A candid new track sees Ray J express regret over the transgressions that have overshadowed his career – amongst them a notorious sex tape with former girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The 33-year-old brother of R&B songstress Brandy Norwood has just released Never Shoulda Did That, a two-and-a-half minute confessional in which he reflects on some of his low points.
Featuring prominently is his fractious relationship with newly married Kim, whose presence is felt in an accompanying video, posted on YouTube, by an actress who bears an uncanny resemblance to the voluptuous TV personality.

The former couple documented their private life in a graphic 2007 video, watched by millions – in which Kim performs a sex act on the singer and rapper, who reflects on the incident with the line: ‘f***ing b**ches on camera, shouldn’t a did that s**t.’
Ray also looks back at his 2011 arrest in Las Vegas following a brawl with rapper Fabolous at the city’s Palms hotel – an unsavoury incident that stemmed from jokes aimed at Ray on Twitter.
A live radio interview shortly afterwards saw Ray hotly dispute claims that Fabolous ‘got the better of him’ during the fight, and this too features in the new track – with the singer declaring: ‘Calling the radio station, shouldn’t a did that s**t.’

There’s also a reference to his straying from another ex-girlfriend, Princess Love – who makes a brief cameo in the black and white video.
The new track comes after Ray was accused of making ‘incidental’ contact with a female patron’s bottom at the Regent Beverly Wilshire hotel on May 30.
But, according to TMZ, ‘new evidence’ has been brought forward, alleging that he grabbed a bosom in front of witnesses during the disruption.
According to the website, the former Moesha star got into an altercation at the upscale establishment’s Side Bar, and was subsequently thrown out.
He allegedly became aggressive in the valet area and hotel security made a citizen’s arrest
Officers with the Beverly Hills Police Department took him into custody and Ray J allegedly spat on an officer, which prompted the battery charge.
