Usher has attained nine Hot 100 #1 hits (all as a lead artist) and 18 Hot 100 top 10 singles. 2021 continues to be a busy year for Usher with new music and the launch of his first Las Vegas residency in July 2021.
Musically, Usher’s two latest singles “Don’t Waste My Time” and “Bad Habits” both hit #1 on the Billboard R&B Charts. Usher is currently in the studio recording his 9th studio album which will be released in late 2021.
