Usher To Record Track With Tinie Tempah

And the OMG singer addresses the rumours about him and Becks...

Usher looks set to duet with Tinie Tempah, after the two become friends when the Pass Out rapper supported him on his European tour.

"We talked about doing something together,” Usher said of himself and Tinie. “He expressed an interest. He's a great guy and it’s very graceful of him to be so complimentary of me.”

The Yeah! star added that the Tinie hit Miami 2 Ibiza influenced him to contact Swedish House Mafia in an attempt to get a more European sound on his next album. “Those guys are hot. There’s always something incredible coming from Europe, which I think the US is a little behind on.”

Usher also revealed that he recorded a track with David Guetta and Akon when his tour hit Paris recently. “I’ve always been a friend of Akon’s and wanted to do something incredible with David Guetta too. It’s by no means finished but we made a pretty cool song. I’d like to get a new album out early next year.”

Speaking backstage at his Manchester gig, Usher jokingly addressed the rumours that he and his good mate David Beckham are both blessed in the trouser department. “I’m surprised people say David and I are well-endowed because of what they see when I’m on stage and David in his underwear ads.

“How would I know? We’re friends but not like that,” Ush told reporters. “We don’t have pyjama parties.”
