about the artist


As the undisputed king of R&B, R. Kelly never seems to be far from the current soul scene. Be it collaborating with his homeboy Snoop ("That's That") or trading verses with Ciara ("Promise Remix"), this Chicago soul man has displayed a consistent brilliance throughout his fifteen-year career. Since 2002, R. Kelly has blessed his fans with a new album every year, and 2007 will be no different. While the rest of the music world slept, R. Kelly has been inside his famed studio the Chocolate Factory making countless beats, laying down mackadelic vocals and creating wonderful music. Much like his musical forefathers Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Donny Hathaway (the latter two also hailed from Chi-town), R. Kelly makes songs for ladies lounging in suites as well as homeboys b-balling in the streets. Aptly titled Double Up, Kelly's new disc features a wide ranch of songs that pushes the sonic envelope while staying true to his game. "Everything I did in the past, I'm about to double up on it," says the windy city maestro. In other words, the listener will not be disappointed with the fierce production, superior lyricism and hyper collabos one has come to expect from a Kells project. Just in time for summer, with its whirlwind of backyard barbeques and beach parties, Double Up is filled with enough anthems to dominate the season. Firing the soul shot heard around the world, "I'm A Flirt (Remix)" is the self-expletory title of the first single. Over a smooth mid-tempo groove, R. Kelly lays down a bit of nightspot realness. "Soon As I See Her Walk Up In The Club (I'm A Flirt)/ Winkin Her Eyes At Me, When I Roll Up On Them Dubs (I'm A Flirt)/ Sometimes When I'm With My Chick On The Low (I'm A Flirt)," he sings. Joining forces with his homies T.I and T-Pain, Kelly has constructed the perfect player's anthem. With an exquisite video shot by famed photographer Timothy Saccenti, the scorching single has already become a popular request on YouTube as well as in heavy rotation on BET and MTV. "Having worked with so many hip-hop artists over the last few years, I decided to throw some of that magic on my own record," says R. Kelly. Enlisting a posse of hard-hitting' rhyme slayers for Double Up, Kelly proves himself a versatile performer who can vocally hang with anyone on the mic. From the big beat blast of "Rock Star" with six-time Grammy Award winner Ludacris to the bombastic appearance of Rick Ross on the thunderous "Put Some Money On It," Kelly voice and outstanding production is pure fire. Hooking-up with his old buddy Snoop, the two do their thang on the title track. With a kick of killer bass, this song is bound to have folks house party sweating. Still, experimenting with his personal style of rap-singing, "Pull Your Hair" will have women across the country smiling sexily while tightening their weaves. Later on the record, Kelly shares the mic with hometown boy Kayne West on the amazing "Hook It Up." Yet, for anyone who might think that the pied piper of soul has turned his back on ballads has another think coming. "To me, rap and R&B are like two hands holding one another," says R. Kelly. "Double Up is about 70% hip-hop, but, that being said, I'm always going to make songs for the ladies." On Double Up, R. Kelly gives his fans not only want they want, he gives them twice as much.

?Rise Up? In Memory of the Victims and Families of Virginia Tec

New York, New York - Moved by the terrible events at Virginia Tech, singer-songwriter R. Kelly has written and recorded a song of encouragement in memory of the victims and in condolence to their families. As the details of the tragedy were unfolding, Kelly was traveling across the country on his tour bus for a performance. Deeply affected by the news, he was inspired to write lyrics he shaped into a song entitled, ⿿Rise Up,⿝ a moving anthem in honor and remembrance of the victims of this heartbreaking event. At Kelly's request, his label, Jive/Zomba Records is making the track available as a digital single for sale on Tuesday, May 15th in hopes of spreading the message of hope and unity. R. Kelly and Jive will donate 100% of the net proceeds from the digital single sales to the university⿿s official fund, The Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, and listeners who buy the track will be able to access a direct link to the memorial website. Recalling the spirit of triumph in one of Kelly⿿s previous celebrated anthems, ⿿I Believe I Can Fly,⿝ ⿿Rise Up⿝ is meant to offer encouragement and solace in the face of this senseless tragedy; ⿿⿦We⿿ll be strong together, Stand together, Pray together, Rise up.⿝ To learn more about the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, visit http://www.vt.edu/tragedy/memorial_fund.php.
