R&B crooner R. Kelly plans on releasing a memoir entitled “Soulacoaster.” In a slight twist, The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter said “I’m writing this book as Robert, not R. Kelly.” Kelly has endured a number of personal and business setbacks throughout his career including criminal cases, divorce, Jay-Z beef, and radio blacklist but he has still continued to be herald as one of the greatest recording artist of his generation. In the forthcoming biography, he believes he can provide full insight into his life stating, “I’m tired of being misunderstood. I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat. I will open my heart and reveal the good in my life as well as all the drama. I want to tell it like it is.”

Kelly wrote the book with the aid of celebrity author David Ritz. The book has been described as “Part memoir, part keepsake; “Soulacoaster” unlocks the door to R. Kelly’s story as only he can tell it, promising his fans an intimate and unforgettable ride.”
