Grammy-winning R&B king R. Kelly is set to release his new album, “Write Me Back,” on June 26, RCA Records announced Tuesday.
“Write Me Back” is led by the bubbly “Share My Love,” which landed at No. 1 on urban adult radio, and his latest single, “Feelin’ Single.”
The singer’s 11th disc is the follow-up to 2010’s “Love Letter.” The Grammy-nominated album garnered critical acclaim when Kelly traded in his salacious brand of R&B and knocking hip-hop beats for a disc brimming with retro throwbacks.
Ready for more salacious drama, singsong monologues and hilarious antics from Sylvester, Twan and Pimp Lucius? Good, because Grammy-winning R&B king R. Kelly is finally revisiting his cult classic “Trapped in the Closet.”
The singer’s campy hip-hopera originally began as a five-video series to accompany the melodramatic segment of songs on his 2005 disc, “TP.3 Reloaded.” Fan demand made the singer add more and more chapters, and roll out the accompanying videos on DVD.
He’s again teaming up with IFC to premiere the latest in the saga and promises the new installments will be out of this world. Considering the first 22 chapters featured an extremely complicated storyline that featured sexual exploits, little people and a mysterious package, it's impossible to doubt Kelly.
The R&B lothario R. Kelly, fresh off announcing his exquisitely titled memoir, "Soula Coaster," and a concert cruise in October (woe that David Foster Wallace isn't around to write about that one), has decided to revisit his ongoing serialized pop-opera "Trapped in the Closet." Kelly told TMZ he's written 32 new chapters in the Byzantine murder-adultery-utter-insanity saga, but is looking for investors before production, because "it costs a lot of money to do." This is clear evidence of a crisis in public arts funding in America.
