Kelly is not quitting music no matter what. According to Billboard, the just-released signee from Sony’s RCA Records has a new album already completed, and he is aiming to drop it as soon as possible.

The R&B singer became the talk of the town after the Lifetime Documentary Surviving R. Kelly aired, just three days into the new year. But the controversy surrounding him caused his streams to soar immensely by 116%. Not all good things came of it though; Sony dropped Kelly two weeks after the six-part series aired, and now the Trapped in the Closet singer is looking for distributors to release his new work.  Although R. Kelly recorded the album with Sony, the record label agreed to let him own the rights to his masters in agreement to release him.

Quite a few celebrities have expressed their disinterest in Kelly in or after the series such as John Legend, The Game, Common and so many more. Even artists who have worked with the “Ignition” artists like Lady Gaga, Chance the Rapper and B2K are retiring their songs with him in support of the victims. Is it safe to assume the project will have no features? We could potentially find out soon.
