SR is reporting that the pied piper of R&B R. Kelly has confirmed that he is releasing his first house album. Best known for his “baby making-panty dropping” records, Kelly is taking a bold new step in the direction that many of his other contemporaries have ventured into as well including Usher and Ne-Yo.

“I want y’all to know a secret, I’m working on a House album right now, and I want y’all to know it’s coming,” Kelly told event-goers at Chicago’s Chosen Few DJ’s picnic last Sunday (July 6th). “I love music and I feel like I can do anything when it comes to music because I am music, just like y’all.”

News of the album comes on the heels of RCA releasing a double CD of Kelly’s greatest hits.  The Essential R. Kelly,  which is available now on iTunes, features 35 tracks from projects ranging from 1991-2012. Kelly is also looking to release his first holiday album as well titled, 12 Nights of Christmas.
