Usher has confirmed that Drake will feature on his new album.

The 'Love In This Club' hitmaker is currently working on his eighth studio LP 'UR', which is expected to be released later this year, and he's revealed the Young Money star has been helping him with the project.

He told MTV News: ''He's extremely talented, man.

''He's nice. Money really knows what he's doing. He really understands how to analyse a beat and then recognise a cadence. Because hip-hop is that way; it's not just words and a rhythm.

''You gotta understand the cadence of what the song is saying, so that when you're on it, you know how to get it.''

Drake will not be the only artist from Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment record label to feature on the album, however, as Usher and Nicki Minaj's collaboration, 'She Came To Give It To You', will also be on the track list, alongside Usher's recent single, 'Good Kisser'.

Meanwhile, Nicki recently revealed Drake was ''excited as hell'' to receive a lap dance from her in the video for her single 'Anaconda'.

She said previously: ''After the lap dance, he was excited like hell. He was like, 'Yo, do you understand? I'm the man after this video come out!' We were just laughing. But it's always good to do stuff like that with Drake because we're so close.''
