R, Kelly announces a new Christmas album for 2014.
Â R. Kelly's new album, Black Panties, isn't quite the best Christmas present to give to your sister, therefore next year, Kellz plans to give a gift that the whole family can enjoy. The R&B icon is working on his first ChristmasÂ album.
In a new interview, Kellz revealed that heâs already started recording for next yearâs Christmas album.
âIâm working on a ChristmasÂ albumÂ right nowÂ called theÂ 12 Nights of ChristmasÂ and itâs gonna be a lot of lovemaking,â said Kellz. âI come with thatÂ bearingÂ gifts.â
Even though heâs working on the album already, he isnât releasing it until 2014. âI started it last ChristmasÂ actually, but I donât believe in just putting out a ChristmasÂ albumjust to sell records. It has to beÂ the nextÂ ['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.â
Kellz also revealed that he has about 7-8 albums worth of material waiting to be released. His follow up toÂ Black PantiesÂ is half-way written according to Kellz, and he had this to say about it:
âItâs gonna be anotherÂ 12 PlayÂ album. Itâs gonna be that type of album because thereâs been a lovemaking album droughtâ¦and Iâve come to save the day.â
