Usher is teaming up with music producer/DJ David Guetta for his next album. The man behind mega-hits such as Kelly Rowland’s “When Love Takes Over” and the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” may be assisting Usher in his transition to making electro dance music.
Usher met up with Guetta, as well as Akon, in Paris while on an OMG tour stop. He told a Daily Star reporter, “I’ve always been a friend of Akon’s and wanted to do something incredible with David Guetta, too. It’s by no means finished but we made a pretty cool song. I’d like to get a new album out early next year.”
He added, “There’s always something incredible coming from Europe, which I think the US is a little behind on. I’m really excited to be here and bring a little ‘rev-pop’ to the UK.” SOURCE
It’s clear, based on his “OMG” and “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” hits that Usher’s making less and less generic R&B.
Do you approve of the change?
