This past weekend in Atlanta, R. Kelly had an listening session for his upcoming album Black Panties. The singer-songwriter said about the album,
If you can take tragedy and turn it into triumph, that’s when you’ve reached the zenith of a true champion. Don’t mean to be too deep but this shit is real. I didn’t run under a rock and go over here or there. I stayed focused. And I’m more focused than ever.”
“My story is all of this: sex, money, broke, women, clubs, and even church. It’s all of those things mixed up into one. I’m not afraid of it, I understand it is the nature of life. This gift I have is a beautiful disease and I’m glad I got it.”
Black Panties will be in stores and online November 11th.
