Kelly Addresses Sex Abuse Claims in New 19-Minute Song 'I Admit'

R Kelly addresses sexual misconduct allegations on new 19-minute song “I Admit It”

Singer R. Kelly, the target of a boycott campaign over his treatment of women, hit back Monday in a 19-minute song in which he reveals he was abused himself. Kelly starts the song by singing, "I admit I done made some mistakes/And I have some imperfect ways".

He also says that while he does "fuck with all the ladies that's both older and young", the allegations of being a pedophile are "crazy", adding that he's only opening up about all of this because of how "they tryna play me".

Kelly has been dogged for years by allegations of sexual abuse, with claims of underage sex, and allegations that he trapped several women in a "sex cult" - all of which he denies. 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. "Can't eat, really? Real talk, that s-t sounds silly", Kelly sings on the track.

In 2002, R. Kelly released a song about his troubles in similar fashion with 'Heaven I Need a Hug, ' a response to his critics at the time. If you think you can stomach "I Admit", hear it below.

"Now the truth in this message is I'm a broke (expletive) legend/The only reason I stay on tour is 'cause I gotta pay my rent", he sings on the new track.

He also chides celebrities who have turned on him including singer John Legend as well as top streaming service Spotify, which briefly removed him from playlists as part of a crackdown. "Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name". In another, he appears to address the parents of Jocelyn Savage, who told BuzzFeed in 2017 that she was being held captive by Kelly.

"I was told I had to sell my cars, I was told I couldn't get a loan/Said I owed 20 million to the IRS and they were coming to get my home", he sings. The piece also spoke to two women, Tracy Sampson and Patrice Jones, who both said that they first met Kelly while minors and had sexual relationships with him.

He sings "they tryna lock me up like Bill" - presumably a reference to comedian Bill Cosby, who was convicted earlier this year on three counts of sexual assault. Whats the definition of a sex slave?

He continues, "What's the definition of a cult?".

The veteran R&B singer also claims he was molested by a family member up until the age of 14. "Some like to get branded/ And what some of these girls want, is too much for the radio station/ Look I'm just a man y'all/ Not a monster or beast/ But I admit there are times when these girls so fine, they'll chill with a n-- for a week". "/ Go to the dictionary, look it up / Let me know I'll be here waiting". "I said my lawyer said 'don't say noth"/But I can tell you I've been set up".
