Meanwhile, radio airplay for Kelly has plummeted. On Jan. 7, the first Monday following the airing of Surviving R. Kelly (and as weekday station morning shows returned after the weekend), Kelly's music totaled 198,000 in all-format radio audience impressions, continuing a sharp decline from 380,000 on Jan. 6 and 806,000 on Jan. 5. On Jan. 3, the day that the series premiered, Kelly's music totaled 1.25 million in airplay audience.

 

Even over the past year, radio airplay for Kelly's music has dropped noticeably. In January 2018, his songs (including with Dion and Public Announcement) averaged 11.1 million in audience each week. By December 2018 (counting the weeks ending Dec. 6-27), he averaged 6.7 million.

For the math wizards out there:

-- roughly 85% down since January 3rd 
-- roughly 98% down compared to weekly average a year ago
