When Usher is recording a new album, he likes to isolate himself from the world as far as music is concerned. Apparently the singer doesn’t listen to the radio and mostly listens to preachers nowadays. But he knows what’s getting the most play nowadays.
"I really don’t listen to the radio that much, but I’m guessing ‘Party Like a Rockstar’,” he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “To tell you the truth, I listen to more inspirational speeches than anything. Bishop Eddie Long and T.D. Jakes. Because if you listen to other artists too much you may start to sound like them. So I listen to inspirational things mostly so I can develop as a man, and then hopefully an artist."
Usher’s album isn’t due until November, but in the meantime, Usher along with R. Kelly are promoting their new single together, “Same Girl”. The video for the song launched this week and you can peep it HERE:
