In case you’re without a clue, R. Kelly is from the Windy City of Chicago and he’s proud of it. So proud in fact that he’s lending studio time to a few upcoming artists from his hometown to promote his new album, Black Panties.
The remix to the LP’s first single is a midtempo potential smash with a suitable backdrop for a rapper to conduct their business.
Maybach Music artist, Rockie Fresh and Katie Got Bandz, the new princess of ratchet fit the bill just fine and they don’t squander the opportunity to let their presence be felt.
The Grammy Award-winning singer has been on a memorable press run to capitalize on his December 10 release date for his twelfth solo album. The media attention recently peaked with his appearance on SNL which featured the mysterious Lady Gaga. While performing the pop diva’s single, “Do What U Want” to two mimicked the art of lovemaking in a strictly PG-13 performance.
Black Panties’ artwork is no less the scandal. The standard album cover shows Kelly in a simulation of playing the cello with a half-nude woman on his lap. The deluxe edition features the “Genius” singer laying in a sea of women like the Black Hugh Hefner.
Listen to the below “My Story (Chicago Remix)” and click along to see the freaky artwork for Black Panties and the album’s tracklist.
