Eighteen years after making his debut and millions of records sold, Usher proves he’s still a force to be reckoned with in R&B. The international superstar has announced a title and release date for his seventh album.
The follow-up to 2010’s Raymond v. Raymond, entitled Looking for Myself, will arrive June 12 via RCA Records in standard and deluxe editions.
The lead single “Climax,” produced by Diplo, is currently No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the video has racked up 6 million views since its premiere in early March.
The 33-year-old singer is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on the project with collaborators including Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Salaam Remi, and Max Martin, among others.
Usher shot down previous reports that the album was called The Shantertance. “I’m not feeling the name of my new album, ‘The Shanetance’?? Where in the hell did this come from?? LMAO. Don’t believe everything you hear!” he tweeted.
