While many are resting soundly in the early morning, Usher Raymond is spending time with his sons. The artist tells Billboard exclusively that the mornings are his, Naviyd, and Usher V’s for the taking.
“I’m not a morning person, but I’ve become one as the result of having kids,” explains the singer. “The morning is my private time to spend with my boys. The music industry doesn’t allow you to go to bed until five in the morning anyway. You have to just keep rolling.”
Although he experiences numerous challenges as a single father, Usher manages to overcome them through his creative expressions. “Every album I’ve made represented a specific thing that was happening in my life,” shares the star. “Not until now did I think to look back at my life and take inspiration from my own music.”
Usher and ex-wife Tameka Raymond have two kids together. Usher V will celebrate his seventh birthday next month, while Naviyd will turn 6-years-old in December.
