R. Kelly to release memoir on June 28
R. Kelly has set a release date for his previously announced autobiography, Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me. The long-awaited book will come out on June 28, two days after the prolific R&B star releases his eleventh studio album, Write Me Back.
Here's what you can expect to find between the book's pages, according to its official description:
In his own words, music icon Robert Sylvester Kelly takes readers on an emotion-packed “soulacoaster” ride that explores the untold story of his frequently sensationalized but rarely humanized life. With searing honesty, Kelly delivers a fascinating portrait of a gifted soul trapped in the conflicting realities of “bump and grind” sexuality and soul-stirring “I Believe I Can Fly” spirit. Kelly’s spectacular rise from street performer to superstar who has sold more than 35 million records worldwide was derailed when he plummeted into a six-year legal ordeal that nearly ruined his life and finances–until in 2008 he was found innocent of all criminal charges.
This summer, Kelly will embark on a book signing tour of U.S. cities to promote the memoir, which was co-authored by David Ritz.
