R Kelly’s 19 Minute Song Dropped Revealing A Lot of Tea. We Have the Song, The Summary of the Song, and Some Angry Black Folks on Twitter.
But really…who’s got 19 minutes to listen to an R Kelly song! Me.
But here’s the thing, you do have to take everything with a grain of salt. He is an artist. He dropped the song with a tweet basically saying that this is what we have all been waiting for. I wouldn’t say that we were waiting, but we will take the drama.
Today is the day you’ve been waiting for. 🎶 I ADMIT 🎶

Here is my attempts of ‘cliff noting’ the song, so you can be in the know now, and catch up when you have 19 minutes or so later.
Here are the big reveals:
– He’s broke and is touring to pay rent
– Confirms he is illiterate, cannot spell after dropping out of school
– Owes $20 million to IRS, had to borrow money from label
– Couldn’t read the teleprompter at the GRAMMYs
– Hasn’t seen his kids in years
– Admitted he loved Aaliyah romantically
– A family member molested him from childhood to 14
Some Highlight lyrics……
I admit that I couldn’t read the teleprompter
When the Grammy’s asked me to present (yeah)
I admit, I admit that I did (I did it)
I fucked my girlfriend’s best friend (oh)
Take my career and turn it upside down, ’cause you mad I’ve got some girlfriends (girlfriends)
I admit I fuck 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)
Now Wendy Williams mad with me? But I ain’t never offered her no drink (no drink)
But I admit that she asked me, can I get a little Hennessy? (yeah)
We both turned off our phone, we drinked, I smoked, we talked
I admit that I told it all (our phone, we talked, it off)
From my good points to my faults (faults)
She said, “What about Aaliyah?”
I said “love”
She said, “What about the tape?”
I said “hush”
I said my lawyer said “don’t say noth'”
Said I had dyslexia, couldn’t read all them contracts, yeah
Now the truth in this message, is I’m a broke ass legend (message, legend)
Now, I admit a family member touched me (touched me, touched me, touched me)
From a child to the age 14, yeah
While I laid asleep, took my virginity (sleep, gini’)
Don’t push your daughter in my face, and tell me that it’s okay (my face, okay)
‘Cause your agenda is to get paid, and get mad when it don’t go your way (yeah, go way)
You get the gist of the song. It’s deep. It’s a confession and it’s messy. And of course social media is going crazy.

I thought #RKelly was trending because he did some more sick shit, but instead it’s because of a new 20 min song about doing sick shit. Can we please cancel this human?

“I Admit It” is genius cause he’s not really admitting to anything, lol. He’s just giving the ppl what they wanted by saying “I admit it” 😂 #RKelly

Here is the sad reality about his R. Kelly 19 minute song. Its probably on YouTube and probably monetized. It’s generating a lot of attention which means lots of views. So bascially #RKelly will be generating profit for a song about him being a sex offender. I won’t listen to it!
