Usher has had a pretty exciting week so far.  Not only did he just salute to the late diva, Whitney Houston, this past Thursday evening but he also released a new video for his single, Numb.

According to, the montage of events shown throughout the video are based upon real life situations. One of the most significant is the failed Berlin concert of 2011 when after just one song, the singer “broke down” and couldn’t perform. He cancelled the show amidst boos and jeering from upset fans and blamed it on a sinus infection.

He later confessed during an interview last month with Oprah Winfrey that his divorce, custody battle with wife Tameka Foster and not being able to see his sons before the show, was the true cause of his meltdown.

Usher described the moment as “feeling like a failure, hopeless, paralyzed, and numb” and thought his career was over. Thank God he continued to persevere!
