After the announcement that Usher is set to release something called Versus, which is being marketed as an extension of his new album, Raymond V. Raymond, a new video has been premiered from Raymond V Raymond. The video for “There Goes My Baby” was directed by Anthony Mandler ; Check it out below!!!!!
Usher’s new single ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ has finally leaked in its entirely. The track is the lead single from his new project ‘Versus’ which will drop in stores on August 24th.
The Max Martin-produced, Pitbull-assisted song sounds exactly how I expected it to sound. Dance-pop song with a heavily synthesised beat and horribly auto-tuned vocals (Usher seeems to love auto tune at the moment). What im wondering though is recently Usher strongly criticized Jay Sean and Taio Cruz for bringing down the value of R&B music ; “How is Usher going to condemn Taio Cruz for bringing down R&B and his next single sounds just like a Taio Cruz song?” Thats just so damn true.
I can see this song being another smash for him because this is what is selling at the moment. No wonder horrible autotuned pop songs like ‘The Club Is Alive’ and ‘OMG’ get to number one, because music fans are not questioning it , they just love regardless of what it sounds like. If people buy garbage, why do artists need to put in the effort of recording decent music with substance???
The song is catchy i must admit. BUT but but this is not classic Usher!
Take a listen to the song below:!
Usher had a busy couple of days in the UK.. After performing “OMG” on the live finals of Britains Got Talent , the next day he opened London’s Summertime Ball show , where he performed past and present hits. He wowed the crowd with his impressive set and it also featured performances from Justin Bieber and Will.i.am also.
Usher though as soon as he finished his set had to dash straight to the airport as he jumped onto a waiting private jet to head to NY to perform at the Hot 97 Summerjam event. Here is his performance of his “OMG” song below!

The live Britain’s Got Talent finals kicked off Monday night at 7:30pm with the first live semi-final. It was a very impressive start with singers like Olivia Archbold and Josh Barry flying the flag for the singing category. Olivia narrowly missed out on the final after acts Tobias Mead and Spellbound(who were both amazing by the way) were put through ahead of her. Bring on the rest of the live semi finals i say! :)
Theres also rumours that Miley Cyrus will be performing on the live Semi Final shows this week.
