen… 🙂

    VERY NICE!!, Glad shes FINALLY stepped her game up, Looks like DANCE POP wasnt really her niche after all 😐

  71. S*** April 5, 2011

    Now all kelly needs is a Hot UP TEMPO to really do it big. Im sure this will do WELL but it wont do that well, atleast not for long cause this song sounds like It might one of those really hot songs that after a while it gets over played & you like it less… 😐

  72. Robier April 5, 2011

    S*** vid

  73. jjenn April 5, 2011

    this song,this video is the shiiitttt ….omg…..hothothothot sexyyyyyyy ,steamyyyyyyy…haters fall back,cse kelly is doing her thing….

  74. Mike April 5, 2011

    While the song is growing on me, I still think motivation is boring and so is the video. I mean i will give credit were credit is due, in which kelly delivered a on point sensual tone. However the video was just so boring like the song to the point where i just could not watch it longer than a minute.

  75. LOW April 5, 2011

    She wasn’t particularly engaging to me. Why does she have that coat on over that one piece?

    If it wasn’t for the nice bodies on the dudes I might have turned it off. lol

    The dancing was on point though.

  76. tammi April 5, 2011

    Luuuvvss it!

  77. SOBE April 5, 2011

    I NEED MORE OF HER IN THE VIDEO…DID SHE REALLY APPROVE THIS?? I LOVE ME SOME KELLY BUT SHE NEEDS ME TO BE ON HER TEAM!!!! THE SONG IS HOT, BUT I HEARD ANOTHER VERSION WHERE IT’S THE BEAT IS JUST A BIT MORE FASTER AND IT SOUND SO MUCH BETTER….I WISH HER THE BEST THOUGH, HOPEFULLY SHE CAN PULL OUT ANOTHER HOT SINGLE…

  78. Jayla April 5, 2011

    The Single DOESNT RELEASE UNTIL APRIL 12TH LADIES….

    AND I’M JUST SAYING, A VIDEO IS A VIDEO, DO YOU PEOLE HAVE NO LIFE, A VIDEO WON’T SWAY ME TO BUY AN ALBUM, EITHER I LIKE THE SONG OR I DON’T…. AND I LOVE IT

  79. ICON April 5, 2011

    Amazing video. It fitted the overall slow sexual mood of the song. Also how it was sweaty and grimey which made all the more s*** and interesting. She was on the point in the dancing. This song deserves to be a hit. This is my jam at the moment.
    #TEAM KELLY

    @S***

    What happened to you? You are not being loony today.

  80. Parris Black April 5, 2011

    Trent. Stay the f*** away from KR posts please. Makes me not like u. This is hands down the BEST video that she has ever done. EVER! Someone said above “I think I saw Kelly Rowland the solo artist.” That is what the world just saw. Kelly Rowland is just that. Kelly Rowland. Or Ms.Kelly if u’d prefer. Learn who SHE is n what SHE is about. This is her. Never too much. Just enough or what she wanted to give u. #TeamKelly let’s Go, Go, Go, GO!

  81. uknowumad April 5, 2011

    @ KYLE you are the last person that needs to comment with Ms. B.S stiff wack ass video that you had the nerve to call *cough* epic. Kelly s*** all over B.S. when it comes to real talent that can actually sing and dance

  82. uknowumad April 5, 2011

    The song and video is hot, hope it works for Kelly would be nice to see real talent back on the charts instead all this other crap

  83. uknowumad April 5, 2011

    @Kyle my bad that wasn’t meant for you

  88. CRE8TIVE_i April 5, 2011

    HAWT DAMNNNNN IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY…DOPE VID!!!

  89. KaVion April 5, 2011

    I don’t even think @Kyle actually watched the video -_-

  90. Taylor April 5, 2011

    **News Flash – Randy Jackson, judge extraordinaire from American Idol, recently stated that “UNITY” is one of Kelly Rowland’s best songs ever. She has a potential Top 10 worldwide hit in her catalog and has done nothing to embrace this amazing ballad. “Unity” is the answer … “a shooting star, a ray of light” <3 <3

  91. Prince&Queen April 5, 2011

    Yeeeeesssssssss Kelly I LOVED every bit of this video!!!!!!!!This video is SEXYNESS!!!!The concept of the video fit the song so well. WOW Kelly, all u need to do is stay consistent with ur videos and u will definitely be a Force to be Reckoned With. This is DEFINITELY a HIT!!!

  92. Tori April 5, 2011

    I don’t think she pushed the album back cuz of Beyonce. I think she pushed it back cuz she is prolly gonna release an up tempo pop record during summer. I think right now she is just trying to tackle the urban market to start off and then to mainstream during the summer. She a smart woman, so she knows what she is doing. I’m just worried about the album budget cuz it seems like she has already used a good amount of it releasing 4 singles and 3 videos previous to Motivation. She should have waited and not rushed all those singles out last year. I still think they should release Commander in the U.S. this summer. Commander is my favorite song from her.

  93. Aisha April 5, 2011

    I agree with @ TAYLOR 110% … Kelly Rowland needs to listen to her loyal fans re: UNITY ! This song is pure magic and makes people cry ~ it’s so beautiful. A song about losing a loved one or a best friend. Really hoping she performs this gem live in the coming year. On a side note, if Randy Jackson thinks it’s a hit then what is she waiting for ???

  94. Cristina April 5, 2011

    Spain wants “UNITY” by Kelly Rowland ! Like “Motivation” but “UNITY” is pure GOLD ! Will go #1 if Motown Universal does the right thing !!!

  95. Tori April 5, 2011

    UNITY would be a beautiful song for the summer !

  96. Angela Wesley April 5, 2011

    That video is s*** and sensual any a normal way not to raunchy. The dancing was good
    and Kelly kept in line with the dancers. Someone didn’t t like the jacket that Kelly was
    wearing with that purple swimsuit but she had to wear something to hide her backside
    so the video could shown on T.V.
    .

  97. Quentin April 5, 2011

    man this video is hot and s*** so haters stop hatin i mean damn kelly is just as good as any other artist and the song is so hot the lyrics r on point the beat is crazy and the dance steps are off the meter and my boy lil wayne goes harder than a muther so stop the press and stop the hating

  98. Bdaboss April 5, 2011

    I know this song might disappoint the UK fans but this song has been generating a lot of buzz in the united states.

  99. Licious April 5, 2011

    SO SEXXXXXXYYYYYYYY!!!! My girl right here!! And I agree I’m Dat Chick definately needs to be next single!!!

    @Kyle Why do you even bother coming to a mostly urban new site if all you like is pop? And don’t hate on a video when your fave can never even deliver an acceptable one.

  100. justme April 5, 2011

    I simply LOVE the video!

  101. MISHKA April 5, 2011

    Great song, great visuals.

    It’s too bad she’s holding back though. We don’t need her to go crazy like Keri Hilson but she misses that nasty little touch that Janet, Beyoncé or even Rihanna put in their sexiest videos. I’m just as surprised as Trent because she used to have so much sass in videos like “Carter 2 U” or “Soldier”.

    Okay, Lil’Tunechi is becoming a PROBLEM for me. I never understood the hype behind the guy before but since the “f%ck this b%tch%ss ni%%as, I’m Lil’Tunechi” in “Look at me now” he completely turns me on now. *don’t judge me*

    I hope she’ll definitely get into it during a live performance. Come on, Kel, take a deep breath, have a margarita and pop that thang, gurl !!!

  102. Chris April 5, 2011

    Kelly this video is hot. She was s*** as hell. BTW people let unity go please damn!

  103. quanberg April 5, 2011

    Love Love Love Love it !!!! Absolutely amazing Kelly brought it this time 2011 is the year – the dancing the dancers the sexyness everything is on point

  104. Anthony M April 5, 2011

    Love the video, I do wish she would have had her short do though, she looks stunning like that.

  105. Chloe April 5, 2011

    Kelly looks amazing. This time I think she got it right…..

  106. Aisha April 5, 2011

    I’m with @ BDABOSS … unlike Motivation, a song such as Unity is a fan favorite in the UK and most of Europe !!!

  107. RealMusic April 5, 2011

    I liked the video, but I expected a little more

  108. Dave April 5, 2011

    Dead @ wanting old ass songs like Unity as a single, lol

  109. Songbirdie April 5, 2011

    LOVE Kelly, LIKE the video…Frank Gatson could of did better on the choreography….but all in all nice…nd her body is on point!!!!!!!!!!

    Luv It! Go Kellz!

    *motivation tops my playlist at the moment* Luvin it! 😀

  111. raraskils April 5, 2011

    UGH i am so disappointed in Kelly right now!!!
    boring ass video for a boring ass song….why even spend your $ making a video if the song sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  112. Bdaboss April 5, 2011

    I’ve had so many people ask me about this song when I play it. I need to see her on Leno, Kimmel, Lopez, and Letterman promoting this song asap.

  113. muni April 5, 2011

    Whoa LOVER!!
    KELLY RWOALND!!

    KELLY RWOALND is f****** slaying.
    Where are the wigs at?

  116. Dominic April 5, 2011

    Not keen on the video or song. Sorry Kelly!! 🙁

  117. TaTa April 5, 2011

    The song is okay as it grows on you, but the video…..
    The concept is good but the direction is all over the place, it was cut in all the wrong places that left it with no flow or consistency . I think the video could’ve been better

  118. Mike April 5, 2011

    PERFECT

  119. Deriko April 5, 2011

    KELLY YOU CAN DO IT I BELIEVE IN YOU BABAY!

  120. Hell No April 5, 2011

    The video fits the song perfectly. CANNOT WAIT for the album.

  121. meme April 5, 2011

    i’m sorry but this is so not what you expect from an already successful woman. 1st off all whats up with the dance routine?! Secondly what the hell is she tryina tell us with the video..its not s***, its not even close to being hot, what is it?? another thing i find very odd is the fact that she’s done her nose, her b****** and still cant serve. one thing i do like is the song kinda..oh and waynes part was ok too. im not hatin. i wish for kells to get the success she desires..

  122. Be Nice April 5, 2011

  123. Heaven April 5, 2011

  124. That FLOP Juice April 5, 2011

    It is sooo first half of 2000’s.

    It’s going to be a flop. I expect 30-50k first week ALBUM sales. No more.

  125. TheRealBabyDre April 5, 2011

    @thatflopjuice

    GO TO HELL! u fit right in

  128. truthis April 5, 2011

    Kelly Kelly Kelly…ummm this video was just alright…Sadly this still wont sell her album..Why do people think putting a Hott rapper on a song spells Hit…Not!!! Hopefully though this will be the push that she needs to FINALLY put out that album…after a million and one Singles!!

  129. Twista April 5, 2011

    The song has a cool vibe but the video is same ol same ol – greased up skin, gyrating, and nekkid peeps. Yawn.

  130. joyce cunningham April 5, 2011

    congrat, kelly, you’re going to do great…..this is kelly year to shine…..Instead of hating on her, why support her and buy her cd when it come out this summer…..Bey, isn’t the only out there…trust me…..she isnt’….

  131. VFB April 5, 2011

    WHO CARES THAT BEYONCE CD WILL BE DROPPING IN JUNE. KELLY JUST CONTINUE TO DO YOU AND MAKE CD’S!!! GOD GAVE YOU A VOICE FOR A REASON NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE MIGHT SAY!!! THE VIDEO IS HOTTTT

  132. Mira April 5, 2011

    I absolutely love the song AND video.
    Go Kelly!

  133. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare April 5, 2011

    I smiled the ENITRE time while watching this video! Very sensual. Loved it!

    & what does Beyonce’s impending album have to do with Kelly exactly? I’m a HUGE Beyonce fan and I’ve never felt that I needed to choose between her or Kelly.

  134. Tamsin April 5, 2011

    UNITY … best song ever by Kelly Rowland <3 <3 !!!

  135. AB April 5, 2011

    Really nice song and the video is good 🙂
    I, however, have an issue with the people writing the articles for ‘That Grape Juice’! There is an unbelievable amount of biased articles it’s unreal. Kelly’s choreography and dancing was basic, and they commended her, fair do’s they didn’t say it was great, but you get what i’m saying, Britney, on the other hand danced a lot more vigourously and the choreography was far superior but they referred to her as a ‘pensioner’. Sort it out.

  136. i’m a billy goat (they call me deep throat, yes) April 5, 2011

    I LOVE THIS SONG! I am not a big K. Rowland fan but she did the “dog on thing” on this track! I am happy for her. The video was interesting and matched the mood and tone of the song to IMO!

    *Tina Knowles looks scary in that GIF!!!

    Okay, Lil’Tunechi is becoming a PROBLEM for me. I never understood the hype behind the guy before but since the “f%ck this b%tch%ss ni%%as, I’m Lil’Tunechi” in “Look at me now” he completely turns me on now. *don’t judge me*

    If he wasn’t the size of a pocket protector I might agree with you! I love him in this song though!!

  138. LYRIC THE COMMANDER LEE April 5, 2011

  139. M April 5, 2011

    I’m sorry…I was a fan of Kelly when she didn’t have to take her clothes off and have bisexual orgies to sell a record! This is complete filth and the fact that BET ran it says something about their agenda too…Why do we debase ourselves to such lower level living? Art in its truer form should seek to uplift and promote higher ideals than the ever increasing promotion of bisexuality and the LGBT agenda! It is so true, if you don’t stand for something, you will FALL for anything!!! I read these comments and realize the numbers of the Fallen are ever increasing….WAKE UP

  140. blackcanary April 5, 2011

    lol, this flop is still releasing an album after 5 singles!? kelly just stop …

  141. anonymous April 5, 2011

  143. E11 April 5, 2011

    i like the video and the song has grown on me. i do like the song. however, regardless, this song will flop (like her other failed attempts, sadly). This is not a strong enuff single and will go nowhere on the charts. #juststatingfacts

  144. They April 5, 2011

    I f****** love it..!

  145. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare April 5, 2011

    @LYRIC THE COMMANDER LEE, thank you for the link! Just watched it- wow! Loving it even more!

  146. nickalus Randle April 6, 2011

    I am a die hard Kelly fan, BUT she just kills me! IDK wat to say, it is cute, BUT it is just NOT GOOD ENUFF, she has more to her than this man, she can be GREAT, its like she gives u just little bit each time, there is NO MORE CHANCES KELLY, u have to come hard or go home boo boo…IT IS JUST OK!!

  147. dakkylove April 6, 2011

    go watch the explicit version on vevo….Kelly brought the heat, this version was watered down for TV. her video was sitting at no 3 on itunes last night .if motivation was supposed to start a buzz well job well done #Teamkelly

  148. Mira April 6, 2011

    @ DAKKYLOVE
    I just watched the explicit version. Love it!

  149. Be BETTER not “BItter!” April 8, 2011

    ***TEAM KELLY UPDATE!***

    Her Video is now at #1 on itunes video and the video is the #2 Most Watched Video on Youtube sitting pretty with over 1 Million Views!

    Haters Stay Mad!

    “She told yall she was gonna bump like this, yall didn’t think that she could bump like this!”

  150. Matthew Charlery-Smith April 8, 2011

    I’ve always stood up for Kelly as she had class and a real voice. This is a big disappointment. Why has she become SO sleazy? I’m sure soon we’ll hear the norm that God is in her life and she’s so grateful for how He’s blessed her with her career and her “incredible” team. I don’t think I’ll be buying the album at this rate. The whole video is just wack and nasty. There is nothing to learn professionally, vocally, lyrically, musically or in any other aspect for this song…and I thought she had enough backbone to avoid acting slutty to sell records!

  151. Sam April 8, 2011

    The video is amazing it can’t be that bad to be #1 on iTunes video chart Kelly shake them haters off …

  152. asheleigh April 25, 2011

    This Video Was Hot All You Haterz Need To Get Off Her Jock And Do Something With Ya’ll Life

  153. tyrisha May 10, 2011

    i hate this jounk

  154. lil laya May 16, 2011

    a lil sexual but who dont like to see somethin a lil showy.lol

  155. sweet May 27, 2011

    shut up haters!

  156. Terrance Shelton May 28, 2011

    The concept for the video leaves more to be desired , however, I give credit to the Colorist and Post Production Team for giving the video its overall look and professional finish. Kelly’s lack of true vocal ability as a LEAD singer or solo artist truly comes through in it this effort, and had it not been for the featured appearance of Lil Wayne, Im not certain it would have gotten any traction at all. Thank God, she has a great Marketing machine to give her the exposure that this track desperately needed to convince less savvy music buyers that she’s still relevant.

  157. Malissa June 30, 2011

    Whos that Backk up dancer that Kelly rubs all over. He is too fine.

  158. Soldout September 9, 2011

    Selling s** all over again. Thats what this video is about. What a shame
