This week, Chicago’s prodigal son, R. Kelly had the entire internet’s attention with the release date drama of his wild-titled memoir, but today he delivers his first post-throat surgery track. On “Shut Up,” which he posted to Twitter, he gives love to his fans and addresses the rumors of his financial issues. But the takeaway lyric is No offense to the other artists/ Come on, dog, let’s be honest/ But how many babies been made off me? His summation that Every boy, every girl/ Every child around the world/ From the ’90s until today was made off me is not statistically sound, but we’re so happy to have him back, we’ll let it slide.
