With this album, all R. Kelly glorifies is sex, money, and the club scene. I expected more maturity from Mr. Kelly because he is now 40 years-old. However, he is still trying to pass himself off as a 25 year-old thug. It's not working. I wanted to hear more things about real love, life, growing up, God, problems of the world and spiritual sex (not the physical type Kelly sings about). Songs like `Double Up' is about having sex with two women, `Tryin' to Get a Number' is about taking a girl home after the club, `Get Dirty' talks about watching strippers slide down the pole, `Leave Your Name' talks about getting too drunk to holla at a woman, so he wants her to leave her name, `The Zoo' is too funny for words and it goes on and on. `Real Talk' is a bit different because he is yelling at his girl for listening to her friends about him cheating. `Real Talk' may be different, but it's still annoying with all the cussing and stupidity. The only songs I like are `Havin A Baby', `Best Friend', and `I Like Love' and `Ooh Baby' (the latter two are available on the bonus version).
Double Up (explicit version) was released a week in advance, due to the album leaking on the Internet. Three songs are already in heavy rotation on radio, they are: I'm a Flirt (Remix), Same Girl, and The Zoo. My advice to Mr. Kelly is this: understand you are getting older and your fan base is getting older, too. Most of your fans are not interested in clubbing (they did that back in the 90s). Stop trying to appeal to the high schools kids and grow up!
DOUBLE UP, which is a hip-hop album for the most part as opposed to sensual sounding R&B. DOUBLE UP is much harder than any other R. Kelly album, in more ways than one. It is easily the most explicit album that Kells has ever made, saturated with the 'f-bomb' throughout. Also, there have never been so many guest spots from rappers on any of Kell's other affairs. Personally, I thought DOUBLE UP might be another misstep for Kelly, following the forgettable TP.3, which should've been phenomenal following the hype of "Trapped in the Closet". However, DOUBLE UP is actually Kelly's best album for awhile, even though it sadly sheds Kelly's sensual, R&B facade. Sure, there are a couple of straight, R&B tracks, but mostly, the album serves to celebrate Kelly's rekindled success, which has been in the area of hip-hop where his presence has helped to propel singles "That's That S***" (Snoop Dogg) and the more popular "Go Getta" (Young Jeezy).Read more ›
1) The Champ...terrible a 2 minute song about how everybody is jealous of him and against him. It was nothing more than bragging about being on top and "singing" about how he's on top and everyone hates him due to it. If this was hip-hop, that'd be okay. But it's not, it's r&b.
2) Double Up...He needs to grow up! A song about getting girls "dizzy" in the club and bringing them and their friend home with you. This is a completely meaningless song. Plan and simple. Again, if this was hip-hop you could brag about stealing another mans women or "doubling up" but it's not hip-hop it's r&b.
3) Tryin' to get a number...a pure disgrace. He tried to go pop-ish. Nelly is featured and Kellz does his best to sound like Nelly but realistically it sounds like it's Nelly's song and not Kellz! It's insanely commercial and focuses mostly on "steppin outta Hummer". What happened to songs like Greatest Sex and Strip for You?
4) Get Dirty...a song which features Chamillionair and a horrible effort by both. Again, commercial and meaningless.
Rather than going through the bad songs, the only good song I found were "Sweet Tooth", "Sex Planet", and "The Zoo". Everything else is subpar to average. I hope he bounces back strong. Regardless I will probably buy his next album just because of his legacy. All artists have bad albums, this is on of them.

|He's kinda old to be makin records like this now!!!||
R. Kelly isn't quite 40 yet... he's 38 or thereabouts. I understand your point and being an R. Kelly fan for years, I do see where you're coming from. Honestly, I'm digging the album, but then there are moments I will listen and think, where's "R.", "12 Play" or... Read More

|Downloaded the cd yesterday, here's what I thought of it...||
Yeah, I got an advance copy of the CD and it's so-so IMO. Too many guest stars & weak lyrics prevent me from REALLY enjoying 'Double Up'. R.Kelly is a 40+ year old man and he's still talking about Rollin in da club, *itches this *itches That, Hoes This Hoes that, Nigg** this Nigg** that. After... Read More

|Double Up Review - 4/5||
I agree after awhile it does get tired and he needs to change up a little but with that being said this CD is certainly better than TP.3 which was a huge disappointment. I do not think you will see songs like the ones you mentioned he wants to be a thug LOL.
