Kelly Rowland is coming clean about a few things on her new song, Dirty Laundry.

In her emotional new track Dirty Laundry, Rowland sings that it was hard to watch Beyoncé become a superstar while she remained in the background. Rowland, whose upcoming album is entitled Talk a Good Game, also admits she was in a abusive relationship. She claims her ex tried to turn her against her friends, especially Beyonce.

Rowland opens up about pursuing a solo career after Destiny’s Child and watching Beyoncé’s career take off while she was feeling discouraged.

Rowland sings, “When my sister was on stage, killin’ it like a motherfu**er/ I was enraged, feelin’ it like a motherfu**er/ Bird in a cage, you would never know what I was dealing with/ Went our separate ways, but I was happy she was killin’ it/ Bittersweet, she was up, I was down.”

Rowland also address a prior abusive relationship. She sings, “I was battered, he hit in a window like it was me until it shattered/ He pulled me out, he said, ‘Don’t nobody love you but me, not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not B.’”
