For every big-name artist, there is at least one member of the opposite sex who develops a huge “celebrity crush,” attending each and every show and entertaining fantasies of being with their idol. Though most of these dreams never come true, the finally-acquitted R. Kelly wants to buck that trend; on this new record, he fantasizes about picking up his #1 Fan so he and she can make the sweet love he’s described in so many of his songs. Setting the mood is veteran producer Los Da Mystro (best known for helping make J. Holiday‘s Bed), who strikes a perfect balance between Kells’ legendary slow-jam feel and his own recent penchant for high-energy beats. Jive Records has been quiet about the status of R. Kelly’s forthcoming album, but if #1 Fan ends up on the tracklist, it would be a great single selection—it might even help the singer win back a few fans turned off by his legal troubles.
