Reporting The Saga of R. Kelly | The Best Albums By Women

Women rock! Female artists have made some of the greatest albums ever. And it's about time they get the credit they deserve. NPR Music compiled a list of 150 albums, which may include some of your favorites. We're playing a few of the hits and considering what the list missed with Ann Powers, music critic and correspondent for NPR, Jim DeRogatis, co-host of Sound Opinions and a music critic at WBEZ Chicago and Keanna Faircloth, host of Evening Jazz on WPFW 89.3 in Washington, D.C. First, we focus on R&B legend R. Kelly. He's canceling tour dates amid more accusations that he controls young women, for sex. Jim DeRogatis has been following the story for years and gives us the latest. More — including Jim's story for BuzzFeed News and NPR's list of the 150 best albums by women — at the1a.org
