Polow Da Don says he is the culprit

The producer of Usher’s latest studio material is to blame for the leak of unfinished material, it has emerged.

Polow Da Don, recently leaked the songs ‘Love in This Club’ online, and last night, the producer told MTV.

“I actually leaked it. I’m the culprit. It’s no secret. I told him when I saw him that I had to put my relationship on the line. ‘If it fails, I know you probably gonna be mad at me. I know you probably won’t f— with me anymore.’

Da Don said Usher was not angry about the leak, and that he leaked the songs after the Usher track ‘Yeah!’ was a huge success after it was leaked by Lil’ Jon in 2003.
