Earlier this month Kelly Rowland released one of the most emotionally charge singles of her career “Dirty Laundry.”
In the The-Dream-produced single, the former Destiny’s Child star sings about her rocky relationship with ex-bandmate Beyonce and surviving an abusive relationship.
Kelly Rowland said she cried while recording the single. But now she is also having a hard time performing the song live.
During her performance at a gig in Washington D.C. off her Lights Out tour, Kelly Rowland broke down on stage while performing “Dirty Laundry.”
She wept openly on stage prompting her band to stop playing for a moment. But her fans cheered her on to continue performing.
During an interview with 93.9 WKYS radio in D.C., Rowland said for a moment she felt like the crowd wasn’t there.
“It’s really weird when you take yourself in front of a crowd. Even in that moment of when I put my feet up, I felt like I was in therapy. I was singing and talking about what happened, and for a moment, it was like that crowd wasn’t even there. And then when the music stopped…I was like “You are live Kel. Calm down.” And I had to calm down, and then I had to breathe. You get lost…and it’s nothing wrong with getting lost. But that was weird. I felt like I could do that with D.C. ”
The single “Dirty Laundry” will be featured off Kelly Rowland upcoming album Talk A Good Game, due in stores on June 18.
She recently announced that she is postponing a number of her upcoming tour dates off her Lights Out tour with The-Dream after taking on a new gig on The X Factor.
