RnB crooner R. Kellyjust wont stop, just when we thought he was done and hang his gloves he bounces back with an album. Kels is set to release his 12th album, Black Panties, on Dec. 10.
The "closet" singer has featured a couple of bigwigs in his new project including Kelly Rowland, Jeezy, Ludacris and 2 Chainz. Future, Migos and Juicy J make the LP's deluxe edition.
According to Vibe Magazine, Black Panties was inspired by a swarm of panties being thrown at R. Kelly during a concert. "I was on stage doing my Love Letter tour and I broke down into "Seems Like You're Ready," Kelly told VIBE. "So I start singing (the line) "Temperatures rising" and here come the panties.
It was all different colors but then this one particular pair of panties—they were black and medium—landed on my mic and my wrist, and immediately I said, that's a sign. I gotta go back and write a song called 'Black Panties.'"
The album is said to be a return to early R. Kelly and his crooning on his debut 12 Play. A stream of the LP is available via itemvn below.
