Veteran R&B star Brian McKnight, best known for tender love songs like "Back at One" and "Anytime," is raising eyebrows with an explicit new song he previewed in a viral video posted on Monday (Apr. 23). The clip finds McKnight in the recording studio, offering a taste of a new "adult mixtape" with the filthy jam "If You're Ready To Learn."
In the clip, McKnight plays both a stripped-down and produced version of "If You're Ready To Learn," which operates in the same soulful style as his standard fare but contains choice lines like, "Let me show you your your p---y works/Since you didn't bring it to me first." "Most people only want to hear me do one kind of song," McKnight tells the camera to introduce the track, "but there's been lots of conversations I've had with men, lots of conversations I've had with women, just about other 'sexual type things' that I'd like to tackle."
