"Here We Go" is a hip hop-R&B song written by American songwriters Katarina Taylor, Derrick Baker, Josh Burke, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Theodore Lucas, Teedra Moses, James Scheffer and Steven Scipio for Trina's third album Glamorest Life (2005). The song featured R&B singer Kelly Rowland, who sung the chorus and the bridges in the song. The song was released as the album's second single in North America on September 22, 2005, becoming Trina's first solo Top 20 hit ("One Minute Man" which was a song by Missy Elliott and where she was a featured artist on the single) with peak position at #17 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Elsewhere released in April 2006, "Here We Go" also saw success in Europe, reaching number 15 on the UK Singles Chart.

The song uses a sample from "Tender Love", a 1986 top ten single from R&B outfit Force M.D's. Kelly Rowland has also recorded a cover of the song.

The song was certified gold by the RIAA on 6/14/06.[1]

The demo version of the song features vocals from Teedra Moses, later replaced by Kelly Rowland.

Trina included the official remix version of the song on her mixtape Rockstarr: The Baddest Bitch Reloaded, with a new verse from herself as well as a verse from Lil Wayne.

"Here We Go" is the Trina's most successful single to date, and the third most successful domestic Rowland solo single, to date.

Music video[edit]
