R. Kelly's Black Panties
R. Kelly has described his upcoming album, 'Black Panties', as an 'R&B-like thriller album' similar to his 90's albums rather than his last 'Love Letter' album.
Kelly said: "I'm on Mission Benjamin Button right now, I'ma turn back time. I just did the whole 'Love Letter' joint and everybody thinking, `Well, that's the direction he going now.' No, that was a moment in time. Now this 'Black Panties' album, I think it'll be an R&B-like thriller album, if you will."
Kelly is recovering well from emergency throat surgery which he underwent in July to drain an abscess on one of his tonsils.
