R. Kelly is feeling some type of way about his album sales.
The Trapped In The Closet singer is not satisfied with his first week sales and is pleading to his fans to buy his new album. Kelly posted a video on Facebook to make a plea to Black people to support his latest record, The Buffet, which sold around 28,000 since it was released on Dec. 11.
During the video, Kelly said, “We gotta start supporting each other. I bust my ass going around doing shows to survive, but I do this for the love. But come on, at some point we gotta start supporting each other. Everybody supports every other category of music, we gotta start supporting each other.”
Kelly also talked how fans of all other genres still support artists like Adele and Ed Shereen, but R&B artists also need that same support from R&B fans to keep soul music alive.
Kelly also complained about his lack of support from his record label, he concluded: “I want my people to get behind me.”
