R. Kelly Really Enjoyed This Snapchat Video by Rihanna


Published December 9, 2016

If an “I Believe I Can Fly” challenge just so happens to spring up on social media in the near future, just make sure you thank Rihanna for it.

RiRi gave us another tickle of Snapchat humor when she posted a video of her crooning out R. Kelly’s classical R&B sensation "I Believe I Can Fly.” But the solo performance wasn’t just any old execution — it was the best mousy-voiced, deer-faced presentation you would ever want to imagine.

The video of the bad gal, in all of her adorableness, made its internet rounds and consequently landed in earshot of the Pied Piper. Retweeting the video with his seal of approval, R. Kelly tweeted how grateful he was that the song was still making classic waves even after two decades.

“I love a good classic!” Kelly tweeted. “20 years later and this song still makes an impact. I see you Rihanna, singing on Snapchat.”

Yup. Call it a comeback.

Check out Rih’s Snapchat-filtered rendition of the classic and R. Kelly's nod below.
