R. Kelly's new 'TP.3 Reloaded' album tells an adulterous tale
UPI News Service, 06/14/2005
Rapper R. Kelly's 10th album, "TP.3 Reloaded," has ignited a buzz with his "Trapped in the Closet," a five-chapter tale of adultery with a preacher's wife.
A host of Rap artists, including Snoop Dogg and the Game, make guest appearances on the 19-cut album due to be released July 5.
"Trapped in the Closet," which is being sent to radio stations sequentially and has sparked lively radio talk, details the morning-after drama of an affair with a minister's wife.
The five cuts are unusual in that they have only narration over low-key music.
"He wanted to do something unconventional (that recalled when) radio was an important part of people's lives," Zomba Label Group President-Chief Executive Officer Barry Weiss told Billboard.
Kelly co-directed and stars in a 16-minute video for "Trapped," which will premiere on BET.
