Usher‘s newest album ‘Looking 4 Myself’ was just released on June 8th. Didn’t know? Not to worry, not many people did either. It seems his ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Raymond and a stalker who believes their married, people forgot about the music. Although the album debuted #1, it sold a mere 128,000 units in its first week. Even with great songs like “Climax”, “Scream” and “Let Me See”, people have forgotten just why Usher is one of today’s hottest male artists. This is why we’ve chosen him as our throwback Friday artist.
Let’s go back to one of the more pivotal moments in his career. The year was 2001 and the song was “U Got It Bad”.
This was (still is) such a good song!
*Tid Bit:* The single is from Usher’s 2001 album 8701. It reached number 1 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, and reached the top 5 in the United Kingdom and Australia. It was also listed at #99 on the Billboard: All-Time Hot 100 Top Songs and named the 15th most successful song from 2000 to 2009, on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade.
