Usher has confirmed that Drake will feature on his new album UR as well Nicki Minaj and other stars. 

The 35-year-old hitmaker is currently working on his eighth studio album and details of the forthcoming release are slowing coming to light. 

Nicki Minaj is set to feature on a track and she won’t be the only star from Lil Wayne's Young Money label to appear on the album, as Usher has confirmed he has collaborated with Drake.

Speaking to MTV News about his collaboration with Drake, Usher said: ''He's extremely talented, man. He's nice. 

Usher added: "Money really knows what he's doing. He really understands how to analyse a beat and then recognise a cadence. Because hip-hop is that way; it's not just words and a rhythm.

''You gotta understand the cadence of what the song is saying, so that when you're on it, you know how to get it.''
