R. Kelly Reveals New Album Title, Single

R. Kelly

R. Kelly is taking it back to the bedroom on his next album. The Pied Piper has renamed the sequel to 12 Play.

During an interview with WGCI Chicago’s “Tony Sculfield & The Morning Riot” radio show, Kellz announced that Black Panties would be the title of his 11th studio album. “I’m on Mission Benjamin Button right now, I’ma turn back time,” he said. “I just did the whole Love Letter joint and everybody thinking, ‘Well, that’s the direction he going now.’ No, that was a moment in time. Now this Black Panties album…”

He went on to call the album “the new 12 Play” and revealed that the first single will be titled “10 Minutes.”

The project has gone through two different name changes, including Zodiac and most recently The Return of 12 Play: Night of the Living Dead. “I think it’ll be an R&B-like thriller album, if you will,” he previously told Interview magazine.

Kellz also spoke about his recent trip to Africa and which young R&B stars he sees as his successors.

    R. Kelly is a has-been and a child rapist.

    @Thomas, You’re a nobody and a rapist, dumba**.

    @Thomas, Has-beens don’t sell-out shows, earn hits and sell consistently like R. Kelly.

    R. Kelly is a timeless international R&B superstar.

    As for the “rapist” comment – grow some balls, sir. Better yet get a f–king job and stop namecalling people you don’t even know.

    @ Thomas, i guess ds words are enuf 4 u,yea go get job man.

    @Thomas, See that’s the type of sh*t I’m talking about. That ‘rapist’ stuff is old. This world is going down cuz y’all can’t let go of anything. They did it to Michael, R. Kelly and now they doing it to Chris. Keep running talent away and watch where we end up. If u think mainstream is bad, just wait and see how it’ll be if u take everything these celebs do wrong personally. Especially when it’s not even about u.
