R. Kelly Featuring 2 Chainz “My Story”
As promised, the legendary R. Kelly is back today with his new single “My Story,” from his forthcoming Black Panties album. With a guest verse from Chainz and a name like “My Story,” it was hard to guess what this would sound like, but it’s safe to say no one saw a syrupy swag anthem like this one coming. On it, Kells takes a few minutes to reaffirm his place at the top of the R&B world over a sparse guitar riff, and Chainz stops by for a reference-heavy (he shouts out 12 Play and Chocolate Factory in the same couplet) verse about sex and money, two things he’s great at rapping about. The tune also sounds a lot like some of The-Dream’s—an outspoken fan of Kells’—recent work, but with “My Story,” the R takes Terius’ formula of sing-rapping lines like “They asked him in an interview why do he love these girls … The only thing he had to say was ‘Motherfuck the world'” in earnest, and murders it.
