Usher’s surprise album is definitely produced by Zaytoven

Pleasantly surprised by a new Usher album on #NewMusicFriday… and the headline is inspired by literally every track starting off with the Zaytoven tag. Haha. Just start each track and the volume gets slightly louder by the end. After all, the album is technically “Usher & Zaytoven”.

That observation aside: I was hopeful for some instant classic Usher to match some of his singles post-Confessions era (let alone anything approaching Confessions or 8701) but that hope went quickly to naught.

Sadly, the only joint that really stood out was “You Decide” (below) with the overall sound of the album matching the underwhelming, OFF-White knockoff cover. I’ll give it some spins over the weekend to see what grows on me though, but even more than that, I’ll just spin back those classics.
