R. Kelly Plays a Woman Like a Violin, Brings Out 2 Chainz on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

R. Kelly is as raunchy and blunt as they come when it comes to sexual lyricism, especially on ‘Black Panties.’ So it’s not all surprising that he provided a literal interpretation of the standard edition of his album cover on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ last night (Dec. 5) — the FCC would’ve been livid if it was the deluxe edition interpretation.

The singer started his set with ‘Genius,’ in which he was seated while using a woman like a violin. Kelly then segued into ‘My Story,’ a performance that brought 2 Chainz onstage for his verse. Another highlight of the show was when the crooner moves closer to the crowd and took an audience member’s phone for what may be one of the best selfies ever. He closed out the performance with ‘You Deserve Better.’

‘Black Panties’ officially drops on Dec. 10, but it’s currently available for streaming. IFC has a treat before the release date though. The channel is running a marathon of all 33 chapters of ‘Trapped in the Closet’ on Saturday (Dec. 7) starting at 5:15PM.
