Cocky or just plain crazy?

I'm sucker for a great R&B album.

I downloaded R. Kelly's new TP.3 Reloaded. The album is currently No. 3 on Billboard's Top 100 after spending the last two weeks at No. 1. The album is all SEX- but not the holding-hands-on-the-beach-making-missionary-style-love-once-a-month-to-your-faithful-wife-of-20 years sex.

It's a solid album and well worth a listen, though I've yet to warm up to the middle-of-the-CD, five-chapter, five-song operatta, "Trapped in the Closet." Here are some of the Reloaded titles, decide for yourself: "Hit It Til the Mornin'," "Sex Weed," and "Kickin' It With Your Girlfriend" (which is not about movie night with your main squeeze).

Here's the thing I can't figure out. This sexed-up songman is also currently on trial in his hometown of Chicago for "multiple counts of child pornography involving a tape that allegedly shows him having sexual relations with a teenage girl." He was charged in April 2002. I haven't seen the tape for obvious reasons, but thanks to Dave Chappelle's parody video, "Pee on You" (note who gets Director credit), I've got a good idea.

Look at the world's most powerful, and they're usually basted in confidence. Right now, Kelly's walking around like a turkey the day after Thanksgiving. Funny thing, turkey's big at Christmas too.

Here's a sample:

"Girls Go Crazy"

"In the Kitchen"

i really liked that song he did in the mid 90s with one of the Isley Brothers. May have been called "keep it on the downlow."

I gotta check out these tracks now.

R. Kelly's Ignition remix is one of the catchier, better modern R&B tunes you're likely to ever hear.

He's one of those artists that the less you know about, the better.

Agree with you, Sasefina. Wish I knew nothing about his personal life.

Knowing about his alleged wrongdoings makes listening to these sexually-charged songs seem so bad. But, I can't help it ... I do like this CD.
