    whatever We hope...

    I think the only thing that will make R Kelly go back to soul music is if there is a new popular soulful male singer with a similiar sound to his...

    Then that will be the new trend and Robert will latch on.

    See when Kellz started back in the 90's he had a lot of singers like him to feed off of... Like Aaron Hall, Jodeci, Keith Sweat, Al B Sure, Bobby Brown. Now that type of music has died out.

    Not until that trend resufaces and people begin to buy more of that kind of music will Robert feel compelled to go back.

    do the soulful thing and just bring it period. these last two albums had a few good moments,but were half baked IMO. aside from Slow Wind and a couple of other tracks, trapped in the Closet have dominated Kellz world since 05 and it's time to bring the Soul all the way. another album like Tp3 or Double Up and He will be barely going gold. He knows that he has to bring the rawness of soul next album out.

    you still have Brian Mcknight and Joe who are peers of his. it's all based on what is selling in the industry. Kellz does play the role of Musician/Politician from alot of time to time. you are right if a Maxwell was to come back correct then Kellz would drop that Babies making set ASAP.

This time, I'm gonna do the way I want and can care less about the public and even fans. It'd be exciting if he "betrays" us, I mean surprises us in a good way. Might be less commercial, but the kind of album that even non-hardcore fans themselves gradually and naturally, if not instantly, form a group of buyers by spreading words to leads up to show word-of-mouth power on the album charts.
    Wasn't HP/USM that album?

    Yeah, it was close. I'm hoping for more radical album from him. Soulful thing will come in full effect in that kind of set along with other elements. It can be like quiet storm that the longer days go by after its release, the more impact it has along with more sales. A steady seller that turns out to be one of the biggest selling albums that year. The kind of album that folks themselves really feel deep down inside and without much promotion, can dominate the scene and got the whole industry rocking. I'm being more of a dreamer here, but I don't think it's an elusive dream becuz he's R.Kelly.

    True Helena, an album that initially might not sell a lot of copies due to being non-commercial, but then turns out to have steady sales for a long period of time ... That would be great. Then again, as I have said before a couple of times, I really don't care for sales anymore, as long as the music is powerful.
    Yeah, HP/USM was a non-commercial album, and that's probably why it was his last masterpiece so far. It's been three years now.

    even tho us "hardcore" fans would have preferred a soulful R.Kelly the man knows that in order to keep in longevity going he had to identify with the new generation.

    Smart man.
    I understand what you're saying about reaching a new generation. But at this point we gotta keep it real: Did he really reach the new generation with TP.3 and Double Up ? I doubt it., because both albums 'only' went platinum and the majority of the people that bought it were probably 'hardcore fans', like us. So, the strategy to gain a new group of fans failed in my opinion and R. Kelly got in danger to loose some of his old fans. As you said before "that fans have spoken". Speaking of sales, I don't know the exact numbers, but as far as I know HP / USM sold as much as TP.3 and Double Up (1x Platinum). And HP/USM, was the etreme opposite, namely non-commercial. Now CF was straight, souflul R. Kelly and went 2 or 3 times platinum. Keeping in mind that this album was the first that came out after the case started, these numbers speak volumes about what fans or the audience in general wants from Kells. Money's at where the soul is at, the last two albums proved that to me and I hope also to R. Kelly and the people at Jive Records.

    Man, this is a powerful post Mixmaster. You said it all and best. Much props to you!

    As for overall responses here, I believe casual fans outside the forum who have bought his albums in the past also feel the same way. Last time mistermaxxx brought up the similar topic, it became a long thread that has heartfelt feedbacks.
