Kelly Rowland’s newest single created a buzz-fest Wednesday morning. The track “Dirty Laundry” released on the internet revealed some shocking details about her private life. The former Destiny’s Child member exposed the resentment over Beyonce’s success, whom she calls her sister.
The R&B singer also sat with Billboard to discuss the emotions behind recording for her fourth solo album.
I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it. I always hope that my music can inspire someone, the same way other artists inspire me. Dream said, ‘I want to write you a record so that people will know exactly who you are, underneath it all.’
The-Dream, who pushed Kelly in the studio told the magazine he wanted her to go outside her comfort zone. The two are set to tour during the summer which kicks off in Kansas City, May 24.
CHRIS BROWN ANNOUNCES NEXT SINGLE WITH RARE AALIYAH VOCALS
Chris Brown is making sure the memory of Aaliyah lives on — or at least we sure hope that’s the reason.
The R&B crooner announced Tuesday (May 14) at the BET Awards press conference that his next single would feat the late Aaliyah. Brown’s next single, “They Don’t Know” is said to include never-before-heard vocals from the singer who died in a plane crash in 2001.
The song, featured on Chris’ sixth album X which drops July 16, also has a video to go along with it. “I shot it in the ‘hood. I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block,” he told reporters regarding the video shoot out in LA this past weekend.
We also hear the talented and creative Brown was in on the editing of the video. Guess he has one up on rival, Drake, who also plans on using Aaliyah’s vocals in a posthumous album.
ROCK THE BELL FESTIVAL TO FEATURE OL’ DIRTY BASTARD & EAZY-E HOLOGRAMS
Everyone has been buzzing since the hologram of Tupac debuted at Coachella last year. While there were mixed reactions of the virtual recreation of the late rapper, more holograms have been put in the works. This time around Ol’ Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan and Eazy-E of N.W.A will take the stage at Rock the Bell. The families of both artist are seemingly excited and fully support the idea.
ODB’s mother was introduced to her son’s hologram and was amazed:
‘Last night was the first time I saw it, and to me, it was so wonderful to stand by him again,’ she told Rolling Stone. ‘I don’t know how I’m going to react — they’ll have to carry me off. But I think it’s amazing. I want to sing with it.’
Widow of Eazy-E, Tomica Wright, was also happy about her late husband being on stage again. And since the Coachella debut TLC also look forward to bringing Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes back. The Grammy Award winning group, set to perform live this summer after over a decade are thinking of bringing the virtual Left Eye with them.
The hologram is something we talked about and thought about years ago. Obviously timing is everything but we’re definitely talking about it.
