It's apparently not too soon to start thinking about gifts for Christmas 2014 -- not if your friends and loved ones include R. Kelly fans, anyway.

In an interview with Rap-Up, Kelly announced that he's planning a yuletide collection for next year. The working title is The 12 Nights of Christmas, "and it's gonna be a lot of lovemaking," he said. "I come with that bearing gifts."

Kelly started work on the project last holiday season, "but I don't believe in just putting out a Christmas album just to sell records...In order to get that and capture that moment, you have to take a couple of Christmases and then you come with it."

In the meantime, fans can check out a holiday-themed tune he contributed to the soundtrack for The Best Man Holiday, called Christmas I'll Be Steppin'.
