Ruben Studdard is putting his recent divorce to music in his newest song.
When most people are going through a breakup, they prefer to keep the pain to themselves. Ruben is not most people.
The Velvet Teddy Bear is singing about his split from Surata Zuri McCants in a track called "June 28th (I’m Single)." To be clear, June 28, 2008, was the couple’s wedding date.
For the video, director Lenny Bass had the enormous challenge of telling the heartbreaking story of Ruben’s divorce. "I was trying to figure out a way to create a video that didn’t feel too heavy," he said. "How can we tell this story that can be somewhat fun and make light of a situation that’s not so light."
Lenny must have figured out the perfect formula, because a behind-the-scenes look at the video shows Ruben in pretty good spirits during the video shoot.
