R. Kelly returns with a new single, 'My Story,' featuring rapper 2 Chainz.

'My Story' will appear on the singer's 12th studio album, 'Black Panties.' Kellz boasts about how he made it to the top. “Twenty years, what’s that like five careers? / I’m just a nappy-headed n---- from the Chi / I ain’t even supposed to be here," he sings.

The crooner spoke to Vibe about the tart honesty he's showcasing on his new album. “I’m not afraid to say I’m wrong, too,” Kelly shares. “If I hadn’t been through it then it’s not fair for me to talk about it. That would mean that I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about. If I’m going to write about a touchy subject like [cheating] and it affects a relationship, whether it’s breaking them up or making them up, I have to know what I’m talking about. My research is myself.”

'Black Panties' will be released later this year.
