2013 was the year R. Kelly broke through to the music-festival circuit and celebrated the 20th anniversary of his landmark debut 12 Play, so it only makes sense that it’s also the year he’ll release his nastiest album in years. Next week, Kelly will give us Black Panties, his beautifully crafted, deeply horny new LP. You probably already know if an R. Kelly song called “Marry The Pussy” is a thing you’re interested in hearing, so just be advised that almost the entire album is like that. (“Cookie,” for instance, is not about baked goods.) Stream the album below.
Black Panties is out 12/10 on RCA.
