R. Kelly crafted a summer anthem with “Backyard Party,” a breezy funk song about cookouts, backyards, and friends. Now he keeps the summer vibes coming with the video, which takes place in Kelly’s luxurious mansion in Chicago. Kellz, rocking his Bulls attire, kicks back by the pool with hordes of women, enjoying rides in golf carts, card games, and plenty of barbecue, while Snoop Dogg and Chance the Rapper make cameos.
Kellz also previews “Marching Band,” one of 462 songs he recorded for his upcoming album The Buffet, which is set to drop Nov. 20.
“I’ve always wanted to do different types of music and different characters, and this album gave me the chance to do that,” Kelly told EW. “I absolutely think that the audience is expecting the sexual R. Kelly, the steppin’ R. Kelly, maybe a bit of the ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ R. Kelly. They’ve been spoiled for twenty-something years. I don’t want fans mad at me, so I gotta give them what they expect and what they want.”
Sit back and unwind with Kellz and friends.
