Earlier today Kelly Rowland released a her brand new single Dirty Laundry off her upcoming album Talk A Good Game. which is set to be release on June 18th 2013 . On “Dirty Laundry” Kelly speaks on surviving an abusive relationship and admits her jealousy towards Beyonce.
“I was battered. He’s hitting the window like it was me /
And still it shattered. He pulled me out and said ‘Don’t nobody love you but me / Not your mama / Not your daddy / and especially not Bee.
“It was very emotional. It took me days to record, 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.’” Rowland tells Billboard.com

Azealia Banks - “Van Vogue”
Nina Simone - Revolution
The great Black liberation artist Nina Simone wrote this song in response to John Lennon’s pacifist “Revolution” single, performed by The Beatles. Lennon, in a more militant frame of mind a few years later, said he thought it was best reply to his lyric and embraced its message.
“I contextualize Beyonce as a dichotomy of grit and grace, two polarized representations of black femininity that only co-exist via performances of alter ego(s)… And, for the sake of this essay, I’d like to hone in on the understanding of ratchet as a southern export, one which frequents popular expression like hip hop. It in this regard that I posit Beyonce broaches a type of “sonic” ratchet in “Bow Down,” using sound to signify not only her southern “ruts” (roots) but utilize an aesthetic that allows her to vindicate her southern black womanhood while sustaining her (visual) global image.”
