R. Kelly has conquered R&B, and now it seems that the Pied Piper is on to new horizons.
"I want y'all to know a secret," the singer announced to an excited crowd during his performance at The Chosen Few Picnic Weekend 2014 in Chicago earlier this month. "I'm working on a house album right now! I want y'all to know, it's coming!"
Yeah. You heard that right. R. Kelly and House music. If you're feeling iffy about that proposition, well, you're not like Kells. He's certainly not lacking confidence.
"And y'all know I love music and I feel like I can do anything when it comes to music because I am music," he said.
Kind of reminds of that time last year when he told MTV News -- and stressed he wasn't exaggerating -- that "a trillion" babies had been made to his music.
Who knows what this album will sound like, but with the Kells' silky vocals, we'll probably be able to add a few more to that modest number when it's all said and done.
