R. Kelly is finally giving his fans what they’ve been waiting for: a release date for his 12th solo album, ‘Black Panties.’

During a listening party for the project in Atlanta over the weekend the Chicago native unveiled the date. ‘Back Panties’ will be released on Nov. 11.

In a video captured by Revolt, the singer talks about his story as he profusely sweats, all while holding a cigar in an Atlanta recording studio. “My story is all of this: sex, money, broke, women, clubs and even church. It’s all of those things mixed into one,” he shares.

The R&B creative elaborates further on the LP. “Some people are talented, some people are gifted. I would like to be known as one of the people who are gifted. I took my story and what I’ve been through and I channeled it,” Kells explains. “You can take tragedy and turn into triumph and that’s when you reached the zenith of a true champion.”

Earlier this summer, R. Kelly released the 2 Chainz-assisted track ‘My Story.‘ The single peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard R&B Songs chart.
