R. Kelly Albums Fall Out Of iTunes Chart Following Azealia Banks & Vince Staples Condemnation

Published: Thursday 19th Apr 2018 by David

R. Kelly’s fans seem to have grown tired of defending the star as allegations surrounding his sick obsession with little African-American girls crush what is left of his legacy.

At the forefront of efforts to put a stop his alleged acts?

The Hip-Hop stars Azealia Banks and Vince Staples.

Last week brought with it claims that Kelly had knowingly infected a teenage girl with a sexually transmitted disease during the period in which he tried to convince her to join the prostitution ring he is said to run out of Atlanta, Georgia.

The claim stood as the latest piece in the stomach-churning puzzle that is Kelly’s history with little black girls.

Unfortunately for him, the rising wave of allegations he faces has been powered in the press by the socially-conscious acts Vince Staples and Azealia Banks who used their platforms to blast the ageing singer this month.

Listening to their criticism? The last of the Kelly’s fans.

For, this morning saw each and every R. Kelly album slip, trip and dip out of the iTunes R&B chart as calls for them to pull their support from him and show solidarity with his victims intensify.

Nowhere to be found of iTunes general albums chart, Kelly’s sets have been banished from the platform’s R&B arena due to their frighteningly low sales.

Why frightening?

His projects (2016’s ‘The Buffet’ included) now find themselves outperformed and outsold by albums today unveiled when he was a child.

These include projects released by Diana Ross & The Supremes, Al Green, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding.

Put simply, support from Kelly is so skimpy that his new music is unable to compete with material released before his 1993 debut.

Alas, the bad news doesn’t end there for the ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number’ lyricist.

For, his low sales also see him crushed under the chart weight of Mary J. Blige’s 1992 release ‘What’s the 411′ and Destiny’s Child’s ‘The Writing’s on the Wall’…released in 1999.


Well Preston, it seems as though they have.

      Michael is dead you dip sh!t jack a$$; hv some respect.

    • Jasmine April 19, 2018

      Michael was arrested, tried, and found innocent I n 2005. His 1st case was in 1993 and Michael fought that to prove his innocence but because he was touring his insurance company settled with that kid’s family. Michael did not pay one cent towards the settlement but that insurance check damaged his career and Michael was hell bent on proving his innocence.

    • Jasmine April 19, 2018

      But radio still plays the sh|t out of Kelly records everyday. He is innocent until proven guilty. These nobodis Azalea and that fairy queen Vince ain’t on the iTunes charts and I don’t see anything written about these two cockroaches.

      • JC April 24, 2018

        You’re a child m*******, too.

    • Jasmine April 19, 2018

      You do not get “jailed” for accusations. That is why. #Allegedly

  2. I HATE .WHYyyyte n Blaaaxk. Bitchezzzzz April 19, 2018

    HE IS STILL RICH….AND NOT GUILTY, s the police said not guilty he is innocent leave him alone, Kobe Bryant Tiger Woods Russell Simmons Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson

    • Hot Stuff April 19, 2018

      Maybe you can convince…Hope.

  3. Tori April 19, 2018

    He should now out with the little grace he has left. He did a great job but there’s no coming back from this scandal, at least not now.

    • Jasmine April 19, 2018

      No. He should consider doing an interview about it in a few years once all this dies down. Right now he is being hit with meritless lawsuits from women he dumped. That is easy to fight so he is not motivated to speak up. I suspect this woman is being used as bait to recruit another woman who lives in Kelly’s house currently. Simply put, the lawyer needs more damaging claims than this to make Kelly speak up.

  4. Loskii April 19, 2018

    But azebra no banks supports Nicki Minaj who supports a child m*******.

  5. Riko April 19, 2018

    Every huge black celebrity y’all allow the media to help turnish their legacy even if proved innocent by law. If he was white he would hace been moved and and his legacy would have never been disrespected this way. I don’t agree with child pornography but in no way shape or form did he put guns to anyone head. It’s sickening this man was proven innocent by law and still y’all nak his life a living he’ll. Michael Jackson, Whitney etc

  6. Liam April 19, 2018

    First time seeing that Get On The Bus performance but Kelly slayed on this one…those runs were cute

  7. I HATE .WHYyyyte n Blaaaxk. Bitchezzzzz April 19, 2018

    Minaj said the people wanted money first if it’s true why ask for money first

  8. Stop It April 19, 2018

    This blog post is so dumb because none of his albums were on the iTunes charts at the time Vince said what he said. Vince is a nobody and so is Azealia. Lastly even R. Kelly’s last album outsold anything Vince and Azealia has ever released.

    • Hot Stuff April 19, 2018

      That’s not true but even if it is it actually makes the situation worse! His fans are really done with him.

      • Jasmine April 19, 2018

        No his fans are not streamers. His fans are radio djs who still play his songs on their playlists and music consumers who buy concert tickets and physical cds. Since when was r. kelly a big streaming artist? never Since when was R. Kelly a big itunes chart artist? Only when he has a new album out. What exactly is he supposed to chart digitially with anyway? He does not have a new album out. You are just looking for any reason to hate on him. Get a life.
