R KELLY'S alleged deviant ways are widely reported and criticised - and now the R&B singer is speaking out firsthand in his latest track, which totals at a lengthy 19 minutes.

The song - entitled I Admit - was released on Monday (July 23) and in the track he addresses a handful of his “sins.”

I Admit covers various allegations that have been published about Kelly over the course of his lengthy career. On the second verse, the singer confesses that he has trouble reading and was unable to read the words on the teleprompter at the Grammys one year. He later reveals he was diagnosed with dyslexia, which aided in his inability to read.

“I admit I can’t spell for shit I admit that all I hear is hits (ohh) / I admit that I couldn’t read the teleprompter when the Grammy’s asked me to present.”

Further along in the song, Kellz says that he has multiple girlfriends and specifically addresses the “sex cult” allegations.

“What’s the definition of a cult?/ What’s the definition of a sex slave? / Go to the dictionary, look it up / Let me know I’ll be here waiting,” he sings.”Say I’m abusing these women. What the f**k? That’s some absurd shit. They brainwashed, really? Kidnapped, really? Can’t eat, really? Real talk that s**t sounds silly.”

Kelly also calls out Jim Derogatis, the journalist behind the explosive Buzzfeed feature which first exposed the alleged sex cult in 2017.

“To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is (whatever your name is) / You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years (25 whole years, yeah) / Writin’ the same stories over and over against (stories, stories, yeah) Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career (a whole career) / But guess what? I pray for you and family, and all my other enemies (prayed for you, enemies).”

R. Kelly has been accused of some alarming acts, including holding young women captive in his homes in Chicago and Atlanta, as documented in a recent BBC Three documentary.

A number of women who claim to be past “captives,” have shared stories of his alleged abuse and manipulation and in response to various reports, Spotify reportedly removed Kelly’s music from its playlists and Twitter users launched the hashtag #MuteRKelly.
