Hey everybody!!! Happy Hump Day!! I had to make a post about this new single that Kelly Rowland leaked: Dirty Laundry.  Yall,Ms. Kelly gave ALL the tea in this single.  If you have not heard it go here to hear it. 

If this song did not touch your heart, you must be an emotionally unavailable person... all the time.  Ms. Kelly dives deep into the bittersweet reaction she had to Beyonce's success.  She discussed how she felt lost after the Destiny Child's Survivor album and how people chose Beyonce's music over hers.  But what really choked me up is when she sang about her domestic violence relationship.  Yall, Ms. Kelly almost had me in tears. 

But what I really liked about this song is how Kelly highlights what a lot of celebrities do: smile for the cameras and be depressed behind closed doors.  A lot of the times we see these celebrities and think their lives are great: fancy clothes, nice houses and cars, vacays on private islands.  But we always find out later that they were miserable the whole time.  Ms. Kelly showed us in this song to not be fooled by the glitz and glamour.  Who would have known that the beautiful Ms. Rowland was loving someone that was hitting her upside her head?  This song reinforce what I already knew about the rich and famous life: It Aint All of That. 

This song has made me see Kelly Rowland in a new light.  We have never heard from her how she really felt about the girls going their separate ways.  All we heard was the generic answer she gave in interviews.  But to me not only did she sing about her experience about separating from a music group but she sang the woes of others who have had to live in the shadow of their more successful fellow group member.  Having to tell others that you are happy for their success when really you are wondering why you can't have the big career. Yes, Ms. Kelly said so much in this 5 minute song.

Again, I say, if you have not heard this song you need to hear it.  I have never heard a song with so much truth in it.  Ms. Kelly, you are more talented than you will ever know and I look forward to your career soaring to great heights. 

What are your thoughts on the song?
