*R. Kelly says his next album will be a departure from his usual R&B sound.
While on stage at the Chosen Few DJs Picnic event in Chicago, the 47-year-old musician told the crowd: “I want y’all to know a secret, I’m working on a house album right now, and I want y’all to know, it’s coming.”
As the audience cheered, the crooner added: “And y’all know, I love music and I feel like I can do anything when it comes to music because I am music just like y’all.”
Kelly has yet to reveal any other details, but could be set to bring in the biggest names in dance after previously collaborating with pop legends such as Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Jay Z and P. Diddy.
In addition to his house project, the singer is working on a follow-up to his last album which will be called “White Panties,” and is so far set to feature Justin Bieber.
He also has plans for a festive album entitled “The 12 Nights Of Christmas.”
