"Soon as I left the court house after my divorce trial was over I ran to the studio and opened up my chest and put my heart on the mic," Tyrese said explaining that making music and performing has been an outlet for him during these trying times.
The unreleased single, titled "Love Transactions" speaks to those who are married to someone rich and famous, have kids but are never truly in love, he calls it a "love transaction' and it's safe to assume this is reflective of his ongoing divorce trial.
He posed the question: "Have you ever felt that you was in a whole relationship or you know of someone that was in a whole relationship and marriage and then realized that it was never love, it was just a transaction?"
He originally teased the song via an Instagram post on May 23 where he mentioned he may never release the song "but it felt good as a motherf****r to get this out of my system."

While the song is very personal, he didn't want to get into much of what this process has been like for him. However, he shared that he titled his new album, Beautiful Pain, because "of all the beauty I've had to discover in my pain," he shared.
