R. Kelly is getting ready for the December 10th release of his next stuido album Black Panties, and today we get the Chicago remix to his 1st single "My Story" featuring Katie Got Bandz and Rockie Fresh.
The R. Kelly feature gives Bieber the post here as the two sing one for the bedroom. Kellz does, as you may predict, a phenomenal job including a very R. Kelly-esque lyric involving "forensics". I can't listen to Bieber singing about sex though so this is a one and done listen for me. Enjoy?!
Bruno Mars is joined by a superstar cast for the official remix to "Gorilla" as Pharrell first lends a fresh verse before R. Kelly lends some high notes post-2 minute mark. I rock with this. As you might too.
R. Kelly continues his promo for the upcoming album, Black Panties, with part 1 of a mini-documentary series that captures the making of the album. We follow Kellz along to some radio interviews and into the studio to hear how the album is coming along. He also hilariously tells the story of why the album is called Black Panties. Ha! Watch above and keep your eyes peeled for part 2 surely soon to follow before the album drops December 10th.
Gaga links up with Chi-Town for her new single off ARTPOP. Her usual producer partner-in-crime DJ White Shadow is one of the Chicagoans — the other is R&B legend R. Kelly!
You may recognize this from the preview in the Beats by Dre x Best Buy x John Wall Dougie commercial this past Thursday. Now the full version hits late tonite and is a feel-good record that I think the casual fan will enjoy. Kellz' analogies in his verse are fun too (although I coulda done without the Tom Ford mention). I'll rock with this. What do you all think?
John Wall dougies to the new Lady Gaga x R. Kelly collab in this Beats by Dre x Best Buy commercial
This commercial quite possibly has it all.
A preview of the new Lady Gaga x R. Kelly collab "Do What U Want" off the upcoming album, ARTPOP (that sounds great so far, specifically how Kellz comes in) and John Wall doing his famous dougie whilst rockin' the Beats. Then a Jason Biggs look-a-like does the white version of the dougie to Wall's disapproval. I can watch this again.
"Cookie" is already establishing itself as one of the kinkiest new tracks off R. Kelly's upcoming album, Black Panties. This one's for anyone looking for a vintage Kellz bedroom theme. Give it a listen, it only gets better as it goes.
Yesterday, Vulture obtained a grocery list from R. Kelly's home, stealthly captured by a visitor who we'd like to thank for his/her skill and presence of mind while in the Kellz residence. Alas, here's the list:
Of the notable items: Go Gurts, brand specific lemonade and sausage links, oh yeah... Dino shaped Chicken Nuggets leading the list, uncut lettuce (so he can presumably cut it himself), 3 bananas (no more, no less), 2 kinds of cookie dough, and 2 Pizza Lunchables and 2 Bologna Lunchables.
Are you sitting down now? OK, my first reaction was, wow. Now I feel amazing that I'm not the only adult who still eats Lunchables, mind you the two best ones in Pizza and Bologna. Respect, Kellz.
It's been a helluva 24 hours in music to kick off the week. By now you've undoubtedly heard Nothing Was The Same one or one hundred times, but here's a quick rundown of some other big-name tracks that dropped ICYMI.
