So, here it is folks! The exclusive sneak preview trailer to Kels’ new album “Black Panties.” (Yes, he’s baaack!) For those of you who weren’t Chicago savvy enough to appreciate “Love Letter”, Kels is back to his original greatness. It’s a return to the man who has provided the blueprint of R&B for over a decade now–and from the trailer, it has to be amazing.
In the video, R. discloses that the title of the album was inspired by a woman who threw a pair of black panties that landed on his head while he was singing “Your Body’s Callin’” on stage at a concert. He goes on to admit that he’s been inspired to reclaim the sound he invented. Best line in the trailer:
“To really get myself back in to the mode of R. Kelly, Kels, and in order for to do that I had to really listen and go to school in my studio by looking at what’s happening now, from rappers to singers, and what I’ve found by doing that, is they’ve really been studying me!”
