R. Kelly - Be My #2

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: R. Kelly , Club
Producer:
R. Kelly and Jack Splash
Album:
Untitled

For nearly any other singer on the planet a sentiment like “Girl I love you…but you could never be my number one” would be remarkably bold, but it’s an almost boring display of honesty from R. Kelly; after all, the man once invited the ladies to join him on his sex planet (which just so happened to be near Uranus). No, it’s musically - not lyrically - where Kells’ new single Be My #2 stands out. #2 marks a decidedly club/funk/techno departure for the usually r&b-centric crooner, a result no doubt of working with always eclectic producer Jack Splash, who here crafts a beat that bounces between classic funk and early morning Vegas club bounce. The hardest of hardcore Kelly fans may be put off by the Pied Piper’s new sound, but personally speaking, I’m enjoying the man’s work as much as ever: “that ass is incredible, but I can’t leave her [my number 1].” Only R. could get away with a line like that. For more “not your usual Kells” be sure to check out his last album Untitled, which dropped way back in December.
