R. Kelly Tells How He Worked With Robin Thicke On ‘Pregnant’

dropped his first album in two years, Untitled, and he’s still coming with those eyebrow-raising lyrics. “See I’m a player so man, I ain’t trying to take her on no dates/ But much like Patron man, I’m just trying to take it straight,” he sings on the album’s last track, “Pregnant.” “Until I met this girl in the club with a unbelievable booty/ Sweetest girl in the world to me, and on top of that she’s a cutie/ If I had a girl, she’d be the one to bare my child.” Tyrese, Robin Thicke and The-Dream are all featured on the song. “The track came to me from Tyrese, my little brother,” Kelly said. “Immediately I loved it so much, I went into the studio right away and I put the track up. [I] began to write, ‘Girl, you make me wanna get you pregnant.’ It felt good immediately. I wanted to send the hook back to him. I knew he’d love the hook. But I said, ‘Nah, let me do a verse.’ I start hearing the verse. I said, ‘I’m gonna do the hook and verse.’ ”

Kells had a self-imposed 20-minute time limit to write and record his part for the record, and said he finished in just about 22 minutes. He then e-mailed Tyrese, who was in a separate studio, what he’d just done. “They was in the studio snappin’! I think Chris Brown was in the studio,” he continued. “I heard them snapping on the phone. Tyrese said, ‘Hey cuz, write your cuz a verse.’ We started laughing. I was kinda hating because I thought I wrote his verse better than I wrote mine — but it’s all good. That’s my boy. I sent it to him, he did his verse. I started saying, ‘Man, I can make this the new “Secret Garden.”‘ I wrote a verse for Robin Thicke, sent it to him — he loved it, did it. Dream is a hell of a writer, so I didn’t want to even get into writing Dream’s verse. I wanted Dream to be Dream. Got [the track] to Tyrese, Tyrese got it to Dream. It all came off.”
