Wherever Kelly Rowland’s Motivation has been coming from lately, it had the singer looking better than ever! The singer amped up her sexy and released a series of ultra sultry pictures just in time for the release of her sophomore album Here I Am, which hits stores tomorrow (June 26).
In the shoot, photographer Derek Blanks captured Kelly showing off her impeccably toned body in pictures that featured her topless in jeans and/or wearing her birthday suit.
The body rolling first track on her album “Motivation” has had a solid chart performance, although producer Jeff Bhasker bashed it on his Twitter page. “How can this kr song with the weakest beat and melody of all time be the #1 song on urban!? Oh yeah. Wayne. I just listened to "Motivation" again to see if I was to [sic] harsh in my critique. I wasn't. The lyrics are horrid as well."
In response to the criticism, Kelly said, "You know what, the record speaks for itself." She continued, "Opinions are like a--holes, everybody's got one. He's made wonderful music with my sister [Beyoncé] and other artists. There's no reason for me to say anything negative. 'Cause I won't tell you the thought that is really in my head. I'll just kill 'em with kindness." Or kill them with a scorching hot photo shoot!
