Usher Signs Management Agreement With Scooter Braun

Published: Sunday 12th Jun 2016 by David

He played a crucial part in developing the Pop force that is Justin Bieber.

Now, as he seeks way to ensure his brand and legacy receives the respect it is due, Usher has given Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun managerial control of his career.

Full story below…

Braun recently welcomedThe Life of Pablo‘ painter Kanye West to his camp following the rapper’s silent but telling departure from Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation and now watches his empire expand following Usher’s arrival shortly after.

His first job as the triple threat’s manager is to steer his new album ‘Flawed’ to impressive commercial territory using its promotional cuts ‘Crash’ and ‘No Limit’ to assist him as he does so with the help of Sony Music Entertainment, the label at which the singer is housed.

    Man, Scooter really came up.

    • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? June 12, 2016

      90% of his clients are flops and one hit wonders. Justin Bieber is the only successful one he has managed.

  2. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? June 12, 2016

    Yes! “OMG!” (Y’all see what I did there? ?) Usher is DEFINITELY gonna be EVERYWHERE this era just like Ariana was for her second album era. Is it safe to say that “Confessions” 2.0 is on the way?

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 12, 2016

      There will NOT be another Confessions, stop it. You’re just setting yourself up for failure.

      • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? June 12, 2016

        Okay. You got me! Maybe I’m reaching, sis, but I do believe that he still has enough power in his name to get a double platinum album. His not done yet.

    • Sam June 12, 2016

      You’re reaching. Confessions was a good album from start to finish, so even going by these two singles there will be no confessions double platinum or not

    • #JACKIE June 12, 2016

      Kiiii the delusion

      • ? June 12, 2016

        Why y’all so damn negative Confession or No Confession. His promo is bout to be ????????

  3. ka June 12, 2016

    I guess Usher found out doing and marrying your manager isn’t productive no longer.The child support bills are pilling up and Confessions CD and the voice pay are fading.confessions was a sure long term hight singles alone still get played$$$

    • Coolness June 12, 2016

      Lmao, I think Usher’s good. I ain’t gon’ count his money.

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 12, 2016

      He need to go back to his MOM! Say what you want, but Usher and Beyonce’s parents had their careers on POINT!

  4. ka June 12, 2016

    sorry mean hit

  5. Gee June 12, 2016

    This might be what the doctor ordered because the team behind you is just as equally important as the artists and their product hopefully Usher has all his ducks lined in a row. Good luck Usher.

  6. Gee June 12, 2016

    I have to say Usher’s mom, Brandy’s mom, and Beyoncé’s dad were great managers for their children’s careers.

    • LmfaoHoe June 12, 2016

      Yes and I believe strongly they all studied from Joe Jackson when it comes to the Jackson 5.

    • What Now June 13, 2016

    I remember one of ushers first performances when he first hit 30. He looked terrible, i was like man what is he doing, he was trying so hard and all out of breathe. I was rooting for him with good kisser & lemme see. His voice bores me tho (even moreso than chris) and he cant shake off the fact that hes in his late 30s. He already looked 29/30 in the confessions era. Guess kids & mariage age you. Bey is lucky to be so busy, keep jayz & Blue azzes at home and make that $$$$$

    • Sisqo is King June 12, 2016

      Of course his voice bores you.He can’t give us anything other than that tired falsetto.He has a marketable tone.But not as bad a CB.CB’s tone is awful and those screams are atrocious.

      • Bro June 12, 2016

        Even at 36 Usher is the best male performer LIVE. And you retarted Sisqo Stan keep Usher & Chris name out of your mouth. Atleast they are still big I wouldn’t say the same about your fave since 2001. Especially when Usher Ended it with 8701

    • ? June 12, 2016

      Man the two of y’all always got something negative to say. Usher is making moves and on top of that Sisqo can’t even be managed by your local drug dealer.

    • Rosicky June 17, 2016

      Ur reaching. The irony. Usher hasn’t aged a freaking day. Seriously, he looked like he was 12 in “Good Kisser”. Usher’s performances are top quality on The Voice when he performed “Twisted”.

  8. #JACKIE June 12, 2016

    Usher is played out.

    • Navy Captain June 12, 2016

      Ciara is played out

      • #JACKIE June 12, 2016


      • Navy Captain June 12, 2016

        That’s what the GP said to her last three albums too.

      • King Mark111 /.\ June 12, 2016

        4* Last 4 albums.

      • Navy Captain June 12, 2016

        You right you right. ?

    • missmeka1987 June 12, 2016

      You saying that but word on the street is that Scooter is managing Ciara also and will announce it soon lol

      • #JACKIE June 12, 2016

        But what does that have to do with my original statement?

    • Bro June 12, 2016

      He more bigger and relevant than your fave. Please don’t go there

  9. Team beauty June 12, 2016

    I like ushers old songs he should do songs like caught up,yeah,omg, burn, my boo, confessions I don’t like his new songs it just seems his trying to hard

  10. FC/JC June 12, 2016

    Scooter is also Ciara’s new manager……

  11. Bro June 12, 2016

    Usher is about to perform/appear on every award show,festival,talk show etc. He wants to keep his crown

  12. The Kpop Guy, Matt~ June 12, 2016

    Scooter is Also CL’s manager…
    …and now I see why Ariana Grande Left him.
    He only cares about biebs.

  13. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timelyyou June 12, 2016

    Good for usher and he will be everywhere

  14. s.a June 13, 2016

    when usher’s debut album USHER came he was managed by puffy that flopped. Then came his mother jonetta patton who gave him My Way, 8701, Confessions and even Raymond vs Raymond all these r solid and classic albums that USHER will be known for throughtout life. In an article it was clearly mentioned that it was Jonetta Patton who asked Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis to produce songs on 8701 and what the world got was U Remind Me song of the summer and it was Jonetta patton who wanted Jermaine Dupri to be part of Usher career. I say Usher is the most foolish and ignorant artist i have ever seen. He is ruining his career by his own hands. Only his mother can bring him to #1 thats it nobody else.

    • Bro June 13, 2016

      First of all that’s his mom he can’t hide behind his mom forever second of all Scooter Braun is a promo GOD he knows how to market big artist like Usher,Justin Bieber,Ariana Grande. He’s about to be everywhere. Now it’s a f****** GARAUNTEE that Usher WILL perform at every award show/huge televised event and he’s bout to recieve the best promo ever. Trust me Usher going to Scooter Braun is the best decision he made in years. So if anybody is foolish and ignorant its you

      • s.a June 14, 2016

        usher is foolish and ignorant no doubt its been a decade since he is been playing with his career thats why he hasnt got the respect he deserves.. plus my way to confessions all big albums were released under jpat management. confessions still holds the record for being the last biggest selling album by any male artist. Usher always said that if his mom wasnt there he would be nowhere now if u know that then isnt he foolish enough??

      • s.a June 14, 2016

        usher fired jpat just bcoz tameka foster didnt liked her and wanted control over usher now when Here i Stand flopped he brought her back as manger then again fired her after RvR coz then grace miguel wanted to manage usher. lol usher is a puppet of ladies hands

    • Truth June 13, 2016

      Usher was never managed by Puffy. Puff was hot at the time, and was recruited to be an executive producer for his debut album, but even then he was being managed by his mother.

    • Justafan June 13, 2016

      Serve us that hot tea!

  15. Truth June 13, 2016

    Desperate move. No artist (especially one that’s big) should be managed by a company that has other notable clients. When you’re at a certain status level, your manager should be someone who either manages you only…or you should be the biggest name on their client list so that you’re their top priority. You want them to be able to devote almost ALL of their time and effort to YOU. Usher sharing representation with Bieber and Grande is only going to compromise him.

    • #GRASSAINTGREENER June 13, 2016

      No not really Scooter is not managing Ariana anymore. The reason they’re bringing her up is because at the time he was managing her the promo was excellent for her second album even though Justin is on the label. Besides that Usher has a great relationship with Scooter and if anybody knows how to make a artist have a good comeback it’s Scooter (Ask Justin). Ariana is gone and Justin’s on tour. Usher is a big artist so of course Scooter is gonna make Usher a huge priority and on top of that if rumors are true about Ciara having the same manager as Usher and Justin Bieber it’s over for her because she’s definitely not gonna be managed properly cause they’re gonna OVERSHADOW the hell out of her

  16. s.a June 13, 2016

    usher was introduced to l.a reid by bryan reid just like scooter did for j.b but at that time usher’s mother wasn’t his manager his career was solely in the hands of L.A reid & puffy. It was l.a reid who sent usher to ‘flavour camp’ of puffy. Jpat became usher’s manager when Usher’s debut album failed and laface records denied to back usher.Go do some research no mother would let her 12 yr old kid sing s** songs

  17. s.a June 13, 2016

    that grape juice how u got this news? its still not on the internet :p but anyways keep it up
