LISTEN: R. Kelly Teams With Kelly Rowland for ‘Dirty Laundry (Remix)’


/ June 15, 2013

R. Kelly has some dirty laundry to air out and he does it on Kelly Rowland’s new “Dirty Laundry (Remix).”

“Dirty Laundry” is the second single off Rowland’s fourth LP, Talk a Good Game. On the remix, Kelly starts with his trademark Trapped in the Closet song-speak before opting for some short-lived auto-tune. “This is off the record/ This ain’t for no radio/ This ain’t for no sales, no / I’m just trying to let a motherfucker know,” he sings, later quoting Sweet Brown’s “ain’t nobody got time for that” tagline. (Lot’s of things going on here.)

The R&B genius has been mostly silent since dropping Part 3 of his epic hip-hopera Trapped in the Closet earlier this year, but returns to the stage this weekend as a headliner at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. He will also headline the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago this July.

Rowland’s Talk a Good Game drops this coming week, on June 18.
