Will You Buy R Kelly’s New Release “I Admit”

Published

R Kelly has released what is the ultimate diss record  to his accusers and critics.  The BBC is reporting that the “I Believe I Can Fly” and”Bump and Grind” singer “has responded to multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against him by releasing a 19-minute song I Admit.”

The news outlet is the same site that sparked the #MuteRKelly campaign with an investigative report into allegations against Kelly in May of this year.  After the campaign launch, activists began targeting Kelly by going after different agencies with ties to the singer.  The #MuteRKelly campaign began lobbying RCA record label to sever ties with  the singer.  The group also went after concert promoters and ticket outlets.  The group successfully argued their case to streaming services  convincing Spotify, Pandora, and Apple music  to demote or dismiss Kelly’s playlists.

But the group was far from finished. A petition was circulated claiming that Kelly was holding young women hostage in an alleged sex cult.   The petitioners  also fought to keep Kelly’s music from being played in rotation on local and national radio stations.  One of the first to join the protest and ban all of Kelly’s music was nationally syndicated radio hosts Tom Joyner.

The 51 year old Kelly has been haunted by salacious gossip about his sexual behavior since his career took off in the ’90s.  He has denied being a sexual predator of any and all kinds and sticks to that defense in the new song with lyrics  starting humbly singing, “I admit I done made some mistakes
And I have some imperfect ways (I have some imperfect ways)“.   As the song builds, so does Kelly’s bitterness singing, “I admit I helped so many people (I helped so many)
And them same damn people turned fake (same damn people turned)” 

And from bitterness, Kelly launches into, “I admit it, I admit it I did (yeah)
I done fu**ked with a couple of fans (fans)
I admit that I’m a gift and a curse (gift and a curse)

About eleven and half minutes  into the song, Kelly denounces again all the allegations against him as “some absurd s**t” before dismissing some of what he’s accused of as nothing more than sex the way some of his partners like it singing…

“Now I admit that I got some girls that love me to pull they hair

Now I admit that I got some girls that love me to pull they hair

Now I admit that they love me to talk dirty when I pull they hair

Some like me to spank ’em

Some like to get branded”

You can find the complete lyrics to the 19 song a Genius.com and you can find the record on SoundCloud.

Check it out and let us know if you’re still a fan of Kelly’s or think he’s a casualty of the #MeToo Movement.  Do you think Kelly’s appeal to his diehard fans will work? Or do you think Kelly is just using the only platform left to plead his case?

    R Kelly lost my support when the video of him violating that CHILD was released. I dont really care about his sexual behaviors and habits as long as it’s between 2 CONSENTING adults. (Hello Bill Cosby). But as a parent, grandparent,etc of young women, I give less than 0 f’s about ANY child molesting sexual predator including R Kelly. And it boggles my mind how people are running to his defense because his music is great? Huh??Another sad ending chapter to a stellar career of a very talented but sick individual.

    One’s past should define one’s future if the past is neither admitted to nor corrected. Only a person who has little or no respect or compassion for innocence and immaturity of young girls who have been violated would infer that the past should just be forgotten. I pray that no one who feels this way ever has to endure the pain of such abuse be visited upon the underage female members of their family like a sister or daughter.

    Correction: I was saying that what Kells is doing is part of telling them haters what they can do with themselves!

    I’m still a fan of Kells no matter what he did or didn’t do; why let his past define his future? if putting out a new single is part of bettering his self as a musician as well as a person, than God bless him for that! That would tell his haters what they can do with they can do!

    So there is a special interest group called “MuteRKelly”? No problem. I have a question, where is the “MuteCharlieSheen movement? Where is the MuteAllisonMack movement? When white people are caught engaging in sexual deviancy mainstream media is silent.

    PS: Allison Mack is a white actress from the tv show Smalleville who was drugging and torturing women in a sex cult called NXIVM.
