R. Kelly has revealed that his forthcoming eleventh studio album will be named Black Panties.
The veteran R&B crooner says Black Panties will return to the style that made him famous and featured on his debut solo album 12 Play.
Speaking about the sound of the new album, Kells told a Chicago radio station: “I just did the whole Love Letter joint and everybody thinking, ‘Oh that’s the direction he’s goin’ now’. Nah, that was a moment in time, just like Ignition and Bump n’ Grind, and all this stuff was a moment in time.”
He added: “Now this Black Panties album… it’s the new 12 Play.”
Black Panties will be released early next year.
