On the heels of a monumental, sweaty performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival, R. Kelly has let loose “My Story”, the 2 Chainz-aided lead single to his twelfth studio album, Black Panties.

A return to his forceful sing-rap style after the ballad-heavy Write Me Back, Kelly recounts his rags-to-riches rise to the R&B elite (“20 years/What’s that like five careers?/I’m just nappy-headed nigga from the Chi/I ain’t even supposed to be here”) over drum machine clatter and a guitar loop. Listen in below.

Black Panties is due out later this year. Stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, revisit our recent discussion on Kelly’s 2012 autobiography Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me as part of the Aux.Out. Book Club.
