New Song: Usher – ‘More (Single Mix)’

Published: Sunday 14th Nov 2010 by Sam

As previously reported, Usher is set to release ‘More’ as the next single from his Platinum certified ‘Raymond vs Raymond’ LP.

Today saw the surfacing of the official ‘Single Mix’ of the song – which is markedly punchier than the original, courtesy of producer Red One.

Take a listen after the jump…

The figurative bells and whistles added to the song certainly certify it’s Electro Banger status. Although, it must be said that the track is strikingly similar to Red One’s work with his muse Lady GaGa. Indeed, this incarnation of ‘More’ sounds like ‘Bad Romance‘s not-so-distant cousin (the verses most especially). Whether this be a good or bad omen is down to interpretation.

In any case, the cut looks set to be another hit in waiting for the R&B crooner.

    I guess im excited but i wish traditional R&B was popular on the billboard 100 again 🙁

  2. DJ Yan Man November 14, 2010

    The original from Raymond vs Raymond sounded so much better :s why the need to change it to MORE euro dance pop when it was already touching on that genre. Really bad decision imo

  3. Reina November 14, 2010

    im not feelin this electro/techno Usher….NEXT!!

  4. sideeye November 14, 2010

  7. the kiddz November 14, 2010

    I don’t like this sound for Usher.

  8. Diane November 14, 2010

    I have Usher’s CD & there is no song titled, More. Where are all these new songs coming from. Damn. You buy a CD and then singles start falling out the sky. What is a consumer supposed to do?

  9. MUSIC LOVER November 14, 2010

    This made the song worse for me. I liked the original, but damn another club song as a single. F*** music of today–the same ass repetitive s***! If he wants old fans back, he will release “Foolin’ Around.”

  10. klemen November 14, 2010

    @diane..if u buy cd over itunes you get More as a bonus track

  11. Speechless November 14, 2010

    He’s such a sell-out

  12. QueenofPopJanet November 14, 2010

    Usher is a sad sellout, trying to chase that white/emo/gay Gaga demographic. This is embarrassing for him, that rather than be himself and continue making the urban R&B/pop he rose to fame with and is known for, he’d rather stoop to the level of snow queen Taio Cruz. Hell, I think even Jason Derulo’s poppy ass makes Blacker music than Usher does these days. What a waste. He looks desperate.

  13. Diane November 14, 2010

    @KLEMEN Thx. I bought the physical CD from Amazon.

  14. likeCAESAR November 14, 2010

    I think he makes a good balance between rnb and pop…whatever the case he’d be an idiot to only make socalled “black music” since black people don’t buy music. Hell half the black people I know in the hood don’t have computers or itunes or none of that s***….only the bootleg man at the barbershop.

  15. MUSIC LOVER November 14, 2010

    99% of all artists today have sold-out to this b******* sound, so don’t even start. Not that we can really blame them. This is the s*** that sells today. I can’t wait for this era to be over with so we can return to REAL music.

  16. rob November 14, 2010

    usher its aight!!!!!!!! i prefer the other version was blasting it on my ipod and wish u would release that version as a single further more I am still waiting for Guilty with TI AS A SINGLE AND THE VIDEO FOR HOT TOTTIE!!!! foolin around would be a good choice too!!!

  23. Keesha November 14, 2010

    @Lol I don’t like when any talented artist sells out. As much as I love Chris Brown, I really don’t like “Yeah 3x.” Same goes with Usher. I don’t like this dance pop music that he’s doing. It sucks. I like real music and dance pop, or techno or whatever it is isn’t it.

  24. Keesha November 14, 2010

    And @Lol, I find it sad that he’ll “flop” if he puts out good music, but he’ll sell if he puts out crap. It just shows how low the music industry has fallen. And it also shows how the consumers will settle for anything that is promoted by these record companies.

  25. Woooo! November 14, 2010

    Wooo i love this, USHER MAKE THAT MONEY BOY! – call him a sell out – hes making money – this is what is going to sell these days – BUT I AM WAITING FOR THIS ERA TO DIE OUT lol

  26. D.Strock November 14, 2010

    It just sounds too over-produced and unoriginal. Sorry Usher. Wish he would’ve stuck with the original, but whatever. It’ll probably get eaten up by the masses anyway

  27. love u! November 15, 2010

    O Please! u guyz should stop complaining.. Any Song Usher touches turns to Gold whether u like it or not. @LOL I agree with u. All this Chris Brown’s fans need to to shut the f**kup because Usher is going no where. if you don’t like the song, there is a mute button on your remote control, that’s what it’s made for. sheesh!

  28. Keesha November 15, 2010

    Oh, I’m sorry if I got under anyone’s skin for posting MY thoughts// sarcasm. Anyway, someone as talented as Usher should put out nothing less than the best, but he is not going to do that when people sit up here saying that everything he puts out, even crap, turns to gold (i.e. they give them money for that crap, continuing this cycle of crap). Of course it’s going to go gold idiots!
    And speaking on Chris Brown, since someone (or some people) feel that I should shut the f**k up (very classy by the way), that “Boing!” song was a piece of crap as well. I should have said that on the actual post for the song in the first place. I feel that Usher and Chris are extremely talented men, and just as I said with Usher, Chris should not put anything out that is less than the best, even if it is for a mixtape. I had seen that Chris tweeted about how many “artists” are settling for mediocrity these days and then not even three days later, he posted that crap. And you know why he did that? Many other Chris Brown fans eat it up. I don’t, but I made a point to say that I wouldn’t have gotten the song “Boing!” if it wasn’t free, and I was telling the absolute truth. If that is what I have to do to show that I don’t support crap, then I will do it. If you idiots want to continue to buy this crap with your money then do it, but don’t tell me the shut the f**k up because I choose to support real music with my money. End of discussion.

  29. True Diva November 15, 2010

    I thought I’d never see this day Usher would cross over to Pop! It just doesn’t seem him to me…. it seem forced… what about your fans that supported u from the jump when mainstream didn’t know u??? What about your fans that was there from the beginning of your career? Man….. that is so messed up! I guess we have another “black” artist selling there souls to stay relevant in this industry! I guess u gotta do what u gotta do tho. Not feelin the record whatsoever! & Usher has totally lost his sexiness foreal… what happened? His good looks r fading….

  30. Diane November 15, 2010

    I don’t mean to sound ignorant, but what is real music?

    @DIANE “real music” are just words that haters use as an excuse to their statements…
    For real guys, music is an art form, you don’t have to like everything geez…

  33. VA STAND UP!! November 15, 2010

    @Keesha: Co-sign!

    @Drastic; I agree! I wish he had given us a video for ‘Hot Tottie’ too and ‘I’m Guilty’ was my ish! *sigh* Oh well.

    Well the original was just ok to me, and this is no better. He just changed it to this annoying ass beat to appeal to the masses. Blah! Usher will always be that smooth R&b dude to me, I don’t like this side of him at all. I miss the “U Make Me Wanna’ Usher, the ‘Nice and Slow’ Usher, the ‘My Way’ Usher, ‘U Got It Bad’ Usher, the ‘Yeah’ Usher, the ‘Confessions’ Usher. To me, that is when he is at his best. When I hear him do this ish it’s like he is trying to compete with all the younger acts out. It just doesn’t suit him to me, it’ seems forced. As a veteran in the game he shouldn’t be following trends.

    Yes Usher has always been mainstream, but he gained mainstream attention through R&b music, not pop! ‘My Way’ and ‘8701’ and ‘Confessions’ were all r&b albums. I honestly can’t remember any pop songs from those albums, except maybe ‘Caught Up’ from ‘Confessions’. Other than that, when has Usher done pop??

    ‘Here I Stand’ was his only album to perform poorly, and that’s because it was a boring ass album. How do you go from ‘Confessions’ to that??

    I honestly feel like Usher is just doing this type of music because it’s hot right now. I don’t blame him and I am not gonna say he ‘sold out’, per se, because ‘Raymond v. Raymond’ has more r&b on it than pop, but he has never done this techno sound before. He still has given us r&b with “There Goes My Baby’ and ‘Papers’ but he has released a lot more pop/techno than r&b records and I think that’s because with the failure of his last album, he wanted to capture mainstream attention again.

    Like I said, I am not gonna say he sold out’ or that I blame him, but I think it is obvious that he doing what he has to do to sell, and I personally DO NOT like this sound from him at all! Usher is the King or R&b, not Pop! IMHO.

  34. Asa November 15, 2010

    Not really feeling that this is should be the next single. I really thought he should of made fooling around, okay, or making love one of the next single. Tired of all this pop s***, want some traditional rnb.

  35. Mafalo November 15, 2010

    Let’s be real here:
    The R&B that Usher is famous for has virtually no mainstream ‘place’ right now. All of the RvR R&B singles (Papers, There Goes My Baby, Daddy’s Home) and Hot Tottie from Versus have performed only modestly on the Hot 100. None of them went top 20. Without this dance/electropop s*** that he’s done (OMG, DJ) lately, he wouldn’t have had any top 10s. He HAS to do pop if he’s gonna at all compete. The climate is not there for “U Got It Bad” these days.

  36. VA STAND UP!! November 15, 2010

    @Lol: You seem to be very angry! That’s what I have noticed about people who use all caps. It’s like you try to scream at people behind the computer screen. Perhaps you should calm down.

    Yes I am a CB fan, die hard, but I don’t like every he does, and if I don’t like it, I say, ‘I don’t like it!” I don’t sugar coat it and I don’t act like everything he does is epic because it’s not!
    I hated that ‘Boing’ song he released the other day and I said I hated it! The song he released before that I thought was just Ok as well.

    There have been many songs by CB that I wasn’t feeling at first that had to grow on me. I couldn’t stand “Kiss, Kiss’ at first or even ‘Run It’. ‘Forever’ really had to grow on me, but now one of my favorite songs by him. He actually turned me on to pop/techno because I never listened to it before. ‘Yeah 3x’ still hasn’t fully grown on me yet, but as a fan I support whatever direction he goes in even if I don’t love it.

    Besides, ‘Forever’, ‘Geronimo’ and maybe a few other of his pop songs, I still perfer the r&b side of CB as well. I like the ‘Glow In the Dark’ CB, the ‘Deuces’ CB, the Poppin’ CB. I really liked his mixtapes as well, to me that is when he really shines. I actually think a lot of his unreleased material is his better than most of the stuff he released.

    I just happen to feel that CB does pop better than Usher, CB has a much higher voice than Usher so I think his voice is better suited for pop than Usher. Not to mention CB goes a lot harder than Usher in the dancing department, which is why I like to see him doing dance records. Plus CB has writtern all of his pop songs and he did this sound two years ago before the current trend.

    Besides myself and Keesha, there are no CB stans in here, Just people giving their opinions! Don’t come at the CB stans because they are not the only ones saying the song sucks! So you can take your own advice and

    #SIT!

  37. Keesha November 15, 2010

    Actually, “haters” is a term that idiots use because they don’t know what real music is, or they don’t care to know what real music is. I know it’s a shame, but such is life.

  38. Speechless November 15, 2010

    And his age is really starting to show. You can tell he’s desperate. Just think back to his VMA performance when he was all tired and out of breath.

  39. royalkev November 15, 2010

    I like this song (the way it sounds on the album). Now it sounds like a video game!

  40. Spunkypoop November 15, 2010

    Usher is making that money!!! He ain’t stupid. Go get e
    Tiger!

  41. UsherRocks November 15, 2010

    To all of the narrow minded ignorant people out there Usher is a Superstar, he’s not going to be put in a box of doing just r&b records and not catering to his other fans. Raymond vs Raymond is straight up r&b with the exception of OMG, He’s already drop Papers no.1 on R&B charts, Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home) no.2 on R&B charts, There Goes My Baby no. 1 on R&B charts, Lil Freak no. 8 on R&B charts, Hot Tottie no. 9 on R&B charts, OMG no. 3 on R&B charts. Every single he has release from this album was in the top 40 on the billboard charts including the no 1 smash OMG and the no.2 smash DJ Got Us Falling In Love which is currently no. 4 on the Hot 100.

  42. UsherRocks November 15, 2010

    So how can you be a sell out when you drop 6 top 10 R&B singles and all 7 of your singles are all billboard hot 100 top 40 records. Men lie women lie numbers don’t

  43. ImmaStar November 15, 2010

    @UsherRocks definitely cosigning what said always been a Usher fan and still go hard with Usher. So how can you be a sell out when you drop 6 top 10 R&B singles and all 7 of your singles are all billboard hot 100 top 40 records. Men lie women lie numbers don’t

  44. Malyeh November 15, 2010

    The original was way better

  45. WorldWideWaddie.com November 15, 2010

    THIS IS PURE GARBAGE. HOW SAD IS IT THAT OF ALL PEOPLE, USHER SELLS OUT R&B FOR TECHNO? HE LOST HIS HARDCORE FANBASE WITH THIS BULLISH.

  46. Julia February 8, 2011

  47. Kon July 10, 2011
