I’m slowly inching closer to enjoying R. Kelly’s music again without all the psychodrama that surrounds it. A big reason for that is the fact that the music has actually been good. His last album, the Grammy nominated Love Letter, was the R’s best work in a good fifteen years. Not coincidentally, it was the most pure R&B record he’d made since then. Nice to know that, in his forties, Kelly has sort of dropped the R&B-thug persona and is concentrating strictly on singing…something he still does pretty well.
Anyway, “Share My World” is his latest single and video. The song itself is pretty fun, with a definite Philly soul vibe. The video is bleh…nothing too exciting except for the fact that the light scheme here is at least distracting and at most positively blinding.
