The "R" is bzack!  Despite all of the bankruptcy rumors, R Kelly has been hard at work in the studio creating new songs for his come back album "Black Panties".  Rightfully so, he needs some money honey!


R Kelly's 12 studio album is titled "Black Panties".  R Kelly has never lyrically held back his sexual side in his music or personal life for that matter.  He says the name is a bit of an ode to "public sex & strip clubs". Okay R, that's what got you into trouble before!

The album's release date, which was originally set for this past Tuesday November 11th has been pushed back until December 10th as he & his label RCA Records, put some last minute touches on it.

The first single featuring 2 Chainz "My Story" is currently in rotation here at HOT 99.1 and doing very well on the charts.  He has other big name collaborations on the album as well like Lady Gaga, Ludacris & Bruno Mars.

R Kelly is a musical genius no doubt. The "Black Panties" album will make a perfect stocking stuffer when it drops on December 10th just two weeks before Christmas.
