Usher Sings in Chinese at Beijing Concert
Usher translated his super stardom into a foreign language opting to perform in Chinese during his concert at Beijing's Wukesong Arena on Sunday. The Grammy winner took the stage alongside Asian pop star Leehom Wang to sing one of his songs. "I wanted to make a great impression, so I wanted to do something very special," Usher said of the performance.
"After hearing (Wang's) music, I wanted to collaborate with him." The two were also to sing Usher's current mega-hit 'OMG,' which is currently sitting at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts. This latest concert marks the first big act to perform in the country this year. Usher has been riding high off the success of his latest 'Raymond V. Raymond,' album which spawned hits like 'OMG,' featuring Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am, and 'Little Freak,' featuring hip-hop's it girl, Nicki Minaj.
As previously reported Usher is prepping a follow-up EP 'Versus,' which will feature eight new tracks. The tracks will also appear on the deluxe edition of 'Raymond V. Raymond' which features both songs from the original album as well as 'Versus.'
