First things first: if you haven’t heard the song — an ode to hatin’ on Beyonce and being in a former abusive relationship with an unnamed individual — head here

Heard it? Great.

Kelly Rowland spoke on how difficult it was for her to record the track:

It was very emotional. It took me days to record. I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it. I always hope that my music can inspire someone, the same way other artists inspire me. Dream said, ‘I want to write you a record so that people will know exactly who you are, underneath it all.’

Naturally, folks are beginning to wonder who was the individual that was beating on beloved Kelly in the single…..initial reports began to speculate that her ex Roy Williams was the culprit. Not only did he stop that rumor in its tracks, he (perhaps unintentionally) led folks to another clue:


Cuda? Well, Madame Noire apparently knows who this is:

Cudda or Cudda Love, was Nelly’s manager/body guard back in the day…or maybe still today. (There’s not too much info on him right now.) But we suspect all that to change. This would make the most sense. Kelly mentioned that this relationship took place a decade ago. Which would have been around 2003, when she and Nelly recorded “Dilemma” and was subsequently spending a lot of time around Nelly and his crew.

Cam’ron recently posted an Instagram of the guy as well……time will tell if he speaks out on the matter or not:
