    think Kellz & Aaron Hall???

    Quincy Jones produced a song called "Heavens Girl" back in 1999, I never heard this song before until today on R Kelly radio on AOL...

    Well... The song features R Kelly, Aaron Hall, Ron Isley and Charlie Wilson. The song surprised me because for a long time I thought that Kellz and Aaron had beef??? It's funny to hear them come together because, everyone said the Aaron Hall copied Charlie Wilson, and R Kelly copied Aaron Hall and Ron Isley be ridin' Kellz... And here they are together on a song Quincy Jones.

    Its actually from either 1995 or 1996 from Quincy's Jones "Q's Jook Joint" album. R. Kelly wrote the song but I'm not sure if it was him or Quincy that produced. Very smooth track.

    EDIT: Kells and Quincy co-produced

    yeah I'm surprised as well that you are just now hearing it. but anyway here is how the story goes: Originally R.Kelly offered the track to Michael Jackson,but he turned it down. anyway R and his then Manager Barry Hankerson had the song placed on Q's Album.Hankerson in addtion to managing R was also managing the Winans and Hankerson had that built in connection with Q so in order to give R more work there. that is how the Buddy Buddy system of the music business works. R.kelly did take alot off of Aaron Hall that is true,but R.Kelly eventually got his own thing and as a Solo Artist he left Aaron in the dust. you see R.Kelly went through the same things as any other new artist upon entering the Music business deals with and that is in order to get some radio play you gotta more or less sound like what is happening in music at the time. when R got in the fame Teddy Riley and Guy were the big thing in R&B along with New Jack swing,Bobby Brown,MC Hammer. Aaron Hall was too much of a Loose Cannon. Now He co Wrote Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative",but he often ran his mouth made alot of industry enemys and he was sure of himself that he put Teddy Riley under the bus amongest others. now he had a legit beef against R.Kelly at first,but R wrote bigger hits and just kept on doing his thing. but Aaron was never much as a solo artist. all of his main moments were with Guy.

    anyway as to this song the only thing that Quincy Jones did to the song was add the Fender Rhodes. R already was doing that Smooth Jazz Sax stuff on his previous Productions for otherrs. Quincy Jones always takes the Production credit on his albums. that is part of his tag.

    Rod Temperton wrote "Slow jams" with that line give me everything that R.Kelly Sings. it was all business.

    ^I remember this joint! I still bump it to this day! Maxxx, remember the videos they would play on VH1 Soul every friday night? When Tamia first came on, and that "slow jams" joint was always on? Damn, whatever happened to the good ol' days? Midnight Love dedications? VH1 Soul? I miss them days...

    I really like this song. I thought Kellz killed his verse, I love the beginning of it where he goes "When the sun comes up, I'll tell you I love you". It was nice to see these R&B artists collaborate on this song. The girl's voice is Naomi Campbell's, according to the credits I think.

    This is from Quincy in the Jook Joint and From Q With Love booklets:
    This is serious "sweet brown butter with a beat." I first met R. Kelly when Barry Hankerson finally took me to meet him while he was buried in a studio in Miami. It made me so happy when I heard my homeboy from Chicago had consented to visit the Jook Joint with this posse of soul singers - Ron Isley, Charlie Wilson from the Gap Band and Aaron Hall. When I first heard the demo on this tune, it had all the classic R. Kelly elements: a hypnotic pocket, a strong Fender Rhodes ostinat and a very seductive chant which he introduces and later passes on to Naomi Campbell, whom I kidnapped from The Fashion Cafe. Work with this for a minute or two.
    A lot of work went into this track, and I'd bet that Q's camp actually took R. Kelly's demo and re-recorded a lot of the instruments; they obviously added the sax to it. According to the linear notes, arrangement was by Q, R, Jerry Hey (who does synths and horns mostly) and Rod Temperton (which is a kinda neat addition, if you stop and think about it). A lot of heavy weights and R pulled together for this one.

    [Interesting side note; Q's Jook Joint says produced by Quincy Jones and R. Kelly, after that (eg. From Q, With Love) it always says Produced by Quincy Jones, Co-produced by R. Kelly.]
