Usher has collaborations on the brain.
The “Climax” singer stopped by U.K. radio station Capital FM to tease his upcoming collaboration with British singer-songwriter Labrinth.
The track will be featured on his forthcoming album, “The Shanertance,” due out this year.
“We actually haven't finished this one, but I'm working with Labrinth and that is my big surprise for London," Usher said. “I wanted to take a stab at his world … I can only imagine what me and Labrinth will do with this U.S. and U.K. connection.”
But Labrinth isn’t the only Brit that Usher wants to harmonize with:
“I think the world deserves an Usher and Adele record,” the singer told the radio station. “That's what I think. That would be the other U.K. connection that I think everybody would be really fond of and enjoy.”
Usher might be feeling a little intimidated by the songstress. Adele’s “21” is the biggest-selling album since Usher’s “Confessions” sold about 8 million copies in 2004, according to Billboard.
“Unfortunately, [Adele’s] the closest to breaking my record for the last 10 years. So now, guys, don't go and buy that album right now,” he told Capital FM according to MTV.
