The web is buzzing about the lyrics of Ms. Kelly Rowland’s new single, where she admits to being a victim of domestic violence and being jealous of Beyoncé.  We’re sure the song is a cathartic release of Rowland’s experience but it’s also very smart marketing ploy–tell the people what they want to hear.

Read the full lyrics below.

Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

When you’re soaked in tears for years it never airs out

When you make pain look this good it never wears out

This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

When my sister was on stage killin’ it like a M***

I was enraged, feelin’ it like a M***

Bird in a cage

You would never know what I was dealin’ with

Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin’ it

Bittersweet she was up, I was down

No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now?

Forget the records, off the record

I was going through some B**

Post-Survivor, she on fire

Who wanna hear my B**

Meanwhile this N** puttin’ his hands on me

Swear ya’ll don’t know the half of this industry

Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

When you’re soaked in tears for years it never airs out

When you make pain look this good it never wears out

This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

And it’s almost been a decade

I’m behind them black shades

Rollin’ up like it’s all good

Ridin’ up out that Escalade

Fix my makeup

Get it together, Kelly get it together

Then we make up

Well get it together, n** get it together

Kinda lucky I was in her shadow

Phone call from my sister, what’s the matter

She said, oh no baby you gotta leave

I’m on the kitchen floor

He took the keys

I was mad at everybody

I mean everybody; yeah her, her, her, her everybody

Five years later I got my shit down packed

Think I had it good and they don’t know how bad

Fooled everybody accept myself

Soaking in this hurt

Bathing in the dirt

Dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

When you’re soaked in tears for years it never airs out

When you make pain look this good it never wears out

Dirty laundry ..dry

So here I am in the spin cycle

We coming and we going

Nobody can notice

And I was trapped in his house

Lying to my momma

Thought it could get no worse

As we maximize the drama

Started to call them people on him

I was battered

He hittin’ the window like he was me until it shattered

He pulled me out

He said don’t nobody love you but me

Not your momma, not your daddy and especially not B

He turned me against my sister

I missed ya

Let’s do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

When you’re soaked in tears for years it never airs out

When you make pain look this good it never wears out

This dirty laundry, dirty laundry

Love is pain and pain is love

He had me f** up

Love is pain and pain is love

He had me f** up
