    Usher is hard at work on a new album!

    One of the songwriters working on the album shared some news about how things are going! Rico Love revealed that the "OMG" singer is "experimenting with different sounds. 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." We agree – Usher transcends genres.

    The album will be Usher's seventh and it will feature assists from guests stars like Jim Jonsin, Pharrell Williams, Miguel and Diplo!

    No word on when this baby is due out or anything like that. Right now, it's all in the rudimentary, nascent stages.

    What is your favorite Usher song?
