In a surprising revelation, singer Usher told a British newspaper of his plans to repackage his new album with a Justin Timberlake collabo.
Usher spoke with The Daily Mail newspaper last week and all but admitted that his album, Here I stand – which dropped today – will fail miserably.
Rather than talk about the songs on the album – Usher discussed songs he plans to add to the re-release, including a collaboration with Timberlake of whom Usher once said, “There simply is no comparison between me and Justin. He can’t even stand in the same lane as me, ever.”
Now Usher speaks like a man who is forced to face the harsh realities of dismal pre-sales estimates.
In his interview with the Mail, Usher said he regrets dissing Timberlake now that he needs him:
“I regret it, because he’s a great friend of mine now. I was young and didn’t know better. We were both being kids and he turned out to be a really cool guy, and we’re talking about doing something together for the repackaging of my album. If we ever worked together, though, it would be the biggest record ever.”
Sorry, Usher, but that train has left the station.
