New Song: Kelly Rowland – ‘Dirty Laundry’

Published: Wednesday 15th May 2013 by Sam

It’s here!

Kelly Rowland‘s explosive new single ‘Dirty Laundry’ premiered on Power 105.1 moments ago and quite literally must be heard to be believed.

Penned by The-Dream, the narrative driven cut brings a new meaning to the title of its parent album ‘Talk A Good Game’.

 Musically cinematic, the track sees the 32-year-old wax honest about an abusive relationship, Beyonce, and much more.

Hear Kelly air that ‘Dirty Laundry’ after the jump…

Wow! Now that we’ve picked our jaws off the floor…

An unconventional “single” if we’ve ever heard one, the haunting cut is exactly what Kelly needed, yet more so what the industry needs.

All too often acts tell anyone who’ll listen that (insert song) is their most honest to date, only for it to contain 4 words repeated in a different order. However, with ‘Laundry‘ Rowland does one better – and actually follows through.

The sparse production boasts shades of R. Kelly’s ‘Down Low / Double Life’, and creates the soundest of foundations for what is, in essence, a lyrical testimony.

Despite her own solo success, Rowland is routinely (and somewhat disrespectfully) pelted with the “Beyonce” questions; hence what better way to address the media’s demand for drama than addressing it head-on? Add to this, the shocking tale of abuse and the desire to know who “Kelly Rowland” really is and what her experiences have been is fulfilled in earnest.

Again, not the most obvious of singles. Yet, it’s this very fact (along with the song’s clever wordplay and shock factor) that should see this a fixture on radio. Indeed, it demands many a play to really “get” the magnitude of what’s been relayed — a great look given the fast-approaching release of its parent album on June 18th. Kudos Kelly, kudos.

        seriously this isn’t the type of song to have a stan war on. this is some serious s*** not something to say ciara is wack or whatever. i don’t think she made this song to care about sales. this was thearpy for her,and their are a lot of women rather you guys like to admit it or not that can relate. when you have people trying to pull you out and you just can’t it’s scary this year alone there were thousands of women murdered by either a crazy ex or their current boyfriend/husband . there have been kids murdered with their mother and then the guy kills himself. let’s talk about those issues rather than argue about well your fav sucks and at least she doing this better than her or her. like lets hold off on the fan war just for this post. i know it’s hard to not be petty but i think it’s kind of necessary. maybe tell something you have a problem with and someone on here can give some advice. like this site is always about hating on each other in the name of your fav but what about having just one post that’s about lifting each other up and being a good person in the name of yourself. I’ll start my name is LAURA FISHER AND MY DIRTY LAUNDRY IS I SURVIVED A SHOT GUN SHOT TO THE SHOULDER BY AN ABUSIVE EX WHEN I TRIED TO LEAVE AND GO BACK TO MY KIDS FATHER. and i still can’t trust anyone enough to let them in and i damn sure don’t see myself living with another man. because i never know when or if he’ll switch into a monster.

      It’s not a flop, because she’s sharing the truth to her fans, basically laying her hear down on the line and getting rid of some past demons, she’s expressing herself and that’s what music is all about so..

    I must say I was not expecting this, considering the title of the song and the recent singles. And after several s** singles, I was VERY pleasantly surprised to see that this one is different. The realness of this song is amazing. I’m sure it will strike a chord with lots of people. You go Kelly! I applaud you for having the courage to be so transparent on this one! Must have taken some strength. Looking forward to hearing the whole album!

      I agree. The story that she is divulging will peak everyone’s interest at first but once they’ve heard the whole story I don’t know if it is the type of song that you’ll want to play or hear over and over. It’s not a “that’s my song/jam” type of song. Good for her for being brave enough to go there though; maybe that was her only mission in the first place.

I want to see Kelly WIN and until she can remove herself from being shaded by the QUEEN MOSQUITO then she will not shine like she should. I think she was the best singer in the trio is truth be told. . .so you need to quit with that Navy versus Kells because it ain’t happening. You looking at the wrong group. . ..looks over at Cierror’s “squad”. Chhhhhhhh

    wow…im speechless…loved her honesty….this is what music is about. Very 90’s. When artists used to give u personal retrospectives musically and not just recycled trash for the next hit.
    I dont’ think this is supposed to be a single anyway, but trust me it will certainly serve its purpose. The buzz that mainstream media will give this and the respect as an individual that will garner her new fans.

    seriously this isn’t the type of song to have a stan war on. this is some serious s*** not something to say ciara is wack or whatever. i don’t think she made this song to care about sales. this was thearpy for her,and their are a lot of women rather you guys like to admit it or not that can relate. when you have people trying to pull you out and you just can’t it’s scary this year alone there were thousands of women murdered by either a crazy ex or their current boyfriend/husband . there have been kids murdered with their mother and then the guy kills himself. let’s talk about those issues rather than argue about well your fav sucks and at least she doing this better than her or her. like lets hold off on the fan war just for this post. i know it’s hard to not be petty but i think it’s kind of necessary. maybe tell something you have a problem with and someone on here can give some advice. like this site is always about hating on each other in the name of your fav but what about having just one post that’s about lifting each other up and being a good person in the name of yourself. I’ll start my name is LAURA FISHER AND MY DIRTY LAUNDRY IS I SURVIVED A SHOT GUN SHOT TO THE SHOULDER BY AN ABUSIVE EX WHEN I TRIED TO LEAVE AND GO BACK TO MY KIDS FATHER. and i still can’t trust anyone enough to let them in and i damn sure don’t see myself living with another man. because i never know when or if he’ll switch into a monster. I hope someone will be real and be there stan war hat aside

    + Late 90’s Brit and Xtina OWNING the mainstream

    I am going to get the dislikes, but I don’t really care for this song. I’ve been feeling Kelly’s recent singles. I was here for Ice, Number 1 and a few others. This one sounds a little dreary for me. The song is interesting lyrically, but I’d prefer that she didn’t mention Beyonce at all for shock value. This seems a bit strategic, the Beyonce/ Kelly drama raises eyebrows and anything concerning the two eggs on a long, drawn-out feud between stans.

    People will continue to make Kelly appear to be victimized (even when she’s not pointing fingers at anyone). Kelly has the freedom to do as she pleases, but I wish DC girls would just ignore everyone looking to create rife and tension between them. Aside from that, I think this one will get the attention she’s looking for (which is probably why it was created), but I’m not sure it’s musically stronger than the controversy its filled with. I think Kelly might be on her way to making her best album of her career, but I hope she stays on the track she’s been on prior to this song!

        @Key,

        I respect that! I actually took that into account. It is a real emotion for Kelly and I’m all for artistic freedom. I personally would rather that we hear some of this stuff in an interview, but ultimately Kelly has the right to express herself in her music the way she wants. I can’t say but so much about that.

      Are you really that dumb?
      She’s not trying to play the victim. All she did was admit that she was envious of Beyoncè’s career once they all went SOLO, as she was always in Beyoncè’s shadow and had a hard time finding her own shine.
      Don’t blame Kelly for the other 3 being kicked out of the group. She was still in her teens at the time, so you don’t know who was in her ear telling her ear advising her to stay.
      Was it Kelly’s dad that managed the group? No!
      So don’t blame her for that.

I see her being jealous of Beyonce’s attention, but Kelly has always been the prettiest member. Only reason Bey surpassed the rest of the members was because her father made sure of it. Kelly you might just get my money. This song is pretty deep and half way relatable. You’ll def get the vote of the women whose been in your shoes.

Although I cant see myself jamming out to this song. Its a song you may play a couple of times and then it eventually wears out and gets old. Its nothing more than a venting track. The beat is also kind of dry to me. I just hope “Talk A Good Game”lives up to its expectations.

      Dude, how is this not single material? Because it ain’t rachet, or is it because she’s not talking about love, drugs or s**? What exactly is your definition of single material?

      It actually makes more sense for her to release this as a single. It will be widely known and will appeal to the masses because it will be much easier to find and relate to. It answers a lot of questions (past and current) AND it will appear on the album. I’m sorry you settle for that generic s*** Rihanna serves her gullable a*s fans.

      To be honest, I don’t know why I’m wasting my time replying to a rihanna fan. Y’all don’t know s*** about music. It’s obvious she wasn’t releasing it for popularity (which is all your fave knows)

      Ohhhhhhh All I see is signs, all I see is dollar signs?

      I hope she collects all the coins she can get because a few years from now she wont be remembered. Money comes and goes. Talent doesnt.

        @KEY :

        Did you read my ENTIRE comment or you just picked on sentence off It ?

        i said :

        “but this is not a single material , or , she needs a really Great video ! ”

        which means it can be a successful single/hit if a reflective video is to be released to enhance the message in this song.

        and i know you just mad and pressed abut rihanna , you won’t be the first and certainly you won’t be the last , but bringing her into this irrelevant,uncalled for and gives an impression of “bitterness”.

        Oh and i don’t like “pour it up” !! and my fav Released “STAY” and “Love the way you lie” , i don’t think she released those for popularity either.

        I was only going off of what I read which is your entire post. You didn’t once tell me what consists in “single material”. I’m sure Kelly knows what she’s doing. No one needs your input on “single material”. Hell, if you know what “single material” is, why don’t you put out one? Your fave has no talent and still has successful singles. I’m sure you could since you know what it’s all about. I could care less about rihanna. I just used her as an example of why I wasted my time commenting on your post. You won’t get it.

        Also, you’ve posted multiple times talking sh-t on this post. I had to make it my mission to check you. Mission completed.

        The exit’s on your left.

    beautifully written! i think this is about matthew knowles & bey. i feel as though its a confession of why kelly dropped him as manager. if you remember, she dropped him first before it was revealed that he was having a child with a mistress. shortly after, bey dropped him as manager and their relationship has been rocky… this song might explain why that is! i wonder if he tried to get with kelly….

    I got it! This IS about Bey (duh) and Matthew! Listen, she said “n****”, “in her shadow” “oh no, you gotta leave”, Kelly was living with them for most of her life. “Trapped in his house, lied to my mama.” “Nobody loves you, not your mama, not your daddy,not even Bey” that Mat telling her through out. Think, why did Kelly live with them, but the other girls didn’t, why the other two leave, but Kelly stayed? Well she didn’t have a choice. They clamed they adopted her, it all make sense now. Maybe that’s why she was crying on her Bday, they said she was talking to Bey and friends, maybe she was telling Bey that she was gonna tell it all. Plus one the the ex girls said years ago that Mat would yell at Kelly and make her cry. S*** is about to hit the fan, the truth is about to come out. Why would you make a song about your sister and your man? that two didn’t subjects and has nothing to do with each other, and in the song it was back in forth, but it’s not, we all know that it was all abotu Bey in for Dad for years and NOW the song makes sense, and this goes with Mat being her father. #solved

        i agree. read my post -two lines up-

        I was just telling my friends that it doesn’t make sense for her to go back & forth between bey & her ex in the same song unless something happened between the 2. then i thought, this has to be another man. If you read between the lyrics closely, shes talking about her struggle to leave bey’s shadow and the man who tried desperately to keep her there. who else had that power besides Matthew Knowles? Hell, he created Bey’s shadow! And the reference to a man putting his hands on her; I believe he must have tried to sleep with her and promised to help advance her career if she did. Maybe she did and nothing happened; confessed to Bey and was turned away without being given the benefit of doubt. Fast forward- she drops him as manager, his affair and child gets revealed and Bey then drops him. Bey & her father’s relationship hasn’t been the same since and I ALWAYS SAID something else must have happened besides the infidelity that split up his marriage. Him hitting on kelly ro would be the perfect reason for Bey to become estranged from Matthew!!! The divorce; nah that would be confusing and all but something deeper had to have happened to create that distance between Bey & Matt….

    She already has about 8 songs (including features) on the radio in current rotation… this is just going to send her into the stratesphere … this is R&B this is the kind of R&B that has been missing from the scene for quite some time. I proud of her for airing her ‘DIRTY LAUNDRY’ Kelly has been full steam ahead to set herself apart from the little girl we knew, the woman we thought she was, and as a just a memeber of Destiny’s Child… I am all a go for a DC3 Reunion now… because these women have GROWN

I woke up this morning & read my twitter n seen tht the song was released after listening I immediately broke down in tears bcuz I was so not prepared for this type of news! Kelly u have had me in tears all day after hearing this song! Alot of ppl is missing the message in the song. It was not about her being jealous of Bey but more resentful towards her! The guy she dated basically turned her against her parents & Bey. Remind u this is around the same time Bey was touring so she was really busy and she had her own life to worry about… Kelly may have felt like she wasn’t concerned or didn’t care about her bcuz she was so focused on her career! Kelly have always spoken nothing but positive about Bey how dare Bey Stans drag Kelly on twitter! She’s only telling her story! No one will never know how it feels to be abused n beaten while u watch your sister on top of the world living the ideal life while u r being beaten everyday and nobody knows! At the same time the world calling you a flop, Bey shadower, u will never have success outside DC! Thats horrible!!! I’ve been waiting for Kelly to tell her story and finally….

  165. She’s Arrived May 15, 2013

    This song is incredibly vulnerable. It has introduced us to a whole new side of Kelly Rowland. She’s taking a huge risk releasing this as a single, and that’s what I love about Kelly. She’s so fearless, so a-typical, so much an artist. This girl never gives herself credit for being as phenomenal as she is. Kelly used to say that she’s learned a lot from Beyonce’; well I think Beyonce’ should take a few pages out of Kelly’s book because in my opinion, Kelly has always been a few steps ahead of her “sister” artistically. Kelly’s music makes me think and feel and empathize. I can’t always relate to what she sings about personally, but I can appreciate that she’s telling her story and exposing the woman/artist inside. Anyone can create a booty-shaking anthem or a club record, and those records are enjoyable; but it takes experience, pain, maturity and a bravery that most recording artists don’t have to record and RELEASE a record like this. I haven’t heard a song this honest since Usher’s “Confessions” and we all know that song/album made his career. Whether or not that happens for Kelly (I think it will) remains to be seen, but either way, it’s safe to say the girl has finally ARRIVED.

    Hats off to you Ms.Rowland

    LOL at all these theories about the “man” beating her being figuratively Mathew. As blunt as the song is, I dont think she’d be that vague or figurative if she were talking about Mathew. Plus also, she was RANDOMLY engaged to that football player around 2004-05 and then they RANDOMLY broke up, so its possible that he was the one that beat on her maybe. Because we never know who shes in a relationship with or anything within it. But if the man she is referring to is Mathew, I dont think Mathew ever beat her physically and i dont think she wouldve made a song so vivid in her being abused by some man for it to be only a metaphor.

    • WRONG May 16, 2013

      It wasn’t Roy Williams. He was the “knight in shining armor” that she let get away because of how hung up she was on the one before him who did her super dirty. Consider Kelly’s timeline. “Dirty Laundry” is her most transparent song to date, but Kelly has always used her life and relationship experiences as inspiration for great/classic songs. She did write a song about Roy and this one is not it. “Still in Love With My Ex” was Roy’s song; and the EX that kept her from committing to Roy is also the one who was apparently abusing her. “Rose Colored Glasses” also tells the story. Kelly is finally making things clearer than they’ve ever been before, but you still have to be smart about this. Don’t go making asinine assumptions about who “Dirty Laundry” fingers. Do your research and then put two & two together.
      I know who “Dirty Laundry” is about and so does Nelly (hint, hint).
      And for the slow folks, NO IT’S NOT NELLY.

This should not have been to transparent and it also should have had a conclusion. Right now its like reading a diary entry and forgetting to make it anonymous.

    The Dream played my Kelly. He focused to much on this Beyonce it’s like she in the theme running through a story that is so much bigger than the inferred jealousy, Dream is a big old Bey stan. He turned a pretty dark deeply personal confession into the “I was jealous of King Bey” admittance. It was probably his agenda to begin with, Kelly too naive to see it.

    I feel for her.

    Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
    Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
    When you’re soaked in tears for years, it never airs out
    When you make pain look this good it never wears out
    This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

    [Verse 1]
    While my sister was on stage, killing it like a m***********
    I was enraged, feeling it like a m***********
    Bird in a cage, you would never know what I was dealing with
    Went out separate ways, but I was happy she was killing it
    Bittersweet, she was up, I was down
    No lie, I feel good for her, but what do I do now?
    Forget the records
    Off the record, I was going through some b*******
    Post-survivor, she on fire, who wanna hear my b*******?
    Meanwhile, this n**** putting his hands on me
    I swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry

    [Hook]

    [Verse 2]
    And it’s almost been a decade
    I’m behind them black shades
    Roll up like it’s all good, right up out that escalade
    Fix my make-up, “get it together, Kelly, get it together”
    Then we make up, “well get it together, n****, get it together”
    Kinda lucky, I was in her shadow
    Phone call from my sister, “what’s the matter?”
    She said, “Oh no, baby – you gotta leave!”
    I’m on the kitchen floor – he took the keys
    I was mad at everybody, I mean everybody
    Yeah, her, her, her her everybody
    Five years later, I got my s*** down pat
    Think I had it good, and they don’t know how bad
    Fooled everybody, except myself
    Soaking in this hurt, bathing in the dirt

    [Hook]

    [Verse 3]
    So here I am in the spin cycle
    We’re comin and we’re goin
    Nobody can know this
    And I was trapped in his house, lyin’ to my mama
    Thought it could get no worse as we maximize the drama
    Started to call them people on him
    I was battered
    He hittin the 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 Bey”
    He turned me against my sister
    I missed ya

    [Hook]
