R. Kelly Reveals Cover Art for ‘Black Panties’ Album
R. Kelly is ready to perform his symphony of love. The R&B mack revealed the album cover of his new album, 'Black Panties.' The collection is the follow-up to his 2012 effort, 'Write Me Up.'
On the standard edition’s provocative artwork, Kells is wearing a mask and holding a fiddle with a half-naked woman sitting on his lap. It seems to suggest that the Chicago native knows how to handle a woman and can play her like an instrument.
On the deluxe edition, R. Kelly is lying on the ground covered in beautiful half-naked women. This cover suggests that Kells doesn’t like sleeping alone. We jest, of course.
The Grammy-winning singer told Fuse TV that 'Black Panties' is a throwback to his old-school days when he was ruling the music game with his ’12 Play' album.
"I’m on a 'Benjamin Button'-type of mission right now," he says. "I’m going back to the old school R. Kelly days where he did the ’12 Play,’ the sexual songs mixed with the hip-hop songs."
'Black Panties' will arrive in stores Dec. 10.
