R&B legend R. Kelly continued the promotional blitz for his upcoming new album, Black Panties, with a live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Dec. 4) assisted by rapper 2 Chainz.

Kelly set the stage by reproducing the lascivious Black Panties cover art in real-time with a model on his lap that he stroked with a violin bow. He performed — sporting the same bedazzled Phantom of the Opera-styled mask from the cover – a medley of new songs, beginning with “Genius,” which segued into the first live performance of “My Story,” featuring 2 Chainz, who stuck around to hype the crowd during “You Deserve Better.”

After the show taping, excited fans — decked out in Black Panties promo t-shirts — were treated to what amounted to a scaled down version of an R. Kelly concert, with the star blazing through a cavalcade of hits including “Ignition (Remix),” “Your Body’s Callin’” and “Step in the Name of Love.”

Black Panties drops on Dec. 10 and can be pre-ordered on R. Kelly’s website, which is offering a special CD bundle that includes actual black panties.
