The 'Keep It Between Us' singer got emotional during a concert while opening up in a brand new track.

Kelly Rowland broke down in tears on stage this past weekend while performing an emotional new song that references her professional jealousy of former bandmate Beyonce Knowles.

The 'Down For Whatever' singer is currently on her 'Lights Out' tour across the US and found herself crying on stage on Sunday evening (26th May) while singing new album song 'Dirty Laundry'.

Kelly's new song sees her open up about the most difficult parts of her life including feeling jealous of Beyonce's solo success after Destiny's Child went their separate ways.

The song includes the lyrics, "Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it, bittersweet she was up, I was down".

According to US magazine, while performing a show in Washington DC, Kelly had to stop halfway through the song to take a moment and bowed her head in her hands while crying.

The crowd then rallied behind the R&B star and chanted her name and she carried on and finished the set after taking half a minute to take in the atmosphere.

Kelly Rowland is set to return with her new solo album 'Talk A Good Game' in June and she was announced as the newest judge on The X Factor USA last week.
