Beyonce’s Producer Bashes Kelly Rowland’s ‘Motivation’ Single

While Beyonce and Kelly Rowland are like “sisters,” critics continue to find ways to bring forth rivalry between the former Destiny’s Child beauties. The latest comes from one of Beyonce’s producers, who voiced his dislike for Rowland’s No. 1 single “Motivation” on Twitter, calling the track “weak.”

“How can this kr song with the weakest beat and melody of all time be the #1 song on urban!? Oh yeah. Wayne,” wrote Jeff Bhasker, who is credited for three tracks on Beyonce’s new album ‘4,’ including “Party” featuring Andre 3000.

After taking some heat from Rowland’s fans, Bhasker returned hours later, insisting he gave the record another try but it was still “horrid.”

“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,” he writes.

It seems Bhasker has been hanging around Kanye West for too long. He has been at west’s side since ‘808s & Heartbreak’ in 2008 as well as his recent single “Runaway” off West’s follow up album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.’ Bhasker is also credited with writing and producer credits on a number of songs on Grammy-winner Alicia Keys’s 2009 album ‘The Element of Freedom,’ including hits singles “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” and “Wait Til You See My Smile.”

Rowland’s “Motivation” featuring Lil Wayne was produced by Jim Jonsin and written by Rico Love. No comments has been made from either party or Rowland herself.

Was Bhasker too harsh?
