Kelly Rowland revealed she was jealous of Beyonce in her new record “Dirty Laundry” which has earned her the love and respect of many on Twitter. Meanwhile, Beyonce has already returned to the stage after she was forced to cancel her first concert in her entire musical career.
Kelly Rowland has always been living in Beyonce’s shadow ever since their days in Destiny’s Child and just recently has seen major success in her own solo career.
While fans of both Kelly and Queen Bey’s felt like Kelly should very well be jealous of the R&B diva, Rowland only had genuinely kind things to say about Mrs. Carter.
Well that has finally changed. While Kelly still admits that she loves Beyonce like a sister, her new song “Dirty Laundry” reveals that she did go through a depressing stage in her life where she was incredibly jealous of Bey’s solo career.
“When my sister was on stage killin it like a mother f***er/ I was enraged, feelin’ it like a mother f***er/ Bird in a cage/ You would never know what I was dealin’ with/ Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin’ it,” she sings in the very first verse of the song.
Other lyrics describe Beyonce’s success as being “bittersweet” for Rowland who was happy for her sister but upset that her own career hadn’t taken off the same way.
Her true feelings about the leader of Destiny’s Child weren’t the only emotional confession on the track either.
“Meanwhile this ni**a putting his hands on me… I swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry,” she sings as she admits to being involved in an abusive relationship.
While she never gave the abusive man a name she points out that he certainly had something to do with her bitter feelings towards her Destiny’s Child sister.
“He pulled me out and said, ‘Don’t nobody love you but me/ Not your mama / Not your daddy / and especially not Bey,’” the emotion packed verse continues.
The song created a huge spark on Twitter with many users applauding Kelly for being a “real woman.”
“I have so much respect for kelly after hearin dirty laundry so #real,” one user wrote.
“I culdn put tht out 4 the world to hear,” another user tweeted. “Kelly Rowland is a real woman for tht.”
Others were furious that any man would even put his hands on the beautiful songstress.
“U put ya hands on kelly rowland tho!? Ur a dead man walkin,” one Kelly Rowland fan page tweeted.
“Wat kind of man can put his hands on a #beautiful #chocolate woman like Kelly Rowland,” another fan wrote in disgust.
Many of the other tweets about the song celebrated the fact that Rowland is back on her game now and appears to be a happy woman – and there are a good number of threats about the man in the song as well.
