A few weeks ago Usher teased his song “Twisted“ ft Pharell and I thought the snippet was fiya. This song comes straight from the album Looking 4 Myself It has a great pop/ soul sensibility of the old school. He really sings the hell out of this song. His vocals are a cross between Cee Lo and Bruno Mars. He shows new dimensions to his voice by skillfully showing off its rich timber. Pharell spits a few bars that were cool, but I wished his verse was longer.
Usher has released 30 second snippets from his new album Looking 4 Myself. This LP is slated to drop JUne 8, which is right around the corner. Usher has managed to top the charts, depsite all the controversy surrounding his divorce.
His album has a very urban flavor to it because I know many of his fans feared that he was going to go too pop for their taste, in pursuit of following trends.
Usher teased a new song from his upcoming album “Looking 4 Myself.” This joint was produced by Pharrell and is a funky soulful pop record. The song is very Chubby Checkers meets the Neptunes and Cee Lo Green. This song is very different from anything Usher has done and will be a game changer when it is officially released. He uses his instrument in creative ways on this track. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the song.
