This past Tuesday, Mariah Carey released her highly-anticipated 11th studio album, E=MC². The album’s lead single, Touch My Body—as the whole world pretty much knows by now—reached #1 at Billboard and in turn, thrust the talented singer past Elvis for the most #1 singles of all-time. Though it is impossible to call anyone an equal to Mariah, especially in a wide open field of male R&B singers, Mr. R. Kelly comes pretty damn close. So, it is without further babbling that we bring you Kells’ freestyle rendition of Touch My Body. It’s the same beat by Tricky Stewart and the same Mariah ad libs in the background, but a whole new spin (that only R. Kelly could provide) on body touchin’.
