Usher Titles New Album ‘The Shanertance’ [Update]

Usher

Usher’s new album title is bound to get people talking. The singer’s seventh LP will be called The Shanertance, reports CNN.

During an interview with U.K. radio station Capital FM, the R&B superstar revealed that he has been working on the follow-up to 2010’s Raymond v. Raymond with British singer-songwriter Labrinth.

“We actually haven’t finished this one, but I’m working with Labrinth and that is my big surprise for London,” said Usher. “I wanted to take a stab at his world… I can only imagine what me and Labrinth will do with this U.S. and U.K. connection.”

He also shared his desire to duet with Adele. “I think the world deserves an Usher and Adele record,” he added. “That’s what I think. That would be the other U.K. connection that I think everybody would be really fond of and enjoy.”

Usher’s first single “Climax,” produced by Diplo, is currently No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100, while The Shanertance is due later this spring.

UPDATE: Breathe easy. Contrary to reports, Usher’s upcoming album is not called The Shanertance. “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.

    No shade, but I’m tired of everybody wanting to do a duet with Adele. Can we try somebody new? I mean I feel like they just want to do it because she’s hot right now. I doubt they wanted to do it when she came out with “19.” It’s like everybody likes to hop on a bandwagon. Same thing when Nicki 1st came out, everybody wanted her on a record, but beforehand were they really saying anything, nope. I’m kinda excited for this album thou.

    @Dave, I agree. I wasn’t into Adele when she came up with ‘Chasing Pavements’ and I’m not into her now. With that being said, I feel like people just see dollar signs in a collab with her.

    “the world deserves an Usher and Adele track”???? really? I don’t think it’s necessary imo…

    this album title is Hoooooorrrrrriiiiiidddd…I’m sorry but whatever meaning he has behind the name cannot save the fact that it sounds horrible!!

    I’m a fan of his music so hopefully he doesn’t disappoint, and I definitely hope he doesn’t follow the same trend everyone else is doing by filling the album with a whole bunch of fist-pumping pop bull-ish…

    Usher fell off! I’d rather listen to Chris Brown any day. Usher lost his edge, way too many pop songs and not enough good RnB. He lost it.

    Ok... Reply:

    @JoeyCrack, He and Chris have to do pop songs. Climax not charting well proves that. Same for Chris. Anything that’s not pop just doesn’t chart well unless it’s Adele or someone SUPER popular. So what do they do to get buzz? Release a pop/club song. People complain about wanting to hear more Hip-hop or R&B but the truth is, when it’s finally put out there, they don’t buy it. So they put the other stuff on their albums and release the pop songs as singles. But also I think more people are getting into being more diverse and not sticking to one genre of music. Just my opinion.

    It’s said that after Usher had such a masterpiece called Confessions, and then every album after that was a major suckfest, at least with Here I stand he TRIED to still be more R’n’B and then with his last one, it was just like, nope. I’m going dance everyone, and I’m sure this is going to be a david guetta/redone/diplo record. Sorry, but redone and David Guetta are the WORST things to happen to music, the only justice redone does is with Gaga, you can’t say there shit’s bad, but with anyone else, no & guetta is just, disgusting to me. Diplo though, I do like. I listened to him back when M.I.A. and him had a thing, buttt people are taking him and running it. Music sucks.

  14. USHER'S NEW ALBUM IS NOT CALLED SHANERTANCE!

    Usher’s new Album is NOT called Shanertance. Usher was in London, LIVE on Capital FM radio with Rich Clarke and he said his album is NOT called Shanertance, and that he doesn’t know where this name came from. He even laughed at the name “Shanertance.” Usher said that the album does not have a name yet (or he’s not revealing it yet) The reports are FALSE lol!
