Usher To Start 'Looking For Myself' in June
Usher will return with his much-anticipated seventh studio album, "Looking For Myself," on June 12, through RCA Records.
The follow-up to 2010's "Raymond v. Raymond" was previewed by the Diplo-produced slow jam "Climax," which hit the web on Valentine's Day. After the song's music video premiered on Vevo on Mar. 9, "Climax" climbed to No. 40 on this week's Hot 100.
"Looking For Myself" will include production from Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Max Martin and Salaam Remi, among others. Over the past year, Usher teamed up with David Guetta for the single "Without You," which peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100, as well as Romeo Santos for the Hot Latin Songs hit "Promise."
"Raymond v. Raymond," which featured the singles "OMG" and "Lil Freak," has sold 1.3 million copies since its March 2010 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Versus," a stopgap EP released as an addendum to "Raymond," was released in Aug. 2010.
