R. Kelly unveils NSFW video for 'Cookie' - watch
The track is taken from current album 'Black Panties', which was released last Friday (December 6)
The video for the single – the latest to be taken from current album ‘Black Panties’, which was released last Friday (December 6) – begins with a scantily clad young girl coming into Kelly’s mansion to begin work as one of his assistants, while another woman informs her that the rapper “will let [her] know” what he wants for dessert.
The video then goes on to show several women clad in their underwear gyrating around and fondling Kelly as he sits smoking cigars and pouring champagne. The song’s explicit and controversial lyrics also depict scenes of an overtly sexual nature as the 46-year-old singer talks about how he will “beat the pussy ‘til it’s blue” and “lick the middle like an Oreo”. The album’s artwork, meanwhile, features Kelly playing a nearly-naked woman like a cello.
Last month saw R. Kelly set up a ‘Black Panties hotline’ in order to promote the new album, whereby people would receive eight messages a month from the Chicago native. Calling the number 312-380-6596 gives callers the option to receive the messages, while people choosing not to opt in are then sent an automated text checking again if they want to subscribe and stating that, “consent is not required”.
‘Black Panties’ features guest spots from Kelly Rowland, 2 Chainz and Ludacris, and features tracks including ‘Marry The Pussy’, ‘Crazy Sex’ and ‘Shut Up’. Deluxe bundles of the album also come with a free pair of lace knickers.
