Big question,did Rob really Ghost Write Pop That Booty and if does he use the pseudonym of T.Scott??

Tony Scott is a real guy. But that doesn't mean the R didn't write it... there's just no way to be sure about it, really.

Just a quick correction to one thing on your list, which you probably know, but R didn't write Lovin' You he just produced Sparkle's version.

And R's version of Friend of Mine was "Friend Of Mine (Remix)", Best Friend was a different song, but Friend Of Mine's remix is the one the R wrote.

Hey, so, these Mario G songs? Were they ever released? Also who is Mario G?

Hey, also, you can put the R down for Marques Houston's "That Girl (The Pied Piper Remix)" He pretty much rewrote it.

And Toni Braxton's got a song "The Little Things" on her Ultimate Toni Braxton album, also written and produced by the R.

Also, did you hear Charlie Wilson's album was held back til August? Yeah... yeah

Anyway, glad you like the list. I really should update it... but... too lazy...

I've heard of Mario G I think.

Didn't he do "He Wasn't Man Enough" for Toni Braxton too?

I think he produced a Remix or the video version with Snoop of Britney's Outragous, I don't think he wrote the original. Did he? If you say he did I'll take your word for it.

Didn't he do a song recently with Ja and Ashanti?

Oh, yeah, R. Kelly wrote Outrageous, the original. The Remix too, cause its basically the same song... He didn't do He wasn't Man Enough though.

Ja Rule and Ashanti, yeah, he did "Wonderful" and "I Wonder". Forgot about those.

He's also got "So Hot" on Fat Joe's new album, but isn't credited as writer (though he probably is... probably)

And a song with Elephant man that is probably called "Shake That Ass" but hasn't come out. It could be the song "Reggae Bump Bump" from his new album, cause the song says Bump Bump a lot...

Also forgot the Talent album. The tracks: Together We Stand, Celebrity, I Belong, Every Which Way, Everywhere I Go, Descriptions Of Love, Til The Angels Sing, Breakin' Up, Turn To Lies, All Up In His Ride and My Heart Will Go On (which is a remake of the Celine Dion song, which he produced, with no lyrics though...)

Didnt know there was a remix of Outrageous, but I shud have known better it is Rob after all! Is it on the single release or a Britney album?

Mario G is a new cat who's album and songs havnt been released yet, but he's got all the big guns on there...Rob, Timbaland, Neptunes, Lil Jon and Jazze Pha.

U shud come and join the forum at '' its pretty good but most of the people are veterans who arent really up to date with the game...Caught in abit of a time warp I think.

I was aware that there were a few inaccuracies on my post but I just copied and pasted it from another source of mine and listed it so those other people cud see, as I needed to quickly prove a point to them. ... If you do come across to the site U'll notice that the people on there dont really pay much attention to detail!

The song with elephant man is indeed "Reggae Bump, Bump",. You've probably already got it but here's the provisional track listing for TP3, its changed a couple of times over the last month so hopefully Kells will spring another suprise!

1.Playas Only ft The Game
2.Happy Sumertime ft Snoop
3.Sex In The Kitchen
4.Slow Wind
5.Put My T-Shirt On
6.Remote Control
7.Kickin' It With Your Girlfriend
8.Reggae Bump,Bump ft Elephant man
9.Touchin' ft Nivea
10.Girls Gon Crazy ft Baby
11.Hit It Til The Morning ft Twista & Do or Die
12.Sex Weed
13.(Sex0 Love Is What We Making
14.Burn It Up ft Wysen and Yindelli
15-19.Trapped In The Closet Chapters 1-5

The Cat has also finished Chapters 6-10 but they wont be available for a long time, I tell U the boy is a monster!

Kells definitely wrote his part on 'So Hot', I mean when in his entire career has he had someone write something for him...Id bet NEVER! ...Its a big song though, its like a 'Hotel for 2005'.

Kells didnt actually produce Wonderful it was a Cat called something Hendrix (I dont know his first name), Id assume that Cat also produced I Wonder too even though they had big trademarks of Kells!

That's seriously messed up about Charlie's ablum cuz I Love 'Charlie,Last Name Wilson' and it was my intention to Cop his album the week after Kells'...Have U heard anything more about Syleena Johnson's?..The One Im really looking forward to though is Tyrese's. That Cat needs to get back in the lab real soon, and leave the movies alone cuz Rob is gonna do some magic for him! Hope we dont have to wait til 2006 for that, although that's the most likely outcome!

Just going back to that 'Pop That Booty' Issue, cuz it has always stumped me...The song smells so much of Kells, his name gets shouted out in it, but on the writing/production credits-nothing! Since uve mentioned the ghostwriting thing its re-opened the case for me, I really need to know how ghostwriting works to put my mind at ease!

Look forward to hearing from U Soon!

Syleena Johnson's album doesn't come out until, like, September, I think... still too long.

As for ghost writing, it works in a way that you're not supposed to be 100% on who wrote it or not. Marques Houston did say in an interview once that R. Kelly gave him the song for free, hence why the R's name isn't on it...

My Mind is finally at ease...About 2 months ago Marques was in the UK and was being interviewed on the radio...The Cat posing the questions was soo Wack and got no information whatsoever. I tried ringing up to ask him, but didnt get through. I just wanted someone to ask him that exact question and to found out someone did is great!

Talking about Marques, the Cat has come up pretty weak on his sopmore helping...11 tracks, none of particular significance, and 'The Jump Off' isnt even one of them...Big Disappointment!

That's messed up about Syleena, I was looking forward to that hitting stores in August. In saying that have U ever seen the video for 'Hypnotic'?

Ive never heard of the group 'Talent', and apart from 'Everywhere I Go' who sang the songs in the list that U posted (Together We Stand, Celebrity, I Belong, Every Which Way etc).

You've got a really impressive archive on Kells and music in general cuz I checked out your 'audioscrobbler' thing yesterday...All the Big Guns were up in there, Jon B, Gerald, Luther, Stevie...That's definitive RnB right there!!..A cat has got to respect your taste!!!

Holla @ a Scholar!!!

Apologies I missed off the 'Isley Brothers' from the summarised list...I cant be disrespecting such LEGENDS like that...Ultimate Props!!!!

hahaha yeah, audioscrobbler rules.

All the tracks I posted there were written by R. Kelly and performed by the group Talent. The album wasn't ever really released, but you can get it if you're willing fork out a fortune for it.
