iTunes Review

R. Kelly had thrived through several generations of R&B trends, so when the “retro soul” fad took over in the late '00s, the Chicago auteur was destined to throw his hat in the ring. Raised in inner-city Chicago, Kelly is old enough to remember the original wave of soul greats. The spirits of Curtis Mayfield and Donny Hathaway still echo in his city, and in a real way he's an extension on that tradition. For most people, though, this sound isn’t about tradition but about a feeling of lightness and fun—and no R&B singer does lightness and fun better than Kelly. While “When a Woman Loves,” “Radio Message,” “Love Is," and “Just Can’t Enough” conjure vintage soul, the rest of the album turns to Kelly’s own rich and velvety vision of R&B production. After 20 years in the game, Kelly still writes and produces all of his own work, and songs like “Lover Letter,” “Number One Hit," and “Music Must Be a Lady” are elegant and effortless. More crucially, they exude the freshness of an artist just arriving on the scene and not a 20-year veteran.

He's Back

R. Kelly is back with this one, though it's a different style than he usually does, it's great. When A Woman Love's is my favorite track on this album and one of my favorite R. Kelly songs. Go ahead and get this album, you won't regret it.

R&B producer/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter R. Kelly and his supporting band Public Announcement began recording in 1992 at the end of the new jack swing era, yet he was able to keep much of its sound alive while remaining commercially successful. While he created a smooth, professional mixture of hip-hop beats, soulman crooning, and funk, the most distinctive element of Kelly's music is its explicit carnality. He was able to make songs like "Sex Me," "Bump n' Grind," "Your Body's Callin',"...
