Usher impressed with Bieber

London: R&B singer Usher is impressed with Justin Bieber and says the teenage singer is "more talented musician" than he was at that age.

"You haven`t seen the best of him. He is a pop craze like `The Beatles`. They started out as pure pop artists and look what they became over the years," quoted him as saying.

Usher met the Canadian singer in 2008 and insists he`s not surprised Bieber is now topping the charts and he`s convinced the 16-year-old is set to grow in popularity.

"Justin reminds me of myself at that age, only he`s a much more talented musician than I was. He taught himself piano and guitar. I couldn`t, so he has that advantage. This isn`t about his age and we`re never going to appease a crowd. His audience will grow with him. I started out when I was a teenager. Now, 45 million albums later...," he said.

Bieber`s debut single, "One Time", was released worldwide during 2009 and was on the list of top 30s in over 10 countries.
