Working with several renowned names, R. Kelly is prepared for the release of his brand new album "Double Up".
Within a short time, R. Kelly's new album "Double Up" will be out on May 29. It would be his thirteenth studio album and is pretty much star studded.
The first single released is "I'm a Flirt (Remix)" featuring T.I. and T-Pain. Many people are wondering why Bow Wow who has the same track in his album "The Price of Fame" (2006) is not featured in the video. It turns out that Bow Wow's version is a bonus track and its promotion to radios is prohibited. R. Kelly is actually the one who has the song's rights even though in billboard it is listed as 'Bow Wow or R. Kelly (featuring T.I. & T-Pain)'.
Beside T.I. and T-Pain, Kelly also includes Young Jeezy, Akon, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell Williams and Ludacris to collaborate with him. The names behind the production and song writing are also quite reputable such as Lil Ronnie who has worked with Ruben Studdard, Sean Garrett who has worked with Usher, Jamie Foxx and Beyonce Knowles and also hip hop producers duo, The Runners who is known for its work in Rick Ross' "Port of Miami" (2006)
