    Default Songs written by Kells that others sang better than him

    Okay, there's not many I can think of here! In fact, the only one that I've heard where I think the guy Kells gave it to did a better job than him, is More and More by Joe. That's very high praise for Joe because Kells original is very good, but I absolutely love Joe's version, especially the ad-libs at the end.

    I don't think Joe's version of Make You My Baby from the same album is better than Kells original though.

    Other than that, I can't really think of any. I do think Jaheim was on par with Kells on Hush/Keep It On The Low.

    Yeah, I agree on the "Hush Hush" song from Jaheim. this one really fits him better.
    I also think that "One Day On this Earth" from Brutha is a bit better than Kellz solo version...

    but other than that there's not much I can think of right now, cause I always prefer Kellz' own versions...and that's why I hate when he gives songs like "I look to you"(Whitney) or "I need an angel" (Rubben Studdard) to others.

    I agree, at least he sould leak his own recording! The youtube clip where he plays I Look To You in the studio shows how good that one would be if he did it

    for my money he wasn't gonna out sing Michael Jackson, Ronald Isley and Charlie Wilson, and Whitney in her prime naw. after that you got some interesting debates and he would win 7 out of 10.

    kc and jo-jo doing life it is hard to say. when them hailey boys cared they were badd.

    Yeah, I think the Haileys nailed 'Life'... I hate to say it but I'm not sure Rob would have done a better job on 'Life' and 'Fortunate'

    well that's not what this thread is about I guess. There are no R. Kelly versions of "Fortunate" or "Life"...this is only about songs which R. Kelly has a own version out. everything else is just speculation.

    im probably very bias, but theres not a single song that i think another person has sung better.

    i do however think hush suits jaheims voice!
    but u cant beat having kells version of the song!

    I always saw people post that Joe's version of More & More was better. I like R. Kelly's better because it was raw an uncut.
