Kelly Rowland “Here I Am” Official Album Review!!!

I came into this review with a great deal of expectation but somehow Kelly managed to completely blow me away from start to finish!

This album is solid, brilliant and was well worth the years of wait, all the time it took for Kelly to arrive at this point for her to truly be here! “Here I Am” is genius!!

HighLighted Tracks:

* I’m That Chick

* Feel’n Me Right Now

* Motivation

* Keep It Between Us

*Turn It Up

These songs all made it to my iPod and given that the album only has 10 tracks, 5 highlights is remarkable! This is an incredibly listenable project! Kelly worked hard and I believe it’s going to really pay off!

“I’m That Chick” is FIRE! It DEFINITELY should have been the 2nd single! Hopefully her label switches gears and scrapes the Big Sean assisted “Lay It On Me” for this song or “Turn It Up”, a daring club banger that had me up out of my seat dancing and shouting “YESSS KELLY, YESSSSSSS”!!! It’s perhaps the strongest song on the album!

I knew months ago when my girl at Def Jam sent me “Motivation” via email that it would be a monster hit for Kelly but I never imagined it would totally transform her career like it has.. She’s gone from a D List, washed up, written off mite in Beyonce’s massive shadow to a formidable opponent on stage and in studio for King B! “Here I Am” easily matches Beyonce’s “4” in the arenas of production, listenability and writing. Of course B’s vocals are way out of Kelly’s league but it’s very clear at this point that vocals aren’t a deciding factor in this game. Beyonce’s material is dead at radio and Kelly’s Lil Wayne assisted “Motivation” just resigned the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B/HipHop Songs chart, after more then a month under the crown! “Motivation” has become her “We Belong Together”, her smash comeback record! This album is a testament to her musicianship and true artistry. I’m veryyyyy proud of her.  Here she is.. COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!
