About Laundromat

"Laundromat" is a song by American singer Nivea for her eponymous debut album (2001). It was released on April 1, 2003, as the third single from the album. American singer-songwriter R. Kelly wrote and produced the track. It is an R&B and pop duet between Nivea and Kelly. The lyrics revolve around a laundromat as a metaphor for infidelity and the breakdown of a relationship. Critical response to "Laundromat" was primarily positive; several music critics praised its sound and composition while others were critical of Kelly's role as Nivea's duet partner given allegations that he had sexual relations with underage girls. Commercially, the recording peaked in the United States at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 20 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Billboard chart. Internationally, it reached a peak position of number 33 on the UK Singles Chart as a double A-side with "Don't Mess with My Man". In its accompanying music video, Nivea sings, dances, and does her laundry in a laundromat while accompanied by female back-up dancers. American actor Nick Cannon plays the part of Nivea's boyfriend, and lip-synchs Kelly's parts. In July 2013, American singer Solange Knowles performed a cover version of the song in a laundromat as a part of the "Make Boring Brilliant" campaign. Her performance received positive reviews from critics, who felt it was an appropriate song choice for the venue. Knowles said that she listened to the song while recording her third album A Seat at the Table (2016).
