BEIJING (AP) - Usher will sing in Chinese, briefly, during his China debut concert Sunday in Beijing.

Usher will sing one of Asian pop sensation Wang Lihong’s songs in Chinese, Wang told a joint press conference Saturday night, and the two will also sing Usher’s No. 1 “OMG.”

“I wanted to make a great impression, so I wanted to do something very special,” Usher said. “After hearing (Wang’s) music, I wanted to collaborate with him.”

The American recording artist said he came to China because he knows there’s an audience for him. He arrived in Beijing from Manila.

He said he found while audiences in the United States sing along as loud as they can, a crowd in Asia can be more quiet out of respect for the singer.

Usher’s is the first big foreign concert tour to perform in China this year.

Next month, he is releasing eight new songs on a new disc, “Versus.” The songs will also be released on a special deluxe version of “Raymond V. Raymond,” which was released in March.
