      Agreed, he should have wait a little more.
      The new Britney album is not so bad at all ?

    • MUSICHEAD August 25, 2016

      No he needs the album out ASAP. No Limit is his hottest single in years and needs to build on it. Plus, record sales are irrelevant these days anyway. It’s all about the singles.

    • XYZ August 26, 2016

      As if the interest would be higher in November… He’ll never sell again as used to

      • Jay August 26, 2016

        But he has certified platinum on every album.

    • ? August 26, 2016

      His problem is that he married that man had kids to him, also he’s put his clothes on = flopping

    This sounds good, but Usher mistake was going pop. He was making great R&B records and selling very well.

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 25, 2016

      It’s that in the 2000’s R&B became pop. That’s what people need to understand. Both for Usher and ciara. R&b was pop in the early 2000’s and pop music was urban music for the most part. Pop music was urban music at that time. Now they are different and these artists are having a hard time adapting. Usher jumped on the whole crunk thing, that was pop at the time. Then crunk died and he went to dance music. Now he’s trying trap-n-b which is really more like trap-n-pop. Usher’s problem is that he is a damn trend follower.

    • MUSICHEAD August 25, 2016

      I disagree. For every pop single Usher put out, he gave us a great r&b song at the same time. Going pop is what kept Usher relevant. Usher is still relevant and just trying to find his way thru these tough times for black r&b artists.

    • ronnoc August 25, 2016

      Ok but I’m so sick of hearing this logic. He went “Pop” to stay relevant. But if he’d stayed in his whole Confessions-esque lane then you’d be bitching that he didn’t switch up his style to be more current.

    I like this, but it’s for the soundtrack and not his album. I was like THIS is IT Usher.

    • Chileplease August 25, 2016

      Missin U is for the album

      • Mark111 /.\ August 25, 2016

        Oh great, bc that’s the main song that I liked out of the two.

  4. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 25, 2016

    Missin’ you – he can keep that

    Champions – It’s okay, probably will grow on me the more I listen.

  5. MUSICHEAD August 25, 2016

    I feel like this movie has very little promo and very little buzz. It won’t do well at the box office but I definitely think his album will do very well.

    Missin u is fire

  7. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) August 26, 2016

    YES USHER!!! This is it! Missin You and Champions > the other singles

  8. Foxx August 26, 2016

    Yooo MISSIN U is fire! It sounds like a modern day Confessions song! Whoever produced it did a great job and I hope to hear more of the blend of old and new on the album. Too bad a song like Missin U will be ignored by todays generation. It has too much of an old school R&B flavor for them…hopefully I’ll be proven wrong.

  9. GEEZUS August 26, 2016

    Missing U is fire tho

  10. Coolness August 26, 2016

    Missing U is great. From a vocal standpoint, he’s never been more prescient. However, watch people still say ‘he’s no longer R&B’ and whatever other BS has been sprouted his way since 2008/2010. I say let him just do him.

  11. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 26, 2016

    Wow people realy like this missin’ you a lot for some reason. What am I not seeing!

  12. Nowd Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi August 26, 2016

    Pretty good song

  13. s.a August 26, 2016

    Damn!The intro of Missin U is great but after 1:07 the song gets f***** up.
