New York City, NY – R. Kelly’s is probably going experiencing one of many roughest months of his life within the wake of Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docu-series — and it’s not over. According to TMZ, RCA Records (a subsidiary of Sony Music) has pushed pause on any new music from the singer.
Although Kelly continues to be obligated to contractually launch two extra albums underneath the imprint, sources say they won’t put any assets into his present catalog or launch any of his new music till the latest open investigation towards him within the state of Georgia is resolved.
This would stop Kelly from taking fast benefit of the improve in digital streams he skilled following the Surviving R. Kelly premiere. Many followers appeared to have little interest in canceling his music. Conversely, a big portion of these performs had been presumably listeners revisiting his catalog with a contemporary perspective.
Kelly’s final album launched through RCA was 2015’s The Buffet, which was the bottom charting — and promoting — album of his profession.
