If you’re not already groaning at will.i.am starting off singing “oh my gosh” in AutoTune, then continue at your own risk. While the echoed effect and stammering drums might bump on a Friday night… in Jersey…this track is more Jay Sean than Usher.
← “She Don’t Know” Feat. Ludacris
Though likely to grow on you after a few listens thanks to Bangladesh’s sharp trumpet blasts, this song lacks the clever lyrics or concept to keep you hooked.
← “Guilty” Feat. T.I.
Not Usher’s strongest vocal performance. Accused of cheating, the singer defends his seedy deeds and claims he’s been honorable, which means you can forget about “Foolin’ Around.”
← “So Many Girls”
Returning to his little black book of conquests, Usher gets boastful over pulsating synths, but this is a watered down and less enticing version of “Pro Lover.” See lyrics like: “Girl you so fly you ’bout to levitate.” Let’s not play this game…again.
If you’ve heard this on the radio, that’s good enough. Consider it the “worldly” song meant to appeal to the masses. It’s a track made for, I don’t know, performances at NBA All-Star games?
