Having sold over nine million copies of his "Confessions," Usher is still unsure of a release date for his new album. "He has been taking a pretty long time to put it out, but I think he's ready now," says Jermaine Dupri, who has worked closely with Usher for years. "The last couple times I've been around [him], you could tell he's got the bug to hurry up and put this record out. He wants to get back out here and give the people that. He's got that itch."
"The Realest,", produced by Jurmaine Dupri, is rumored to be the first single. T-Pain also helped produce the album with "All the Time," and Ludacris does a guest spot on the song "Dat Girl Right There," which has leaked onto the internet.
