Usher Steppin' in Chicago

UsherIf you didn't get enough R&B superstar stalking in with R. Kelly's appearance on the Chicago River, then you'll soon have your chance with Usher. The singer is in talks to star in and executive produce a movie called "Step In the Name of Love". The movie has been billed as the "urban Saturday Night Fever" and is a period piece about the Step dancing movement—a Chicago derivative of swing dancing. Uh.. The Urban Saturday Night Fever? Sounds like a winner.

Chicagoist has been a fan of Usher's since way back when the sexy sexy Nice & Slow came out. Also, we giggle every time we hear the way Lil' Jon says "okay!" in the Usher song Yeah. And Usher... how could we ever resist those eyes and those abs! Let the stalking begin!

Thanks to Ryan for tipping us off!
