made the first of his two scheduled appearances on Jimmy Fallon last night. There wasn't a performance of "Trapped in the Closet," but he did preview a song from his forthcoming album Love Letter
. The Grammy-nominated tune, entitled "When a Woman Loves," is broken into three sections: a slow one, the dramatic ending to said section, and a fast one.
Our usual source for the video embed, The Audio Perv
, seems to be having issues (their video kept leading me to the pre-order page for Love Letter
... IT'S A TRAP!), and youtube posts are dropping like flies due to copyright claims, but we'll have video of the performance as soon as we can.
releases December 14th. The album will be a tribute to soul greats like Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, so it should be interesting, especially if "When A Woman Loves" is any indication. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more R. Kelly on Fallon tomorrow night... maybe we'll get a performance of "Trapped in the Closet" after all. -peter menniti
