This was R Kelly's first CD without Public Announcement. And believe me he did extremely well. Remember Kelly does almost everything by himself. The production, songwriting, mixing'. And he's brilliant as a multi-instrumentalist.
Every fan of R&B and soul will love this smooth laidback music. I mean who can forget classics like "Your Body's Callin'" and "Bump N' Grind". Songs that just make your head bounce. Don't forget The Best R&B-Song of 1993 "Sex Me", for its seductive, made-for-lovers-in-bed sound. Other very good low-tempo songs are "It Seems Like You're Ready", "For You" "12 PLAY" and "Sadie". The other songs are just outdated hiphop songs. But that doesn't stop me for giving this album 5 stars. It's R&B that he stands for and it shows. It was with the album "12 PLAY" that he acknowledged his real music and showed the world his enormous talent. Everyone who doesn't have this music are making a big mistake. You've been warned.

Who doesn't have this cd? This is like a required element of any r&b lover's collection. Of course R. Kelly is well known for his "bump-n-grind" kind of love songs... and this is the one that actually has it!! Anyone who wants to set the sexy scene with the right kind of music, here's what you must have!

I have got to say that this album has brought me back during my high school days. I grew up listening to him and other artist such as Keith Sweat. I remember attending to his concert in Radio City Music Hall performing with Salt-N-Pepper right after prom night.

Kelly does almost everything by himself. The production, songwriting, and mix's, etc.... and he's brilliant as a multi-instrumentalist.

Every fan of R&B and soul will love this smooth laid-back music. I mean who can forget classics like "Your Body's Callin'" and "Bump N' Grind". Songs that just make your head bounce. Don't forget The Best R&B-Song of 1993 "Sex Me", for its seductive, made-for-lovers-in-bed sound. Other very good low-tempo songs are "It Seems like You're Ready", "For You" "12 PLAY" and "Sadie". It was with the album "12 PLAY" that he acknowledged his real music and showed the world his enormous talent.

Overall "12 Play" is a very good album and although released in 1993, it can stand up to anything on the R&B market now. This is a very sexy album great for all kinds of lovers. I definitely recommend this to all Kelly fans.

12 Play is the debut album from R. Kelly. This album is great if you love R&B and sexual themes.

"Your Body's Callin", "Bump N' Grind", "Homie Lover Friend", "Summer Bunnies", "12 Play" and "Sadie" are my favorite songs. The rest of the album is good too.

R. Kelly has a very strong voice and he produces, writes and arranges all of his music which makes him a very versatile artist.

If your just getting into R. Kelly, I recommend these:

Chocolate Factory

TP-2.com

R.

The R In R&B Collection, Vol. 1

R. Kelly

Happy People/U Saved Me

and Robert's new album, TP-3 Reloaded is real good. Songs on that album that I recommend listening to are: "Playa's Only", all of the "Trapped In The Closet" chapters, "Remote Control", "Sex Weed" and "Sex In The Kitchen".

If you are a fan of R&B music there is no way you can give this album less than 5 stars. It's a classic. The crazy thing is it's not even R. Kelly's best album. That honour belongs to his self titled 1995 release.

12 Play boasts the smash hits Your Body's Callin and Bump N Grind. But it also includes other quality tracks like Summer Bunnies, Sex Me and It Seems Like Your Ready. There is also a great tribute song called Sadie which is a nice change up from the sexually charged theme of the album.

This album really launched the career of R. Kelly and put him on the map as one of the powerhouse r&b acts of the 1990's and early 2000's. High recommend.

He's Kels, he's the R in R&B, he's R, R. Kelly, and Robert Kelly. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the album that made him. It's called "12 Play". It was released in 1993, which was a very good year for Kelly. This is a must have album for any R&B fan, because R. Kelly did such a great job.

I enjoy listening to this album, the slower songs in particular. In fact, the faster songs sound very dated, and they are the key reason I could only give this album 3 stars. If this album was built on only his slower, sexier stars, it would easily be 5 stars. "Homie Lover Friend", and "Freak Dat Body" are examples of the dated material I am speaking of. Here, Kelly tries to rap, when, clearly, his forte is singing and producing. "Summer Bunnies" is the only up tempo song that is good. This is a very sexually driven piece of work, but that's alright, because R. Kelly is sexy and he knows how to croon. Well, he's a little more blatant than his colleagues like Jaheim, Donell Jones and Tevin Campbell. "Sex Me", "12 Play", "Your Body's Calling" and "Seems Like Your Ready" are so sensual, they would set the mood perfectly for a romantic evening.

Overall, this is a nice album and I recommend it to all!

Mikeisha's Top 5

1. Bump N Grind

2. Your Body's Calling

3. Sadie

4. Summer Bunnies

5. 12 Play
