Usher Announces New Album ‘Flawed’

It’s been nearly four years since Usher’s last album, but the wait is almost over. The R&B superstar has finally revealed a title for the oft-delayed project—Flawed.

In a Twitter video with artist Daniel Arsham, Usher made the big announcement. “What are we working on?” asks Arsham before Usher responds, “Amazing, incredible, awesome…”

“For what?” replies Arsham, while Usher reveals, “For Flawed, my new album. It’s coming.”

Usher previously dropped hints at the album’s impending release. On New Year’s Eve, he debuted two new songs, “Hard to Love” and “Cards,” during a private concert for Samsung Pay in Hollywood.

Flawed marks Usher’s eighth album, his first since 2012’s Looking 4 Myself. He acknowledged the delay while on stage.

“I feel responsible. I look at all of my social media and my fans been a little mad at me because I pushed my album back,” he told the crowd. “But tonight, if you don’t mind, I just want to share something with you. This is just something I’ve been working on, I figured I’ll just play it for you.”
