Kelly Rowland Releases Break-Up Anthem
Kelly Rowland’s break-up anthem, “Gone,” is here.
Featuring Wiz Khalifa, “Gone” uses a sample from Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” (which you might also know from that Counting Crows / Vanessa Carlton cover) and finds Rowland disposing of an ex: “There’s a million ways that I could tell you / but I think I would rather show you that it’s over / and I won’t be back no more.” Later in the track, Rowland plugs Burger King while offering a withering kiss-off. (“Your dinner’s waiting down the street / and you can have it your way.”)
Rowland talked about the personal nature of her new album, “Talk a Good Game,” with Rolling Stone.
“You know what? No, I really don’t give a shit [about what exes think],” she said. “It’s nothing like that. My mom would say, ‘The truth shall set you free,’ so no matter what truth that is, I think it’s important to be honest about it.”
