It’s great that Brian McKnight wants to share his new creative ideas for his upcoming “adult mixtape,” an idea that surfaced after chatting with his fans on Twitter. But we were not expecting the R&B veteran known for hits like “Anytime” and “Back at One” to, err, sing about showing a woman what to do with her vajayjay. (Hey, we’re giving you the PG-13 version.)
In case you’re wondering, this video is not safe for work (NSFW). What starts off with McKnight sitting at the piano in his studio expressing his desire to tackle certain sexual topics ends with a shocking snippet of a new song. “If You’re Ready to Learn,” jumps right into it with some rather vulgar lyrics. “Let me show you how your p**** works. Since you didn’t bring it to me first. I have lots of things to show you if you’re ready to learn.” No, god no. Don’t ruin McKnight for me…for forever.
Apparently there has been a lot of public opinion (read: criticism) about what he’s now calling a parody video. Over on the TheYBF.com, they’re reporting McKnight got wind of the chatter and took to Twitter to say this:
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
He has a point. Lighten up, people. Geeez. Of course it was a little weird to hear the 42-year-old musician I grew up listening to sing about women’s private parts. But it’s funny! In the office its been said,”this is going to become a karaoke anthem.” Bring on the “Let me show you how your…” karaoke nights. We’re so ready. Read more…
