R. Kelly performed before an audience of 100 fiery women at HelloBeautiful’s inaugural “Press Play” held at new Harlem, NYC hotspot, The Park 112. The original panty dropper debuted his recently released album “Black Panties,” but we got a exclusive listen first!

It was a night were panties may or may not have been thrown–I’m sworn to secrecy! But that doesn’t mean you cannot relive some of marvelous moments.

R. Kelly debuted his new song “Shut Up” and came for some of the younger crooners (read what he had to say about Trey Songz here: http://bit.ly/JnAAIW!) In the new track he sang: “Now seriously, after all these hits and melodies/and memories you compare me to someone else! OMG!/no offence to the other artists, but come one dawg, let’s be honest, how many babies have been made of me?”
True!
