Kelly music sales surge after ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ docuseries

Chance The Rapper Apologizes For Working With R. Kelly

Chance the Rapper Says Working With R. Kelly Was a “Mistake”

Master P continues to say that he don't know if R. Kelly did all the things that they said that he did, but the parents should've done more to protect their kids. "Maybe these sales represent the curious listener hoping R. Kelly gives them something that they won't see in the blinding heat of the limelight", jlabbeii wrote.

Some critics seized on Chance's remarks about black women, which were quoted by Rolling Stone earlier on Saturday as they appeared in the documentary.

Those girls, now women, are the focus of Surviving R. Kelly, an extremely effective piece of entertainment journalism-though it may be more accurate to think of it as an extremely effective piece of activist entertainment journalism.

Surviving R. Kelly is the latest in a series of recent investigative pieces on the singer, including an explosive BuzzFeed report from 2017 by Jim DeRogatis.

A national network that takes calls from people experiencing sexual abuse saw a 27 percent rise in traffic to their website after the first night "Surviving R. Kelly" aired, according to Today.

"We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression", he says.

Kim, the former head of Dartmouth College, was first tapped by former President Barack Obama to lead the World Bank in 2012. Under Kim, the bank set the goal of eliminating extreme poverty by 2030 and ramped up financing to developing countries.

Facebook pulled two pages created on Monday morning to "expose" R. Kelly's accusers.

Smith giggled while telling the story as if he showed little or no remorse. I don't just go around interviewing for every exposé. I went into a depression. "The breaking point for me was when Rob slapped me, and he choked me until I blacked out", she concluded.

In addition to the many allegations, Surviving R. Kelly also details Kelly's life, including his molestation as a child, his ascent as a singer, and his secret marriage to Aaliyah in 1994, when she was 15 and he was 33.

The Princess of Urban Pop later died in a plane crash in the Bahamas in 2001 after the unlicensed pilot had cocaine and alcohol in his system. McGee was featured in the documentary and revealed that R. Kelly forced her to remain in his sex cult.

Non-for-profit advocacy organisation Color of Change tweeted the "strength of black women & girls is determined by how much suffering we can endure".

Let's hope the conversation will finally spark action and justice for these women.
