R.Kelly Presents New Video Footage For ‘Hip Hopera’ Music Series

October 18, 2012 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

Last week’s anthem featured the King of RnB himself and if you’ve been missing R.Kelly in the music circuit of late, especially after being reunited with his vocals and writing skills on G.O.O.D. Music’s track ‘To the World’ kick starting the Cruel Summer album, he is now returning with some new solo material.

As if anyone could forget the ‘Trapped In The Closet’ tracks that gave a musical story stemming from the results of a love triangle, Kells has returned with the 23rd chapter and plenty more still to come.

Paired with a trailer for visual effect, the artist’s latest work has evolved from the original five chapters which featured on his TP.3 Reloaded album back in 2005. This is now much greater than a song, with the addition of new characters and dramas unfolded along the way, this musical film series is described by R.Kelly as a ‘hip hopera’.

Next month the singer, songwriter and producer will release up to another 20 chapters for this dramatic, winding storyline as fellow Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving period.

What are your thoughts on his extended project?

We don’t know about you, but after seeing the footage we can’t wait to see what else R.Kelly has up his sleeve. Check out the behind the scenes footage below.
