"Here We Go" (also known as Here We Go Again) is a song recorded by Miami-based rapper Trina, released on September 23, 2005 as the second single from her third album Glamorest Life (2005). The song featured American 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 23, 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 the UK and New Zealand, reaching number 15 in both countries. The single went Gold in 2006 for selling over 500,000 copies.[1]

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 June 14, 2006.[2]

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 one of the highest charting songs for Rowland as a solo artist on the US US Billboard Hot 100 until her 2011 hit, "Motivation".

With the relationship being over, she decides to move out, empties his house, puts his possessions for sale and she and Kelly get on a cab and smile. Her love interest comes home in a taxi, enters his home, notices all his belongings and possessions are gone, finds an envelope on the floor and picks it up. As he opens it, he pulls out the photographs containing him and his mistress and is shocked to discover Trina found out about the affair.
