FILE - This Aug. 10, 2012 photo originally released by Starpix shows R&B singer R. Kelly signing copies of his memoir, "Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me," at Barnes & Noble in New York. R. Kelly has been all about romance on his last two albums, but the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B says he isn't going to abandon the raunch that helped make him famous. Kelly's recent “Write Me Back” and 2010's “Love Letter” was a departure of sorts for the singer-songwriter, whose hits include classics like “Your Body's Calling.”  Kelly described those acclaimed albums as a way of taking a break from his typical explicit material to try something new.
