Watch Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dramatic Reading of R. Kelly’s “Genius” Lyrics


Sherlock and Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch has taken one of R. Kelly‘s raunchiest sex songs to new heights. On Wednesday night, the actor joined the legendary singer on Jimmy Kimmel Live to read the lyrics from Kelly’s new single, “Genius.”

“I can feel your body flowers, while I’m kissing on your thighs,” Cumberbatch says with a straight face. “Go to sleep, and when we wake up I’ll hit that thing again. Promise.” In a monotone voice, he even adds Kelly’s ad libs, “La la la la la.”

The song appears on Kelly’s highly anticipated album, Black Panties, which arrives on December 10.
