The 'OMG' star exclusively tells Capitalfm.com that the pair have teamed up on his upcoming studio record.
Usher's forthcoming new album will feature a collaboration with Labrinth, Capitalfm.com can exclusively reveal.
The 'Love In This Club' star admitted he was thrilled to "take a stab" in the singer-songwriter's world and can "only imagine" what the pair will do with their "US and UK connection".
Speaking about his new album, he confessed: "We actually haven't finished this one but I'm working with Labrinth and that is my big surprise for London."
"Well you know me and Tinie Tempah we toured together here in London and it was my opportunity to get close to him and just listen to all the different things that he and Labrinth had been working on and listen to all the music that I know admire that Labrinth did.
"I wanted to take a stab at his world – no different then Diplo – and you look at the results of that – so I can only imagine what me and Labrinth will do with this US and UK connection."
Labrinth had teased the idea of working with Usher as wel las John Legend earlier this month although nothing had been confirmed until now.
Meanwhile, Usher will release his new single 'Climax' in the UK on 15th April.
