Surprise R. Kelly Album ‘I Admit It’ Arrives On Streaming Services Before Being Pulled+Sony Music Reps Confirm Album Was Not An Official Release

Posted December 9, 2022

R. Kelly isn’t letting being behind bars stop him from keeping his music alive. On Friday, the controversial singer released a surprise album titled ‘I Admit It’ to streaming services despite protests and calls to remove his music from streaming services.

Despite currently serving a 30-year prison sentence after being convicted of sex trafficking and racketeering in a federal trial in New York the singer was somehow able to release the new music. In September, he was found guilty on six counts in his federal child porn trial in Chicago. He will be sentenced in February.

 The 13-track collection includes some new and unreleased music including tracks titled “I Found Love,” “Good Old Days,” and “Freaky Sensation’ and concludes with the 3-part title track.

On ‘I Admit It,’ Kelly seemingly uses the track as a confessional and takes the opportunity to address the sexual assault allegations for which he has been found guilty.

Kelly previously uploaded a 19-minute version of the track to SoundCloud back in 2018, but this marks the first time the music has appeared on streaming services.

While the album arrived early Friday, it was later pulled off of Apple Music and Spotify.

A Sony Music representative confirmed with TMZ that despite the album’s claim of being a release from Legacy Release, it is not true, and appears this is a bootleg version. It’s still unclear how the album was dropped and who was behind putting it out.
