R. Kelly ft. OJ Da Juiceman - Supaman High
Since R. Kelly got acquitted of these pesky six-year-old child porno charges, he and his label have had plenty of time to brainstorm for his ninth studio album (which, like Nas’ most recent release, will remain Untitled). After nearly a year, we have the official Jive-selected lead single, which finds Kells experiencing a Supaman High. Still regarded as an industry heavyweight, the singer had no trouble snagging an increasingly popular guest feature—not T-Pain, Weezy, Akon, Kanye, or even Soulja Boy (woulda made sense) but none other than Gucci Mane‘s “sidekick rapper.” OJ Da Juiceman swoops in to deliver a high-pitched (pun intended) hook, as well as a second verse and a few infectious “ay!” ad-libs. Willy Will‘s beat should help Supaman High soar to the top of the charts and become the latest in R. Kelly’s string of club-ready first singles, (hopefully) paving the way for a slow-jam follow-up (for any Jive. execs reading, may I recommend #1 Fan?).
