Soul star Jill Scott will join Usher as a mentor on the upcoming season of TV talent show “The Voice.”

The “He Loves Me” singer will help Usher coach his team of hopefuls during season six of the hit series.

The “Yeah!” hitmaker, who rejoins the judging panel with Shakira, admits he’s thrilled to land such a talent.

He tells “Extra,” “That’s my secret weapon. Incredible, as a writer, as a musician, as an actress; all those elements really help to prepare artists.”

And Scott didn’t hesitate to sign up for the show, adding, “When Usher calls, you take the call.”

The new season of The Voice begins on Feb. 24.
