NEW YORK (AP) — R. Kelly sings about his troubles and battles in a new 19-minute song, addressing sexual abuse claims against him that have put a screeching halt on his career.
The song, “I Admit,” was posted to Soundcloud on Monday. The track begins with the lyrics, “I admit I have made some mistakes/And I have some imperfect ways.”
R. Kelly gets personal throughout the track, singing that he likes “all the ladies, that’s both older and young ladies,” following it up with: “But tell me how they call it pedophile because that (expletive) is crazy.”
He also sings that he’s “not convicted, not arrested, dragged my name in the dirt/All this work to be successful when you abandon me ’cause of what you heard.”
R-Kelly drops new song “I Admit It” on his IG Live. In the 19 minute song he opens up about various topics including his sex tape with the 16yr old girl, marriage with the late artist Aaliyah, and more. ‘I admit I f*ck with all the ladies, that’s both old and young ladies.😳🤭’
