Kelly's Soulacoaster cover
Remember last fall's hullabaloo surrounding R. Kelly's memoir Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me? First announced back in December 2009, Kelly's book was originally slated for last November 15, but then mysteriously disappeared from online retailers a few days earlier, only to be pushed back to spring 2012.
That deadline may've come and gone, but we can officially confirm that the book finally has a release date and it's soon--next Thursday, June 28, to coincide with Kell's upcoming full-length Write Me Back. If you're one of the unfortunate few who can't make it to the R. Kelly cruise, Robert Sylvester will be signing Soulacoaster copies at the Tribeca Barnes and Noble, from six to eight pm, that same day. We will not be able to shut up about this book for months.
The press release going out tomorrow is below.
