Meanwhile, Spotify says streams of Kelly’s music have spiked in the wake of Surviving R. Kelly, and on New Year’s Day, he dropped a new single. So much for accountability.


Update (10:39 p.m.): According to TMZ, R. Kelly didn’t watch Surviving R. Kelly, which aired from January 3-5. Sources told the site that the singer is “disgusted” by the series’ allegations against him, and claims interviewees who detailed the abuse allegations on camera did so as a personal and professional “vendetta” against him.
