They call him U-S-H-E-R, R-A-Y-M-O-N-D

So, sources are saying that Usher ‘yearns to return to his R&B beginnings with his next album ~ I couldn’t be happier!


Eric Bellinger

Singer-songwriter/Music Producer Eric Bellinger (Fine China Chris Brown) was asked the following by Billboard

What sound is Usher going for this time around?

Usher is at a place where he’s more comfortable. With his other projects, I think he was like, “Okay. I’m going to do this because I think people may want to hear this.” But, I think this time around, he’s going to do what he wants to do in his heart and that’s R&B, the stuff that got him here in the first place. He’s done so many genres of music and excelled in every area, so now he’s like, “Cool. What’s left for me to do? I’ve done everything. So, I’m going to take it back to R&B, timeless music.”

Considering the current state of R&B, do you think Usher will be able to successfully implement that?

I definitely do. He has always done R&B, even on the last project. We did “What Happened to U.” All of those were R&B, but with a different beat. We were able to experiment on “I Care For You,” with some next level, futuristic, dub step type of music, but still with the touch of smooth R&B within the melodies. [The album] is definitely still very commercial. It’s going to be for the radio and the club. He’s still Usher. He has to lead the pack.

Time will tell and RC will surely keep you posted!
