    I refuse to be disappointed w/ anything regarding this album. I've always lked Kells best when he goes the direction of songs like TOUCHED A DREAM, or a lot of those unreleased LOVELAND joints. At 40, yeah, I'd like to see a more mature progression, but you know what, I cant front, shit is still hot. Music like I'MA FLIRT is a guilty pleasure. Cant wait til May.

    strobelight News about Double Up

    New R. Kelly LP Includes Akon, Jeezy, 'Flirt' — But No 'Closet' Till July

    Album also features Snoop, Luda, several outside producers.

    By Shaheem Reid

    If you're wondering why Bow Wow doesn't appear in the video for his R. Kelly-featured song "I'm a Flirt" — even though the song appears on Bow's latest album, Price of Fame — well, it's because the video version is a remix. And that Bow Wow-less remix is now the official first single from R. Kelly's new album, Double Up, now due May 29.
    Kelly's version features T.I. and T-Pain, and as the Pied Piper's camp tells it, the King of R&B (he actually wears a crown in the new video) had single rights to the song all along; it's an unlisted bonus track on Bow Wow's LP, and his label was barred from promoting the song to radio. However, that hasn't stopped it from getting airplay: In an unusual twist, Billboard is counting the two versions as one song on its singles charts, credited, a little confusingly, to "Bow Wow or R. Kelly (featuring T.I. & T-Pain)".
    Tip and Pain are just a sample of the star power that Kells has rounded up for his LP. Young Jeezy, Akon, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Pharrell have all collaborated with the singer already, and Kelly's camp says he is still recording and just might pull in another major player from the Midwest for the project.
    Unlike most of the R's albums, on this one he has opened up some of the production and songwriting duties to outsiders. Newcomer Lil Ronnie (who has also worked with Ruben Studdard) produced the "Flirt" remix, while award-winning songwriter Sean Garrett (Usher, Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé) also loaned his pen to a couple of songs. The Runners, known for their production on Rick Ross' Port of Miami as well as Young Jeezy's Kelly-assisted "Go Getta," have also supplied some tracks.
    "It was definitely an honor to work with the R, especially since he doesn't work with too many producers on his albums," said half of the Runners, Andrew "Dru Brett" Harr.
    "He really gets into his songs," added Harr's partner, Jermaine "Mayne" Jackson. "On one song, he set up a pulpit in the vocal booth, just to get that church feeling. He really looked like a preacher on Sunday."
    And, to answer the question of all the fans who want to see more of Sylvester and all the "Trapped in the Closet" players, there is more to come. The next chapters won't be included on Double Up, but there is a DVD coming out in July that will continue the R&B soap opera (see Hidden Content ).
    Over the past few weeks, Kelly has kept his profile on the upside with a string of song cameos, including the original "Flirt," "Go Getta" and Fat Joe's "Make it Rain" remix.

    I think it's great that Kellz has opened the door for some other producers on his cd....he has nothing to prove everyone knows he's done 100% of all his writing and producing for over 10 years and it's great that he's giving other opportunities to shine and work with the King of R & B.

    if the labels forcing him into doing things he doesnt want to make then why doesnt he just leave the label. most artists leave labels because their being falsed into doing things they dont want to do.


    And this MV thing is probably never going to happen lets be seriousHidden Content



    and by the way what has r. kelly contributed to R&B in the last 3 years...hes last big thing was HP/USM and that was good...other than that he hasnt written or produced anything thats very good except 'one night' and probably "i'm a flirt" (yeh i do like that song Hidden Content ) and some exceptions





    When he said that i didnt doubt him at all but now it seems as if hes doing everything be the king of hip hop...




    Said it all.
    He probably has a contract with jive for 15 albums or something like that, so he can't just drop out without paying a huge load of money...
    I called the number and listened to 2 song snippets just to get an impression of double up, but it kinda disappointed me... It's mainstream, that's what it is... It won't make history, it'll just be a good selling album, which everyone will have forgotten in a couple years...
