R. Kelly Sets ‘Black Panties’ Release Date

R. Kelly

Black Panties are flying onto shelves this November. R. Kelly has set a release date for his upcoming album.

The R&B veteran’s 12th album will arrive on Nov. 11, he announced during a listening session in Atlanta over the weekend (via Billboard).

“If you can take tragedy and turn it into triumph, that’s when you’ve reached the zenith of a true champion,” said Kellz. “Don’t mean to be too deep but this shit is real. I didn’t run under a rock and go over here or there. I stayed focused. And I’m more focused than ever.”

Black Panties marks the follow-up to his 2012 album Write Me Back. In July, he debuted the first single, “My Story,” featuring 2 Chainz.

“My story is all of this: sex, money, broke, women, clubs, and even church. It’s all of those things mixed up into one,” he explained. “I’m not afraid of it, I understand it is the nature of life. This gift I have is a beautiful disease and I’m glad I got it.”

    Don’t understand why “My Story (Feat. 2 Chainz) never made the Top 100 Billboards KMT

    @Nick, not enough promotion & weak video. That was the reciepe.

    @King, I havent heard him on radio in ages, and it sucks.

    I buy everything he puts out. Ciara, Chris Brown, R Kelly are the most major talents of today and they are constantly attacked by jealous satanic forces.

    I can not wait for this album to come out. Kells has always and will always be a legend in the game simply making music for the love of it. The King Of R&B and after 25 years in the game says a lot about this man when it comes to producing and writing for not only legends but for many artist we love today not only R&B artist but a lot more genres of music. I respect this mans work and may only God judge him when it comes to anything else. But he was blessed with a musical genius when it comes to singing live and making classic albums from the 90′s freaky albums to the classic albums which he paid tribute to Sam Cooke on his last two albums. Kells you will forever be The King Of R&B.
