'LaLaLa' singer Usher teased with Billboard yesterday that there may be a 2020 album to look forward to and the singer also shared that he will be performing in New Orleans at the Allstate Fan Fest on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest.

New Year's Rockin' Eve is a much-celebrated traditional show that takes place every year often across the United States. It features a lengthy list of famous music artists that perform to ring in the new year.

The 41-year-old happily shared his excitement over the event, saying, "What better place to bring in the new year? They’ve been doing it for a very, very long time, and I’m really happy to now, after 40 years, be able to ring it in on my 41st year. Couldn’t come at a better time. (sic)"

The singer also spoke about his experience working with Ella Mai on 'Don't Waste My Time', which officially released the second week of December. He stated that he is genuinely a fan of her voice and that he felt the song needed a woman's perspective. So after the two met up, the second verse was changed to a female's story. Usher acknowledged that Mai and he had done a great job together, stating, "It’s got that classic R&B feel. Between everything she’s done, the audience she’s growing, and the audience I’ve been able to accumulate over years and years, it’s a happy moment. I do think it’s just a really great record that has great positive energy and brings both of our audiences together."


Although much speculation has been circulating about a new album, the singer has not revealed any major details, but said, "There’s more to come. If you like this, stay tuned."
