R. Kelly wants fans to stay in touch when he drops his latest album, and we mean that literally.
The packaging for his upcoming release, “Write Me Back,” will include special postcards so that fans can do just that, according to Billboard.
Of course, this offering is the appropriately-titled follow-up to the R&B crooner's 2010 album, “Love Letter.”
R. Kelly has already given listeners a taste of his latest musical missive by way of two singles: “Share My Love,” which is currently sailing the Billboard R&B charts, as well as the recently released “Feelin’ Single,” which was released on Monday.
They signal a possible comeback for the singer in a very big way, as his long-awaited memoir, "Soula Coaster: The Diary of Me," is also expected to drop this summer.
R. Kelly's also launching a six-day "Love Letter" cruise from Miami in October, not to mention the return of his "Trapped in the Closet" series on IFC later on this year.

He is amazingly talented.
I know of no other celebrity who has done as much f cu ked up stuff with an underage girl as he has.
Kudos to you Robert. A fine roll model for the black community.
What about Roman Polanski?
CNN means: RK hopes teenage girls write him back.
I think that was Very RUDE and Disrespectful of the person that said "I thought he couldn't read?!" Smh! But like MOST Genuises, They ALL have "Hiccups" Robert can Read, maybe not as you want him too! Anywhoo! As a Strong Supporter of Roberts Music, I'm so Stoked of All of his Latest Endeavors, I can't wait for the New ALBUMS that will be coming out, as well as his Book, but last but not Least, THE LOVE LETTER CRUISE!!!! <3 YOU ROB! #1Supporter for LIFE! Muuuuuah! (=
Robert Kelly is the greatest and I too have all his albums. I cannot wait for Write Me Back, oh and I mosdef will write you back Kellz!!!!
I thought he couldn't read. So whose going to read the letters back to him?
I see the pro hose-down crew has spoken. Gs up, hose down.
He may not be perfect, but that doesn't take away the fact that this man is talented beyond compare. It is evident that you don't know about the great songs he's written for artists of various genres. Do your research! Now, what is your LEGACY????
Isn't this the 'artist' who's into child porn?
I don't think this article is about you...
R Kelly is the true King of R&B!!!! I am a true fan, i have all of his albums.
This is a talented musician. Every song he writes is a JAM whether slow or fast and I have ALL his music. LUV U ROBERT KELLY!!!! I am a DEDICATED fan who will STEP IN THE NAME OF LOVE to your music while men be FEELIN' ON MY BOOTY and I will STRIP FOR U anyday!!! Your my HONEY LOVE when I BUMP N GRIND because I just wanna SHARE MY LOVE but I can't so I'll just write you a LOVE LETTER!!!
Whatever you do, DO NOT accept showers from this man. Bad music, bad judgement, horrible human, perfect for hollywood. Go get him Kardashian ho's; we have finally found a talentless 'celeb' whos reputation YOU cant even further ruin!
You obviously know nothing about genuine music. This artist that you suggest is so horrible, continues to make hit after hit after hit. He has written for various artists such as Celine Dion and Maxwell, to name a few. How many artists can you name who can switch from R&B, where he reigns as King, to gospel to hip hop to Soul and back to R&B (he's the King)? Before you judge a person, you should really do your research and actually listen to their music. Also, the article was not about Robert Kelly's personal life, so those of you who are commenting on the old B.S., open your closets of skeletons and see just how many you have. No body is perfect, but Kelly's music is pretty darn close.
Love you Kells, I will certainly write you back! Thanks for all the good times and good vibes!
This guy is a disgrace. I can't believe we let people of such low moral fiber be seen by the children as a role model. I mean, how have we let society decay so far that this acceptable.
At least all the girls I peed on were of age.
He will be a star for many years.
he is a Legend and we hope he keeps up the Great work.
