"My Way" is a 1998 single from Usher's 1997 album of the same name. 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 song features in the Refrain part of the lyrics and the music of the song by Lil' Troy "Wanna Be a Baller" from his debut album "Sittin' Fat Down South" published officially one month before Usher's song. The music video was filmed and released in 1998 at a broken down garage with a dance competition.
