Actress Priyanka Chopra is definitely the 'new royal' in the United States of America. After having featured in singles with artistes like Chainsmokers and N.A.S.A, the actress is now set to be a part of Usher's new album, Hard II Love. Chopra's voice will be a part of the single, 'Need U' (Conversations with Priyanka Chopra).

Hard II Love is the eighth studio album by Usher, and features several guest vocalists like Young Thug, Ruben Blades and Future alongside Chopra. The actress tweeted a link about the album on her social media site. While she won't be singing in 'Need U', the single features short conversations with Chopra set to the score by the composer. 

The album is expected to release on 16 September, via RCA Records. Some of the tracks of the album have already been released as teasers, but are only available to users in the US, via the Tidal app.

Chopra had shared stage with Usher at the UN Global Citizen's Festival in July. The actress has become one of the most prominent exports from India with her hit television series, Quantico, as well as her soon-to-release film, Baywatch. The growing popularity of the actress, and her presence on social media, led to the W magazine marking her as one of the 'New Royals', alongside actresses Elle Fanning, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jodie Foster, Halle Berry, and Irina Shayk by W magazine.

Meanwhile, the actress continues to shoot for the new season of her television series, Quantico. She is also awaiting the release of her next film overseas, Baywatch, alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
