    Usher sings a couple of lines from 'Climax'.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCqxucWu ... ature=plcp

    He also talks about the record here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AG9C2CYh ... ature=plcp

    There are also 3 more parts to the interview if you go into the first youtube link and look at the videos that where uploaded by the user.

    Higlights include Usher mentioning he is going to star in a movie, and will play a character who is a 'icon of our time'.

    Who do you think this might be?

    Have a good feeling it is someone within Soul/R&B as apparently Usher didn't even have to audition. My gut feeling is someone like James Brown or Marvin Gaye.

      ^^Nope, its not Marvin and James.

      Usher to play boxer Sugar Ray Leonard

      Usher has confirmed that he’s set to play Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming boxing film called Hands Of Stone.

      Leonard, a world champion in five different weight divisions, finally retired from boxing in 1997 after a number of comebacks.

      The film is about legendary Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán.

      The R&B star said he was in training for the role in the film which he says will also star Robert De Niro and Gael García Bernal.

      “I’m in preparation for a very incredible role,” Usher said.

      “If you guys see me running around London that’s what it is.

      “If you see me in the corners boxing. I’m doing that while working on this album.”

      The singer confirmed he’ll start filming for the movie later in 2012.

      He also said De Niro is cast as legendary boxing trainer Ray Arcell – who coached 18 world champions including Durán.

      Usher, who has scored huge hits with tracks like Yeah!, admitted that he’s yet to meet Leonard in person.

      Usher has appeared on screen before, most recently in 2010 film Killers.

      Usher’s 2004 Confessions is currently the biggest selling album of the 21st century so far.
      I dont know, this icon of our time.

        Sugar Ray Leaonard is one of the best boxers of all time.

        Probably behind the one and only Sugay Ray Robinson....

        Am suprised he has got a boxing role... but if Will Smith and Hilary Swank could do it... then so can he..

            What a pointless post! "If you got nothing good to say, then don't say nothing". What makes you think he is 'in the closet'?

                                  That's What It's Made For is one of the best non-single tracks off of Confessions.

                                  But it has nothing on Bad Girl.

                                  I thinking I'm becoming an Usher stan.

                                      I haven't seen the live performance but...

                                      Bad Girl should've been a single. If you don't feel the urge to get up and move, then you have no pulse.

                                        "Throwback" and "Can U Help Me" are, without question, my face non-singles from Usher! Both are EPIC!
                                        I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                            TOO hard to name just one so I'll do one from each album...

                                            My Way: One Day You'll Be Mine
                                            8701: I Don't Know (ft. Diddy)
                                            Confessions: Simple Things

                                            I'm glad Bad Girl got a shoutout in the My Boo video with Alicia.

                                            Here I Stand: Before I Met You
                                            Raymond Vs Raymond: Pro Lover
                                            Versus: Lay You Down

                                            Maybe Simple Things is my ultimate favourite...

                                              should be interesting, although its described as a club banger... i hope the whole album isnt "club banger-ish"

                                                      I think "Bedtime" was considered as a single when the live version was released for the LIVE album. It remains one of his most underrated songs EVER!

                                                      I'd add "Bad Girl" and 90% of Confessions to the list, though "Throwback" has to be my absolute jam!

                                                      Imma cut a bitch!! :x

                                                      *just kidding*

                                                      But for real, Confessions a classic! Brilliant R&B album!
                                                      Several people on this site have said it! And looking at some of their faves (though that's not the best indicator) I tend to believe they consider it as filler because most of the album is smooth and not uptempo.

                                                      These people don't know what "filler" is and don't know the glory behind the ENTIRE album as one big masterpeice and classic R&B album.
                                                      I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

                                                        Yeah, like I'm trying to figure out if the definition of filler changed.

                                                        But whatever.

                                                        You guys like Bedtime? Meh...it's aight. Nothing special.

                                                            Do you think it's his best?

                                                              I don't know! It would be between "8701" and "Confessions" for me. Both are brilliant and definitely his best!
