Usher said that Tevin Campbell’s “Can We Talk” originally belonged to him. During an interview with Ebony, Usher confessed,
“…when I first signed to LaFace Records, I wanted to do an album with Babyface and LA Reid, right? I signed specifically for that reason. So LA Reid wanted Babyface to work on me and they were going through, you know, a lot of drama at the time. They were kinda severing their ties…he got mad…And he built an entire album for me, and he gave the whole album to somebody else…Tevin Campbell! ‘Can We Talk’…was my song…”
WOW!! That’s a cool little fun fact, Usher!
