After countless push backs, fans probably thought this album would never see the light of day- on store shelves that is. Usher announced Wednesday, January 27, that “Raymond v. Raymond” will finally drop March 30, 2010.

A question about the album’s hype and expectancy was one of the initial reasons for the set back, but now anticipation for the album is sure to be well built up. Two official singles for the album have already been released: the exposed divorce documented track, “Papers” and the escalating hit “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)”, which features rapper Plies. The video has hit the airwaves last week and has been gaining positive reviews.

Before the album drops, Usher will continue to make headlines involving clever promo antics and of course, his personal life. Subsequently to his participation with this past Sunday Grammys’ tribute to Michael Jackson, Usher will also be showing more of himself on stage which he will perform on the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and NBA All-Star weekend in Atlanta. The singer’s new dance track “More” which is featured in numerous NBA promotions, will have a special video released February 14, the same day as his All-Star performance. Also sharing the Valentine’s Day All-Star halftime roster of performances are Shakira and Alicia Keys.

That’s all well and dandy, but what may be unfavorable attention are the recent rumors that have surfaced about Usher, which includes his personal life. Rumors circulated over the net last month about Usher and former TLC girlfriend Chilli getting back together. Supposedly two entertainment insiders confirmed the pair has rekindled their flame and has started dating again…daddy must be home for real right? The highly-publicized couple first began dating in 2000. But after the allegations of the infidelity on Usher’s part, Chilli called it quits. As much as fans of the old couple would love for this fire to be re-lit, they can go ahead and throw water on it. Usher’s rep has denied his involvement in new relationship with Chilli.

The R&B superstar may have taken a hiatus prior to the upcoming release of his sixth studio album “Raymond v. Raymond,” but he hasn’t forgotten the formula of a great musical project. Producers on the album are noted to be ranging from Jermaine Dupri, The Runners, T-Pain, Polow Da Don, Ne-Yo, Anthony Hamilton, The Neptunes, Adman Levine, Tricky Stewart and more. As far as features, you can expect to hear vocals from Nicki Minaj, T.I. and more.
