Kelly Rowland knocked the skeletons out of her closet when she dropped the heart-wrenching track “Dirty Laundry” where she goes into detail about being abused by a former lover and her rocky relationship with Beyoncé.

She poured her heart out into a live rendition of the Dream-penned song at Riverfest in D.C. Sunday, eventually breaking down on stage.

“It was very emotional. It took me days to record,” Rowland recently told Billboard about the 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.'”
