He reportedly increased his weekly on-demand audio streaming from 5.4 million in 2017 to roughly 6.4 million in the last ten months.
This increase in sales comes only days after YouTube deleted several R. Kelly accounts and tracks from its site.
However, the singer of ‘If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Tim,’ who ruled the R&B world for years, still has music on YouTube and third-party uploads of his songs are still permitted.
Following six weeks of testimony accusing him of methodically recruiting women and teenagers for sex, grooming, and severely abusing them, the R&B star, the actual name Robert Sylvester Kelly, was found guilty in September of nine felony counts, including the most serious of racketeering.
He is now in custody and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison; his sentencing hearing is set for May 4.
