Editorial Reviews

Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and producer R. KELLY, will release his 11th studio album, Write Me Back, on June 26TH (RCA).

Write Me Back is the follow up to 2010's critically acclaimed Love Letter, which celebrated the music of the 50s and 60s. The new album represents the natural progression of Kelly's musical time machine, recalling the sultry and seductive sounds associated with such icons as Barry White, Marvin Gaye and Teddy Pendergrass, among others. Like its Love Letter predecessor, Write Me Back is also a celebration of love.

From classic R&B to hip-hop, inspirational to gospel, no other artist has covered the vast array of human emotions more than R. Kelly. With a track record that boasts over 40 million albums sold worldwide, 6 #1 albums, 11 #1 singles, 3 Grammy Awards, 8 Soul Train Awards, 6 American Music Awards and 6 Billboard Music Awards, R. Kelly has rightfully earned his title as the undisputed "King of R&B." In 2011, Billboard named R. Kelly the #1 most successful R&B artists of the last 25 years! When not in the spotlight, Kelly has written and produced hit songs for Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Maxwell, Britney Spears and countless others. More recently, Kelly was tapped to write and produce original music for the upcoming Sparkle soundtrack.

Oh my goodness. With this CD, R. Kelly has just cemented himself as one of the greatest R&B artists of all time. I just don't know where to begin. The lyrics are superb. The arrangements are superb. The production is superb. The writing is superb. The singing is superb. The rhythm of every song on the CD is superb. The choice for the order of the song list is superb. It is nothing short of masterful and it is what perfection should, and does sound like. I am too impressed.

In this CD, R. Kelly pays homage to some of the greatest R&B artists of our time. You will experience the flavor of Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Ron Isley, Michael Jackson, a little bit of Ray Charles and yes, even some Little Anthony. He does this all while at the same time keeping it incredibly spicy and current. The beats are funky as heck.

Dear Mr. Kelly, I'm writing you back. This is real music and it is truly received with love and appreciation. Thank you R. Kelly for your hard work on the production of this CD and for putting the `R' and `B' back into R&B. For sure, you are the master of rhythm!

Format: MP3 Music
R. Kelly's last album, LOVE LETTER, felt like a throwback: as much influenced by modern music as it was influenced by mo-town and classic R&B. From the first track of WRITE ME BACK, R. Kelly announces that he hasn't forgotten the past. This album takes lessons from the past and gives them a slick, modern production. Who says pop music has to be vapid? The songs here on WRITE ME BACK feel authentic, from the heart, and retro.

"Love Is" is a throwback to the origins of Motown; it's seductive, loving, and soulful. "Feelin' Single" is another great song that takes what was great about past R&B and refines it. "Lady Sunday" feels like an homage to Marvin Gaye -- flutes in the background, great harmonies, flowing rhythm. Some of these songs are more modern than others: "Believe in Me" is excellent, marked by pianos and Kelly's delivery. R. Kelly is so confident in his work; lead single "Share My Love" is a disco song. It wouldn't sound out of place for Donna Summer to have this instrumentation as a backing track. It's a good song, but not the best of the album. The first half of the album feels a bit better than the second half of the album -- it's hard to beat the 1-2-3 punch of those first three songs.

Anyone who enjoyed LOVE LETTER should check out this new release. Anyone who was annoyed by Kelly's more soulful work might be able to skip this one: there's no "Ignition" or "Down Low" here. Standout tracks to sample/download: "Feelin' Single," "Lady Sunday," and "Believe in Me."

Additional Release Info: The deluxe version of WRITE ME BACK comes with 4 extra songs: "Beautiful In This Mirror," "You Are My World," "Fallin' From The Sky," and "One Step Closer." Fans of Kelly should check out this edition, but casual fans could probably stick with the normal edition.

Disclaimer: I am writing this review based on the deluxe edition of 'Write Me Back'

After seeing reviews on this album, I thought I would put my 5 cents in. I am not going to do a review of each song because it is plenty already posted. Instead, I am going to do just an overview. With that being said...if you like albums TP3 Reloaded and/or Double Up, this album isn't for you. If you like Love Letter, Happy People, Untitled,, then you will enjoy this little journey down memory lane. For those who have been paying attention, R. Kelly has paid homage here and there all they way back to the 12 Play album. He set his fans up by letting them know on the Untitled album that he was about to change it up. Write Me Back takes you through the generes that helped formed the artist we know as R. Kelly today! He brung out the music your mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa listened to and perfected it well. Each song takes you down memory lane but at the same time he still has that R. Kelly flavor in each song! This album is different from the norm and should be appreciated from what is currently being played on the radio. R. Kelly was right when he said this kind of music is lacking because IT IS! Once you hear the first beat to the first track, your soul immediately becomes appreciative. You will hear the sounds of Stevie Wonder, The Spinners, Barry White, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Smokie Robinson, Ray Charles, just to name a few. Don't take my word for it. Listen to some tracks and get a feel for it. Yes, this is different from the R. Kelly we are ALL use to but EVERY artist likes to reach out and do music that they ALWAYS wanted to do...Raphael Saadiq did it so why not R. Kelly. Take a seat, lay back, relax your mind, and let the music soothe your soul and massage your ears! Enjoy!

I looked forward for the CD release after I heard Share My Love--this song is HOT!! R. never disappoints, but I was expecting to let the CD grow on me since I had not heard other songs. That is NOT the case with Write Me Back. The entire CD is a hit in itself. After I listened to Love Is, Feeling Single and Lady Sunday--three awesome songs in a row--R. only got BETTER. When I listened to Fool For You, I checked the music credits because it sounds like R. is doing a collaboration with Smokey. However, it's R. performing at a level we have not heard before and with each song he only gets BETTER. I hope this CD gets a lot of play and exposure so folks will know that R. IS BACK IN A VERY BIG WAY. Write Me Back show cases the talent and versatility of a true artist. Thank you R.

R Kelly, man my favorite singr ever, but these traks are basic and boring
If you heard his Love Letter album this album should be of no surprise. This album is simply homage to the greats past and I think he pulls it off quite well. Been listening to him since 1997 and what most fans should realize is that he's an entertainer, meaning he can touch different genres.... Read More
