R. Kelly Claims He Wrote 462 Songs For ‘Buffet’ & They’re All Hits


This is quite possibly the best headline of 2015.

The always humble Robert Kelly recently told Entertainment Weekly that his thirtieth (yes, as in 30) studio album, The Buffet, is almost done and will likely make its September 25th release date. His royal highness also told the publication that he has 462 songs completed for the album, and they’re all hits. Can we deny King Kells? I don’t think so. He also revealed that Buffet will include some country songs.

“Working overtime during the creation of The Buffet, Kelly’s thirteenth studio album. “I’ve done 462 songs for this particular album,” he says. “They’re not ideas, they are whole full songs. I wanted to be sure that I really nailed it to the point that when I started breaking it down to the 14, 15, 16 songs that go on the album that I had more than enough to choose from, and they would all be great choices…”

…“I wanted to cover a lot of different genres, and in order to do that you have to do a lot of work,” he says. “So there are about seven or eight country songs that I chose from in that category, and broke it down to one song out of those eight. So there is one country song on the album. I’m not doing all these different genres of songs just to do them. This is all the different types of music I loved growing up. For example, I’ve always said I’d love to do a blues song. I love blues. My grandfather did blues. I always loved country because country music tells stories, and I love telling stories as well. These styles of music really hit home for me, and that’s why I’m doing thisBuffet album.”

R. Kelly Announces Release Date for New Album ‘Buffet’


Pied Piper season has returned!

And it appears on September 25th, Kells is due to release his new album Buffet. Coincidentally, he’s doing a show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center the same night.

“Brooklyn, New York! I’m bringing my HITS to @BarclaysCenter the day my “Buffet” album comes out September 25th.”

We’re just two months out, so expect that single to impact sooner than later. Looking forward to this new one, I just hope he doesn’t make any comparisons to 12 Play. Again.

R. Kelly Plans to Call His New Album ‘Buffet’, Because R. Kelly


No, not “Buffett” like Warren Buffett or Jimmy Buffett. But “Buffet” like Ponderosa Steakhouse, or a place with all you can eat crab legs and shit like that. That kind of buffet. Of course, R. Kelly is titling his new album Buffet, because R. Kelly.

But if you were R. Kelly, why WOULDN’T you call your album Buffet? Why not? He keeps it “In The Kitchen” after all. But he’s not calling it Buffet for the reason you think. Not publicly, at least:

“It’s all you can hear. I’m 27 years deep in the business, I’ve been blessed to do this music for so long and I’ve got a lot of great songs under my belt, and fans love it. But, I’ve got all different kinds of generations of fans now, and I have to feed everybody. You’ve got Hip-Hop, you’ve got old school music with the Step In The Name of Love type, then you’ve got traditional R. Kelly, sensuous sexual kind of music. It’s just a variety of things, so I call it the Buffet.”
