Kelly Rowland Reveals The Truth Behind Destiny’s Child’s “Girl,” And Her Abusive Relationship

5a91d4141192bb7fd8f80f4a7252ee8d Kelly Rowland Reveals The Truth Behind Destiny’s Child’s “Girl,” And Her Abusive Relationship

“Take a minute, girl – come sit down, tell us what’s been happening,” coos Beyonce on “Girl”. (You know, that slightly sappy Destiny’s Child song with the dubious Sex and the City-inspired video from 2005?) It turns out the emotional anthem was a plea from Kelly Rowland‘s former-bandmates to escape the abusive relationship she details so honestly on current single “Dirty Laundry.”

In an interview with Philly’s Hot 107.9 Morning Show, Kelly revealed: “I don’t know how people connect dots with music and artists that they have followed for so long but when I saw people on Twitter starting to put all the pieces together, it was so interesting. They did it with “Girl”, they did it with “Bad Habit”… I was like ok! Crazy!”

When asked if she got emotional on hearing the 9th Wonder-produced ballad for the first time, the future X Factor judge replied: “Of course, I did! The girls [Beyonce and Michelle Williams] wrote it for me. Destiny’s Child is deeper than what people see on the surface. Those are my homies for life. For life! Those girls we stuck with each other – period.”

Rowland’s revelation certainly adds another dimension to the number 23 hit. And explains why the song was selected as a single ahead of stellar Destiny Fulfilled cuts like “Through With Love” and “Free”.
