    12 Play made him a R&B icon.

    R. made him a Pop icon.

    Where do I begin?

    I believe I can fly was from the space jam soundtrack and made it onto the R album AFTER the space jam album dropped and took off....

    The album that made him an icon? 12play of course......

    You can sing "Bump n Grind" "your bodys calling me" "it seems like your ready" (which was the theme song to a episode of NY Undercover)......

    Those classics paved the way to the R album.

    Now no one is a bigger supporter of the R album than me BUT without those songs R. wouldn't have jumped off.

    I would have to disagree. To the R&B listeners yes, but when you compare sales from 12 Play which was about *6 million to R. Kelly, *5 million up to R, *8 million. based on those numbers i'm guessin that album is what took him mainstream with that song being a major reason even though it was from Space Jam (as well as I'm Your Angel). unfortunately, no album has come close to that since.

    12 play did the thing, though the R Double Album cemented his place and CHocolate Factory brought him to a whole new era and made him shine even more.

    What album only sold 4 million? R. sold 8 million in the states alone. Overall, it sold 10 million worldwide. I also disagree that R. would've tanked without the success of 12 Play. R. Kelly was already an established act by the time he released R. album.

    FOUR MILLION units of a TWO-DISC album = 8 TIMES PLATINUM

    Each UNIT that has TWO DISCS counts as TWO sold.....

    RIAA recognizes multiple disc albums as selling more than a single disc album
