The 'OMG' star tells Capitalfm.com he's pleased to see the teen star "come into his own".
Usher has confessed that Justin Bieber's forthcoming new album 'Believe' is going to be "incredible" from what the pair have been working on and what he has heard.
The 'Climax' singer told Capitalfm.com that he is pleased to see how good the star has become as a song writer and loves the fact the Canadian pop star still wants to expand.
He confessed: "I'm very excited about the second phase of his career. As we all know, the sophomore is definitely one of the harder heels to get over but if you get over it successfully then you're great and from what I've heard and what we've been working on – together and apart – it's really been incredible.
"It's really good to have an artist who has success and still wants to expand and still wants to reach and find different ways to interpret himself and I'm really happy that he's able to come into his own – as a writer mostly and even having input inot his own production.
"At this age and at this time – to have some sense of influence just allows you to take a greater sense of ownership in what you're doing."
The American star also revealed that the singer will have a long career and always reminds his protegee of one of their first ever conversations on success.
"I think that there's a long story here I don't think this is a short one I don't think that it's going to be an overnight. I always go back to what I told him when we first met. You know you can be as big as you want to but you have to realise it's work that you have to put in and if you don't believe in it no one will," he added.
Meanwhile, Justin unveiled his brand new single and first offering from his album 'Boyfriend' earlier today (26th March) with fans and musicians such as The Wanted taking to Twitter to offer their praise on the new song.
