    R. Kelly wants you to write him back! The Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer R. Kelly will release his 11th studio album, Write Me Back, on June 26 via RCA. He believes he can fly, for the 11th time!

    Write Me Back will be available in Standard and Deluxe editions; the latter will include four bonus tracks, while the physical version will have special packaging that will include a postcard for fans to actually write R. Kelly back. Both versions of the album will be available for pre-order on May 29 at select retailers. So writing R. back is both literal and figurative.

    The single "Share My Love" will be available for purchase at all digital providers on May 29.

    Write Me Back is the follow up to 2010's critically acclaimed Love Letter, which celebrated the music of the '50s and '60s. The new album represents the natural progression of Kelly’s musical time machine, recalling the sultry and seductive sounds associated with such icons as Barry White, Marvin Gaye and Teddy Pendergrass, among others. Like its predecessor, Write Me Back is also a celebration of love.

    Are you going to write R. Kelly back?
