When R. Kelly stopped by the Rolling Stone office last week, he made some salaciously sexy songs out of improbable subjects like an Italian hero sandwich and, well, a dolphin. "I know how to put it into a melody and make it comical, but sexual at the same time," the R&B star said in an interview for the next issue of the magazine. "With my gift, I can pretty much write a song out of anything."

The most popular of Kelly's new tracks – none of which are slated to appear on Kellz's forthcoming Black Panties – was "Sex Dolphin." In our interview, Kelly said, "If I had a track, if I was in the studio, man, I'd blow your mind with it." Now Canadian DJ Ango has added some tender, romantic backing music to the Rolling Stone-exclusive songs. Check out what he did with "Sex Dolphin," "Italian Hero Sandwich of Love" and "Ice Hockey" below.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
