R. Kelly is still booking shows, apparently.

As The Blast points out, the interesting part about the announcement is not only that it comes less than a month after Surviving R. Kelly aired, but that he initially denied a similar international tour announcement in December. “Watch my social media…when it’s time for my next international tour (which is soon) you’ll hear it directly from me. Stay tuned for more King shit in the VERY near future,” he wrote.
Despite the controversy, R. Kelly is apparently still trying to release music imminently. Although he parted ways with his former label, Sony/RCA, he was still allowed to keep all of his unreleased music, which included a new album. He’s still looking for a distributor but given his tarnished reputation, it might be difficult to have someone backing “the Pied Piper of R&B.”
