Robert Kelly, throughout the years, has been a man of many distinctions. On one hand, he is one of the most iconic song makers of all time. (ALL TIME FAM!) His music has defined generations and been the soundtrack to happy endings worldwide for years. Look around and for every teenager between the ages of 15 and 18, at least one out of every five is a product of “Bump N’ Grind.” However, he is also known for that pesky scandal which was forever immortalized by the honorable Dave Chappelle.
Since 2007, Rob has put out four disregarded projects (three albums and an Auto-Tuned drunken mixtape) and seen Trey Songz supplant his mainstream spot. Kelz doesn’t seem too worried about the past and seems only intent on making things right in the future. Allegedly, Chi-Town’s own has three projects in the works. One in particular is Love Letter with the first single being “When A Woman Loves.”
Contrary to songs of his past, “When A…” lacks the sexually-charged innuendo, but features a more soulful, old school ambiance. Rob leaves the nightclubs behind on this record which sounds like it would fit right in with the school socials of the 1950s and 60rs right in between Frankie Lymon and James Brown. As of now, there is no set release date for the album. In a perfect world it would feature Rob making indigenous music absent of any trends or gimmicks to latch on to. And a Dave Chappelle skit, but that may be running to the well one too many times.
