1. 10. “Fiesta” with Jay-Z (2000)
R. Kelly was in the middle of this self-reinvention tour, and he came back strong with cornrows and a new sound.
2. 8. “Thoia Thoing” (2003)
This has to be one of the most fun videos that he’s done. Could it get any better than practicing martial arts in a Japanese basketball jersey?
3. 7. “Step in the Name of Love” (2003)
Thanks to this song and video, Kells was responsible behind the resurgence of stepping and white parties all across America. The Essence Music Festival should thank him.
4. 5. “I Believe I Can Fly” (1996)
Man, can we talk about the “Space Jam” soundtrack for a second and how epic it was? This video was just as good, and who doesn’t like a good song or video with a choir?
5. 3. “World’s Greatest” (2002)
This video was visually appealing. Who doesn’t love a good black and white with a splash of color?
6. 2. “If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time” (1999)
Possibly the most cinematic of his videos, R. Kelly made you feel his pain as every photograph that fell to the ground.
7. 1. “Down Low” (1995)
