Usher Sets Date for Next Album
The soul singer aims for a fourth consecutive No. 1 disc with "Looking for Myself."
Usher’s search for Usher goes public this summer.
Looking for Myself, the seventh studio album from the soul juggernaut, will street June 12. The announcement comes two years to the day after the release of his chart-topping Raymond v. Raymond.
As the lead single “Climax” climbs the R&B and pop charts, Usher is putting the final studio touches on the RCA album. Looking for Myself – which features collaborators including Salaam Remi, Diplo, Rico Love, Jim Jonsin and Max Martin -- will be available in standard and deluxe editions.
The new record is likely to continue the seven-time Grammy winner’s hit streak. His past three albums have debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and gone platinum. His career high-water mark remains 2004’s Confessions, which topped the chart for nine weeks and has sold more than 9 million copies in the U.S., making it the second-biggest-selling album of the decade behind ’N Sync’s No Strings Attached.
Confessions also spawned four No. 1 singles. Usher’s nine chart-topping pop hits ties him for the 10th-most by any act in the history of Billboard’s Hot 100.
