Usher admits to loosing his swagger somewhere between “Confessions” and “Here I Stand”. With the forthcoming album “Raymond Vs. Raymond” the chart-topper, with fire in his eyes, is intent on getting that swagger back !
Covering the latest issue of Billboard, Usher admits “I had checked out… I went all the way into being super husband and super dad, thinking, ‘I’ve got to be serious all the time. I’ve got to be the man.’ I put my swagger down for a minute, but I didn’t throw it away. Now it’s time to get it back.”
With a troubled marriage behind him, new management and music, Usher seems poised for a comeback with “Raymond Vs. Raymond”
Due in stores March 30, the album features “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home),” the Nicki Minaj assisted “Little Freak” and the just released single “OMG,” featuring will.i.am. But, according to Usher the album is also packed with renewed confidence and energy.
“A lot of things have happened in the last few years that could have broke me, but I’m still standing; rejuvenated with a new peace, confidence and energy,” says Usher. “I’ve got fire in my eyes.”
While Usher seems to be renewed and in a new place, the question is… do you think Usher can get his ‘swagger’ back with “Raymond Vs. Raymond” ?
