Verzuz Fans Had Mixed Feelings About The Isley Brothers Playing R. Kelly Songs

Singer R. Kelly was somehow present during the recent Verzuz battle Sunday night with The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire.


Ron and Ernie Isley played two of their hits “Contagious” and “Busted” written and or produced by R. Kelly and fans took to social media with mixed reactions. Many asked:

Can you separate the art from the artist, especially in this instance when the art in question was created for another artist?

Some fans expressed how “it was not a good look” and some might agree especially with everything that transpired with R. Kelly recently.

Kelly is in prison awaiting trial on federal and state criminal charges. These charges include abuse of a minor, sexual trafficking, sexual assault, racketeering, obstruction of justice, and more.
