New Music: R. Kelly feat. Tinashe – ‘Let’s Be Real Now’

It’s a battle of the sexes between R. Kelly and Tinashe on their collaborative single “Let’s Be Real Now.”

The twinkling track, included on Kellz’s 13th studio album The Buffet, sees the pair taking turns blaming the other for the demise of a relationship.

“Now you want to blame me, say it’s my fault for your heartache and pain, shit / You created the storm, so don’t try to run, baby here come the rain,” says the Pied Piper. Tinashe claps back: “No disrespect to the time that we spent, but boy you must be trippin’ / You expect me to post up at home for you, but now the tables are flippin’.”

“Let’s Be Real Now” arrives in anticipation of The Buffet, releasing Dec. 11. In addition to Tinashe, the LP is set to include features from Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, Jhené Aiko, and more.
