New Music Album: Usher "Looking For Myself"
With the release of his new single "Climax," Usher gears up to release his seventh studio album, "Looking For Myself"
It will feature production from Salaam Remi, Rico Love, Jim Jonsin and Max Martin.
The album has been in the works since at least last summer, when producer Rico Love, who got his start on Usher's classic album "Confessions", mentioned in an interview with BET.com that he'd just begun studio sessions for the upcoming project.
Another collaborator, Taio Cruz, spoke with MTV about what can be expected from the project. "He has very specific ideas of where he wants to go musically and sound-wise," he said. "He always wants there to be the soul in there. I'm kind of, not the opposite, but I'm always like, 'Let's get straight to the point and be really clear with the message and be simple." So we try to match those two worlds together: being soulful and, at the same time, catchy."
The album is set for release June 11.
