He’s been busy nurturing new talent on “The Voice,” but Usher hasn’t forgotten his roots. At the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles Thursday night, the pop performer busted out his best dance moves for the world premiere of “Love Never Felt So Good,” a never-before-heard track from the late Michael Jackson.
Originally written and recorded in 1983 (and re-engineered for 2014 by a star-studded production team), the uptempo single is slated to appear on Jackson’s posthumous album “Xscape,” due out May 27. For now, fans can download the single through iTunes.
Usher isn’t neglecting his own music, either. He stopped by TODAY Friday to share a sneak peek at his latest: the video for the new single “Good Kisser,” which drops May 5. The brief teaser features bumpin’ beats, sultry finger snaps, and Usher’s signature sliding steps. “Kisser, kisser,” he sings in a hushed voice.
“The question is, who’s the girl he’s talking about?” TODAY’s Carson Daly wondered after the clip aired.
Perhaps we’ll learn more when Usher takes over the TODAY Plaza September 5. For now, details about his next album remain under wraps.
