The Truth Video without R Kelly
« on: August 30, 2002, 08:26:10 PM »
Truth Hurts, who is signed to Dr. Dre's Aftermath label, recently issued "The Truth." The song is a duet with R. Kelly, who also penned and produced the song, and it is the new single from her debut album, Truthfully Speaking, which came out in June. The song's video, directed by Brian Barber of FM Rocks, is still in production.

Kelly, who is fighting 21 counts of child pornography charges for allegedly taping a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old, likely does not appear in the video. Truth Hurts declined to offer the specifics of the video. "You'll see it [soon]. Very clever," she said Saturday (August 24), while backstage at the eighth annual Soul Train Lady Of Soul Awards.

In June, before "The Truth" had been selected as the single, Truth Hurts told LAUNCH that her record label initially had some reservations about using the R. Kelly song as the release. "There was no hesitation for me," Truth Hurts told LAUNCH. "But of course there was, 'cause record companies think about money, that's it. I thought about it being a great song, and I thought about it being my song. And I don't judge, man. That's what I thought about when that happened."

Truth Hurts' debut single, "Addictive" featuring Rakim, reached Number Two on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. She was also nominated for the best solo R&B/soul or rap new artist honor at the Lady Of Soul Awards.

Finally, somebody who thinks the same way i do.. regardless of whether R. Kelly did it or not, he is very talented and we shouldnt mix his personal life as his profession, just like in wrestling, HHH could be the meanest guy in the ring, but in real life, he could be the coolest and nicest dude.. Anyways, this is a good single, i personally like this song a lot..

She deserves props for this, she's simply thinking about the music, which is what makes her so special. This is a good choice for a single I think, it showcases her talents in different ways to what "Addictive" did which is a good thing, shows diversity. R.Kelly did a good job, this track reminds me of that track he did with that Sparkle chick, that did very well too. The video should be good for this song too, it will probably look weird without Kelly in the video though  :-/

I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.
