The spotlight was indeed on the lovely Kelly Rowland this week!
The Grammy-winning singer dropped her highly anticipated album, Talk a Good Game on Tuesday. She performed her latest hit single, “Street life” featuring Pusha T on Good Morning American on Wednesday and ended the week on Thursday with a press conference promoting her new X Factor gig.
In addition to all of that, Ms. Kelly released a teaser video for her controversial new record, ‘Dirty Laundry.” As previously reported, this is the revealing tune where Rowland opens up about her past abusive relationship, battling her own demons and being in the shadows of Beyoncé. Despite the “eyebrow raising” lyrics, Rowland says she is not jealous of her “sistah” in a recent interview with In Touch magazine:
“I’m not saying I’m jealous of her by any means!” explaining the song is about “personal battles” and not her childhood friend. “It’s so sad that people always go straight to that place [of jealousy]. It’s ridiculous. It’s basically about me going through some struggles in my life while she was doing her thing.”
Later, Rowland went on to explain that Beyoncé heard the song before its release and expressed nothing but love for the record.
“She’s incredibly supportive,” Kelly gushes of Beyoncé’s feedback. “She was proud of me and thought the song was incredible.”
Take a look at Rowland’s teaser video for Dirty Laundry below:
