Kelly Rowland recruits Lil Wayne for the new song 'Motivation,' from her upcoming still-untitled third solo album.
The sexy R&B jam features sparse keyboard notes, programmed beats and subtle, pulsing synths that appear during the chorus. The former Destiny's Child singer promises to be her lover's motivation, singing:
"Oh lover, don't you dare slow down / Go longer, you can last more rounds / Push harder, you're almost there now / So go lover, make mama proud / And when we're done, I don't wanna feel my legs."
Wayne offers kitchen and car metaphors on his verse, rapping, "I put her on my plate, then I do the dishes / She my motivation, I'm her transportation / Cause I let her ride, while I drive her crazy / Then I just keep going going, like I'm racing / When I'm done, she hold me like a conversation."
'Motivation' is produced by Jim Jonsin, whose dozens of R&B credits over the past decade include Usher's 'There Goes My Baby,' Beyonce's 'Sweet Dreams' and Pitbull's 'Hotel Room Service.'
Rowland's next album has been delayed on multiple occasions and is currently planned for release sometime this year.
