The project, released to streaming services on Friday is reported to be a bootleg, according to Sony Music representatives. While uploaded to Apple Music and Spotify, the unofficial release, which has since vanished, was a combination of unreleased and previously released music, including a trilogy of songs at the end of the album titled “I Admit It (I Did It),” which was previously released in 2018 as one 19-minute song.

“Why would I put an album out called 'I Admit It'” he said in an audio recording obtained by TMZ. He assured that he has no interest in creating or releasing music at this time as he is trying to focus on his appeal.

“I’m not putting out any albums,” Kelly said, “I don’t have any interest in putting out any albums.”

He stressed that this project was not him at all and even went as far to say that it is not his singing you heard. He hoped to prove this by singing a snippet of “When A Woman's Fed Up”

“I hope people recognize my voice and know that.”

The incarcerated singer believes that there is someone out there trying to jeopardize his appeal with the release of this project. “Seems like somebody wants this album out to mess with the appeal.”

Kelly is currently serving 30 years for committing federal sex crimes
