Apparently the R&B godfather has subscribed to Kanye’s school of minimalism.
R. Kelly will release Black Panties on December 10, and we now have the cover art and tracklist. However, it appears that early singles ‘Tear It Up’, ‘Genius’, and ‘My Story’ have not made the final cut.
New songs with Jeezy, Ludacris, and Kelly Rowland are among the album’s eleven tracks, along with the predictably-cringeworthy ‘Cookies’. That is, unless this is an elaborate ruse by another R. Kelly impersonator.
Update: Turns out the literal black panties cover might not be legit. Instead, Kelly has gone with playing a woman like a violin (for the standard edition) and drowning in a sea of women (for the deluxe edition). The titular panties play a large role in both. [via]
