"I Wish" was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
Few people have ever bought an R. Kelly record for its sophisticated lyrical innuendo, and on TP-2.COM Kelly offers more of the unabashedly carnal mack-daddy R&B that made him a pinup in the '90s. It's clear from the outset that Kelly means business, as the opening tune finds him declaring that he's "horny as hell" and "it's about to get kinky."
Over the sensual slow jam of "Strip for You," he informs his lady that he's about to put himself at her service. On the delicate, lushly orchestrated "The Greatest Sex," he similarly abjures metaphor with a straightforwardness that somehow turns quirky a la Prince. However, there's enough variety in the instrumental twists and turns of the album to keep things from sounding too monochromatic. "Like a Real Freak" is a perfect example, as Kelly's no-nonsense sex talk is framed by delicate flamenco guitar work.
