For weeks there have been rumors circulating that R. Kelly would be joining Mr. West on a remix to Kanye’s new single, Flashing Lights. Well, the rumors are true, sort of. Instead of actually jumping in the studio together, say in their shared hometown of Chicago, R. Kells merely scooped up the track and laid some new (crazy) vocals over the top. Call it a remix if you’d like, but the reality of this studio-manufactured unofficial release is that it provides a platform for the trial-bound R. Kelly to once again brag about his sex appeal, wealth, and superhuman talents. West plans to release the video to Flashing Lights, which was shot prior to his mother’s passing, before the end of the month.
