The 'Scream' singer is celebrating this week after his latest record topped the American chart.

Usher has scored his fourth consecutive number one album in America this week following the release of his new album 'Looking 4 Myself".

The Summertime Ball 2012 star launched his seventh studio offering last week and is now top of the US Billboard Top 200 this week, selling 128,000 copies in a week according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The 'Climax' singer previously topped the US chart with his albums 'Confessions' in 2004, 'Here I Stand' in 2008 and 'Raymond v. Raymond' back in 2010.

Last week Usher posted a message on Twitter thanking fans for their support of the record, and describing the recording process of 'Looking 4 Myself' as an "incredible journey".
