R. Kelly may be facing life in prison after being convicted of sex trafficking, but it appears the disgraced singer is receiving grace from some corners of the record-buying public.

Per industry tracking date, Kelly’s music has registered a double-digit boost stream and a triple-digit boom in sales.
Indeed, from September 27 through October 3, the embattled performer’s on-demand audio streams were up 22%, while video streams were up 23% compared to the preceding week. Collectively, he amassed 13.4 million streams.
On the album sales front, Kelly clocked a 517% spike.
All of which were accrued after he was found guilty.
The eyebrow-raising development comes as YouTube shut down Kelly’s channels.
