The Province: Write Me Back Review

R Kelly subordinates his own image as a love man to morph into other singers. At various times, he’s Ray Charles,  Smokey Robinson, Al Green, Donny Hathaway Barry White or The Sound Of Philadelphia as he runs riot over decades of R&B, soul, even disco. For those who want the original R Kelly he is there in a track such as Feelin’ Single, but he seems to be having fun, so why stop him?. He also does these impersonations convincingly and, at a time when so much contemporary R&B is gimmicky and overdone, Write Me Back is refreshing.

Grade: B
