Kelly Rowland‘s been the target of some negative criticism, as we are at one point or another in life, but this one comes from Jeff Bhasker – one of the producers on her sister Beyoncé’s latest project, 4:

“How can this kr (Kelly Rowland) song with the weakest beat and melody of all time be the #1 song on urban!? Oh yeah. Wayne,” he tweeted. “I just listened to Motivation again to see if I was to harsh in my critique. I wasn’t. The lyrics are horrid as well.”

However, while Kelly Rowland isn’t one to feed into controversy, she responded to the producer’s comments in an interview with BET, and handled fine if you asked me:

“You know what, the record speaks for itself. Opinions are like **sholes, everybody’s got one. He’s made wonderful music with my sister 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.”

While on the subject of her interview with BET – she spilled on the success of “Motivation” and her performance at the BET Awards:


“Number one feels like number one. It feels wonderful. Especially for it to be on the charts so long. I think ‘Motivation’ opened up a different chapter for me. It really did.[...][The album] is along the same lines when it comes to an urban sound. When I listen to everything back to back, when I was sequencing it, that’s when it felt really good in my spirit.”


“I was dreaming about performing on the BET Awards stage. I would dream and pray about it. When you ask God for it , he’ll deliver. Then he wants to throw Trey Songz in it. Trey and I had really great chemistry. We rehearsed. We were prepared and excited.[...]I wasn’t expecting that kiss, trust me. I didn’t even know he did that until after. When you’re on stage and you’re moving…it was really weird.”
