He may have worked nearly 30 years to earn his rightful title as “The King of R&B,” but now it seems R. Kelly – much like R&B successors Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, and Usher – is looking to extend his reign into other musical territories. After confirming that he would be releasing 3 albums in 2014 (click here if you missed that), Kelly has now announced that he’s hard at work on a new project…a House album.
Taking to ‘Chicago’s Chosen Few DJ’s picnic recently, the ‘Step in the Name of Love’ singer dropped the news that you’ll be stepping to a different beat of his…and soon.
R&B fans shouldn’t feel completely forsaken. While no date has been set for the EDM release, rest assured that it will be preceded by Kelly’s work on ‘White Panties’ – the followup to 2013’s ‘Black Panties’ – and a holiday themed album titled ’12 Nights of Christmas.’
