R. Kelly Will Release Christmas Album Next Year
R. Kelly is most likely on Santa’s naughty list, but he’s set to bring some holiday cheer that could possibly make it into your Christmas stocking next year.
The ‘Blank Panties’ creator will be releasing ’12 Nights of Christmas,’ which he claims is “gonna be a lot of lovemaking.”
“I started it last Christmas actually, but I don’t believe in just putting out a Christmas album just to sell records,” he told Rap-Up. “It has to be the next ['This Christmas']. In order to get that and capture that moment, you have to take a couple of Christmases and then you come with it.”
This isn’t his first step into the world of Christmas music. The Chicago native recently recorded ‘Christmas I’ll Be Steppin’ for ‘The Best Man Holiday’ soundtrack.
He also revealed he’s at work on his next LP. And since there’s been a drought in the “lovemaking album” department, he’s going to be the one to fill that void. “It’s gonna be another ’12 Play’ album,” he shares. “It’s gonna be that type of album because there’s been a lovemaking album drought… And I’ve come to save the day.”
Earlier this week, the singer experienced a bit of a train wreck when he interacted with his fans on Twitter. He gave supporters the freedom to ask anything using the hashtag ‘#AskRKelly,’ however, the questions focused on sex (unsurprisingly) and underage girls.
