Do you want to know what went on behind the scenes in the life of one of the greatest R&B singer/songwriters of our generation? Well, here is your chance! R. Kelly is releasing his memoir next week! Kelly is dropping a memoir called “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me,” on June 28, and a new album, “Write Me Back,” on June 26th. The Pide Piper of R&B has a Today Show appearance and a Chicago book signing on July 14th but doesn’t plan to tour until the fall, according to the Sun-Times.
According to the book description, Kelly’s memoir “shares his life story through episodic tales and exclusive color photographs(David Ritz), exploring his meteoric rises and sudden falls.”
The album is a throwback follow-up to Kelly’s 2010 nostalgic release, “The Love Letter.” His last tour was magnificant, so I can’t wait for the next one. It will be interesting to see if he talks about his relationship with Aaliyah and what he reveals about his marriage. His ex-wife is appearing on the new show Celebrity Exes which premieres on VH1 next month. I wonder if he’s trying to get his side of the story out before she does? Either way, it should be interesting! Will you pick up his memoir?
