Rico Love Gives Update on Usher’s Eighth Studio Album

Rico Love revealed he and Usher are in the studio to work on the singer’s eighth studio album. Rico Love Gives Update on Usher’s Eighth Studio Album

Usher’s 2012 effort Looking 4 Myself saw him branch out stylistically and musically while still experimenting with the electronic sounds of 2010’s Raymond v. Raymond. Collaborators, including songwriter Eric Bellinger, have spoke about a follow up, and Rico Love confirmed it’s in the works with MTV News.

Love, a long-time collaborator who worked with the singer on 2004’s Confessions, explained they’ve been in the studio together and that Usher continues to get better as a singer. He explained: "He's in a great place, and sonically, he's sounding the best he's ever sounded. But he always gets better vocally with each album. I always noticed that about him."

The two have had arguments in the past, but it appears that both are in a good place right now. About working together again, Love said: "We got in the studio and made something very amazing; we've been speaking every day since. And that's, like, my real family — he put me on. Usher gave me my opportunity. I always say, 'It's God and Usher who are responsible for my career.' "

Both Love and Bellinger hinted that Usher will return to his traditional R&B sound with this effort.

Looking 4 Myself turned into another successful release for the singer and generated singles “Climax,” which featured Diplo, “Scream,” and “Lemme See.”
