Kelly Rowland – Here I Am [Album Review]

Leave a comment

There has been so many mishap’s with Kelly’s music career. I Really think that people thought she was going to give up, but she hasn’t and I personally believe that this album is the album of a Fighter. This album was meant to be released last year, but after so many failed Single choices such as “Rose Coloured Glasses” and also “Grown Ass Woman” not only that, but deciding to not have Matthew Knowles as her manager no more. Kelly decided to re-do the whole album and give it a different feel. That’s when we received “Motivation”!

“Motivation” is Kelly’s first #1 R&B single as a Solo artist, the single has had a HUGE Success within America, and here she is with her 3rd Studio album “Here I Am”. Many people have said that they feel like this is the album that they’ve been waiting on from Kelly since she left Destiny’s Child. Kelly enter’s the album with a track called “I’m Dat Chick” which is an up-tempo Club banger song with a thumping beat! This song will defiantly have the chick’s catching a huge Ego Boost when this track comes on in the club. She then runs into a Mid-Tempo track called “Work it Man” which talks about past relationships and how much baggage she has but the man who she’s got now is willing to carry the baggage and work it out. Quite a good track however with an unknown rapper that I haven’t heard before but his verse is quite good!

A Track that she defiantly needs to release as her 3rd single choice is “Feelin’ Me Right Now” this song really reminded me of Fantasia’s “Falling In Love Tonight”. The beat to this song is crazy, it’s a mid-tempo for the club that you can defiantly whine up your waist too! Apart from it being a sexy track, it still gives that Independent encouragement for the ladies.

Another track that she defiantly must have on her Single choices is defiantly is “Turn It Up”. The title is not what you think! Kelly is talking about telling her ex’s Present girlfriend about all his little secrets. She even drops this Line “What goes around, comes around buy another round!” But instead of creating a bitter R&B track Kelly makes another hit for the radio! This will defiantly blow up the radio stations! It defiantly is a UK Friendly track as well! I Smell success with this song! It’s a must listen to track from the album.

Kelly keeps her R&B roots on this album, she does keep it sexy but keeps it classy as well. She doesn’t have heartbreaking songs on it as she did with Ms. Kelly, But this album is a nice album to listen to! I think Kelly really did well with this album. I really think it’s a good effort. I’m not sure about Grammy worthy, but Motivation is defiantly Grammy worthy! The album is short but sweet. I enjoyed listening to this album! I personally believe that Kelly deserves a round of applause!

The song that is forever in people’s Facebook statuses and quoted everywhere! Miguel has dropped the video to “Quickie” check out the video. In MY Eyes, its nothing special!

Miguel told Rap-Up that “I actually have a really special feeling about these videos” “I was very hands-on in the execution and the creative elements—from casting to the treatment to choosing the director and cinematography, the entire theme of the two videos—it’s kind of my brainchild.”

Do you guys remember when I posted the MP3 to Tyga’s “Far Away” when it leaked? Well Tyga has done to video to it, and I can honestly say that I Love this video. The concept of the video is what I imagined and its a REAL Good effort from Tyga! His previous video “Reminded” had a good concept as well, if Tyga keeps this up he will become very Famous!

I Actually love this song and the video. I think his releasing it in the UK as well, I hope it does well over here. Can’t wait to hear his album.

Joey Essex – Reem [New Music]

Do you remember when I informed you all that Joey from The Only way Is Essex is releasing a track called “Reem”? Well the track has been released! Brace yourselves! It’s not as bad as Cher Lloyd but its on the same level!

WTF is this Sh*t!? Joey ain’t even rapping and its his OWN Song. The song is practically all about the singer, who isn’t Spectacular but it might as well be HER song! I don’t even know why I’m disappointed, I mean it’s from a guy who buys shoes that are 2 sizes DOWN from his actual shoe size. I mean this is SUCH an EPIC FAIL! Is this what the Music Industry is coming to? SERIOUSLY!?

Beyoncé – Best Thing I Never Had [Music Video]

The video for Beyoncé’s new single “Best Thing I Never Had” has finally been released. The single went number 1 in the UK iTunes charts last week. Check out what King B cooked up with her new video!

I really wanted more footage from the prom video, and I was expecting Beyoncé to be more boastful to the guy and tell him that he is the best thing she never had. I really was expecting an Irreplaceable Part 2, a little mini movie! I sort of knew she was going to go with the wedding theme, It’s a good idea! It’s a cute video regardless.

Monica – Anything (To Find You) [Feat. Rick Ross & Lil’ Kim] [New Music]

Monica’s new single has just surfaced on RapUp. This track is lifted off her new album “New Life”. The track features Rick Ross and the infamous Lil’ Kim! Check out the track below!

Well… I think the song will grow on me! However Lil’ Kim’s verse is quite dope! I’m glad she didn’t take a blast at Nicki Minaj because LORD knows that’s what everybody was thinking when they heard that Lil’ Kim was going to be on the track. But I think the song is a Grower.
