Usher Lines Up 3rd Single

Published: Tuesday 22nd Jul 2008 by Sam
Usher Lines Up 3rd Single R&B star Usher is lining up ‘His Mistakes’ as the third single to be lifted from his most recent album ‘Here I Stand’. The song will be serviced to radio on August 18th.
Err is it me or does this seem like an ‘iffy’ choice? I mean Usher is in desperate need of a hit at the moment, considering ‘Moving Mountains’ has pretty much stalled on both sides of the Atlantic. IMO ‘Trading Places’ would have been the much better option. Perhaps putting out a better album, in general, would have helped matters?…Just a thought

Your thoughts?

    single choice is terrible. “best thing” would have been the best selection if anything.

    i’m still trying to figure out why he didn’t give “lifetime” the single treatment if he wanted a slow cut as the second single.

    I think its a good single choice, but not just yet… Think usher needs to put out something that people can dance to.

    I think the 3rd single should DEFINATELY be “What’s a man to do” everyone whos hears that song likes it instantly.

    “His mistakes” shud also get the single treatment, but he shud drop that one for the Autumn/fall when it starts getting a bit colder.

    Well that is just weird, why would he choose that song ??

    His best pick would really be Best Thing (has that My boo vibe) or What’s a man to do(even though it’s not that original because it sounds like alll the irreplaceble songs)

    I even think Whats your name would be a great single too, play that song in the club or in the car and you’ll really feel it

    Ugh I mean the song is coo and all but I wouldnt put it out as a single tho I dont think its Strong enough

    If I was him I would just put Love in this club part 2 out i mean u really cant go wrong with beyonce and lil wayne on a track

    and if he was going to put i song out like this hell he could habe just went with what’s a man to do

    I think the single choice is great! ‘His Mistakes’ from day 1 was a winner in my eyes. It has the appeal to be successful on all fronts. The hook is catchy, the melodies are captivating, etc. I think this will be a major hit for him. But only time will tell.

    Trading Places wouldve been a Great second single, and but now its needed as a third single…Usher went all wrong with this album..He shouldve stuck with his mother as his manager…he just damaged his name…It looks like Justin won the battle…The Best Thing featuring Jay shouldve got the single treatment..I still thought he shouldve shot a video for Love In the CLub Pt 2 with Beyonce and Weezy, like someone said you cant go wrong with those two…His Mistake is a good single, but thats to close off your album in my view..its two early for that type of single..

    trading places is the best song on the album,and it sounds like his old music.it would bring back his old fans.but his mistake like the song says

    whatever, this album’s already dead, take a hike for a few years then record a better cd

  9. BUTLER_84 July 22, 2008

    USHER ALBUM WAS VERY DISSAPOINTING
    I THINK THIS IS A GOOD CHOICE
    NOT THE BEST CHOICE THO, I THINK HE SHOULD’VE RELEASED “WHATS A MAN TO DO”
    LIKE SUM1 ALREADY SAID EVERY1 LIKES IT INSTANTLY
    I DONT THINK HE SHOULD RELEASE TRADING PLACES
    AS THAT SONG GOT BORING VERY QUICK

    ACTUALLY I THINK HE SHOULD JUS ABANDON THIS PROJECT N GET TO WRKIN ON NEW MATERIAL

    the album is herendous. I could have thrown together a better album using inspiration from my toilet paper and the squirrels outside of my door! I removed the entire thing from my iPhone instead for one song! And that song AINT EVEN ON THE ALBUM! “Echo” is probably one of the best tracks he’s laid out ever and it didn’t even make the cut? Thats sad.

    Sam stop hating. The album if FIRE!! “Ummmm maybe he should put out a better album in general”. You are a loser. You have no clue about the music industry, you low life.

    the album is nice but lets be honest its not fire
    though he is just getting his groove back
    he should of never fired his mama
    she was good at what she did
    HE SHOULD MAKE CANT WIN HIS NEXT SINGLE

  19. ChrisPix July 22, 2008

    I Can’t Win = His Mistakes …

    oyyy, some of you catty & vicious anonymous bloggers need to calm the eff down and stop being such nasty c****! Leave Sam alone and stop the nasty name calling! if you don't like what's said, leave some effective feedback on your views.. Besides, Sam is right! Maybe Usher should just drop a BETTER ALBUM! He should drop this project faster than he dropped his mom off of it and include her in the next one! A couple of points:

    1) the album is fire! Its so hot it makes me wanna go blow up my bathroom!

    2) He made his bed so now he can lie in it and smother himself with his cockiness while mom says "I TOLD U SO"!

    3) u anonymous c**** should visit my upcoming blog entitled,
    "Anonymous Usher Blogger Fans and the mothers that should have dropped them in their heads!!"

    Usher is living out, HIS MISTAKES!

    that's all!

  21. Soufian July 22, 2008

    i don’t even want to listen, i mean love in this club was fire but … but his fire is gone…there are new hotter artists out there and he cant just drop an album like this and expect to just enter the game again at the top

    Am I the only one who thinks "Before I Met You" is the jam? I can listen to that song all day! Let's keep it real Usher does not have another worldwide smash hit on this album. Hell, he'll be lucky if he can get a moderate R&B hit with this album. Now I feel like listening to Confessions so I can reminisce about better days…

  23. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    he should have put out appetite…its a club banger and a lot of people can relate…and he just put out a kind of depressing song…..if he really wants a slow song he should put out before I met you that song has so much power to it and I got a video treatment for it already lol

  24. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    I would’ve chosen “Best Thing” as the next single.. “His Mistakes” is ok but I would’ve waited and let it be the fourth single..

  25. Anonymous July 22, 2008

    I luv Usher’s album but I would chose another single like Best Thing

  26. melissa July 22, 2008

    Dam ya’ll some f***** haters. Why comment on a n**** if you don’t like him? I don’t get that s***. Hi Haters. Ya’ll happy cuz ya’ll got a theme song. F***** b******. Everyone love his mistakes. This could be the anthem song for dudes. Please, just leave Usher alone. If it ain’t one thing it’s another with you haters.

  27. vanessa July 22, 2008

    he should have let trading places out

  28. knox July 22, 2008

    After he ignored the success of Love in this Club part 2….I stopped concentrating on Usher!!!Wit a disappointing album I wud think he wud try his best 2 make it sell and he clearly isnt….u cannot go wrong wit Bey and Lil Wayne on the track!I dont know but I think thats Beys fault!

  31. Anonymous July 26, 2008

    What’s Your Name? is the third single.

  32. Anonymous July 29, 2008

    i like his mistakes… but trading places is clearly what i think, the best song on the album.

    the best thing is next for me.

    his singles should be
    3. what’s a man to do (for the fall)
    4. his mistakes (for the winter/christmas time)
    5. will work for love (to close the album) he should remix this with michelle williams i can see her on it
    he should rerelease the album with new songs and ballads with beyonce, michelle williams, brandy, keyshia cole, monica, kelly rowland, chris brown, justin timberlake, t.i., or mariah carey

    this aint even the 3rd single

  35. Anonymous August 16, 2008

    Well, I think “This Ain’t S**” would be great for the next single. It’s has a up tempo beat, and he really does need a hit right now. He needs to re release this cd, like he did for Confessions. Remixes or something.
