Brian McKnight vows to never sing his song, “If Ur Ready To Learn.” His sexually explicit parody song went viral on the internet back in April of 2012 and it shocked many long time fans. Many of his fans request that the 16-time Grammy nominee to perform the song. But there are some that don’t want to hear it all, especially live.
Despite the controversy, Artscape Festival organizers stood by their decision to book McKnight for their show, July 23 in Baltimore, Maryland. “Of course we were concerned,” events director Sheila Goodwin told the Baltimore Sun. She went on to say that McKnight’s “management confirmed he would never play that song in concert. Never.”
Although Brian thinks the song is incredible musically, he thinks it’s best left up to being used in the bedroom.
