Usher a reçu des éloges pour son prochain LP avec des pistes comme, “Scream”, “Lemme See” et “Twisted”. L’enregistrement présente des collaborations avec Rick Ross et Pharrell.

Usher’s new album is an “art-in-motion diary” which reflects on some of the “heavy transitions” in his life.

Usher says his upcoming record Looking 4 Myself is about his personal life.

“There’s an emotional side to it. Over the last three years of my life, it’s no secret I went through some heavy transitions and in that I really came out new. I came out feeling a sense of entitlement and a sense of ownership of all of that I went through to become better and in being able to survive it. So I was looking for something in the music,” he told MTV News during MTV First.

“I was looking for something in life. I was looking for something in it has always been right here. It has always been there. So I kind of used the music as a diary in a way, but a creative, artistic, art-in-motion diary.”

Usher has explained the concept behind the lead single from the album, Climax.

The promo sees him as a jilted lover who is contemplating shooting his girlfriend’s other interest. Usher insists the song isn’t about sex.

“Climax was an interpretation to really give people a better understanding ’cause I felt like people really looked at the record for what you heard first, which was Climax. So, people thought sex. It’s not about sex. Well, climax is about sex, but not the song. Just so we’re clear,” he smiled.

“The song is really about kind of the crescendo of a relationship, where you’ve reached a place where you’re gonna dive in or let it go. And the Climax is what it is.”

 Le nouvel album d’Usher est un “art-in-motion diary” lequel reflete quelques unes des “lourdes transitions” de sa vie.

Usher a dit que son nouvel album “Looking 4 Myself” parle de sa vie personnelle.

“Il y a un côté émotionnel à cela. Pendant les trois dernières années de ma vie, ce n’est pas un secret que j’ai passé quelques lourdes transitions et dans lequel je suis vraiment sorti nouveau. Je suis sorti sentant le sens du droit et le sens de la propriété de tous que j’ai passé pour devenir mieux et dans la capacité d’en réchapper. Donc je cherchais quelque chose dans la musique,” il a dit à MTV News pendant MTV First.

“Je cherchais quelque chose dans la vie. J’y cherchais quelque chose était toujours juste ici. C’était toujours là. Ainsi j’ai utilisé la musique comme un agenda en un sens, mais un agenda, créatif, artistique, d’art en mouvement.”

Usher a expliqué le concept derrière le single de l’album, “Climax”.

La promo le voit comme un amant qui envisage de tuer dans l’intérêt de sa copine. Usher insiste sur le fait que la chanson ne parle pas de sexe.

“Climax était une interprétation pour vraiment donner une meilleure compréhension aux gens  qui regardent juste l’enregistrement pour ce que vous avez d’abord entendu, ce qui était Climax. Ainsi, les gens ont pensé au sexe. Ce n’est pas à propos de sexe. Bien, climax est à propos de sexe, mais pas la chanson. Donc nous sommes clairs”, il a sourit.

La chanson est vraiment à propos du crescendo d’une relation, où vous avez atteint un endroit où vous allez plonger dedans ou le laisser aller. Et c’est ce qu’est Climax”.

Le chanteur de “Climax” a dit à Billboard que dans la création de son septième studio il c’est assuré de donner son maximum.

“C’est à propos d’offrir le meilleur de moi. Ce n’est pas différent d’un boxeur : rester debout devant la personne qui essaye de vous mettre ko, il doit donner son maximum pour sortir de ce ring”, il a confessé.

La star est actuellement entrain de préparer son rôle de Sugar Ray Leonard dans le nouveau film Hands of Stone, où apparaitrons Gael Garcia Bernal et Robert De Niro.

You may not know the name Eric Bellinger, but you’re most likely familiar with his music. As a renowned songwriter, he’s crafted recent hits, including Usher’s new banger “Climax” and Jennifer Hudson’s “Think Like a Man.”

 But even with his singing career just taking off, Bellinger hasn’t forgotten about his bread and butter. In an exclusive interview with BET.com, he revealed he also wrote Usher’s brand-new single “Let Me See.” “I’m definitely excited about [it],” he says of the song, which is slated to drop within days. “Rick Ross is featured on there; Jim Johnson produced it. It’s really going to live in the clubs for a long time.”

 With his songwriting on “Climax” and “Let Me See” leading the way, Bellinger is ecstatic about Usher’s new album, Looking for Myself, which is scheduled for a June 12 release. “With this next album, he’s about to change everybody’s perspective on music,” he says. “Honestly, [he's] birthing a whole new sound. The Usher that everyone loves is coming back, [but] it’s like he’s hungrier than ever. From concepts to his vocals to the performance, each song is a movie in itself. You definitely have a lot to look forward to.”

 Bellinger said that he and Usher have amazing chemistry, noting that he’s been a huge fan and student of the superstar’s music for years. “From the first day we actually worked, it’s just been incredible,” Bellinger said. “I don’t know how we hit it off so well. I’ve been looking at him as a R&B singer and studying his music for so long that I was already in his world when it came to melody, and I already had put my mindset where he would come [in terms of] different tones and adlibs and concepts. It was easier for us to be on the same page because I’ve been studying him for so long… I’m sure he appreciated it and was able to see it instantly.”
