    Default are R.Kelly's hit songs his best songs?

    i ask this question because he does the usual medley with When a Woman loves thrown in as it is a modern day hit,etc..

    question asked is pick your favorite R.Kelly Album and is the hit or the hits depending on the album, the cut you first acknowledge or have you been the fan that likes to point out other tracks and say this song is just as good or even better to you?

    for instance on the self title album, while down low and u remind me,can't sleep are tight cuts, trade in my life and religous love easily can hang.

    on the Happy People album I love the title track, however weatherman and Ladies night treat her liek heaven are my main cuts and easily hang.

    Not always I co-sign you with the Happy People example, you can say the same on U Saved Me... When I Think About You, I Surrender, How Did You Manage all up there with the title track. TP.3 Kicking It With Your Girlfriend >>> TITC Pt. 1, Happy Summertime >>> Playas Only... So it's really a hard decision but my opinion is gonna be a strong No because on every album I can possibly fine a song better than the hit singles. It's hard to choose on 92-03 albums though

    I would have to say no. I always look for the tracks not played. for instance on Chocolate Factory, I thought at that time if he put out "You Made Me Love You", "Dream Girl", "You Knock Me Out", those wouldve been GREAT videos or singles. (those songs wouldve been great for todays Love Letter) I think definitely if had been a video for "Showdown" w/that whole concept of the song, that wouldve been EPIC. I always thought Kelly wouldve been better off going w/different songs from any album. had TITC been left off TP3 & came out as an album/dvd to itself, TP3 wouldve been a better album overall. "Religious" off Untitled wouldve been a great single & video. also Echo if a "REAL" video had been done lol, & so on & so forth in my opinion.

    Wawl is a rare exeption, usually the best songs are not singles, usually to have a hit single at radio it has too be simple yet catchy, not classic from a music perspective

    I think some time ago I almost got into it with V.I.P when I said that R. Kelly's fans prefer the songs left as album cuts to his official singles as those are the ones where he really shows he's not on anyone else's level.

    Born Into The 90s - She's Loving Me
    12Play - Seems Like You're Ready+For You+....(12Play)
    R. Kelly - Baby,Baby,Baby...+Religious Love+Tempo Slow+Trade In My Life
    R. - Suicide+What I Feel (The Issues)+Reality+Looking For Love
    TP2 - Greatest Sex
    Choc. Factory - Heart of A Woman+I'll Never Leave+Been Around The World+You Made Me Love You+Forever+Ignition (original)
    LL - Loveland
    HP/USM - Love Street+Ladies Night+If I Could Make The World Dance
    R in R&B - Touched A Dream
    TP3 - In The Kitchen
    DU - Real Talk+Best Friend+Sex Planet (without the intro Hidden Content )
    Untitled - Elsewhere+Religious
    Epic - Victory+Fireworks
    Ali Soundtrack - Hold On
    Love Letter - Number One Hit+Lost In Your Love+Radio Message+Music Be A Lady+How Do I Tell Her

    Agree with what you all said, the man is a genius, some of his best work was not even an album, there is third feeling on your booty remix that I was crazy about, also there is heaven chose you, from love land somethings never change, you bring me joy etc, and also don't forget the soundtrack songs that were not singles like hold on, up and out of here etc, there just too much to say I can go on all day.

    No, on nearly every one of his albums my favourite song was not released as a single, 12 Play and R. Kelly are probably the only exceptions (Your Body's Callin + Down Low)

    No not really...On the Chocolate Factory, my fav song was "Imagine That." and I agree with another post that "U saved me" is one of the best songs he's ever recorded.

    Was driving today and Up N Outta Here from the Shaft soundtrack came up on my Ipod and got me thinking that a song as good as that deserved to be a hit. I think he has had plenty of great album and soundtrack cuts which would have been good enough to have been hits for most artists. Hell Loveland was full of classics which will never become hits... That's a shame

    I think you hit the nail on the head. Radio-friendly songs are usually simple to entertain the masses, who don't give a damn about musical quality. I'm not talking about Rob of course, because his songs (even the hits) are quality material, but his hit songs are definitely not his best songs. And I agree, "When A Woman Loves" is a wonderful exception. Hidden Content
