Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Although the US Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts both comprise up to a hundred songs, the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles act somewhat as 25-song extensions to each chart. Thus, songs that have peaked on these extension charts are listed in this discography under the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with values over a hundred.
    To search for songs that charted on the Bubbling Under charts, use this search page and look up exact chart positions on this address: http://api.billboard.com/apisvc/chart/v1/list?artist=R._Kelly&song=[title]&sdate=[start date yyyy-mm-dd]&edate=[end date yyyy-mm-dd]&api_key=bvk4re5h37dzvx87h7rf5dqz
