"Motivation" is a song performed by American recording artist Kelly Rowland, taken from her upcoming third studio album (2011). It was written by Rico Love & Lil Wayne and co-written/produced by Jim Jonsin. The R&B slow-jam also features a guest vocal performance from American rapper Lil Wayne and serves as the the lead single from the upcoming, as-of-yet untitled album. Critics gave the song mixed reviews, initially calling the song sexy and praising Lil Wayne's appearance but also stating that the song was not memorable.
An official remix for "Motivation" was produced by Diplo, and adds elements of electronic music, while stretching Rowland's vocals over a dubstep-like instrumental. Despite not having an official radio add date or being released till April 12, 2011, the single has already impacted on U.S. charts, so far peaking on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart at number fifty-five. An accompanying music video was directed at by Sarah Chatfield, the woman behind Rowland's previous video "Forever and a Day" (2010).
