What you see is what you get with R. Kelly's first unabashedly down'n'dirty album after a pair of retro-tinted critics' favorites, 2010's Love Letter and 2012's Write Me Back. When the Chicago R&B great releases Black Panties via RCA on December 10, a deluxe pre-order package will arrive with, obviously, a set of black panties. Kellz has already shared exquisitely horny "Genius," literal-minded oral sex serenade "Cookie," and 2 Chainz-helped hip-hop Horatio Alger tale "My Story." Now hear the full album below, including tracks with Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, and Jeezy, and reflect on the R.'s year, which spanned from joining Phoenix onstage at Coachella to engaging in various provocative TV performances with Lady Gaga — even collaborating with Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber (not at the same time).
