After rumors and brief comments about the possibility of 5 different types of albums, R. Kelly has returned with The Buffet, his thirteenth studio album.
Lead by his summer jam “Backyard Party” and “Switch Up” featuring Lil Wayne and Jeremih, the 13-track album boast appearances from Jhené Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, and Tinashe. The deluxe edition adds five tracks including the WizKid-assisted “I Just Want to Thank You.”
According to Kellz he recorded 462 songs for the project, which caters to his diverse fanbase. “You got hip-hop, you got old school music with the ‘Step in the Name of Love’ type music, ‘Happy People’ type of music, then you have traditional R. Kelly sensuous, sexual music,” he said of the follow-up to 2013’s Black Panties.
You can pick up The Buffet on iTunes now and stream it below via Spotify.
