Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland released a new single this morning that's got everyone buzzing—and kind of bumming out!

OK! News: Drake released a song about Beyonce!

The slow groove of a song, "Dirty Laundry," airs just the kind of material the title suggests. She opens up about abuse in a previous relationship ("meanwhile this n*gga putting his hands on me") and her feelings about the success of her bandmate Beyonce ("kinda lucky I was in her shadow"), and then brings the two subjects together by saying her ex turned her against her old pal.

OK! News: Beyonce canceled a concert amidst rumors that she may be pregnant again!

The lyrics are shocking: She sings, "When my sister was on stage, killing it like a mother f*cker, I was feeling enraged, feeling like a mother f*cking bird in a cage." Then "Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killing it. Bittersweet, she was up, I was down. Normally I'd feel good for her but what do I do now?" She wonders, "She on fire, who want to hear my bullsh*t?"
