Washington: Usher has revealed that he had been plotting a duet with Amy Winehouse in the weeks before her untimely death last summer.

“There was (sic) few a conversations that took place, but we never quite made it to it. I would have loved it,” Contactmusic quoted the singer as telling Mtv news.

“It could have been one of the most incredible records ever. A voice like that comes once in a lifetime,” he said.

“We talked and exchanged information and I invited her to a show and she didn``t come,” he said.
