*We all know that R. Kelly is one certified freaky dude, but like the late, great Marvin Gaye, he’s also been gifted with an introspective spiritual side. Who else could write “Feelin’ On Yo’ Booty” and turn around create the beautiful and uplifting “I Believe I Can Fly?”

Well, we think he’s done it again with his new single “When A Woman Loves.” No, maybe it’s not a lofty as “I Believe I Can Fly,” but it sure feels good and he sounds terrific. It’s like he’s channeling his inner Percy Sledge.

Yes, we still have mucho reservations about the messenger, but we love the message.
