While working on his follow-up to "Black Panties," appropriately titled "White Panties," R.Kelly is also recording a house music album.

"I'm working on a house album right now and I want y'all to know, it's coming," he told those in attendance at Chicago's 24th Annual Chosen Few Picnic Weekend.

"I feel like I can do anything when it comes to music because I am music, just like y'all."
