Clearly addressing what some saw as erratic behavior in defense of his two-year marriage to Foster-Raymond, Usher is now singing a different tune. "I done damn near lost my mama/I done been through so much drama/ I done turned into the man I never thought I'd never be/I'm ready to sign them papers."
Usher also states that his relationship with Foster-Raymond was opportunistic on her part. "I ain't afraid to say I have needs/the only time you here for me is when the bottles poppin' and everything is sweet/but I'm tired of sleeping in the other room/spending them long nights trying to figure out what in the hell in my heart I ain't do right."
Since announcing the split in June, the Grammy winner has remained mum on the details surrounding the dissolution of marriage. Our guess is that he's saving a good portion of those stories for his upcoming release tentatively titled 'Raymond vs. Raymond.'
The couple tied the knot in 2007 amid reports that their union caused a rift between Usher and his mother Jonetta Patton, who did not attend the ceremony. Following his nuptials Usher dropped his fifth album 'Here I Stand.' The record failed to come close to the colossal success of his previous release 'Confessions' which spawned several hits and sold over 1 million units in its first week.
His latest album is said to feature production from Jermaine Dupri, Ne-Yo and The Neptunes.
