He is one of the best-selling artists in American music, having sold some 23 million albums in the U.S. alone. To date, he has sold more than 65 million records worldwide. So why is Usher making headlines lately for an incident that has nothing to do with his music?
Ah, the perils of being a mentor to young Justin Bieber, who found himself in a bit of legal trouble in late January when he was arrested in Miami Beach for DUI. A few days later, Usher was photographed with Bieber in Panama at the Nitro City hotel, then again in the small beach town of Punta Chame. Many news outlets guessed that it was Usher, along with Bieber's manager Scooter Braun, who may have staged an intervention for the young pop star.
Playing counselor to Bieber aside, Usher has had plenty of balls in the air over the last calendar year. Sure, he released his seventh studio album, "Looking 4 Myself" all the way back in June 2012, but spent the majority of 2013 promoting the project. He pushed what he called "the most artistic of an album" he's ever had, even while the pieces were falling into place for album No. 8, which is rumored to involve Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox and Brian Alexander Morgna.
Usher recently served as coach on NBC's "The Voice," substituting for Cee Lo Green in the fourth season along with Shakira, who subbed for Christina Aguilera. Usher is scheduled to return to "The Voice" again for season six.
Since bursting onto the music scene in the mid-90s with his hit single, 'You Make me Wanna,' musical sensation Usher has reigned as the New King of Pop, a label attributed by the late Michael Jackson for more than a decade. With superior dance skills and an eclectic R & B style, Usher remains on top, satisfying his many fans with multiple Grammy wins, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards. His many number one hits include passionate songs about love such as 'U Got It Bad', laments about regret such as 'Confessions Part II' and energetic dance beats like 'Yeah!'
Usher was discovered by a record executive at a talent show in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. The choir boy with a passion for gospel inked his first record deal at the age of 14, guided by co-executive producer Sean 'Puffy' Combs. His first single, 'Think of You,' quickly went gold and led to other projects and connections within the music industry. By the time he graduated high school, the teen was working with the likes of Jermaine Dupri and Babyface. As he made the transition from boy to man, Usher also become a crossover sensation and launched an acting career.
These days, it's not just Usher's music-- and songs like 'OMG' and 'DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love' -- that has people talking. The R&B; icon has been a mentor to music superstar Justin Bieber since the Canadian singer got his big break -- also at the age of 14. The two have joined forces on a number of songs, including a duet on Bieber's holiday album, 'Under the Mistletoe.'On June 12 Usher released his seventh studio album, 'Looking 4 Myself,' a hybrid fusion of old-school R&B; and electro-soul. He also lent his voice to David Guetta's club smash, 'Without You,' and trained to play the role of Sugar Ray Leonard in the Roberto Duran biopic Hands of Stone. His 2011 tour grossed nearly $75 million dollars with 73 shows.
