It´s as simple as this!
When R. Kelly released his first single from his then upcoming new album “Write Me Back” by the way a follow up to his until then latest album “Love Letter” I knew it was a must-have album!
On “Share My Love” he was back, and this time with a loose disco-soul track that lots of nods to Barry White and other late 70s and early 80s kings of soul like; Barry White, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, Alexander O´neal, Joe Smooth and Colonel Abrams
I have made a spotify that matches R. Kellys “Share My Love”. Just click the play button to play!
Now his new album is finally here “Write Me Back” and his sounding better and greater than ever.
|It´s a great retro-feel on the albumcover don´t you think!|
Reviews all over the world – gives it the big thumb up (see reviews from metacritic.com a site that keeps score of entertainment, gives him 79 of totalt 100 points) – and gives R. Kelly the respect he deserves as one of the worlds greatest male singers! This time no guest singers or rappers, one track that´s using a sample, everwhere else a lot of real instruments – and a organic feel to the whole album.
|If you prefer the deluxe-edition, this is how the cover looks!|
He may has done some odd and strange things from time to time, and quite controversial things like the “Trapped In The Closet”s epic soul-opera. But still he always rises from the ashes and shows that he can do comeback like no one else can!
