In addition to returning to a coaching spot on The Voice and filming a new movie, Usher has announced plans to release new music in 2014.
"[You're] going to hear some new music at the top of the year," the singer told MTV News at the opening of his protégé Justin Bieber 's documentary Believe, which arrives in theaters Christmas Day.
Although the crooner remained mum on the details, he did reveal that he's "in the studio working right now" on the follow-up to 2012's Looking 4 Myself. Usher's friend and Bieber's manager Scooter Braun hinted, "I've heard Usher's music -- get ready."
Fans will also get to see Usher in the upcoming movie, Hands of Stone, in which he portrays boxer Sugar Ray Leonard . "You guys have probably been following me on Instagram so you see my Afro and my six-pack," he said. "So I'm getting out of Sugar Ray Leonard mode and into Usher Ray mode." The flick, which also stars Robert De Niro and Jurnee Smollett-Bell , hits theaters next year.
