Pop/R'n'B star Kelly Rowland is on her way to unveiling the music video of her much talked about single "Dirty Laundry". This is evident with the release of a 30-second teaser of the full version of the emotional track she tearfully performed live a few weeks ago during her "Lights Out Tour" kick-off show in Washington D.C.
The Sarah McColgan-directed short clip shows Rowland dining out with a guy who splashes red wine on her as he gets up to leave her. As she sings about an abusive relationship, images of her getting drenched in the rain and wallowing in a pool of water metaphorically portray the tears and pain it brings upon her life.
The teaser highlights Rowland's real-life ordeal of being abused by her lover, as revealed in the lyrics, "I was trapped in his house, lyin' to my mama / 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 it was me, until it shattered." It also went on to explain that it was her abusive man who turned her against her family and her Destiny's Child group mate Beyonce Knowles.
"Dirty Laundry", written by R'n'B/pop record producer The-Dream, is the first single off Rowland's forthcoming album "Talk a Good Game", which hit stores earlier this week.
