Usher has urged people to stop buying Adele's hit album 21, as he doesn't want the singer to break his own record.
The 33-year old currently holds the record for having the best-selling album of the 2000's with his 2004 LP Confessions, with Adele now closing in on his achievement with her sophomore album.
Speaking to Capital FM, Usher has revealed he's keen to hold on to his ten year record, joking that he hopes people will soon stop purchasing Adele's 21.
He told Breakfast Show hosts Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon: "If I have to confess, I have to confess that I have told a few people not to go and buy Adele's album because I don't want her to go and break my record,
"No actually, I love her. Unfortunately, she's the closest to breaking my record for the last ten years. So now guys, don't go and buy that album right now."
In the same interview, Usher also revealed that he's teamed up with UK super-producer Labrinth on a track for his new album.
