Usher released a new single from his upcoming album on Monday. The song, â€œPapers,â€ is reportedly about the R&B singerâ€™s high-profile divorce.
Usher, whose birth name is Usher Raymond IV, filed for divorce from his wife, Tameka Foster, in June 2009. The songâ€™s producer, Sean Garrett, told MTV that â€œPapersâ€ was produced before Usher officially filed for divorce:
“Letâ€™s say I wrote a record for Usher three or four months ago where I really didnâ€™t have any idea of what he was going through personally… I felt that was the direction we needed to go. I felt that was the question everyone wanted to know: Was [his relationship] good or was it bad? Was it right? Are you happy or youâ€™re not?”
Usherâ€™s new album, â€œMonster,â€ which features the new song, is scheduled for a December release.
