Usher Makes No Apologies on A$AP Rocky Collaboration

Usher and A$AP Rocky

Usher may be a veteran in the game, but that doesn’t stop him from collaborating with new talent. The R&B superstar explains how he connected with A$AP Rocky on his upcoming album Looking 4 Myself.

The “Goldie” rapper guests on the Pharrell-produced “Hot Thing” off Usher’s seventh album, due June 12.

His goal was to collaborate with someone unexpected. “Before it was Luda, after that it was Jeezy, after that it was A$AP and also Rick Ross,” he told MTV News.

A$AP recorded his verse last month while Usher was performing at his off-Broadway show “Fuerza Bruta.”

“I really wanted to create something that I felt would work in both our worlds, a fun record that would be a little bit irresponsible,” explained Ursh. “You gotta just let it go. No apologies, fuck it.”

In addition to A$AP, other guests on Myself include Rick Ross (“Lemme See”), Pharrell (“Twisted”), and Luke Steele on the title track.

    @Jacky, He has done a song with Bey, another would be great but she’s working on her tour for atlantic city atm, plus blue is only 4 months so I don’t think she’s checking for features.
