After he dropped a preview yesterday of his “If You’re ready To Learn” track, folks popped off about his new X-Rated direction. Check his response inside…
Yesterday, this video popped up on Youtube of “Back At One” singer Brian McKnight going a totally different direction with his music. The usually sweet and romantic soul singer said he wanted to try something new and give ladies more explicit words for their vajayjays. But in the preview of the new track, he still kept his usual melody.
Folks around the net sounded off about it–and they weren’t pleased. Brian responded today tweeting:
I was just having some fun and look what happened…it’s for all those women who keep getting disappointed by their partners period it was a parody about that
It’s funny how we listen and let our kids listen to songs about killing people and selling drugs and calling women bitches…I wrote this song crude as it may be about satisfying all women and look what happened…I’m not being defensive it’s just sad to think that one parody could wipe out 25 years of work
Well he does have a point, as this man’s talent is not at all in question. But hearing these lyrics coming from the man who we’re accustomed to hearing sweet romantic lullabys from….it was a bit jarring. That’s all. But it’s not anything we haven’t heard before–said in a worse way–in any given rap song that sounds like a dude is trying to literally attack our girlie bits with an AK47.
Brian does maintain he’s not switching his whole style to music like the X-rated song that’s featured, just maybe one song or mixtape. Meanwhile, R. Kelly is somewhere plotting his response as the king of X-rated sex crooning. Thoughts?
