Veteran R&B crooner Brian McKnight, whose melodious songs often spoke about tender and loving moments, has broken his predictable mold by previewing a sexually explicit adult mix tape that has listeners mouths gaping open, reports Billboard.
On Monday, McKnight posted a clip of the racy song on YouTube, entitled “If You’re Ready to Learn,” and many of his more prudish fans voiced their disapproval of it on his Twitter account.

McKnight gives his fans an explanation as to why he decided to venture on this new the X-rated musical journey in the YouTube video. “There’s lots of conversations I’ve had with men, lots of conversation I’ve had with women, just about other sexual type things that I’d like to tackle,” he said. “So I’m in the middle of writing that song and I’m gonna give you a preview.”
McKnight then begins to sing the dirty ditty which goes a little something like this:
“Let me show you how your p***y works, since you didn’t bring it to me first. I have lots of things to show you if you’re ready to learn. Let me show you how your p***y works, bet you didn’t know that it could squirt. I have lots of things to show you if you’re ready to learn.”
The backlash that McKnight received actually prompted him to take the viral clip off YouTube but the move was too late; folks had already managed to spread it around like wildfire across the internet. McKnight responded to his critical fans on Twitter:
I’ll let u all decide should I put it back up or not some of u have said some awfully hateful things
funny how most of these folks have never been on my timeline when i wrote safe songs hmmmmm one sex filled song and im trending lol
I wrote this song crude as it may be about satisfying all women and look what happened
It’s funny how we listen and let our kids listen to songs about killing people and selling drugs and calling women bitches
Maybe this latest body of work, if released, will surpass McKnight’s last album, “Just Me,” which only sold 47,000 since its debut last July.
