R Kelly Tp2 Album
Released as the "sequel" to Kelly's 12 Play, TP-2.com had party songs, relationship-themed ballads and a gospel-influenced song, but it still had Kelly's trademark sensuality with songs including "The Greatest Sex" and "Strip for You". The album was most notable for two number 1 R&B hits: the tribute song "I Wish", and the party anthem, "Fiesta (Remix)", which featured Jay-Z. The latter duet inspired the two to create the collaborative project The Best of Both Worlds. Another notable single was the risque "Feelin' On Yo Booty". The album has since been certified 4 Platinum. The album was Kelly's second album to peak at number 1 on the Billboard 200 and the fourth to top the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. TP-2.com was the number one R&B Album on the Billboard Year-End chart for 2001.
TP-2.com received mostly positive reviews from music critics. Sonicnet wrote, "TP-2.com isn't the masterpiece Kelly seems capable of, but it's as strong an R&B album as any since, well, since R., balancing the carnal and the spiritual as convincingly as anyone's done it since Prince in the 1980s." Billboard wrote, "Not to be outdone by the generation of singers he has influenced, he raises the bar with the 19-track set." The Village Voice wrote, "TP-2.com is a magnum opus of the genre, milking both Kelly's recent reflection and his baser inclinations for all they're worth." Wall of Sound wrote, "All in all, the production is sharp, with some fairly clever vocal and percussion arrangement ideas throughout." Billboard magazine ranked TP-2.com at number 94 on the magazine's Top 200 Albums of the Decade.
R. Kelly tames his ambitions a bit on TP-2.Com, assembling a simple sequel to his classic 12 Play album from 1993 rather than another epic venture like his double-disc, all-bases-covered R. album from 1998. The straightforwardness is somewhat of a welcome endeavor. As breathtaking as had been R. -- an album that straddled the huge gap between the sort of radio pop associated with Celine Dion as well as the street rap of Jay-Z and Nas -- it also seemed too overblown at times, as if Kelly had something to prove during an era of double-disc epic rap albums. So to see him return to the simple singles approach of 12 Play is refreshing, particularly since he has plenty of singles to work with here, just as he had with TP-1. Kelly furthermore unleashes his singles -- "I Wish," a mass-appeal vocal pop number with an urban edge; "Fiesta," a Latin Invasion cash-in that aims for the dancefloor; and "Feelin' on Yo Booty," a whispery come-on for all the weak-kneed ladies and some of the mindful ones too -- with tailor-made remixes to ensure himself broad airplay. Only one of those remixes is here though, the "I Wish" one, so take heed. There's no Jay-Z-featuring remix of "Fiesta" and no up-tempo one of "Feelin' on Yo Booty," yet TP-2.Com is a strong album nonetheless, three steps ahead of practically every other non-rap urban album from 2000. It does seem like Kelly is coasting a bit here at times, though, particularly when you hold TP-2.Com up against its massive predecessor, but even when R's lounging, he's generally ahead of the pack.
The "Pied Piper of R&B" made his debut in 1992, alongside the group Public Announcement. The group released their debut album, Born Into the '90s, earning a platinum plaque and showcasing his promise as a budding superstar. But it would be his first solo album, 12 Play, that would truly lay the foundation for his illustrious run. Released in November of 1993, 12 Play would sell over six million copies in the U.S. alone and would solidify R. Kelly as the hottest male R&B vocalist in the game.
By 2000, R. Kelly had already released two additional multi-platinum albums -- R. Kelly and R. -- and amassed a slew of hit singles and high-profile guest appearances, but was two years removed from the music and looking to reinvent himself. That transformation resulted in his fourth studio LP, TP-2.com, the sequel to his landmark 12 Play album. Released on Nov. 7, 2000, the album debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 543,000 copies sold, his best first-week showing up to that point. Despite being devoid of a monster pop single, the project spawned multiple radio hits ("Fiesta," "Feelin' on Yo Booty") and would sell over four million copies domestically in addition to being hailed as one of the best releases of the year.
TP-2.com est le quatrième album studio du chanteur et producteur de R&B R. Kelly. Le titre de l'album fait référence à son tout premier album solo 12 Play. C'est donc une suite de ce dernier et se terminera en trilogie avec TP.3 Reloaded.
TP-2.com reste l'une des plus grandes réussites de Kelly tant sur le plan artistique qu'au niveau commercial. C'est en effet l'album qui s'est le mieux vendu à l'international et notamment en France.
Les singles I Wish et The Storm Is Over Now ont contribué au large succès de l'album et le remix de la chanson Fiesta avec le rappeur Jay-Z va accroître ce succès même s'il ne figure pas directement sur l'album. Vu le grand engouement pour ce remix, un album commun entre les deux artistes naîtra quelques mois plus tard s'intitulant The Best of Both Worlds, littéralement Le Meilleur des deux mondes, faisant allusion à l'alchimie entre le RnB pour Kelly et le rap pour Jay-Z. 59ce067264
