Usher was in East London yesterday taking part in a Q&A session at Newham College. Among the topics local teenagers questioned the chart topping R&B star on was his relationship with P Diddy. The question made reference to rumours Usher wasn’t on good terms with the hip hop mogul because he shunned him in the early stages of his career.
Usher: “Actually he was very forthcoming – he actually executively produced my first album. I really didn’t know which direction to go in as an artist – I signed to a record label at the age of thirteen and Puff did my first album. It wasn’t my most successful album – later on we worked on songs that were more successful as individual artists. If anything he gave me a great introduction in showing me all the benefits of his success at the time.”
