The self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B will release his 11th studio album, 'Love Letter,' this December.
The three-time Grammy Award winner's lead single 'What a Woman Loves,' which he wrote and produced, has already jumped from #8 to #3 on the Urban AC chart this week. It's become the third most-increased record at the format.
The song has been one of the 43 year-old Chicago native's career best – even earning the title of 'Pick of the Week' by USA Today. It was the highest chart bow by a male artist since Michael Jackson's 'This Is It,' which debuted at #16 last Oct. and it is Kelly's second-best career debut since 1999's 'If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time.'
A very special holiday remix of the track 'Love Letter Christmas' will be available in the coming weeks.
Earlier this year, R. Kelly recorded the 2010 FIFA World Cup official anthem 'Sign of a Victory' a song which he performed at the soccer tournament's opening ceremony in South Africa.
'Love Letter' is due in stores nationwide on December 14.
A remix to the track will be available as well entitled "Love Letter Christmas."
