Usher is nothing if not consistent: his past 2 singles have been dreadful, his subject matter rarely ventures from dancing, sex, sex appeal, or being sexy, & he has consistently referred to his upcoming album, Looking 4 Myself, as artistry. And oh, how we want to believe him.
I love you Usher. Seriously. My formative years would have been nothing without U Got It Bad, Burn, Yeah!, & Caught Up. The recent More is epic too. You are a legend in Atlanta, where I currently live. Scores of POP-lovers & normal Georgia folk rally behind you & your music. But listen, whoever talked you into releasing Scream as a single was seriously mistaken. I know you are hiding a great song in Looking 4 Myself, but Scream is not that song. R&B depends on you more than you know, & you cannot update it by essentially making it into dancePOP for pussies. Give us better. And while you're at it, quit with the antics, will you?
Thanks, Ursh. It's been real.
