Over the years, he’s crossed genres working with artists such as Celine Dion and defied all R&B bounds with the “Trapped in the Closet” series. Now, he’s worked with Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber, and he is excited to bring everyone the new “hotness” of R&B.
R. Kelly on working with Lady Gaga:
Well it’s simple. I had a show about two months ago. And [Gaga] was there and she came backstage. I went on stage and she was on the side chilling while I did my show. After that, we chopped it up for a minute and she asked me to do a song that she had and wanted me to get on it. I’m like ‘Man, give it to me…I can’t wait to hear this,’ because it [was] like ‘What is this gonna sound like?’ you know what I mean?
When she sent it, it was so hot. And when we got together, she’s so hot! I’m like- I’m hot, we [so] hot can’t nothing happen but hotness! So it just worked out. I’m feeling good about it!
