R. Kelly sets album date, claims R&B chart record

NEW YORK (Billboard) - R&B singer-songwriter R. Kelly will release his 10th studio album, “Untitled,” on December 1.

With the first single from the Jive Records release, “Number One” -- Kelly’s 35th top-10 single on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs -- he has surpassed Nat King Cole’s record of top-10 singles on that tally.

“Number One,” featuring Keri Hilson, has reached No. 8 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Song chart and No. 68 on the Hot 100.

The album’s second single, “Religious,” recently entered the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 95.
