Kelly Rowland debuted her latest song ‘Dirty Laundry’ online earlier this month and immediately it began to cause a storm thanks to it’s stark and revealing lyrics and back-to-basics R&B style used by Rowland in favour of her dance-orientated singles of late. During a concert at The Fillmore Silver Springs in Washington D.C. last night the song’s subject clearly got too much for the singer, as she began crying during a heartfelt rendition of the new single halfway through her set.
Rowland is currently taking her ‘Lights Out Tour’ across America and her first stop off came last night at the D.C. show.The-Dream collaboration before being forced to stop after singing the line “He turned me against my sister, I missed ya,” after which the singer sat in a hunched position with her face away from the audience at the center of the stage. It looked as though she might not be able to carry on but the determined singer wiped her eyes and continued the rest of the song, remaining professional throughout the rest of the show.
The song is an emotion-filled effort in which she admits her jealousy towards Destiny’s Child bandmate Beyoncé Knowles, as well as revealing that while Beyoncé’s success was exploding she was also involved in an abusive relationship.
