Guilty

Album: Raymond v. Raymond (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This track from Raymond Vs Raymond, the sixth studio album of R&B artist Usher, features a guest appearances from his fellow Atlantan T.I. The pair trade bragging rights as Usher pleads guilty for becoming a heart breaker.
  • A few months prior to the album's release, Usher filed for divorce from his wife Tameka Foster. However, he told Billboard magazine that people had jumped to the wrong conclusion about Raymond Vs Raymond's concept. "People immediately thought, 'Oh, damn, he's about to talk about what happened in his marriage,' " Usher recalled. "But it would be too shortsighted to just talk about my relationship. A lot of the things I spoke about on 'Confessions' weren't my own experiences. It was an outlet for stories I'd heard."
