Usher eyes Tinie Tempah duet

R&B superstar Usher has revealed that he is likely to duet with UK rapper Tinie Tempah after the two became fast friends while touring Europe.

Talking to MTV Usher revealed: "We talked about doing something together. He expressed an interest. He's a great guy and it’s very graceful of him to be so complimentary of me.”

The star added that Tinie has influenced his next album. Tinie’s hit ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ encouraged Usher to work with Swedish House Mafia in an attempt to gain a more European sound on his next record. “Those guys are hot,” he said. “There’s always something incredible coming from Europe, which I think the US is a little behind on.”
