New Video: Kelly Rowland ‘Dirty Laundry’

Kelly Rowland breaks up your drab Monday cycle with a reflective (and wet) visual for her soul-baring number “Dirty Laundry.” When the Destiny’s Child songstress debuted the Dream-penned track in May, the single went viral as Kelly went on-record about an abusive relationship and her envy of bestie Beyoncé. Here, the spotlight is all her own, though she admits it took a dozen takes to get the record right.

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