Preview R. Kelly’s ‘Love Letter’ Album

Published: Thursday 2nd Dec 2010 by Sam

Ahead of the release of R. Kelly‘s new LP ‘Love Letter’ on December 14th, you can now stream the album in its entirety. Inspired by the soulful sounds of Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, the LP is one of two to come from the R&B pioneer – the second being ‘Zodiac’ which is due next year.

I’m really enjoying what the Pied Piper has on offer this go round. For despite opting for a throwback flavoured record this time, the quality of Kelly’s output was not compromised. A testament no doubt to the versatility of a man who remains one of  modern R&B’s greats.Versatility being something a few new artists should take note of  (see: Trey Songs aka ‘My Sex Sells Gold But Not Platinum’)

    This screams pure copycat. This reminds me of Ray Charles the whole stance.

    Trey’s album out for a year Ready no grammy nomination/ PPP no mention either!
    15 weeks and ” When a womans love” Nominated and he shall when for originality R&B song! Also Untitled is up for one and this album has not sold Gold status! Ops it was the international records sells of 4 million that will do it!

    R&B King will make history R Kelly baby

  4. Whateva December 2, 2010

    REAL Talent at last!!

  5. MissImpartial December 2, 2010

    Trey Songz will never be on R Kelly’s level. He should first try to be on on Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake or Usher’s Level before someone can compare to RKelly.

    I wish R. Kelly would go back to TP-2 or some of his earlier classics. I can’t enjoy his music when I feel like he’s playing a character and not just being himself totally.

  7. THEiVY December 2, 2010

    r. kelly is nothing more than a manifestation of aaron hall. look it up he stole the man’s entire mantra and furthermore can someone tell r kelly that jamie foxx already did the ray thing. why people just cant sing? why do you have to evoke a time period or completely swagger jack a dead artist. when a woman loves seriously he is screaming on that song like he has hemroids !

  8. Ch… December 2, 2010

    @Theivy – They both took their singing style from Charlie Wilson. Aaron Hall is nothing but a crackhead with no talent. Jamie Foxx portrayed Ray in a movie that doesn’t mean he did the whole song style. He’s NOT swagger jacking a damn thing. He’s paying homage to his influences Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and many other soul artists. He already clarified this in an interview. Now STFU and stop hating.

  9. Ch… December 2, 2010

    He’s a musical genius!!! YESSS KELLZ! King of R&B!!!!

  10. SWEXY December 2, 2010

    Y’all know R. Kelly’s pattern is a real R&B album followed by a ghetto R&B album.

    So, y’all betta ENJOY “Love Letter” while you can!

  14. December 2, 2010

    oooh…”Lost In Your Love” is really good!! Reminds me of “Step In the Name of Love”

  15. S*** December 2, 2010

    MJ Who??

    THE KING RKelly!!

  16. S*** December 2, 2010


    when a woman loves = BEST song of the year.

  17. IAMWHOIAM December 2, 2010

    This album is INCREDIBLE!! “Lost In Your Love” is MAGICAL!! His vocals on “Radio Message” are absolutely stunning!

  18. NUNYA December 2, 2010

    Some people are only saying Ray Charles because thats all you all know. Thats Stevie Wonders Fingertips part 1 or 2. That picture is no where near Ray Charles.

  19. LOL December 2, 2010

    @ s*** did you say mj who ?

    mj>kelly in life,artistry,vocals,dancing,writing,producung,sicerety,……….need i go on!!!

  20. Alexander December 2, 2010

    15 weeks with one song compared to others who has been out like PPP or Ready( Trey Songz) Usher’s… R Kelly will win the Grammy for ” When a Woamn’s Love”
    And don’t be surprise Untilted win’s one also.

    For all you 14 year old or 18yr old bleeding hoodrats and gay ass pop tarts! Trey was not welcomed in this grammy nomination party!
    Goat Songz is a sheep.

  21. Whateva December 2, 2010

    S***…R Kelly is one helluva songwriter and singer. But there was no need to disrespect a man R kelly referred to as his mentor. That was just uncalled for.

  22. Alexander December 3, 2010

    Trey was not nominated for anything! Hmmm wonder if the music Industry picked up on his non-talents! Sure they did in fact caught him in the act of being one demensional with trying to be JR.! S** maybe sell on TV, but these record companies need to stop producing plain garbage to these kids who learn nothing but rims/cars and bottle popping.

    Hip Hop is dead!

    R&B is about love and caring about that woman! Real talk

  23. GAG!! December 3, 2010

    I think R. Kelly is a better singer than MJ.

  24. Robier December 3, 2010

    get it R

  25. antertain December 3, 2010

    Musically he has always had a genius mind set and he can cover all subject types and sound natural and in his comfort zone.

    Greatness artist wise.

    Album is great!

  26. Jay December 3, 2010
