R&B singer Brian McKnight has been invited to perform his raunchy new single, "If You're Ready to Learn," at the AVN awards, the leading annual adult industry awards show, TMZ reports. McKnight was reportedly offered a flight to Las Vegas in January to perform the new song, which will be released next week on iTunes. Other porn companies have also tried to contact McKnight, including massive video site YouPorn.com, which is looking to feature "Learn" as the background music for its site.

McKnight hasn't made plans for the single, saying, "I don't know what specifically I will do with this track in the future . . . and I don't even see myself ever performing it live." But McKnight did express happiness at the song's reaction, admitting, "I am flattered that people have embraced it and are having as much fun with it as I am."

Earlier this week McKnight, best known for romantic jams like "Back at One," shook the Twitter universe after posting a preview clip of the sexually explicit "Learn." In the video, McKnight explained the song, which attempts to teach a female subject how to utilize her genitalia for an unusually heightened sexual experience.
