R. Kelly‘s legacy is being fiercely debated amid new Kendrick Lamar lyrics that contact on the now-disgraced/convicted R&B legend — query being … did he make good music???
That is what Twitter’s arguing about proper now, this after anyone apparently responded to one in all Kenny’s new songs on his album, ‘Mr. Morale and The Large Steppers,’ by which he suggests his SO hypocritically nonetheless listens to Kelly’s music — regardless of, properly, the whole lot.
This is the unique tweet from Thursday that set this entire convo off — the consumer writes, “I want y’all would cease saying everyone listens to R. kelly music secretly like no we don’t 😭😭😭 i promise you the music isn’t that good.”
They went on so as to add … “And when you gotta take heed to it in secret which means you recognize it’s fallacious so like the place are we going from right here.”
The monitor apparently referenced is “We Cry Collectively,” that includes Taylour Paige in a heated rap argument with Kendrick. At one level, she says … “You the explanation Harvey Weinstein needed to see his conclusion //You the explanation R. Kelly cannot acknowledge that he is abusive.”
To that, Ken responds within the tune … “Man, shut the f*** up, everyone knows you continue to playin’ his music // Stated I am uninterested in these emotional-ass, ungrateful-ass bitches // Faux harmless, faux feminist, cease pretendin’ // Y’all sentiments ain’t realer than what you defendin’.”
Again to the tweet … tons of individuals responded by saying that denying R. Kelly made “good” music is absurd — frankly, the man has the accolades and the writing/producing credit to show it, objectively. Reality is, yeah — R. Kelly was undoubtedly a bona fide hit-maker.
There is no scarcity of stars he is written/produced for and/or with (or in lots of instances, all 3) — the checklist consists of names like Aaliyah, B2K, Diddy, Toni Braxton, Girl Gaga, Sparkle, Maxwell, MICHAEL JACKSON, Nick Cannon, Ginuwine, The Isley Bros., WHITNEY HOUSTON, Usher, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Pitbull, Justin Bieber … and lots of extra.
In fact, this does not even contact his personal private checklist of hits that had been wildly standard when launched — not the least of which incorporates ‘Ignition (Remix),’ ‘Bump n’ Grind,’ ‘Step within the Title of Love,’ ‘I Imagine I Can Fly,’ and numerous others.
What this appears to boil all the way down to is … can two issues be true without delay, and extra importantly — can we separate the artwork from the artist? In that case, there’s merely no means anybody might argue R. Kelly did not make good music in his heyday … and sure, he has additionally executed horrible issues.
You Nonetheless Bumpin’ R. Kelly in 2022???
With that stated, we’ll ask the plain — be mindful solutions are nameless — but when we’re being actual … are YOU nonetheless taking part in R. Kelly music right now, regardless of his private conduct???
