“When you don’t show up as who you really are, people fall in love with what you’re not.” We have never really known Kelly Rowland until NOW! Kelly’s decade long masquerading, reinventing, and deceiving have directly lead to the mediocre success solo endeavors has spawned. After Listening to ‘Dirty Laundry’, I’ve got a felling that we are now and forever about to experience the real Kelly Rowland.
I was so sick and tired of Kelly & Michelle not giving authentic answers in interviews when asked how they felt about Beyonce’s success. We all know that loosely translated, the question meant, “how do you feel about Beyonce’s solo success in relation to yours.” Kelly & Michelle would always give some pre-packaged answer like, “I’m am very happy for my sister. We are all strong secure women, yata yata yata.” Bullsh*t. Envy is a natural emotion. If any member of Destiny’s Child 1,2, and 3 didn’t feel some type of way about Beyonce’s mega success, they are not human. For a group of young women to start out from the bottom TOGETHER, and one out of the pack to matriculate into an icon, it is only human and expected for there to be some sour feelings.
Not hiding in the shadows of Beyonce, but blinded by the shadow of Kelly’s misery and lies lied the root of her mediocre success. Kelly Rowland finally gets it right! ‘Dirty Laundry’ is so much more than a single; it’s a rebirth, a shedding of dead weight. You go girl! Welcome to the world Kelly Rowland. Your time has come!
So let me start out by saying I don’t know who this Sevyn Streeter chick is, but after listening to her sing, she is definitely on my radar.

I’m telling you, Tamar has gotten the memo and is adhering to the policies and procedures. Mama has found her a lane and is riding the hell out of it. I am loving her second single ‘The One.’ The song is set to the 90′s classic ‘Juicy’ by The Notorious BIG, which is a sample of M’tume’s Juicy. True R&B seems to have been abandoned by the heavy hitters in the game right now. What I’m loving is that Tamar and her team found a void and she is filling it! Yes Gawd! Let me also point out that Lashawn Daniels who wrote Love & War also assisted in the writing of ‘The One.’ Check it out. Read the rest of this entry »
