“Bump N’ Grind” by R. Kelly – 1994

This week Lauren Bambam joins us for an episode on our most controversial artist yet, R Kelly’s 1994 number one hit “Bump N’ Grind.”
Released as the second single from his debut solo album, this song launched his moderate R&B career into the pop mainstream. As a multi-talented writer, musician, and producer, he would go on to create dozens of hits for other hip-hop and R&B artists, earning him the moniker “The King of R&B”. There was only one problem, R Kelly would face numerous allegations of sex abuse resulting from his preference for much younger women. His endless legal battles have constantly left his career in question, and with the recent release of a sordid documentary, the backlash from the music industry and the press is now stronger than ever. What was the ridiculous name of R Kellys first R+B group? How is it possibly for an illiterate man to write a two hour hip-hopera? What is the best time for a golden shower during the lovemaking process? All these questions and more will be answered in this week’s episode of Single File.
