Hot Shot: Usher Beams Bold On Billboard Magazine

Published: Friday 4th May 2012 by Sam

Be it R&B or Pop, Usher is dominating the charts. Hence, it’s only fitting that he covers Billboard magazine in the run-up to the  release of new album ‘Looking For Myself’.

The hitmaker’s relationship with industry juggernaut will also see him take to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20th.

Due on June 12th, ‘Looking’ is preceded by singles ‘Climax’, ‘Scream’, and ‘Lemme See’. You ready for the takeover?

Your thoughts?

    I think Usher Looks very nice on the cover of Billboard. I am very proud of him. I would like to follow his career and I look up to him. God has truly blessed a gentleman with such talent. I hope that he keeps up the good work.

    Usher is a sellout. Stop making white pop music for a white audience.

  8. USHER May 4, 2012

    @SBC19

    WTF??

    PLEASE STOP TALKING S***!!!

    MUSIC IS MUSIC AND WAS MADE FOR EVERYONE, IRREGARDLESS OF IT’S BLACK ORIGIN.

    IF THE MAJORITY OF THE PUBLIC HAD A GOOD TASTE IN MUSIC, ASIDE FROM THE MINORITY OF PEOPLE WHO “ACTUALLY” DO, THEN EVERY MUSICIAN WOULD BE MAKING R&B/SOUL MUSIC. BUT THEY DON’T? AND WHATS WRONG WITH BLACK PEOPLE DOING POP MUSIC? HIS SINGLE “CLIMAX” HAS TOPPED THE R&B CHARTS AND NOW “SCREAM” WILL TOP THE POP CHARTS.

    HAVE A SEAT!!!>>>>>>>

    LOL. I GUESS. HE DOES NEED A TRIM. USHER WITH HAIR, IN MY OPINION, NEVER LOOKED GOOD. 😉

    He looks like Jammy Fox

    I haven’t been feeling usher since confessions. Ever since he sold his soul to POP and became a sell out he’s developed this narcissitic approach to his music and image.

  13. Stephanie May 4, 2012

    It’s a childish pose but hey at least it ain’t Chris Brown doing it, lol

  14. Frachella May 4, 2012

    Boo, I would have rather had Brandy, Mo or both of them on the cover together. I will just have to go pick up essence.

  15. peppie May 4, 2012

    That’s right Usher is a sellout. He loves his white audience which includes Justin B. fans to. That is what you dumb f*** don’t realize that he also has his boyfriend Justin fans buying also. If you notice how fast Usher singles went to #1 & 2 on R&B itunes knocking Chris B right out those spots. And this comes from d*** riding your fave instead of being a fan and buy and request.

    I’m happy for Usher and seeing him on the Billboard cover there is no question that he will win the Billbaard award

  16. peppie May 4, 2012

    One more thing Trey is doing well also he’s right behind Chris in the R&B itunes chart, but when Trey’s video comes out he will probably take over the #1 spot.

    oh and basic B****** above me , can you just STFU ?!! 🙄

    it is just a god damn mag cover !! 😡

    Since his divorce, Usher looks IN PAIN.

    He used to be so vivid, I don’t know if it has anything to do with his hairdo or his beard or that dam* divorce but he definitely needs to work on that.

  20. Tbozfan10 May 4, 2012

    Wtf? Usher sold out?! In which way? Because he made a few songs that were of pop/dance origins he is no longer an r&b artist?! Get real. Usher has been doing r&b since 1992 and continues to do so. Just because he has decided to make some other type of songs over 15 years later doesn’t make him a sellout. Maybe he just wanted to try and experiment with a different sound since he has been doing the other for so long? Give it a rest. A lot of you just want to have a reason to hate on somebody.

  21. SugayRay May 4, 2012

    You guys are so lame.

    The reason the shot of Usher is like that is beacuse of him playing Sugay Ray Leonard in a upcoming boxing movie. So the cover is clearly a reference to that.

  22. Theman May 4, 2012

    Some people just complain to much. Y’all complain about artists not doing r&b, but when they do make it y’all don’t buy it. Face it you have to be versatile to sell albums. Usher is an r&b artist, but he also appeals to the pop auience. Therefore, him catering to both audiences is all good.

    @SBC19

    Racist f*****. People like u are the reason why artists should never listen to their fans 100% and drive themselves to the ground in any form of media.

  24. R. May 5, 2012

    Which movie is he gonna be coming in soon. I know it’s some boxing movie, but what’s the name again? Anyway Can’t wait for another memorable era and yea he is gonna deliver. Can’t wait for his massive promo for this new CD to begin.
