R&B Skeletons in the Closet is the fourth solo album by Parliament-Funkadelic leader George Clinton. It was released in May 1986 by Capitol Records and was the last album that Clinton would record for the label. Recording sessions for the album utilized a small cadre of P-Funk musicians including Bootsy Collins, Garry Shider, and DeWayne “Blackbyrd” McKnight, as well as the debut recorded appearance of former Miss America Vanessa L. Williams on the opening track “Hey Good Lookin'”. R&B Skeletons in the Closet was produced by Clinton, Steve Washington, Shider, and Andre Jackson.
The album’s concept deals with black musical artists attempts to “cross over” to white audiences and losing their core black audience in the process. R&B Skeletons in the Closet expands on the dance-funk sound of Clinton’s previous solo albums, and it also incorporates elements of electro and hip hop music. The album was reissued on CD by Capitol Records in 1991, but went out of print shortly thereafter.
