Trapped in the Closet returns to IFC this fall

R. Kelly fans have a lot to look forward to. First, of course, there’s his return to the closet. Yeah, you know that he is working on a whole bunch of new chapters of his epic hip hopera Trapped in the Closet, which will premiere right here on this very channel this fall. Now comes the news that he is plotting an equally epic North American tour called, naturally, “The Single Ladies Tour.”

Plus, R. Kelly is working on some new musical material, which he promises will be less love and a lot more lust. Yeah, R. Kelly is back. “When you’ve done twentysomething years, man, of giving people what they want, and satisfying people — people like to say they’re making babies off your music, they’re doing all this — it makes me feel good, but at the same time, it makes me say, ‘OK, now it’s time to go and do something that’s in me that I want to do and get out,’” he said in an interview with the Washington Post. But now that he has the excellent, but lovey dovey “Write Me Back” and 2010’s “Love Letter” out of his system, Kells promises that the new album will mark a return to the Kells we know and love best, according to the AP story. “The name of my next album is Black Panties– that’s my next 12 Play” he said. “I’m going to have some fun on it.” Hells yeah, Kells.

While the singer writes new songs, he is also working on new material for Trapped in the Closet. He’s been filming in Chicago and told the AP that there are new characters and more surprises in store for fans, plus an explanation of what the mysterious “package” is (FINALLY!).
