Update: Usher’s Unborn Child Takes Precedent Over Album

For all you Usher fans who were waiting for the R&B singers’ next album, sorry to say that you will have to wait until 2008. According to an industry insider, the release will not happen this year due to issues in Usher’s personal life, relating to wife Tameka Foster and his unborn child. “The album had been in the works for over a year but he put in on the back burner when Tameka got pregnant…now it looks like it’s never going to happen,” says the insider. The insider continues, “Usher only listens to Tameka now, and she wants all Usher’s focus to be on her and the baby.” The couple who wed in August, are expecting later this year. On another note, Usher will still break the bank with the launch of his two new fragrances: Usher For Men and Usher For Women. “I wanted to do something for my female fans as well as my male fans,” he says about the fragrances. “I want to leave everybody feeling right. I wanted to shut it all the way down. I felt the only way to get acclimated into this business is to take into account there are two directions you can go into: male or female. Nowadays entrepreneurships start in any direction. I take notes from great designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford. These people were able to fully introduce an entire lifestyle brand. Me, I decided to start with fragrance. Clothing is coming. There are other businesses and other ventures as an entrepreneur you can look forward to. This is the one that will get directly on your skin.”
