'Chocolate Factory'

Year released: 2003 Peak position: 1 Weeks on the charts: 60 About the album: By far one of R. Kelly's most successful albums, "Chocolate Factory" soared to the top of the charts thanks to the lead single "Ignition (Remix)." The album's third single, "Step in the Name of Love," featured an old-school R&B groove that would set the tone for his follow-up record "Happy People / U Saved Me." The album was released amid the accusation that Kelly filmed himself doing sexual acts with an underage girl. Full review: Which is the real R. Kelly?
