Damn, this is deep.
Despite announcing that she had to reschedule her “Lights Out” tour with The-Dream, Kelly Rowland upheld her performance duties for the first couple of stops on the tour, which included Washington, D.C.
After airing out her personal life on the controversial new single “Dirty Laundry,” it seems like the candid song still hits close to home for Kelly.
While performing the emotional track, Kelly Rowland had a moment where she began crying shortly after singing, “He turned me against my sister, I missed ya.”
Kelly’s band stopped playing as the “Kisses Down Low” singer wept uncontrollably on stage. Luckily, the overwhelming cheers from her fans prompted Kelly to continue on with the song.
Kelly stopped by one of D.C.’s premiere radio stations, 93.9 WKYS, where she explained why she broke down on stage.
“It’s really weird when you take yourself in front of a crowd. Even in that moment of when I put my feet up, I felt like I was in therapy. I was singing and talking about what happened, and for a moment, it was like that crowd wasn’t even there. And then when the music stopped…I was like “You are live Kel. Calm down.” And I had to calm down, and then I had to breathe. You get lost…and it’s nothing wrong with getting lost. But that was weird. I felt like I could do that with D.C. “
“Dirty Laundry” is off Kelly’s fourth studio album, Talk A Good Game, which is set to drop on June 18.
