STEP IN THE NAME OF LOVE
With his ’80s and ’90s statutory rape allegations and indictments returning to the news, R. Kelly seems to be ending 2013 in decline. That said, the Chicago crooner’s year took a turn for the worse in late summer back when Jaheim released his own “Age Ain’t a Factor,” the best r&b sex jam in years. The track finds the singer promising to pleasure his aging love, assuring her that, like a fine wine, she’s only getting better with time. The following album, Appreciation Day (I won’t tell you what he appreciates, but you’ll probably guess it on your second try), contains more of the same, as should today’s Stage 48 show.
