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 any person apparently responded to certainly one of Kenny’s new songs on his album, ‘Mr. Morale and The Massive Steppers,’ wherein he suggests his SO hypocritically nonetheless listens to Kelly’s music — regardless of, nicely, all the things.
Here is the unique tweet from Thursday that set this entire convo off — the person 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 in case you gotta take heed to it in secret meaning you understand it’s improper 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 music … “Man, shut the f*** up, everyone knows you continue to playin’ his music // Stated I am uninterested in these emotional-ass, ungrateful-ass bitches // Pretend 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 indisputably a bona fide hit-maker.
There is no scarcity of stars he is written/produced for and/or with (or in lots of circumstances, all 3) — the checklist consists of names like Aaliyah, B2K, Diddy, Toni Braxton, Woman Gaga, Sparkle, Maxwell, MICHAEL JACKSON, Nick Cannon, Ginuwine, The Isley Bros., WHITNEY HOUSTON, Usher, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Pitbull, Justin Bieber … and plenty of extra.
In fact, this does not even contact his personal private checklist of hits that have been wildly widespread when launched — not the least of which incorporates ‘Ignition (Remix),’ ‘Bump n’ Grind,’ ‘Step within the Title of Love,’ ‘I Consider 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 method anybody may argue R. Kelly did not make good music in his heyday … and sure, he has additionally carried out horrible issues.
You Nonetheless Bumpin’ R. Kelly in 2022???
With that stated, we’ll ask the apparent — bear in mind solutions are nameless — but when we’re being actual … are YOU nonetheless enjoying R. Kelly music at the moment, regardless of his private conduct???
