R. Kelly’s latest single, “When A Woman Loves” comes from Love Letter, one of his three upcoming albums.

The song is a throwback to old school soul songs from the 1960s done with a cheap 2010 aesthetic.

Seriously… R. Kelly’s got money.  Can he not afford to hire some real session musicians to come in and record?  The end result sounds like you’d hear it in between the latest Marvin Sease record and Clarence Carter’s “Strokin'” at one of those dive bars that the old heads frequent dressed in their Sunday go-to-meetin’ clothes…

And just because we couldn’t help thinking about this song when we first heard it, here’s Percy Sledge’s classic “When A Man Loves A Woman.”
