Kelly Rowland is gearing up for a very busy summer as one of the judges on The X Factor, but until then, she’s been getting some tour dates in as she prepares to drop her new album, Talk A Good Game.
Last night, she took to the stage in Silver Spring, MD to perform some new tracks off of the upcoming LP,but once she got to “Dirty Laundry” she couldn’t help but brake down.
I am so proud of Kelly for allowing herself to feel vulnerable in front of her fans. Letting the world know about an abusive and dysfunctional relationship takes an enormous amount of courage because of the ‘what if’ factor. When I watched the video I broke down myself and the audience was great support. I pray that Kelly had all the success in the world. I can’t wait to see the rest of the album.
Kelly Rowland is now labeled as an OnPointCeleb! MuaH!
Watch Performance Below:
Kelly Rowland recently released a song called “Dirty Laundry”. The song talks about how Kelly had a lot going on in her life from an abusive boyfriend to not speaking to Bey as much because of her boyfriend.
In a chat with Billboard this week, Kelly expressed that the song was emotionally exhausting and extremely difficult to record, needing almost a dozen takes to get it right. She also had to walk out of the room before the song was played during a recent listening session:
It was very emotional. It took me days to record. I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it. I always hope that my music can inspire someone, the same way other artists inspire me. Dream said, ‘I want to write you a record so that people will know exactly who you are, underneath it all.
The song was a result of Kelly revealing some of her personal life to The-Dream who was able to turn her words into a great record. He tells Billboard:
What unfolds on TV or on the Internet, it’s never really that. You think it is but it’s just not. When you have a stage like Kelly has, you should talk about that part of your life. I think Kelly’s way deeper than that.
Tons of celebs took to Twitter to show their support after the song was released yesterday, including Kelly’s former bandmate Letoya Luckett, Gabrielle Union, and Tika Sumpter.
