Usher talks longevity & paving the way for Chris Brown & Trey Songz on 'The Breakfast Club'...

Twenty years into his career, and Usher will go down as a legend.

In fact, he's already cemented his place in R&B. On November 1st, he will launch his 'UR Experience' tour with August Alsina and revealed to 'The Breakfast Club' on Monday that his new album 'UR' is not yet completed (he’s recorded up to 40 songs). Don't expect any juice from it. The record won't be about his personal life like past albums.

I think that ship sailed long ago with 'Confessions.' When he tried to put out that song addressing his divorce from Tameka, he finally realised this type of gimmick was only going to work for him once. Then he put all his focus into doing the club music. He describes his collaboration with Drake as a 'fun' record, and even expresses his views on R&B’s new generation. It's all love and he is proud to have paved the way for newer acts like Chris Brown, August Alsina and Trey Songz.
