Jim Jonsin Happy to See Kelly Rowland Win

Kelly Rowland is swiftly climbing the charts with her Lil Wayne-assisted single “Motivation,” and her peers couldn’t be happier for her success, including the song’s producer Jim Jonsin.

After a few attempts to break a single, the Destiny’s Child diva finally has a hit on her hands. “I’m really happy that things are going well for her on this record. A real concern for us was to get that smash for her,” the hitmaker told “She’s a friend of ours as well, so to see her win is huge.”

In addition to “Motivation,” Jonsin and Rico Love recorded three other songs for Kelly’s third album Here I Am, including an upbeat collaboration with Pitbull. “I think we cut a total of four songs with Rico Love and myself,” he added. “I did something with Wayne Wilkins. There’s a couple uptempo songs and we did another midtempo record.”
