New Video: Kelly Rowland – ‘Dirty Laundry’

Published: Monday 22nd Jul 2013 by Sam


After the lengthiest of waits, Kelly Rowland has at last unwrapped the video for her dramatic new single ‘Dirty Laundry’.

Filled to the brim with many a haunting lyric, the testimony of a track can now be paired with an equally as engaging visual.

Check it out after the jump…

Stunningly emotive and conceptually captivating, this is easily one of Ms.Kelly’s best videos. Here’s hoping its arrival isn’t too late.

‘Laundry’ is lifted from Rowland’s fourth studio album ‘Talk A Good Game’, which is in-stores now.

    Hmmmmmmm…. much better video than that cheap mess chart down low im sorry i mean kisses down low

    • Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

      Kisses down low was all types of cheap

    • Music July 22, 2013

      It didn’t look that cheap tho. Exaggerating.

    • xcbxcbert546 July 22, 2013

      ~~ Unbelievable~`Wow~~`My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy black man. They met through ~BlàckWhìteHub. Ç o m ~~ They told me it is a Serious black white dating for black & white single s seeking interracial relationships, friendships, dating ,love and more.. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, and so on….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

    • Gregg July 22, 2013

      lol, i liked that video though, am i the only one? lol

  3. JV July 22, 2013


    Kudos for Kelly finding the courage to speak out about being abused but does this really need to be a single?

    Seems like a ploy for attention. Just saying.

  4. HG July 22, 2013

    Should’ve been released album release week. But nonetheless STUNNING.

  5. Cream July 22, 2013

    Kelly I can see your halo halo halo halo halo I can see your haloooo ooooo

    • Quan July 22, 2013

      I didn’t even know Halo had a video TBH… off to youtube to see!

    • Quan July 22, 2013

      While I understand the idea and emotions behind it, I still appreciate her bravery and effort!

  6. Britney Stan July 22, 2013

    Not with her copying halo & trust and believe video

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      Britney stop hating h** go worry about Britney flop ass album… Next

    • DESTINY’S CHILD STAN July 22, 2013

      I am sorry but everybody copied Aaliyah from Rock the Boat. Everytime I see a pool scene like that I think about Aaliyah’s video.

  7. Im Goin Numb July 22, 2013

    Reminds me of a Keyshia Cole video tbh

  8. Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

    When the drink spilled on on her she like -_- omg no you didn’t.. lol

  9. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 22, 2013

    I’m Speechless….. it is PERFECT.

    let Me take an hour to Absorb it, you guys look at someone’s Life story, you Understand ?
    F*** charts, f*** sales, F*** anything, be human beings and appreciate what she did, maybe someone is in the same situation as her!!!!
    she has a message.

    The Video is just “Russian roulette” kind of sad, the Intro alone depressed me.


    *Gives a round of applause and a standing ovation*

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      *Gives a round of applause and a standing ovation*

    • Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

      Russian Roulette is not sad.. Lmao
      This video reminds me off Halo!!!

      I really liked you but you seem as if you’re trash I don’t know 🙁

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 22, 2013

        F*** what you Think about me.

        and RR is not sad… it is depressing.

  10. RG2 July 22, 2013

    Welll finally. This video should’ve been out almost a month ago, I like it though.

  11. Quan July 22, 2013

    I am a huge Kelly fan and I am truly disappointed we waited all this time for that! I was expecting much more visuals. I am really not understanding what the delay was. That video look like it could have been shot in the matter of hours. Again I love me some Kelly, but I expected much more. Maybe pics of who she was mad at flashing across the screen. Maybe some interaction or a couple acting out what she is singing about. In my opinion it was not worth the wait. But as fan it is my duty to still support, push and request, but always be honest above all!

  12. Chillin July 22, 2013

    I dont care if this video was late! This is absolutely STUNNING and BRILLIANT work!! Regardless of where this song charts..i am a PROUD fan!!!

  13. Monstarebel July 22, 2013

    Nice video… but after listening to her album idk why this is a single like the song is to personal imo I remember or freak shoulda been single #2 *sigh*

  14. BET July 22, 2013

    Please dont compare this piece of art with halo, just don’t

    • Rita is Queen July 22, 2013


  15. Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

    To late h** this song will make zero impact on the charts r.i.p to the talk a good game era the s*** is officially over now.

    • Chillin July 22, 2013

      And Ciara never made an impact..or did you forget

      • Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

        Thats why she has two top 40 hits on the hot 100 right now right? B**** flop down low couldn’t even make top 60 & s***** laundry will never enter nobodies charts f**.

      • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

        You mad!!!!!

    • Quan July 22, 2013

      You stan for an artist who first week sales could not even double that 37,000 she did with the last album. So maybe she should have realized nobody was checking for her then! R.I.P to Ciara’s whole career! She better off singing hooks for Future!

      • Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

        Two top 40 hits obviously more people are checking for Queen Ciara then Kelly now bye B****

      • Absolved July 22, 2013

        Stop trying to cling to that “two top 40 hits on the hot 100” as though it was impressive. Come back when she’s got two top 10s at the same time. Until then, there’s no thwarting the sad reality that Ciara’s album debuted with under 60k, after over a year of promotion and her label trying its damnedest to scrutinize the market for her.

        “two top 40 hits on the hot 100” don’t mean s***. If this was a game between the two of them, and I’m not saying it is, but if it was…Kelly is the winner. She opened with more, and had 1/2 the promotion.

        Not that I even believe that you’re a real Ciara fan, but it still needed to be said.

    • Savannah July 22, 2013

      Yet your faves album sold less than Kelly’s with “two top 40 hits” so what does that say about her?

    • ACEISS July 22, 2013

      Ciara Two Top 40 hits, massive promo week = 57,000

      Kelly No Top 40 hit, way less promo then Ciara = 68,000

      I also believe Kelly didn’t promote as well as she could because she buried her grandmother during her promo week.

    • Chillin July 22, 2013

      LMAO TWO (2) Top 40 Hits and the album still FLOPPED and sold Less than Kelly who didnt have a hit..sorry boo…if thats anything to brag about you are just as BASIC as Ciara’s album sales

  16. MissImpartial July 22, 2013

    What a b******* video I expected more of a story line than this. Was bored halfway through this.

    • Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

      Exactly! She tried & failed

      • Quan July 22, 2013

        As did Ciara with that hideous hair album and wardrobe. Her whole error was ASS

      • Matthew Charlery Smith July 22, 2013

        She needs to stop making Beyonce the needle upon which her career spins.

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 22, 2013

      Hi. 😀

      Long time no See.

      • MissImpartial July 22, 2013


        I know I stopped reading for a while it started to become boring as most people have left.

  17. Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

    R**** & Beyshit gave me more emotion in Russian roulette & Halo tbh they had much better videos.

  18. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

    I like Kisses Down Low although she was copying beyonce with the Countdown Video.

    B**** wants to be out of beyonces shadow but still sings about Beyonce and copy her videos


    • Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013

      You got some nerve talking about copying when you stan for beyhoe

    • Quan July 22, 2013

      Please Kisses Down Low was much better than that low budget Countdown video. Please do not go there because Beyonce steals her whoke career from people and has been called on it several times! A seat you will have

      • Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

        Love On Top slays every ciara single bye…
        Countdown is better than anything kelly and Ciara has gave us so far so bye stupid b****!

        Countdown is one of the best videos from 4 toodles 🙂

    • MissImpartial July 22, 2013

      The words copying Beyonce shouldn’t be mentioned by the behive. It is a delicate issue which the behive couldn’t never win.

      • Micks July 22, 2013

        But people can still copy Beyonce.

    • alessandro July 22, 2013

      i guess its better being in beyonce’s shadow than thinking you are beyonce! go get a life b****

  19. harris boy July 22, 2013

    sorry but i dont feel bad for grown women who STAY with abusive men………a man can only mistreat you if u let him.

    • Cici Slaaaays July 22, 2013


    • MissImpartial July 22, 2013

      I think it is a situation which is a bit easy to judge. Abusive men don’t start mistreating someone on the first date but they make the woman feel she is the most important thing in their life. Then they start to put her down and strip her of any confidence and make her feel dependent. They literally brainwash the victim into believing every word. That is why it takes sometimes years to break free from an abusive relationship.

    • Savannah July 22, 2013

      Don’t speak on something you know NOTHING about.

  20. JV July 22, 2013

    Let’s be honest… we all wanted reenactment, featuring BEY! LMAO!

  21. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

    This Video is better than Russian Roulette…
    Russian Roulette is trash yuck… Te amo was a better video maybe I’m biased because she uses my home language spanish lol.

    • Rita is Queen July 22, 2013

      Honey please i dont even like Rihanna but Russian roulette was a way better video

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 22, 2013

      RR and DL are 2 different Stories.

      Kelly’s Life story is More Complex.

  22. Daniel Teflon July 22, 2013


  23. Career Ender July 22, 2013

    she’s so flipin beautiful *licks her*

    Perfect video!!! 5/5

  24. the real cake like lady gaga July 22, 2013

    Nice video..

    This song sicks out like a sore thumb on the album though, it shouldn’t be there.. It doesn’t blend in with the album IMO

  25. Rita is Queen July 22, 2013

    Sorry Kelly aint nobody checking for this no more.

    • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

      Who is checking for Rita? Nobody

      • Rita is Queen July 22, 2013

        And b**** who tf is checking for trina raggedy a*** infested ass

      • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

        -Wips down Trina platinum albums- Oh Rita your still here? Didn`t see you right there your so irrelevant.

    • Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

      Who the f*** is rita whora? Has she charted US charts yet? Okay bye 🙂

      • Trinarockstarr July 22, 2013

        Don`t know never heard of her. She coming for Kelly because Kelly is doing the damn thing

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) July 22, 2013

      Like no ones checking for that STD s*** Oral? Ok

  26. Rita is Queen July 22, 2013

    The beehive talking about copying? When beyonce whole career is based off copying other artist Lmao.

    • Savannah July 22, 2013

      Beyonce owns your fave so I’d tread lightly if I were you…

  27. Daniel Teflon July 22, 2013


  28. RihBoy July 22, 2013

    The timing is off i think if she had put this out a week after the release…her album sales would have probably been a little better……

  29. stephanie July 22, 2013

    Well done Kelly!!! a proud fan!

  30. Real love July 22, 2013

    Love it Kelly.. Dame she got lost at sea for 12 hours Friday and the video comes out today and shes in water… I no it sounds crazy but glad you are safe Kelly.. Love the video.. I hear her label made the people edit the video again cause it was parts they didn’t like..

  31. Daniel Teflon July 22, 2013


  32. Ciaras my vocal coach July 22, 2013

    The struggle to get sympathy sales lol

    • alessandro July 22, 2013

      oh and where is ciara’s sales right now? next

    • Jonathan Gardner July 22, 2013

      Ciara your VOCAL COACH?

      Please tell me this is shade ROFLMFAO

    • Jonathan Gardner July 22, 2013

      Maybe Ci-Error should release a remix and try that too.

      Maybe it will make up for the 11,000 copy difference between Kelly’s superior first week sales and her’s

  33. Ciaras my vocal coach July 22, 2013

    When will Kellys career stop revolving around beyonce?

  34. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

    Who the f*** is Rita Ora? I don’t know her 🙁

  35. Bey Fan July 22, 2013

    Love it…. seems a little incomplete…. But i love it

  36. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

    Its a cute video tbh…. No hate Kelly Rowland did her thing tho

  37. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

    Sam is holding my comments WTF. Lol…

  38. DESTINY’S CHILD STAN July 22, 2013

    Could have been more visual. She reminded me of Mary J with them shades on. But its an ok video.

  39. the real cake like lady gaga July 22, 2013

    Not that Brazilian t***** spamming TGJ comment box.. A third world a*** infected f** better sit all the way down, no one cares what you have to say b****

  40. Baby Blanco July 22, 2013

    She must love being in beyonce shadow

  41. Damo July 22, 2013


  42. Super Cisus July 22, 2013

    Oh she still trying?

    I mean this video is a copy cat of so many tbh…

    • Super Cisus July 22, 2013

      B**** don’t steal my name

  43. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) July 22, 2013

    It’s a nice performance video. A little late but I’ll take it. Secondly, those videos did not come to mind when watching this; Y’all stay reaching lol. Kudos to Kelly, Ciara, Fantasia, etc. for holding it down for R&B this summer. I wish nothing but success for all of them.

  44. Jessie j stan July 22, 2013

    Giving me Keyshia Cole Ts

  45. ThaLastDON July 22, 2013

    Great Video for a moving song ! Wish the video had more action btw kelly and the guy but this is her best visual so far. Even tho this is kelly’s best video I kno it’s not gonna help the song on the chart’s cuz it has no shock value u in the video..

  46. Savannah July 22, 2013

    It’s cool. She looks gorgeous but it’s a little too late for the video….

  47. shisha July 22, 2013

    Very captivating video!! Kellys so stunningly beautiful!! Hate that they had to cut the video/song short tho!

  48. RoyalKev July 22, 2013

    Kelly looks great in this video, but that’s usually the case with her these days. The video doesn’t have a lot going on, but it gets the point across. I just don’t understand why Kelly’s team went with hype over substance. I have to admit that Kelly’s album is much better than I thought it was initially. Music I like usually doesn’t take long to grow on me, but Kelly’s did make a big impression on me right away. It turns out after really giving it a listen that it’s actually her best work to date. I think there are about 5 songs that are miles ahead of this one. As for the video I see a blend of Aaliyah, Bey and Rihanna thrown in, but it was a good watch.

    • RoyalKev July 22, 2013

      *didn’t make a big impression

  49. just….moi July 22, 2013

    Cool MV. Hmm Kellz got this one right..

  50. bleazx July 22, 2013

    What did this have to do with Beyonce or anybody else.
    People can never stay on topic 🙁

    The video is ok. Just ok..the song is horrible and too stripped back and doesn’t belong in the album,even as a bonus or exclusive track.
    Why are Ciara fans still here making fun of Kelly?
    A number 44 and 25 are that serious? An album that couldn’t push over 60k is something to brag about?Ciara is done. This isn’t 2004,the only year she mattered. Almost a decade later and she still is making sub standard watered down popnB/crunk throw away B sides that most struggling artist wouldn’t even take!
    I’ve never seen the halo or Russian Roulette video..So I’m not sure if there are any similarities

    • Chillin July 22, 2013

      As a TRUE fan of Kelly..the only thing i can say is the video is definitely late..and im SURE she knows that this probably wont make an impact onthe charts..HOWEVER, her fans wanted it, and we have been wating patiently .She obviously did this to please her fans

  51. Super Cisus July 22, 2013

    The first word that comes to mind:BASIC. Kelly is a basic b**** that aint on the charts

    • Sarah July 22, 2013

      Like Basic Instinct Sales?

    • alessandro July 22, 2013


    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) July 22, 2013

      Oh what a surprise, a Ciara stan hating on someone more success *rolls eyes*

  52. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 22, 2013

    I don’t know why is this lady gaga stan licking my a*** seriously b**** get a life….

    My country BRAZIL >>> Your Country.
    You’re dismissed h**

  53. bow down to Cisus July 22, 2013

    Honey the song is boring as f*** the video is boring and forgettable next

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) July 22, 2013

      Kinda like Ciara’s new album? I like Ciara but you know that album will be forgotten by September..

      • thetruth July 23, 2013

        Ciara has an album out? Well danm… #noshade

  54. Alex July 22, 2013

    I quite like the video. There are some scenes which coincide brilliantly with the lyrics. However, it shouldn’t have taken this long to premiere. Kelly needs to move on to the third single rather sharpish, preferably ‘Gone’.

  55. B****** ARE A MESS July 22, 2013

    Yawn b****! Dirty laundry stinks b****, Wash that s***!

  56. message for csquad July 22, 2013

    C error fans need to let it go,body party reached top 30 because of streaming not sales,I’m out reached top 50 because of streaming not sales.body hasn’t even sold 500k,your fave is a flop and you will deal

    • Jonathan Gardner July 22, 2013


  57. Micks July 22, 2013

    Nice video. But I feel like she waited a bit too long again.

  58. thetruth July 22, 2013

    Body party hasnt even sold 300k yet! Ppl keep saying kelly KDL was a flop but she is almost close to going gold world wide w kisses down low. N u r right ciara is top 40 bcuz of streams n of course bcuz of nicki minaj! Kelly had no features this time around with her singles…

  59. newsnotgossip July 22, 2013

    It’s a interesting video and pretty thinking out of the box. I think the wine spilling was supposed to be a symbol of the battery Kelly suffered as well as wearing the shades, rather than show her or another woman actually being subjected to domestic violence. The whole famous female singer being beaten by a boyfriend has been done so many times in hip hop and R&B (example: Ashanti’s rain on me and Fantasia’s Free Yourself), so going that route would not really have made the video standout. As for all the water it ties in to Kelly’s sign of being an Aquarius.

    • ‘THIRDWARDWALL July 22, 2013

      I thought it had more to do with the fact dat she said she was ‘soaked in tears for years’ and it never wears out. She was actually swimming in all tears shes cried since it happened?… unless im thinkin too out of the box

  60. Music July 22, 2013

    This will be forgotten before it’s remembered. #justsayin

  61. ‘THIRDWARDWALL July 22, 2013

    @Destiny’sChildStan WOOOOPS so errrtime a b**** floats in some f****** water dey get accused of copying aaliyah…. s*** i guess i copied aaliyah when i was in the damn bath dis mornin #BASIC

  62. stephy the lambily July 22, 2013


  63. DIGGER BEY July 22, 2013

    Just like Beautiful Flop. If it wasn’t for Miguel or payola, the s*** would of been the biggest flop of all time by someone of her status. And b**** worry about why The Art Of Flopping has been pushed bac again and will mostly likely get shelved bwahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahha

  64. MusicLover July 22, 2013

    Her video was ok but i prefer Kisses Down Low because it was so colorful.

  65. DIGGER BEY July 22, 2013

    Kelly, Kelly, Kelly. Although I luv the video, I’m kind of wondering why was the wait so long? The video should of been released the week of TAGG. These lesser h*** like Citranny, is looking and she would luv to take ur spot! Queen Kelly, please don’t start this era all wrong! I could care less about #1 hits and all but gurl u have smashes on your album! #1s and top tens = TAGG! I just don’t want u to sell yourself short! Fawk X-Factor! Focus more on ur album! Remember these lesser flop h*** like Citranny would love to take your spot.

  66. DIGGER BEY July 22, 2013

    Smh @ The Delusional and The Retarted Peasants. Um….Aaliyah wasn’t the first artist to use water scenes in her video, nor float n the video in the water. U b****** must be under 20 years old. And why oh why are The T***** stans here??????? Shouldn’t u peasants be in FYE, Walmart or Target buying ur fav’s lastest flop. Oh, I know what it is. The Non Factor Squad are broke f*** lmao. You all TROLL TGJ 24/7. Unstead of supporting ur fav. Because your broke as hell to get out lmaoooooooooooooooo. #ME AND BROKE B****** DON’T GET ALONG

  67. JER July 22, 2013

    Oh. I thought the video was already out.

  68. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) July 22, 2013

    It is a TAD late Kelly but well done! I’d rather wait for a quality video than get some rushed snippet bs video like….I won’t.. Well done Kelly.

  69. Angela Wesley July 22, 2013

    To me the whole video met the concept of the song.
    I like this video much better than Kisses down Low.
    Kelly’s two best videos to date is Keep it between
    Us and this one.
