Kelly Rowland Airs Out Her ‘Dirty Laundry’
Kelly Rowland reveals some shocking things that she has never told the press in her new song, ‘Dirty Laundry,’ set to appear on her forthcoming album, “Talk a Good Game.”
The former Destiny’s Child member is honest and unabashed on the track, which was produced by The-Dream. She holds nothing back when singing about her career downfalls – pursuing a solo career while she watched Beyonce flourish — and relationship turmoil — she was involved with a verbally and physically abusive man.
“Let’s do this dirty laundry/ When you soaked them tears for years it never airs out/ When you make pain look this good it never wears out,” Rowland belts out on the chorus.
“When my sister was on stage, killin’ it like a mother—er/ I was enraged, feelin’ it like a mother—er/ Bird in a cage, you would never know what I was dealing with/ Went our separate ways, but I was happy she was killin’ it/ Bittersweet, she was up, I was down,” she details.
As for the man who did her wrong, she reveals he “turned me against my sister.” “I was battered, he hit in a window like it was me until it shattered/ He pulled me out, he said, ‘Don’t nobody love you but me, not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not B.’” the songstress discloses on the song.
“Dirty Laundry” comes after the release of songs like “Gone” featuring Wiz Khalifa and “Feet to the Fire” with Pharrell, among others.
“Talk a Good Game” arrives June 18.
