New Music: R. Kelly – ‘Fireworks’

R. Kelly shoots off “Fireworks” on the new single from his Epic album, hitting stores Sept. 21. Over a snapping, guitar-laced melody care of Polow Da Don, Kellz sings about seeing colors dance across the night sky, crooning inspirational lyrics like, “I feel emotions deep inside my bones/ Like an ocean when the wave gets strong/ I feel today is my victory/ I’ve gotta get out there and make history.”

Not only does the Epic song back up its ambitious album title, but there’s plenty more where that came from, with two other LPs expected from the Pied Piper this year. Now that’s something to celebrate.
