Benedict Cumberbatch Recites R. Kelly Lyrics

I, like any other sane person, enjoy a good R. Kelly song now and then. “Ignition (Remix)” is an absolute classic that should be on every “Best Song” list. If you don’t think so or don’t even know what I’m talking about, you need to get out because you obviously weren’t listening to the radio enough in 2003.

To be honest, it’s been a while since R. Kelly has been on the music scene so how can we ensure his upcoming album, Black Panties, will be an instant success? By making one of the internet’s most beloved celebrities read the lyrics to one of his songs, of course!

That’s exactly what actor Benedict Cumberbatch did on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. We may have to argue that Cumberbatch did a better job with R. Kels’ “Genius” than R. Kelly himself because damn, does The Hobbit star have a super hypnotizing, deep and silky voice.

Sigh.
