Usher is back with brand new music!
Thanks to streaming, musicians no longer need to rely on months of marketing and planning distribution to release a new collection of songs for his 50th birthday.
More and more artists are releasing projects with little to no rollout. Drake has done it, Kanye West has done it and now Usher has done it.
The “DJ Got Us Fallin in Love” singer revealed plans to drop a new album called A at midnight on Thursday – and he’s made good on that promise.
The eight-track project is a collaboration with producer Zaytovan and features rappers Future and Gunna. The title, A, is a tribute to the city of Atlanta, where Usher began his music career.
Usher, 39, has released eight previous albums, between 1994 and 2016.
