Just in time for the Billboard Music Awards 2012, a special edition of the magazine has been released. Of course, only the most worthy grace the cover and it's none other than Usher and his 18-year old music protégé, Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber and Usher are definitely at the "Top of Their Game" which is the cover tag of Billboard magazine's special issue. For Usher, however, this isn't the first time the 33-year old singer has graced the cover.
R&B superstar, posed in a one-two punch, graced the previous issue of Billboard Magazine. Usher is currently in the works with his next album, "Looking 4 Myself" and filming the biopic of Sugar Ray Leonard, "Hands of Stone". Despite the management changes in the R&B singer's career, Usher is moving forward and he's got his fans along for the ride.
"In life we have to grow," shares Usher.
"And one thing that's been beautiful is that I've been able to grow along with my mother and people of my past. They're proud of me as I move forward, and are able to acknowledge the work I've been doing and say, 'I like what you're doing, and I like that you've been able to pick it up and continue to move on.'" added the veteran musician.
Following in the footsteps of Usher is Bieber, who is also set to release his next album "Believe". While Justin may have literally stepped in the ring with a boxer last week, the 18-year old has his sights set on a different film involving another set of balls.
Alongside Mark Wahlberg, Justin has his film career in the works with a basketball movie. No word about what the plot would be like nor who else would be in the film starring alongside the Canadian crooner.
Given both superstars' career, it was only appropriate to have both awesome singers on the cover. Though fans would say otherwise, Justin Bieber deserves his own solo cover for Billboard magazine. That however might take a little bit longer.
