R. Kelly and Tinashe Make Nice on Stellar New Duet, ‘Let’s Be Real Now’

R. Kelly’s new record The Buffet — his Black Panties follow-up —hits shelves on Friday (via RCA), and today the R&B lothario teases its release with a new Tinashe duet, the album-closing “Let’s Be Real Now.” Unsurprisingly, the 22-year-old “2 On” singer walks away with the song’s crown, her voice arching and cooing over the drum-pounding melody. “I bet you feel dumb now / Bet you feel so dumb right now,” she sings with laughter echoing in the background before she hits high notes worthy of endless prayer-hands emojis. Hear the collab below.
