LISTEN to Usher on iHeartRadio

He may be the newbie on NBC’s “The Voice” but Usher is making his presence known. In this exclusive video from the new season, Christina Milian sits down with the new coach to talk about his team-building strategy. Like Green and Christina Aguilera before him, the longtime performer seems ready to fight for the best talent.

“I’m extremely competitive, so they picked the right guy,” he says with a laugh. Not only will Usher will take on fellow coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and newcomer Shakira, but he also plans on cracking the whip when it comes to his team of singers. “It’s not gonna be easy, but it will be worthwhile. And if you really do want a career that will last, then you’re willing to take the time to learn,” he says.
