Brian McKnight had a reputation for being a smooth R&B crooner who could woo women with his voice and subtle gestures about love and romance. However, McKnight seems to be venturing into a domain of raunchiness that most of his fans aren’t used to hearing from him.

In a video posted on his Twitter page, McKnight previewed a new song called “If You’re Ready to Learn.” While playing the piano, McKnight sings the chorus, “Let me show you how your p—- works, since you didn’t bring it to me first.”

McKnight also says that the song will be featured on an adult-themed mixtape that he will be releasing soon. But is this just a desperate attempt by McKnight to become relevant again, or is he exploring creative ways to speak on adult themes through music?

After the jump, watch the video and decide for yourself:
