Speaking about his new album, Usher told Capital FM: "We actually haven't finished this one but I'm working with Labrinth and that is my big surprise for London.

"Well you know me and Tinie Tempah we toured together here in London and it was my opportunity to get close to him and just listen to all the different things that he and Labrinth had been working on and listen to all the music that I know and admire that Labrinth did."

He added: "I wanted to take a stab at his world - no different than Diplo - and you look at the results of that; so I can only imagine what me and Labrinth will do with this US and UK connection."

Usher is currently preparing to release his new single 'Climax' in the UK on April 15.
