It would appear that @UsherRaymondIV's new album Looking 4 Myself may have sprung a leak on the internet the past 24 hours. Seeing that the album is scheduled to hit iTunes next Wednesday, it probably won't make too much of a difference in the final tally. The late timing of the leak combined with the absolute treasure trove of single possibilities make Usher's new album extremely intriguing.
What is a treasure trove you ask? In terms of an album it's 2 tracks produced by Danja, 2 by @swedishousemfia, 2 @Iamjimjonsin tracks, to go with an @iamwill, Neptunes, @ovo40 and @diplo joints. Yea, I'd say that Usher may have outdone himself and far exceeded expectations on first look. I'm pumped too that he's coming through with his promise to dabble into the world of EDM. Below is the first of two Swedish House Mafia produced tracks on the new album that manage to combine R&B and EDM flawlessly. Generally speaking, EDM is ruled by a lot of great producers who employ random, mostly unheard of women with great voices to sing catchy hooks. Usher is one of the rare male vocalists who can shine in the same way on uptempo electronic beats.
This is probably going to be the first of many tracks I'm going to post on Usher's new effort. I know I've already posted the first three singles on the album, but they might not end up being in the top 5 tracks on the album when the dust settleds.Needless to say, if you forgot that it was coming, you might want to give the 30 second snippets of Looking 4 Myself a quick listen so you can be on the same page...#DontMissOut
