So, let’s just skip the formalities and get straight to the point, son. The fact of the matter is, this new Usher and Ella Mai song is incredible, man. I mean, THIS is the type of music that I want to hear from him, fam. Yeah, I know that he’s tried different sounds, such as that ill-advised album with Zaytoven, but real Usher fans know what we want, bruh. Frankly, if Jermaine Dupri ain’t involved in the production, then Usher can keep it, brethren. With all of that being said, I’m glad to say that the band is back together.
Ok, for those who missed it, Usher is gearing up to release his Confessions 2 album. Now, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I normally hate when artists make follow-ups to classic projects. The way I see it, legends just need to leave their legendary shit alone, man. In any case, I’ve decided to put my hesitation on pause once I found out that Dupri was back behind the boards. In addition, Bryan-Michael Cox, who’s also responsible for a bunch of Usher’s biggest hits, is back on the beats too. Meaning, we might actually have a chance at some magic, fam.
Moving on, once I heard Usher’s new joint with Mai, which samples “I Like The Way (The Kissing Game)” by Hi-Five, I was all in, bruh. Shit, from the 808‘s to the bass line to the vocal harmonies, the song has a lot of the elements that I fucking love, son. In addition, the music video, which has appearances from Snoop Dogg, Eric Bellinger, Diddy‘s sons, etc., has a dope ass house party vibe. Side note, house parties have always, ALWAYS been better than the club, man. Real talk, this isn’t even up for debate, fam. It just is what it is.
In the end, there’s nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, I just hope that the rest of the album is as fuego as this song, son. By and by, everyone can peep the “Don’t Waste My Time” video below. At the end of the day, I’m just hyped that Usher is back working with the right team, man. All I can say is, Usher and Jermaine Dupri don’t miss, fam. That is all. LC out.
