While Kelly Rowland dropped some pretty shocking revelations about Beyoncé and an abusive relationship on “Dirty Laundry,” it appears as if her Destiny’s Child sisters couldn’t be prouder of her confessions.
Speaking with Washington radio station 93.9 WKYS, the recently announced “X Factor” judge said that Bey and Michelle Williams’ response to The-Dream-penned collaboration was endearing, with Bey telling Rowland that she “never left” her side.
“She heard how real I was and was like ’I’m so proud of you,’ ” Kelly explained.
Even though “Dirty Laundry” tells listeners of the story of Kelly’s envy with Beyoncé’s solo success, Rowland has come far past that point, explaining, “What matters to me most right now is what we have. I love her and Michelle more than anything. They mean the world to me. I’m so grateful for what we have as sister away from Destiny’s Child.”
All the love and sisterhood can be heard on Kelly’s latest song “You’ve Changed,” which features none other than Beyoncé and Michelle. With a sound that mimics some of the slow jams right off 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, the ladies reunite once again to shed the pain caused by relationships gone sour. It’s the latest track to surface from her new album Talk a Good Game, which is scheduled to drop June 18.
Until then, Rowland is staying busy on tour and at the “X Factor” judging panel alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio. Due to her judging duties, the singer had to adjust some tour dates for her “Lights Out” co-headlining trek with The-Dream. Rowland and the mega-producer are scheduled for shows in New York City, Philadelphia and Mashantucket, Connecticut, in the next week.
