Remember Sparkle? She exploded back on the scene as R. Kelly’s protege back in 1998 and released a self-titled album under his Rockland Record label. She also had a #1 hit on the Billboard charts with her single “Be Careful” featuring R. Kelly, however, her family got caught up in his sex tape scandal and she fell off the map.

A few months ago, R. Kelly remixed Kelly Rowland’s “Dirty Laundry” and instead of cleaning out his closet and talking about his highly-publicized case where he was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old, he used the verses to put his R&B counterparts on blast.  Sparkle, in the meantime, has decided to put out her own remix to the track to tell her side of what went down.

On the record, she sings “Let me help you with this laundry” as she details having to take the stand as a key witness in the trial because the girl was her niece. She sings:

“I regret the day I put my family in my business / A tape, a trial, and guess who’s a star witness.”

She also took a subtle jab at Wendy Williams on the track, who at the time of the trial accused Sparkle of getting an under the table cash settlement from R. Kelly’s people and keeping her mouth shut when she got paid.

A few more lyrics:

My story cuts a little bit deeper

Around the time Sparkle was coming through your speakers

A year before just [brought] up Aaliyah

And at the time no other label could see us

That’s the time when s–t went wrong

And that’s the reason why I’m remixing this song

Although the blurry sex tape (including a scene where R. Kelly allegedly peed on the minor) was shown in court, R. Kelly was eventually acquitted on the charges because the teenager would not testify against him which was a huge handicap for the prosecution.

Like Sparkle and Kelly Rowland says, “I swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry!”
