R. Kelly Enlists 2 Chainz for New Single ‘My Story’

2 Chainz is everywhere—from his single “Feds Watching” to collaborations with Fall Out Boy, Jason Derulo, and Tinie Tempah. And now R&B icon R. Kelly has called on the in-demand rapper for his new single “My Story,” which is set to debut on Monday.

“Dropping my new song featuring @2chainz on Monday.. This is #MyStory.. and I’m sticking to it,” tweeted Kellz along with a photo of him smoking a cigar.

He debuted a snippet of the song during the BET Awards last month and has been working on his next album Black Panties, described as a sequel to his 1993 album 12 Play.

In the meantime, the Pied Piper has been playing summer festivals including Bonnaroo and the Pitchfork Music Festival, and made a surprise appearance during Phoenix’s set at Coachella.
