Usher and DJ Zaytoven teamed up for their hot new album “A”!
“A” pays homage to Usher‘s love for Atlanta – and is the first album he’s released in two years since his Hard II Love album.
Just a few hours before dropping the album, Usher teased his new music by releasing a teaser on Instagram of him and Zaytoven driving around Atlanta – showcasing some familiar attractions including Cascade Family Skating roller rink and a Waffle House alongside stops at strip clubs.
“I don’t think that there’s any way to not sound like what I’ve created in the past, but that wasn’t the purpose,” the singer told The Fader. “We really were just making music and … There are tones that are always gonna sound similar and if it makes you feel that way then that’s a great thing because that was a very successful album.”
Usher also told The Fader that he originally intended to release the album later this month and that in the process of creating “A”, he “really was honest with the feelings,” and was “in the moment.”
“I was like, ‘Nah, let’s put [it] out over the weekend,’” he said. “They still up driving like crazy to make it happen, and thank God it has, but it feels urgent. I mean, I just feel the urgency and I feel the energy of this. That’s what I’m loving right now, man.”
