R. Kelly - Genius

Posted about 3 years ago
Producer:
R. Kelly
Album:

According to some theorists, there exist not one but many intelligences, each governing a different set of talents and aptitudes. For example, in addition to excelling musically, R. Kelly would undoubtedly receive high marks in the kinesthetic and interpersonal arenas—hence his virtuosic abilities between the sheets. On the lead single off his next full-length, coming on the heels of hit promo cut My Story, the R&B icon lets a new woman know just how high he towers over the average man on the erotic IQ scale: “I’m blessed with the insight to please your body / Girl, tonight you’re lying with a sex Genius.” Kells’ characteristically impressive vocal performance comes backed by a sensual, self-produced synth beat. How about it, readers: does R. Kelly deserve a membership in Sex Mensa for creating this brainy bedroom burner? If you’re leaning toward the affirmative, then keep it locked to the Booth for further singles leading up to the November 1, release of his next album, Black Panties.
