After two albums of romantic tracks, R. Kelly told Associated Press last year that he'd be returning to the explicit lyrics that first earned him acclaim and notoriety in the early '90s (and beyond). Good for you, Kells, but did it ever really go away? A careful, rigorous analysis of 234 of the singer's tracks, starting with 1992's Born into the '90s through last year's Write Me Back, proves a consistently lascivious mind. As the singer preps for the November 11 release of his 12th album Black Panties, here are our 69 favorites, starting with Kells' admiration for his girl's hips and ending with...
