Kelly Rowland let it all out during her latest performance of “Dirty Laundry” in Washington D.C where she broke down into tears after she let out a soulful series of rifts.
When Kelly released the track “Dirty Laundry” and opened up about being jealous of Beyonce and struggling with an abusive relationship fans, friends, and others in the music industry all felt her pain and were able to relate to the heart felt track.
She earned the respect of many as she put all her true feelings on the song and as she kicked off her summer tour with The Dream in D.C. it was obvious just how much dirty laundry Kelly was really airing out.
Despite the fact the Rowland didn’t actually pen the song herself, The Dream did most of the writing, it is certainly a direct reflection of Rowland’s experiences and struggles which is enough to make anyone break down into tears when performing such a personal track in front of the public.
“When you’re soaked in tears for years, it never airs out / When you make pain look this good it never wears out,” she sings during the chorus giving her fans just a small look at her painful past.
During the second verse of the song she opens up about trying to stay strong in the media spotlight and not wanting people to see just how badly she was really hurting.
The 32-year-old “Kisses Down Low” songstress managed to make it through most of the performance holding back her tears as the crowd sang along with her. It wasn’t until the end of the song that Rowland had a tear filled break down.
It was definitely the honest and vulnerable type of performance that we usually don’t get to see much of in today’s music.
You can pick up your own copy of her new album “Talk A Good Game” on June 18th.
