The 33-year-old crooner was pictured with the hit-makers on Pharrell’s Billionaire Boys Club blog. Along with Pharrell, Usher has also been working in the studio with Jim Jonsin and Rico Love on the forthcoming release.
“Right now we’re just experimenting with different sounds,” Rico Love said of the upcoming project. “My job is to make sure it stays classic. I don’t feel like Usher is just a Top 40 artist or just an R&B artist or just a rhythmic artist. I gotta make records that connect to all formats.”
In a recent interview, the “There Goes My Baby” singer told StyleList that he is working on a new sound that he referred to as “revolutionary pop,” which is said to be formed of a mixture of genres.
Another R&B singer who has been working on a new sound is Miguel, who has also been in the studio with Usher as of lately. This should definitely be interesting to hear!
