Michael Jackson - R. Kelly announces new house album

R. Kelly is working on an electronic dance album.

The singer is known as an R&B star but has revealed he is going to experiment with his sound and make a house record.

While on stage at the Chosen Few DJs Picnic event in Chicago, the 47-year-old musician told the crowd: ''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.''

As the audience cheered, the 'Bump 'n' Grind' singer added: ''And y'all know, I love music and I feel like I can do anything when it comes to music because I am music just like y'all.''

Kelly is yet to reveal any other details of the LP, but could be set to bring in the biggest names in dance after previously collaborating with pop legends such as Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Jay Z and P. Diddy.

To date, R. Kelly has released 12 albums, with his most recent record being 'Black Panties'. The album was a commercial success selling 133,000 copies in the United States within the first week and debuted at number four on the 'Billboard 200' chart.

As well as his house project the singer is working on a follow-up to his last album which will be called 'White Panties' and is set to feature Justin Bieber.

He also has plans for a festive album entitled 'The 12 Nights Of Christmas'.
