For R. Kelly's upcoming album, Buffet, he wanted to create the ultimate R. Kelly listening experience. In order to do that, he says that he ended up creating 462 full songs, then broke it down to a whole album's worth.
"I’ve done 462 songs for this particular album,” he tells EW. “They’re not ideas, they are whole full songs. I wanted to be sure that I really nailed it to the point that when I started breaking it down to the 14, 15, 16 songs that go on the album that I had more than enough to choose from, and they would all be great choices."That amount of songs is insane, and it also leaves fans wondering if we'll ever hear any of the ones that don't make the album. Buffet will be out on September 25.
