R Kelly has addressed the allegations of sexual misconduct in new 19 minute single, ‘I Admit It’.
The Pop icon has been in the eye of the storm lately with a number of young women coming out to state that the singer held them against their will and forced them to have sexual intercourse with other women.
The allegations also covered abuse, controlling them on how to dress, what to eat and when they were to do things, sparking a number of reactions from brand associated to the singer and online music platform, Spotify taking measures by removing his songs from their playlists.
In a new 19-minuted song premiered on his Instagram Live on Sunday, July 22, R Kelly admits to making mistakes but denied any of the allegations of sexual misconduct.
In the lyrics of the song, he says; “I done made some mistake…
How they gon’ say I don’t respect these women, when all I’ve done is represent (30 years)/ Take my career and turn it upside down, ’cause you mad I’ve got some girlfriends (girlfriends),” he sings.
At one point in the song, Kelly admits to being with “older and younger [ladies]” and also makes reference to the ongoing campaign against him.
“I admit I mess with all the ladies, that’s both older and young ladies (ladies, yeah)/ But tell me how they call it pedophile because that shit is crazy (crazy)/.
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).”
He specifically references allegations charged by the parents of Jocelyn Savage, who say Kelly began dating their 19-year-old daughter in 2016 and proceeded to cut off all communications between them and their daughter.
“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)/ And if you really, really wanna know (know)/ Her father dropped her off at my show (show).”
