R Kelly names his new album 'Black Panties'

We love R Kelly: not only did his warped mind produce the magnificently mental 'Trapped In The Closet', he also made the greatest weekend slow jam of all time: the 'Ignition' Remix, which contains the finest double-entendre in the history of pop music – 'I'm about to take my key, and stick it in the ignition. Ye, so he has a somewhat spotty record with young girls, but musically he is peerless.

Anyway, with that defence for statutory rape out of the way, now's the time to take a little trip into his new project, which he has decided to give the subtle title of 'Black Panties'. We wonder what the subject of that record will be about? The man himself has said he'll be returning to the R&B roots of his debut album 12 Play, which apparently means more corking tunes like 'Bump And Grind' – hooray!

'I just did the whole Love Letter joint and everybody's thinking, 'That's the direction he's going now',' he told American radio station WCGI. 'No, that was just a moment in time, just like 'Ignition' and 'Bump N' Grind'. Now this Black Panties is the new 12 Play.'
