    Usher, who dropped Looking4Myself earlier this week, told MTV that he was talking to the late Amy Winehouse about working together before she died last July.

    The R&B crooner approached Winehouse's producer Salaam Remi about working together, but never actually managed to make it into the studio with neo-soul diva. "There was few a conversations that took place, but we never quite made it to it," he said. "I would have loved it. It could have been one of the most incredible records ever. A voice like that comes once in a lifetime."

    Usher also said that he bumped into Winehouse in London once and offered her a guest list spot for his show, but she blew him off. He said, "Before you know it we talked and exchanged information and I invited her to a show and she didn't come."

    Would an Usher + Amy Winehouse collab have been awesome or "meh," in your opinion?
