Still In the W(Rapper): R.Kelly on the Comeback Trail

**I had meant to post these a week ago, but I was a bit pre-occupied with last week’s Caribanna preparations, also my sister came to visit :)**

My girl DJ HazelEyez wanted to make sure I showed this song some love in the Factory. R.Kelly is currently on the grind, trying to stay relevant in a changing R&B world. Kelly now has to compete with the real sex appeal and swag of artists like Trey Songz; the impossibly melodic creativity of artists like TheDream and the undeniable soul of artists like Maxwell. Kellz former unmovable fan base are moving in other directions so Robert has his work cut out for him in trying to gain them back. Out of This Club is a laid back dance track that Kelly originally recorded with pop group PCD (Pussycat Dolls) that is a bit repetitive at first, but grows on you all the same. This remixed version credits Fabolous as the guest Rapper on the track, although this does not sound like Loso to me – more like a Fabolous-sounding rapper. Still, I do like this track.

This next song has Kelly teaming up with Rising star Keri Hilson on the sexy duet, Number One. Kelly has sex on the brain in this song, boasting that his sex is the best, when it is with You. Keri holds her own on this song; her voice rides the track effortlessly and her lyrics are also on point. This song is reminiscent of  a duet Kelly did with Ciara for her Promise Remix they did a couple years back. Number One definitely stands out for me as a possible comeback song contender. Also, it doesn’t hurt to have a Keri feature, she is currently very Hawt right now!
