On July 22 2011, former Destiny’s Child now gone independent, Kelly Rowland, released her first album titled Here I Am with Universal Motown,since leaving long time label Columbia Records. Here I Am is predominantly R&B and pop music. So far the the album has been having a good audience. In fact, dare I say Kelly Rowland has been a breakout star ever since she parted ways with her former manager Matthew Knowles. We have already heard a few chart topping singles from the album like Commander Ft David Guetta, and the much talked about baby-making tune Motivation featuring rapper Lil Wayne. I must say, just listening to these released singles makes me assume that album is going to be full of tunes!! Here I Am is made up of ten tracks and features artists like Lil Wayne, Rico Love, David Guetta, Big Sean and Lil Playy.
Listen to ‘Motivation’ Ft Lil Wayne on here:

Am loving the singles that have already been dropped from this album. But will I be going out to grab myself a copy? Don’t know yet. But I’ll definitely be keeping my ears on the ground for more singles that will drop before i eventually get one.
How about you? Are you ‘Motivated’ enough to get a copy of this album for your listening pleasures?
