Kelly Rowland Says Emotional New Song 'Dirty Laundry' Took "Days" To Record

1 June 2013, 09:42

The 'Down For Whatever' singer's latest song goes into depth about her jealousy for Beyonce Knowles.

Kelly Rowland has revealed it took several days to record her emotional new song 'Dirty Laundry' because she got so upset during the recording process.

The 'Keep It Between Us' singer is preparing to release her next album 'Talk A Good Game', and says the album track 'Dirty Laundry' was particularly difficult to lay down because of the lyrical content of the song.

The song focuses on some of the darkest moments in Kelly's live, including problems with past boyfriends and her professional jealous of Destiny's Child bandmate Beyonce.

"It took me days to record," Kelly revealed to Billboard. "I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it.

"I always hope that my music can inspire someone," the 'Down For Whatever' singer continued. "The same day other artists inspire me.

"The-Dream said, 'I want you to write a record so people will know exactly who you are, underneath it all," Kelly added.

Earlier this week the US star performed the song live on stage in Washington DC (26th May) and broke down in tears at one point, needing to take half a minute to compose herself before continuing.

Kelly Rowland releases 'Talk A Good Game' later this month, which boasts a team-up track with her Destiny's Child bandmates Beyonce and Michelle Williams.
