There isnt R&B without R Kelly, you can not deny that this man puts the genre on the map.
We dont hear much media wise from this man but doesnt mean that he hasnt been working. R Kelly is constantly touring and recording music.
The Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and producer, will release his 11th studio album, Write Me Back, on June 25th.
Write Me Back is the follow up to 2010’s critically acclaimed Love Letter, which celebrated the music of the 50s and 60s. The new album represents the natural progression of Kelly’s musical time machine, recalling the sultry and seductive sounds associated with such icons as Barry White, Marvin Gaye and Teddy Pendergrass, among others. Like its Love Letter predecessor, Write Me Back is also a celebration of love and that is what we love him for.
R Kelly always boasts that he has a lot to do with the birth of babies since the 90’s, from classic R&B to hip-hop, inspirational to gospel, no other artist has covered the vast array of human emotions more than R. Kelly. With a track record that boasts over 40 million albums sold worldwide, 6 #1 albums, 11 #1 singles, 3 Grammy Awards, 8 Soul Train Awards, 6 American Music Awards and 6 Billboard Music Awards, R. Kelly has rightfully earned his title as the undisputed “King of R&B.”
In 2011, Billboard named R. Kelly the #1 most successful R&B artists of the last 25 years! When not in the spotlight, Kelly has written and produced hit songs for Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Maxwell, Britney Spears and countless others. More recently, Kelly was tapped to write and produce original music for the upcoming Sparkle soundtrack. We can guarantee that this will be another R&B classic and look forward to a UK tour.
