R. Kelly announces 'Untitled' album release details
The release date has been moved around a bit, but it seems R. Kelly has settled on Dec. 1 for his "Untitled" album to appear.
The set was recorded in Chicago and Atlanta, with producers Infinity, Lil Ronnie and Chris Henderson.
One slight albatross around the waist for its holiday arrival, however, is the less-that-number-one start of the set's first single, "Number One." The track made some impact on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, humping its way into the top 10, but it climaxed at No. 68 on The Hot 100.
Frankly, you're kind of asking for an uphill battle if you are R. Kelly and you name your track "Number One": 1) it looks bad if you don't actually make it to the top of the chart, a, erm, position you're familiar with and 2) many people may still associate you with a certain incident that involved peeing.
Still, he sings, "Having sex with you is like making hits... I'm in your mix like a number one record." Bless your heart, R. Kelly.
Jive hopes they'll have better luck with the second single "Religious," which is less heavy on the heavy-handed euphamisms and easier to listen to you.
