The biggest admission Kelly makes in the song is that he has "made some mistakes" in the past.
He also says that while he does "fuck with all the ladies that's both older and young", the allegations of being a pedophile are "crazy", adding that he's only opening up about all of this because of how "they tryna play me". All this work to be successful, when you abandon me cause of what you heard'.
He goes on to address his illiteracy ("I admit I can't spell for shit") and admits to having sex with many women including fans ("I admit I'm a freak"). "They're doing good in their lives right now, why would they wanna tear down another brother", Kelly sings. "Real talk, that s**t sound silly".
"Believe me, its hard to admit all this, but I'm in my feelings about this sh-/ But I had to set the f-in' record straight". In the song, Kelly claims he's broke and has to keep touring "just to pay rent". Weeks later, Spotify removed his music from its playlists, citing its new policy on hate content and hateful conduct.
The singer - who compares himself to disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, who was found guilty of sexual assault earlier this year - also explained on his song why he chose to address the rumors this way.
He also points a finger at Chicago journalist Jim DeRogatis, who first reported the existence of the sex tape at the center of the child-pornography case, ultimately dismissed, against Kelly in 2000, and has continued to report on the singer's alleged misconduct in the years since. "To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is/You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years", he sings.
Sony unveils 48MP camera sensor for smartphones
Its record-breaking 48-megapixel sensor is bound to be a step in the right direction for the firm's ambitious goals. The increased pixel count will enable great imaging experience even on smartphones which use digital zoom.
"I was told I had to sell my cars, I was told I couldn't get a loan/Said I owed 20 million to the IRS and they were coming to get my home", he sings.
He addresses accusations that he has abused women and led a sex cult in the following lyrics: "What's the definition of a cult?".
Halfway through the song, Kelly says that a family member touched him sexually from a young age until he was 14.
"Kelly also mentions a conversation he had with Wendy Williams about Aaliyah, singing, "[Wendy] said, 'What about Aaliyah said?' Love.
He continues, "What's the definition of a cult?".
While the singer does not actually admit any of the allegations, he addresses majority. " ... Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career/But guess what?" "We always tell our clients, 'You may think that by saying I didn't do it, that helps, but there's always a chance for a prosecutor to find something in what you said that does not support your position'".
