R. Kelly's new album, Black Panties, is available for streaming online on itemvn ahead of its official release on Dec. 10.
The album features songs like Marry the P---y, Show Ya P---y, Every Position, and Crazy Sex, suggesting that the R&B singer may have been inspired by all that ensues in a bedroom.
The first single released off the album was My Story, which focuses on Kelly's public image and the struggles and trials on his way to success and fame.
In a recent interview with Boombox the singer spoke about the new album and his sexual image as an artist. Kelly suggested that the title of the album and the titular song was inspired by a pair of underwear that a fan at one of his Love Letter shows flung onstage. They landed on the singer's wrist.
"Immediately I had an idea to write a song called Black Panties because it was a pair of black panties, lace-like. When I got back home, I wrote [the] song and then I just decided to do a whole album called 'Black Panties.' I never steered away from the name," he said.
Kelly worked with 2 Chainz, Future, Young Jeezy, Twista, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys and Ludacris for the album. But only Ludacris, 2 Chainz, Kelly Rowland and Young Jeezy made the final cut for the standard version of the album. Future, B.o.b,Twista and Juicy J made the deluxe version of the album.
