Singer, songwriter, producer and sex genius.
These are the roles that R. Kelly prides himself on. The latter no less in his latest single, “Genius”. Upon hearing “My Story” was the first single off of the forthcoming Black Panties, I was concerned we’d have as confused and convoluted a record as Write Me Back. The truth is, the King of R&B reigns supreme with his latest effort and – if you’ll allow me to count my chickens – “Genius” proves it by a factor 10. It sounds like the future and it sounds like the past. It’s classic R. Kelly yet still hot enough for the radio.
