Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” Remix War: R. Kelly Vs. The-Dream Vs. Jeremih Vs Diplo

92555c16a20484949148eceb1cd65494 Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” Remix War: R. Kelly Vs. The Dream Vs. Jeremih Vs DiploKelly Rowland’s “Motivation” is the slow-jam of the season for a reason: the original Jim Jonsin-produced track is a boudoir burner that showcases the full spectrum of Kelly’s vocals, from sweet to sultry. That’s why it’s also earned the respect — and remix treatment — of a whole array of hitmakers, including Diplo, Jeremih and The-Dream. Now heavyweight love letter author R. Kelly has stepped into the breach, and his verse takes Kelly’s lyric from the bedroom to the, uh, delivery room. Check out his lyrics — and help us settle the “Motivation” remix wars once and for all — below.

Kellz isn’t known for subtlety in his slow-jams, and here he ratchets up the raunch (on a song that’s fairly NSFW as is) with a verse that recalls some of his most direct tunes: “Baby I’m gon’ be your motivation/ Take you to school, give you a sex education/ Bend it over real quick without hesitation/ I’m gonna get you pregnant, you’ll have the next generation.”

He also leaves no doubt about whose remix he expects to help continue Motivation’s Hot 100 success: “I’m ’bout to get rich / off this here remix / It’s Kellz in this bitch / I’m born for this s**t.”

That may be, but he does have some stiff competition: as Kelly enjoys one of the biggest hits of her post-Destiny’s Child career (amidst B season, no less), we’ve assembled our picks for the most intriguing remixes of the song below. Each offers something a little different: Diplo toys with Kelly’s own vocals and takes the track in a dancier direction; Jeremih’s brings an airy R&B touch that syncs with Kelly neatly. Who re-imagined “Motivation” the best?

Kelly Rowland “Motivation” (R. Kelly remix)

Kelly Rowland “Motivation” (The-Dream remix)

Kelly Rowland “Motivation” (Jeremih remix)

Kelly Rowland “Motivation” (Diplo remix)

All of these ultimately help crank up the heat for Here I Am. But which version motivates you to hit repeat?
