Kelly Rowland's song Dirty Laundry speaks specifically about Beyonce and now Mrs. Carter is helping promote her former Destiny's Child bandmate.

"We are one week away from Kelly's album release," Beyonce wrote on her website Tuesday. "Talk A Good Game 7 days away."

Rowland released the single from the album in May and the track discusses a complicated and toxic past relationship. It also references Beyonce several times.

Rowland sings: "Kind of lucky I was in her shadow. Phone call from sister, 'What's the matter?' She said, 'Oh no, baby, you got to leave. I'm on the kitchen floor, he took the keys. I was mad at everybody, I mean everybody. Yeah, her, everybody."

The song also talks about Beyonce's successes, with lyrics such as "Bittersweet, she was up, I was down. No lie, I feel good for her, but what do I do now?"

Despite being released as her single, the song wasn't so easy for Rowland to put together. She told Billboard in a May interview that the track took her a few days to complete.

"I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it," she said. "I always hope that my music can inspire someone, the same way other artists inspire me."

Rowland's fourth album will even feature a collaboation with Beyonce. The two recorded the song called You've Changed,  along with the third Destiny's Child member, Michelle Williams. Other collaborators include Pusha T and Wiz Khalifa.

Talk A Good Game, which will hit stores on June 18, is also considered Rowland's most personal record to date.

"This is the first album she's made where she's really put everything into it as an artist and a songwriter, even when it meant working with people she wasn't initially thinking about," Republic senior VP of A&R Wendy Goldstein told the magazine.

Some songs from the album have already leaked, including I Remember. Listen to the track here.
