There are a lot of things that come to mind when you say "R. Kelly." "Fiesta, fiesta;" "It's the freakin' weekend;" this
; Trapped in the Closet
; that whole business with teenagers; Aziz Ansari's stand-up describing R. Kelly faux-ejaculating on his audience. But one thing that absolutely does not come to mind: wholesome R&B (even though his 2010 Love Letter
was admittedly just that). Continuing the R&B epistle theme, Write Me Back
is Mr. Kelly singing jams at his most Barry White-est, and it's really too bad.
