Usher Sings From Experience

R+B hunk USHER promises his upcoming album will have a lot more depth than his others - because he finally has experience in the love situations he's singing about.

The 24-year-old YOU MAKE ME WANNA singer, currently dating TLC star ROZONDA 'CHILLI' THOMAS, was in his teens when he debuted with his eponymous album USHER in 1994, under the guidance of rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS.

But since moving on to producer JERMAINE DUPRI, Usher has realised he's now at an age where he's much better placed to be singing about love - because he's experienced it.

He says, "When PUFFY did my first album, a lot of what I was talking about I hadn't really experienced. It was more of less my being led to sing these type of records.

"When I got a little bit older and worked with Jermaine Dupri, I was fortunate to write a few things about my own personal life, or allow him to understand and come into my world."
