Kelly Rowland’s Star Turn….Finally!

It is likely too early to call, but Kelly Rowland may be finding herself.



We all know I love me some Kelly Rowland so I’m probably biased. But it is nice to see her finally own so completely and confidently the fact that she is the finest woman on the planet.

But more than that, she holds your attention in this video in a way she simply hasn’t before. Kelly for so long was the dime piece who didn’t want you to notice her. Even though she was a prominent member of one of the biggest girl groups of all time. Even though everyone who had eyes could tell that there was something there worth paying attention to.

“Motivation” the song and video feels more like the true progression from her scene-stealing turns in “Lose My Breath” (both song and video) and on the last Destiny’s Child album, where she got all the best parts and freaked the hell out of them. It isn’t a great song, but it’s better than what she’s been releasing so far and, most importantly, it allows her to use the top part of her vocal range well.

And it just feels like the star turn we’ve all been waiting for.

I mean, even the remix is dope!

    I was ready to diss this just on GP – and I heard you make this claim before. But i think you are on to something here – Ms. Kelly appears to be evolving now that Ms.B is clearly on another level.

    LMAO. I’ve been really harsh to Kelly before (, but everything about this works for me. And I think it’ll work for the public as long as they can get past that nagging “only room for one kind of black artist at a time” socialization.
