Usher is cooking up some fire for his next album. The music superstar hit the studio with todayâ€™s top hitmakers including Pharrell, Jim Jonsin, Rico Love, and Diplo to lay down some new tracks for his seventh LP, due in 2012.
â€œRight now weâ€™re just experimenting with different sounds,â€ said Rico, who penned â€œThere Goes My Babyâ€ off 2010â€™s Raymond v. Raymond. â€œMy job is to make sure it stays classic. I donâ€™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.â€
One insider who heard the new material tells Rap-Up.com, â€œItâ€™s the most ridiculous music Iâ€™ve ever heard Jim and Rico make. Amazing!â€
