R. Kelly just released his new album Black Panties this week, but the R&B genius is already hard at work on new music. In addition to his next studio album, which he is already working on, Kellz revealed his plans to release a classic holiday album entitled ‘12 Nights of Christmas.’
Speaking with Rap-Up TV recently, Robert explained that he started recording the album last year, but doesn’t plan to release it until 2014. “I started it last Christmas actually, but I don’t believe in just putting out a Christmas album just to sell records. It has to be the next ['This Christmas']. In order to get that and capture that moment, you have to take a couple of Christmases and then you come with it.”
In the meantime, he released one of his new holiday songs called “Christmas I’ll Be Steppin’” on The Best Man Holiday soundtrack.
He also revealed that he has seven or eight albums worth of material waiting to be released including the follow-up to Black Panties. “My next album is halfway written already,” revealed Kellz. “It’s gonna be another 12 Play album. It’s gonna be that type of album because there’s been a lovemaking album drought…and I’ve come to save the day.”
