Will You Be Buying Usher’s ‘Looking For Myself’?

Published: Tuesday 12th Jun 2012 by Sam

Today marks the global release of Usher‘s seventh studio album ‘Looking For Myself’.

A mixed medley of genres, the hotly anticipated set has seen the star re-embrace his R&B roots, while “discovering” a flavoursome brand of Dance which sets him apart from the generic-soaked Electro-Pop that’s on its way out. Audio-underlining of this comes in the form of chart-smashes ‘Climax’ and ‘Scream’, as well as stellar album cuts such as ‘Euphoria’ and ‘Numb’.

Put simply, we’re in love with the record.

Yet, ever keen to hear what YOU – the That Grape Juice faithful – are saying. We want to know…

Will you be buying Usher’s ‘Looking For Myself’?

If so, why? If not, why? Sound off below!

    I wish Usher the very best with this project and I’m sure it will at least go GOLD. But I’m going to have pass on buying. It’s just too poppy for me. He will never have another classic album like “Confessions”

      I agree with @Ernest and I’ll pass on this CD also. Don’t get me wrong I really like Usher.

    Before the group of elitists lonely r&b exclusive folks come in, this article is made to bait them, it’s not Usher going back to his roots, its more Usher’s first time experimenting with new sounds.

    I love the album, definitely his best since Confessions, and might be just as good or better. Love all the tracks, no filler imo, something that wasn’t the case with Confessions.

    And let the hate commence with all the “USHER SOLD OUT!!!” BS. It’s sad how people refuse to give things a chance and listen to the damn thing and let it sink in… Alas, some people just love to be stuck in that little box of theirs.

    Oh and just so people know… It’s not the black crowd exclusively that go out and buy his albums…. Same with his concerts…. FYI.

    I am definitely going to buy this album! I love everything I have heard from it so far except for “Scream”…that song is generic pop noncense like everything else out right now.

  12. trucieb June 12, 2012

    Collectively a great album. You get a bit of everything; pop, rock, r&b and a whole lot of s***! Needless to say I’ve already purchased my copy.

  13. Hush June 12, 2012

    Usher has fallen off. Besides, I don’t check for sellouts. So nope. When he serves up another Confessions or 8701, then I’ll put him back on my radar…until then…nope.

  14. Jussaying June 12, 2012

    I wasn’t going to buy it but I’m happy I purchased the deluxe edition from iTunes. I only dislike the song Scream.

    For those who harp about it not being rnb you don’t understand who Usher is. He is an artist who has always gone on par with the trend. 2004 and previous, black artists and Rnb dominated Billboard. And in such it was easy to state black artists were “rnb.” But in today’s world, it’s not the case anymore so our “Rnb” stars who wish to remain relevant are adapting. That’s what Usher does and he’s done it well with this album.

    No, it doesn’t sound like Confessions and its not supposed to. In 2004, lil jon was huge – that’s why Usher recruited him for Yeah. In 2001, Neptunes were huge, that’s why Usher recruited them on the 8701 album. In 1998, Jermaine Dupri was huge, that’s why he was on My Way. And in 94 (or was it 95) bad boy was huge, that’s why Puffy was on Ushers debut.

    Think about that and consider which producers and sound dominates the charts now.

  19. Alex June 12, 2012

  20. Failure 03 June 12, 2012

    lol look at the stealth troll disliking every positive response towards the album. How sad, get a life.

  21. yeyay June 12, 2012

    I hope he can get over 300k in the US for the 1st week…

  22. Gr3g June 13, 2012

    OMG was my ish and way before it ever took off but I’m not feeling any of the dance tracks this go around. However everything else is tight. IFU is my favorite. So yeah, I will pick up a copy…at some point LoL.
