1. Jermaine Dupri talks about new Usher album
Usher has been in all kinds of drama, the latest being that herpes scandal that has kind of faded away but still hasn’t been forgotten. Jermaine Dupri has assured one thing Usher’s doing and that is keeping the tracks bumpin.
Dupri confirmed that Usher is hard at work on a new album with himself, Bryan Michael Cox, and Rico Love helping him out for the album.
“This album is going to be heavy, it’s going to make you go, oh s***” Dupri said about Usher’s upcoming album. “We’re not playing about this being Confessions 3.”
