Warning: This song contains explicit lyrics.

R. Kelly is addressing allegations of sexual abuse against him in his new song.

On Monday, the 51-year-old rapper dropped a new track on SoundCloud, a 19-minute song called "I Admit." Kelly shared a link to his song on Twitter Monday morning, writing, "Today is the day you've been waiting for."

In the lyrics of the song, Kelly admits to a series of things that he's done in his life. Kelly starts the song by singing, "I admit I done made some mistakes/And I have some imperfect ways."

He later sings, "I admit I f--k with all the ladies, that's both older and young ladies/But tell me how they call it pedophile because that s--t is 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."

A year ago, Kelly was accused of holding a group of ladies hostage in a "cult." Shortly after the reports surfaced, one of Kelly's alleged captives came forward to deny that she's being held hostage.

In his new song, Kelly seems to call out those accusations against him, singing, "I admit that I am not perfect, I never said I was perfect/Said I'm abusing these women, what the f--k that's some absurd s--t/They're brainwashed, really?/Kidnapped, really?/Can't eat, really?/Real talk, that s--t sound silly."

"What's the definition of a cult?" Kelly later asks in the song. "What's the definition of a sex slave? Go to the dictionary, look it up/Let me know I'll be here waiting."

Kelly goes on to deny that he's a "monster" or a "beast."

You can listen to the full song above.
