It seems as if R. Kelly has taken a page from Mike Jones book as the R&B singer has a phone number for anyone to reach him. While you dont get to speak to Kells personally, you do get to hear a message from the singer as he previews songs from his new album, Double Up:

Whats up yall, this Kells, Im glad yall called. Im in the studio right nowsince yall called, Ima give yall a snippet of what Im about to hit yall with. Hold on, turn it offthis song called Blow it Up with Jeezyand I got Young Dro on here, they killin it.

Following this message is a brief sound byte of the song Blow it Up. After the song finishes playing, R. Kelly comes back on:

Cant give yall the whole song. This next song Im doin, its called Leave ya name, you feel me?

The song Leave Ya Name plays out like a musical version of an answering machine message. In a similar fashion, R.Kelly previews the songs Double Up ft. Snoop Dogg, Freakin In the Club, Put Some Money on It ft. Rick Ross, Hookin Up with Kanye West, and Rock Star with Ludacris.

As for the album, Kells promises the fans that it is about 70% hip hop, though it is not exclusively upbeat hip hop tracks, and will include some slow R&B.

After the message ends, you can leave your own message for R. Kelly. If youre calling from a cell phone, the messaging system will text you with information following the call.

The phone number to reach the Chocolate Factory Hotline is 312-278-3965.

The album Double Up is set to be released May 29th.
