Singer drops taster for new studio album 'Write Me Back'

R Kelly posts new single 'Share My Love' online – audio
R Kelly has posted his new single 'Share My Love' online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the track.

The song is taken from the controversial singer's new album 'Write Me Back', which is set to be released this May. Kelly, who had previously suggested that the LP would be called 'Black Panties' but subsequently altered the title, has said that the record will see him return to the sound of his 1993 debut solo record '12 Play' and will be an "R&B-like thriller album".

Last month, Kelly revealed that he had written 32 new chapters for his 'hip-hopera' 'Trapped In The Closet'. He also said that he was looking for investors to help fund recording for the project, which already has 22 existing chapters.

In November, meanwhile, the R&B star announced that he will embark on a Love Letter Cruise in October this year. He will take off on the five-day Caribbean jaunt next year - with tickets ranging in price from $999 (£645) to $2,999 (£1,930) – with onboard entertainment set to include gigs, salsa lessons and fashion shows.

R Kelly promoted the Love Letter Cruise on his Twitter account and seemed to hint that the trip would be repeated every year, telling his fans: "Come aboard and join me as I sail away on my first annual Love Letter Cruise."
