R. Kelly Promises His Next Album Will Return to Insane Songs About Sex

+

If you’re someone who follows R. Kelly’s career (and gee I really hope you are) you’ve probably noticed that his last two reasonably well-received albums stuck closer to a classic singer/songwriter mode, and thus were noticeably lacking in songs that, for instance, relied entirely on an extended analogy between a woman’s body and a theme park. Well, don’t worry; the man who was seemingly in possession of an endless supply of innuendo hasn’t run out yet; Kelly spoke to Yahoo and assured us that the dude who extolled the merits of sex “by the butter rolls” hasn’t changed: “Make no mistake about it, R. Kelly is not going anywhere, it’s just that R. Kelly has such a unique talent, and I’ve been blessed to be able to do all type of genres of music … I’m exploring my gift right now.” Later on Kelly stated, “The name of my next album is Black Panties — that’s my next ‘12 Play. I’m going to have some fun on it.” Well that’s a relief. Anyone who’s listened to Love Letter knows that R. Kelly the timeless romantic is kind of breath of fresh air, but the Kellz we all fell in love with is the one who was just trying to go half on a baby.
