In 2004, Usher and Alicia Keys turned heads with their fall hit single, "My Boo." The song became the official anthem for couples in love around the world. Even six years after its release, the song still receives moderate airplay, still warming hearts. The song helped establish Usher as a true force in the game.

The song was a part of Usher's classic Confessions album, one of the best-selling albums of all-time. All of Usher's hard work and determination paid off on that album. He spent over two years in the studio and he made a significant amount of money off the album. Now, it looks as if it is his time to pay up.

Not only did they record "My Boo" together, but the duo also created the 2005 hit, "Caught Up." Their work led to many people believing the two were dating. Those rumors were false, but the singing duo being sued is the truth. Wadena Pyratt claims to have written this song in 2002 and to have landed a record deal because of this song. She was signed to Keys' MBK label.

While her album never came out, her "Caught Up" song did and it helped establish Usher as an international pop star. She is planning to sue for pain and damaging and a percentage of all profits the album generated for both Alicia Keys and Usher.
