R. Kelly‘s Black Panties will soundtrack a million one-night stands starting December 10. That’s the goal at least. From the eye-popping covers (there are two) to the steamy tracklist, the R&B crooner makes it very clear that he’s only interested in one thing. (And it isn’t your personality).
Let’s start with the artwork. The deluxe version finds Lady Gaga‘s duet partner surrounded by a sea of writhing ladies wearing, you guessed it, black panties. The standard cover is even more icky with the veteran playing a semi-naked woman like a violin.
As for the music, the titles suggest R. Kelly has recorded a collection of tunes equally suited to the strip club or bedroom. Something tells me “Legs Shake” is probably not about cramps, while “Throw Money On You” might not address the singer’s charity work. (I remain hopeful though).
Kelly Rowland guests on “All The Way”, while the 46-year-old goes solo on “Crazy Sex” and “Poetic Sex”. Where’s the romance? Never fear. There’s a (sure-to-be) heartwarming ditty called “Marry The Pussy”, which will no doubt be played at weddings for years to come. Check out the full tracklist and standard album cover after the jump.
