R&B/soul star R. Kelly will release his first hits compilation Sept. 9 on Jive Records. "The 'R' In R&B Collection Volume 1" will boast a number of the artist's best known tunes alongside new tracks and a limited-edition remix disc.

The set will be highlighted by two new cuts, including the single "Thoia Thoing," debuts at No. 70 on Billboard's Hot 100 this week. R. Kelly also recorded the brand-new track "Ghetto Religion" with Wyclef Jean for "The 'R'."

The rest of the disc will be fleshed out with such hits as "Bump N' Grind," "Your Body's Callin'," "Down Low (Nobody Has To Know)," "When a Woman's Fed Up," "I Wish" and "I'm Your Angel" with Celine Dion.

A bonus disc packaged with the first shipments of "The 'R'" will feature previously unreleased remixes of R. Kelly songs. Jive says the artist is in the studio recording for future projects with the likes of Baby, Jahiem, B2K and Nick Cannon.

Kelly's latest album, "Chocolate Factory" debuted atop The Billboard 200 in March and has sold 2 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
