R. Kelly is letting the music speak. The R&B legend’s personal life and allegations of sexual misconduct filled headlines last year, but Kellz is staying positive, while also celebrating his own contributions to people’s lives too.
In a series of in-studio video clips that he posted to his social media, the singer/songwriter has previewed a brand new song called “Born To My Music.” Joined by singer/actor Tyrese in the clips, the two pretend to play guitars while the music plays in the background.
“Y’all thought I was playing? 2018…its a wrap. ?,” wrote Kelly on Instagram. Adding, “@tyrese I don’t think they ready?! #borntomymusic ?.”
Robert is quite aware and honored that many listen to his music in the bedroom and he can confidently say that a lot of ’90s babies were even made to his music.
“I heard people say, that come what may, you are the king / And it feels so good to hear them say your music has touched me,” he sings. “Here’s to all the ’90s babies, single mothers and daddy’s babies / Whether rich or whether poor, this is who this song is for / Cause I know that you were born to my music … Generations, populations, you were born to my music.”
Later he adds, “I feel so blessed to be apart of all your memories / So grateful to be apart / Touching the whole world’s heart.”
This past Saturday (Jan. 6), R. Kelly surprised the Microsoft Theater audience in Los Angeles when he came out to perform a quick set during Xscape’s final show of “The Great Xscape Tour.” It appears the singer has new music on the way this year.
