New Music: R. Kelly Feat. 2 Chainz – “My Story”

R. Kelly 2 Chainz

R. Kelly has teamed up with 2 Chainz in his new track “My Story.” The track is the first single on his rumored autobiographical album Black Panties. With typical R. Kelly fashion, “My Story” leaves listeners feeling like they know Kelly slightly more than they’d like too. Notorious for lyrically over sharing, Kelly touches on his hard knock life story and journey to becoming the Prince of Pillowtalk.” With lyrics that are nothing short of humble, Kelly has crafted a track that feels more like a memoir of an average day in the life of R. Kelly. 2 Chainz’ appearance is a nice addition and gives Kelly’s work a fresh sound and feel. For the proclaimed “King of R&B,” the track is much heavier on the hip-hop side compared to his “Trapped in the Closet” and “I Believe I Can Fly,” days. Being his first single of 2013, Kelly lets listeners know he is definitely back in the game with a bang. Black Panties is scheduled for later this year.
