There are a few collaborations featured on Usher‘s upcoming album ‘Looking 4 Myself.’ Among the duets featured on the collection are ‘Lemme See‘ with Rick Ross, ‘Twisted’ with Pharrell Williams and the title song with Luke Steele. But Ursh has revealed that he also collaborated with A$AP Rocky for his upcoming album, as well.

The Harlem spitfire appears on the Pharrell-blessed joint ‘Hot Thing,’ which, by all accounts, should be a hot song. Usher wanted to collaborate with someone that no one would have expect and A$AP Rocky was the perfect candidate. “Before it was [Ludacris], after that it was [Young] Jeezy, after that it was A$AP and also Rick Ross,” he told MTV News.

“I really wanted to create something that I felt would work in both our worlds, a fun record that would be a little bit irresponsible,” he continues. “You gotta just let it go. No apologies, f— it.”

As for the song ‘Lemme See,’ Usher only wanted one person for the track, the bossman himself, Rick Ross. “That record really called for his voice,” he said.

‘Looking 4 Myself’ hits stores on June 12.
