Yeah! Usher is bringing his music to TV.

The chart-topping singer is developing and will executive produce a new series with UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.

The series will “explore music, style, sex, romance and secrets that threaten to tear relationships apart,” according to the official description.

Set in Atlanta, the untitled drama is inspired by Usher’s music and will center on “Black love in Atlanta and individuals looking to find a place to call home.”

“My 30-year catalog has resonated with so many people no matter where they were in their lives,” Usher said in a statement to Variety. “I’m happy to be working with UCP to bring the music to life. I hope the series resonates with you the way my music continues to.”

Usher has a wide catalog of slick dance tracks and ballads to incorporate into the series, including his hits “My Way,” “My Boo,” “Caught Up,” and “Yeah!”

It’s unclear if the eight-time Grammy winner will step in front of the camera for the TV series.

He’s no stranger to acting, after appearing on the TV shows The Bold and the Beautiful, Cousin Skeeter, Moesha, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and the films Scary Movie V (2013), Hustlers (2019), and Bad Hair (2020).

News of Usher’s new TV project comes just days after he lit up the stage in the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII halftime show in Las Vegas.

The performance featured music from three decades of his career and followed his two-year “My Way: The Las Vegas Residency.”

Usher is busy and booked. He’ll launch a 24-city “Past Present Future” tour this August in Washington, DC. The national tour includes stops in Atlanta, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. He also released his ninth album titled Coming Home earlier this month.
