King of R&B R. Kelly shared his song “Shut Up” with gratitude to God for his life from jail as he currently awaits trial on sex crime charges connected to six women and girls of which the superstar has pleaded not guilty.
It was obvious that walls surrounding the jail couldn’t stop the R&B singer from hitting social media on his 54th birthday, January 8, to post a track written to address everyone who has confronted him about his alleged abuse of women.
The “I Wish, I Wish, I wish,” crooner shared a winning photo of him holding several championship belts as he uploads one verse from his 2011 song, “Shut Up,” to Instagram Friday, speaking of a “tsunami of rumors” ruining his career.
Lyrics of the uploaded song include, “After 22 years of a blessed career/ Had me lying in my hospital bed crying mad tears/ But just as I have many people hatin me, Had so many people loving me/ And let’s not forget the hood around the world covering me/ And to everybody that be calling me, Telling what they’ve been sayin about me/ Bringin me all of this negative s–t, ya’ll the ones I ain’t f–king with.”
Meanwhile, the chorus simply says, “Can I get a witness for all of this, When people all up in your business, tell em shut up, tell em shut up, tell em shut up! I’m talking to you!”
The embattled King of R&B, R Kelly captioned the upload, “Thank you God, for My Life!”
