Usher Hints at More New Music This Year

Usher

Usher is currently on the promotional campaign trail for his new EP Versus, the sequel to his platinum release Raymond v. Raymond. But the “OMG” singer recently hinted that the EP, slated to hit stores tomorrow, may not be the final chapter in the Raymond saga.

“There’s an array of new music that you guys actually haven’t heard,” he told ABC News in a backstage interview at last week’s “GMA” taping. “There’s another episode coming later on this year as well.”

Though Usher kept mum on the details of the next release, the next installment of the saga could potentially surpass the success of its predecessors. Released this past March, Raymond vs. Raymond has become one of Usher’s most successful albums, boasting the hits “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home),” “Lil Freak” featuring Nicki Minaj, “There Goes My Baby” and the international smash “OMG” featuring will.i.am. The album crossed the platinum threshold this past June.

Versus is already off to a good start. The 9-track release includes the hits “Hot Tottie” featuring Jay-Z, “Somebody to Love (Remix)” featuring Justin Bieber and “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love,” which he performed last Friday during his GMA concert.

    Maybe he wanted to record new stuff? With the exception of Hot Tottie and DJ Got US Fallin’ In Love, all the rest are throwaway RvR tracks, which most of leaked.

    Usher is doing his thing as always and Here I Stand wasn’t a bad album. If Usher would do a duet album it would have be with someone like Beyonce or R Kelly, you know people that’s on his level of talent. No disrespect to Trey but why would he do an album with him when he could probably do it with the legend who Trey tries to be

    True NO R&B singer on the male side is on Ushers level, people slept on Here I Stand that was a great album & so is Raymond v Raymond, 2 Number #1 singles this man is incredible. Trey Songz CANT TOUCH Usher, sell over 45 million albums world wide first!
