    OnlyBoy – And you wonder why people get annoyed by Nicki – woman can’t get a break from some people because they’re fed up with annoying “fans” like you.

    OnlyBoy- You sound like a Rihanna and Nicki fan. That explains a lot. Gimmick worshiper. Neither will last as long as R. has in the industry nor will they garner the respect from their peers and industry like R. Kelly has. They won’t get 12 platinum albums like R.

    i think these young kids have it to dam easy…and don’t understand the logic behind hard work…..since the elders already broke down barriers for them they have nothing else to do than to hate….just remember no one remains young 4 ever…and nothing in life is handed out to u ….education is key ….appreciate people and wht they have done past present or future…everything in life is a process each generation has made a contribution…90 babys wht will be yours….since u guys enjoy talking down on people

    @Julian Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Bill Withers, Prince, Teddy Pendergrass > R. Kelly… And I’m leaving out A LOT. I know it’s your opinion, but you really shouldn’t ever, EVER listen to R&B if you think R. Kelly is the greatest of all time. Even Kelly would tell you that’s an ignorant an uneducated statement. That’s like saying Reggie Miller is better than MJ, Magic, Bird, Russell, Wilt, Oscar, Dream, Kobe, etc. He’s an incredible talent, he’s been relevant for a long time and this is a great album. But pay homage. Update your library with the pioneers, and actually LISTEN.

    Awesome I can’t wait to get it. To the person that called R. kelly a has been, where you been? He could never be a has been. Clearly some people don’t understand real music, talent and a musical genius.

    @90 Wisdom It Is My Opinion That R. Kelly Is The Best Singer/Songwriter Of All Time. Marvin Gaye Is My Favorite Pure Singer Of All Time Hands Down But When It Comes To Pioneers I Always Pay Homage To The Stevie Wonders, Curtis Hathaways Of The Music World. I’ve Definitely Done My Musical Homework And MY Answer Is R. Kelly. Looking At His Body of Work And Musical Creativity Since 1990-2010. R. Kelly Pays Homage To The Greats Thru His Music Its Amazing! He Makes Every Genre Of Music Work! No One Else Can Do That.

    dude if you think R. Kelly is Reggie Miller in comparison to the other greats YOU should update your library, seriously. All I listen to are the greats of soul(Sam Cooke is my favorite) and R. Kelly is most certainly in the very top tier as far as overall talent, creativity, accomplishments, and consistency. This “Love Letter” album as well as his show-stopping Soul Train performance only continue to solidify his status. To liken R. Kelly to Reggie Miller is beyond ridiculous lol smh…

    I have to agree with TheOne1… you may not agree that Kelly is the best ever, but hes def not a Reggie Miller to anyone you named. Who on that list would top him in terms of consistancy… Hes been hot for 20m yrs! Not to mention all the artists that hes written and produced for. some of the artist you name didnt even write or produce for themselves! In terms of writing, creativity and having a wide variety of music styles, like sexual, love, gospel, steppin, club, i dont see how you can see him as a reggi miller to their MJ… Maybe a Kobe to their MJ, but def not a Reggie Miller. Hes TOP10 R&B act easily, maybe TOP 5! The greats would say the same. Ohh did i mention he basically revived the Isley Bros. For 2 albums straight he may as well been a member of the group!!!! Kells, always KING of R&B!! Album 5 out of 5!!!

    @EJ the greats have said the same; Ron Isley being the most vocal about it. Charlie Wilson also credits R. Kelly with reviving his career as well.
