R. Kelly might want to get some fresh legal advice. The R&B singer released 19-minute track “I Admit” on Monday — the song, which includes chorus “I admit it/I did it,” covers the accusations that Kelly kidnapped women and held them as sex slaves and that he slept with underage girls.

“Today is the day you’ve been waiting for,” Kelly wrote on Instagram, directing followers to the same SoundCloud link you can find towards the bottom of this post.

Before even that, you can read some of the more explosive lyrics below.

“I admit I f— wit all the ladies,” he sings at one point. “That’s both older and young ladies/But tell me how they call it ‘pedophile’ because of that s—/that’s crazy/You may have your opinions/Entitled to your opinions/But really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion?”

“I admit I am not perfect,” Kelly says later. “I never said I was perfect/Say I’m abusing these women/What the f—?/That’s some absurd s—/They brainwashed?/Really?/Kidnapped?/Really?/Can’t eat?/ Really?/Real talk/that s— sound silly.”

And then there’s this: “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.”

At numerous other points in the lengthy song, Kelly defends himself against the accusations lobbed against him. He is introspective at other moments. Much of the legal stuff is lyrically covered with a lack of clarity.

Other admissions include not going to church, not owning his own music, loving Steve Harvey, and that he is functionally illiterate. Kelly also says he was molested by a family member from age 7 to 14.
