R. Kelly

R. Kelly

The self-described "Pied Piper of R&B," Robert Sylvester Kelly has built a career marked both by spectacular highs and devastating lows. Kelly has not only one of the finest voices but also one of the most vivid imaginations in pop, and the charms of his music lay in his love of absurd metaphors and his ability to sell them with his songwriting skills. Arguably the most important R&B figure of the 1990s and 2000s, Kelly has proven equally adept at earnest ballads like "I Believe I Can Fly" as he is at preposterous triple-entendre numbers like "The Zoo."
