"My Way" is a 1998 single from Usher's 1997 album as the title track. It features an uncredited rap and background vocals from Jermaine Dupri. Despite moderate airplay, the single sold well and reached #2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Its rise to #1, however, was halted due to the success of the mega-hit "The Boy Is Mine" by Brandy and Monica, during its 13 week run atop the summit. Due to the disappointment of the "Nice and Slow" single in the U.K., "My Way" was not released as a single there. The songs features in the Refrain part of the lyrics and the music of the song by Lil' Troy "Wanna be a Baller" published officially one month before Usher's song.
