Rocking his bejeweled Phantom of the Opera mask, R. Kelly performed a medley of Black Panties songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (December 4). He quickly tore through ”Genius,” You Deserve Better” and “My Story,” with some help from 2 Chainz on the latter. But the best part, obviously, is that Kells recreated the cover of his album (which is out December 10), with a woman sitting on his lap and Kelly “playing” her like a violin.
Check out the performance up top, and then watch his interview with the host below, where he talks about the inspiration behind the album’s title, the next installments of “Trapped In The Closet” and his plans to bring it to Broadway.
