R. Kelly reaches a new level of NSFW with “Cookie.” Kelly’s video for the track dropped today along with his latest album Black Panties. Mr. Kelly pulls a Hugh Hefner and spends most of the video in a mansion surrounded by women scantily clad as French maids.
Even with such an explicit repertoire, R. Kelly’s creative method in the studio and on set is pretty sound. “I got visions,” Kellz says in a behind-the-scenes look at the Cookie music video. “When I’m doing the songs in the studio, I’m actually doing them to the video that I’m seeing in my head. So when I get on set, I don’t wanna lose that magic – I wanna bring that magic to the set.”
Watch “Cookie” above or get your hands on R. Kelly’s Black Panties, out today via RCA Records.
