Months after his wedding to Grace Miguel in Cuba, Usher is finally talking publicly about the secret occasion. 

"He got married!" Ellen DeGeneres told her audience during the singer's appearance on her self-titled talk show Friday. 

In early January, E! News confirmed the "I Don't Mind" singer had popped the question to his longtime girlfriend of seven years while photos of the beauty wearing an impressive diamond sparkler on that finger began to surface. 

However, the low-key couple kept their nuptials entirely under the radar, causing fans to speculate about a possible wedding after the duo shared a selfie of themselves in Havana with Usher wearing a mysterious gold wedding band.  

"They are extremely happy and the way it was done was very sweet and romantic," one insider told E! News after confirming that the couple had indeed wed. "He can't wait to spend the rest of his life with her."

As the Grammy winner explained to DeGeneres, the couple was indeed married, but fans were a bit faulty in their assumption. 

"You know what's funny? We put this picture up and we were actually just in Cuba on a cultural exchange and people were like,' Hey, they got married.' You know the ring is on the other finger, you guys," he joked. "But, we had a great time. Wonderful woman, Grace Raymond."

But, have the throes of wedded bliss caused the famed performer's musical hiatus? The singer hasn't released an album since 2012. Thankfully, DeGeneres got to the heart of the mystery with one direction question—where is the new music?

"Buffering," Usher joked in response. "The clock is's coming—next year."

In the meantime, the accomplished musical veteran has plans to host a series of master classes for those seeking the wisdom of an industry legend.

"This is a way that I can motivate people to pursue what they love—dancing, performing, entertaining," he said.

Well said, Mr. Raymond.
