Usher’s ready to start a revolution. The “OMG” singer, who is currently in the early stages of recording his next LP, is setting out to create a new genre of music on the follow-up to last year’s Raymond v. Raymond. Instead of dipping into Euro-pop like he did in 2010, Ursh is planning on making an album’s worth of “Revolutionary Pop.”
“I’m a consumer of culture and love mixing styles and inspirations, both in my music and my style,” the superstar told StyleList. “I’m working on a new genre of music—Revolutionary Pop—which combines several music genres to create a new sound experience.”
His fauxhawk also reflects the style of music he wants to develop with his seventh studio album. “I love that people are talking about the new hair, it represents who I am now and the creative movement of Revolutionary Pop,” he stated.
Though details are scarce surrounding the new project, Usher will be teaming back up with songwriter Rico Love, who penned his recent hits “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)” and “There Goes My Baby.”
