Erykah Badu took a moment during her concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago to say she’s “puttin’ up a prayer right now” for R. Kelly.
“I hope he sees the light of day if he’s done all those things that we’ve seen on TV and heard those ladies talk about,” she said in the below video. “I hope he sees the light of day and comes forward.” She received a mixed reaction from the audience; both cheers and boos can be heard from the crowd.
“But y’all say ‘fuck it!’ See, that’s not love. That’s not unconditional. But what if one of the people that was assaulted by R. Kelly grows up to be an offender, we gonna crucify them? I mean how do we do this? Just something to think about.”
Record labels Sony and RCA have dropped singer R. Kelly, real name Robert Kelly, after weeks of pressure following a documentary called “Surviving R. Kelly,” according to Billboard Magazine.
The six-part documentary series, which aired on Lifetime, featured those who accused the singer of sexual abuse as well as friends of the pop star.
After the series aired, singers who collaborated with R. Kelly apologized, including Lady Gaga and Chance the Rapper. Protesters also marched outside of the Sony building in Manhattan earlier this week.
Also on Friday, Kelly’s former manager turned himself into authorities for allegedly making threats against the family of a woman who is involved with the singer.
Henry James Mason, 52, surrendered on a warrant for felony terroristic threats to authorities in Atlanta.
Yungblud Marks New Era With Latest Single ‘Lowlife.’
Internationally acclaimed musician Yungblud has returned with a landmark new single ‘Lowlife,’ out now via Locomotion/Geffen Records, following a premiere with Zane Lowe on Apple Music. His breakneck voyage through the alt cosmos continues, with ‘Lowlife’ marking a fresh new era – visually, sonically and creatively – for the artist who has undeniably become the voice of Gen-Z, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today.
‘Lowlife’ is perhaps Yungblud’s most honest creation to date. Delivered with fervor and passion, it is an energetic, rebellious and turbo-charged anthem, fusing hard-edge melodies, heavy basslines and raw, vulnerable lyrics. It marks the beginning of a sonic and creative shift that sees Yungblud return to his alternative roots while also taking creative risks with quirky yet detailed production, and considered instrumentation that simultaneously feels both new and nostalgic.

Speaking about the track, Yungblud says: “I wrote ‘Lowlife’ because I just didn’t want to leave my house. I was sick of people, of games, of myself, my friends, anytime I did anything some idiot had an opinion about it. What I should do or be. The truth is I didn’t want to be anything at all sometimes, I wanted to be nothing. So I just didn’t leave bed. I was dissatisfied and craving some sort of boredom. The type of boredom where you sit in your house, in the same sheets and watch fucking mind-numbing TV, so I wrote a song about it.”
He neglected the notion of being beholden to influences when writing the single and entered the studio with producer Paul Meany with no references or preconceived idea of the outcome. He says “I’ve not been going into the studio intent on making something like, ‘Close To Me’ or ‘Born This Way’ or ‘Life On Mars’. We’d start with a blank canvas each time, bring up a beat and see what the f**k happens.”
The single was teased last week when Yungblud sent hand-written notes to fans’ letterboxes around the world, detailing locations in London, Los Angeles and Germany, where blacked-out cars emblazoned with the single title popped up, attracting masses of fans who gathered in their thousands to experience the single for the first time.
Yungblud has just completed a huge run of sold-out arenas in the UK and Europe, and South American festivals, on his headline tour titled YUNGBLUD – The World Tour. He embarks on the US leg throughout June, July and August performing to his biggest North American crowds to date. Starting on June 27 in St. Petersburg, FL and making stops in Philadelphia, Montreal, Tor
Since the beginning of his phenomenal rise, he has nurtured a vast collective of dedicated fans around the globe, with a social following of over 14.5 million and accumulating billions of streams, cementing him firmly amongst the top alternative artists of his generation. With more music to come throughout 2023, Yungblud’s trajectory is looking brighter and more exciting than ever.
‘Lowlife’ is out everywhere now.
