A classic eclipses time and trends, enjoying a lifespan that never ends.
Such is the case for Kelly Rowland‘s 2011 smash ‘Motivation’ featuring Lil Wayne.
Because, years on from its release, the scintillating cut is still burning up on VEVO.
More on its major milestone below…
This week the video for the Jim Jonsin and Rico Love production crossed the 100 million views mark.
Directed by Sarah Chatfield, the clip was hailed for being Rowland’s most daring yet. And the risk certainly paid off.
Five years after its debut the ‘Here I Am’ jam remains an R&B landmark and one of the solo Grammy winner’s most revered efforts.
With a new album on the horizon, it’d be awesome to see Ms. Kelly score another ‘Motivation’ sized hit.
The track peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 during a time when Dance was dominating; it was also certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA for pure sales in excess of 2 million.
