R. Kelly Celebrates His Birthday in Song

+

Happy b-day, R. Kelly! Along with Elvis Presley and David Bowie, a Holy Trinity of crooners were born on January 8th. Like Elvis did, Kelly has a thing for (too) young women. And like Bowie, the man can dress. However the new song, “Happy Birthday,” is one of his worst. But no worries, Chicago’s piss-on-you R&B legend has about 300 good songs, including our personal fave “Ignition (Remix).” Do yourself a favor and sip on coke and rum and be like “so what I’m drunk” today in honor of the most entertaining black singer since Michael Jackson (RIP) and Prince. And yes, the “Fiesta (Remix)” single image above is the greatest record cover since Blind Faith.
