Everything sounds better when it’s coming out of Benedict Cumberbatch’s mouth, amirite ladies?

But seriously, the 37-year-old English actor’s silky timbre makes just about anything sound important, deep or sexy. So when Jimmy Kimmel decided to have the Star Trek Into Darkness star perform a dramatic reading of R. Kelly’s “Genius” (from his upcoming album Black Panties) we were kind of expecting the reverse. Even Benedict Cumberbatch can’t make those lyrics sound good.

Wrong. Watch above.
