Usher’s ‘Papers’ Debuts, Singer Airs Dirty Laundry in New Song

R&B star Usher is ready to be done with his soon-to-be ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond and the singer puts the ordeal to a beat with the release of his latest song ‘Papers.’ Just as expected the lyrics of the song are as juicy as they are candid. “Who the hell argues and fights like dogs at 6 in the morning?/ I know its gonna’ be some more s— tonight,” he sings. “Our pastor’s calling telling me I done went too far and/ I’m seen around town and my friends can’t recognize me, ‘cuz I took a chance on love.”

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.
