Usher is getting closer to dropping his long-awaited new album, “Flawed.” Hot on the heels of the release of his single “No Limit” featuring Young Thug, Usher says he’s ready to drop his eighth studio album.

HipHollywood caught up with the singer-turned-actor while promoting his role in the Roberto Durán biopic Hands of Stone, where he told us the album is slated to release around the same time as the film.

“The music is coming soon,” Usher said cautiously. “I’m working on a release date very soon, if not flanking the release of the film.”

“Flawed” is the followup to 2012’s “Looking 4 Myself,” which Usher has spent the past three years teasing. Back in June, he announced the album title, embarked on his “UR Experience Tour” and also released the track “Crash” on Tidal.

Jermaine Dupri, who produced Usher’s mega-hit album “8701” is said to be working on the new project. Usher didn’t give us many more details about “Flawed,” but did discuss the song “Champions,” which he co-wrote for the film with Ruben Blades, Taura Stinson and Raphael Saadiq. Check out the lyric video below. Hands of Stone hits theaters August 26th.
