NEW YORK, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Usher Raymond IV's sixth studio album, "Raymond v. Raymond" is to be released in March in the United States, Jive Records said Wednesday.

"'Raymond v. Raymond' finds the iconic singer addressing various topics reflecting the dichotomies of life," his record label said in a release. "It is described as a natural follow-up to Usher's ground-breaking 2004 'Confessions' album, which earned him the distinction of being the 'Top Hot 100 Artist of the Decade' with 13 consecutive Top 20 singles -- seven reaching No. 1 and collectively spending the most weeks atop the chart for any act in the decade -- according to Billboard magazine. The new album contains the smoldering signature ballads and hypnotic up-tempos the multitalented, all-around entertainer is known for."

The album is set for release March 30.

He is to appear at Sunday's Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles.
