SALUTE MTV:
They say airing your dirty laundry in public is uncouth, but when your entire life is in the spotlight, they’re bound to see it anyway. On her brand-new single released on Wednesday (May 15), Kelly Rowland unapologetically is putting everything on the clothesline for the entire world to see — even the delicates, from her acknowledged jealousy of Beyoncé to an abusive relationship that still seems to haunt her.

And from the sounds of “Dirty Laundry,” a collaboration with The-Dream off Rowland’s upcoming Talk a Good Game album, she’s got an awfully heavy load. It’s everything the 32-year-old has kept in for 10 years in the form of smooth R&B — with each chapter separated by melancholy coos that “when you’re soaked in tears for years, it never airs out/ When you make pain look this good, it never wears out.”
