Posted By on April 9, 2007

R&B singer, Usher has inked a multi-million deal with Liz Claiborne to develop a new fragrance line.

The Grammy winner's scents for both men and women are expected to hit department stores this fall. According to Women's Wear Daily Usher-themed clothing and accessories are also in the works.

Usher will join the already overcrowded market of celebrity designed fragrances including popular scents by Sean John, Jennifer Lopez, Ashanti, Paris Hilton and Derek Jeter.

In related news, last week Usher announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend and stylist Tameka Foster.

Musically, Usher recently jumped on the popular "Ice Box" remix by Omarion and confirmed on Ryan Seacrest's radio show that his forthcoming as-yet-untitled CD will definitely feature a collaboration with rapper Jay Z
