Embattled R&B singer, R. Kelly has released a 19-minute song ‘I Admit’. The song which he released via Instagram found him addressing the numerous accusations of sexual misconduct he has been slammed with. Although on the song he admitted to have committed some of these heinous crimes, his confessions were rather defensive than remorseful.
In the sixth verse of “I Admit”, R. Kelly questions the allegations of a sex cult, singing, “Said I’m abusing these women, what the fuck that’s some absurd shit (what?) / They’re brainwashed, really? (really) / Kidnapped, really? (really) / Can’t eat, really? (really) / Real talk, that shit sound silly (yeah).”
He also stated that music streaming platform Spotify was in the wrong for refusing to playlist his record.
“Spotify took me off they playlist (playlist) / I admit that I, been underrated (rated) / I’m not convicted, not arrested, my dragged my name in the dirt (nope, oh, yeah, yeah) / All this work to be successful, when you abandon me ‘cause of what you heard (yeah, oh, yeah, heard)”.
Kelly also questions the conviction of Bill Cosby, who was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault back in April and revealed his fears of ending up in jail like Cosby.
“You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions (opinions) / But really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion / Yeah, go ahead and stone me, point your finger at me (stone me, yeah, yeah) / Turn the world against me, but only god can mute me (against me, mute me)”.
