The sound of disco is more relevant now in music than it has been in last two decades. For instance, take a listen to R. Kelly‘s first single, a Marvin Gaye-Sam Cooke influenced track called “Share My Love,” from his upcoming album Write Me Back which is scheduled for release this March.
However… the single, which infuses disco strings, a mid-tempo beat, and baby-making lyrics that could very well get you and your partner in the right mood, still doesn’t add up to Kelly’s full potential. This is not the music I like to hear from him. I understand Kels is trying to grow with his music, and his fan base, but I think he should take it back (circa ’99) for us. Truthfully speaking, over the last few years he’s provided us with only a few hits, but nothing to really ‘wow’ the industry.
Take a listen:
Get it together, Kels!
