Usher Shares Surprise New Album "A" for Streaming

October 12, 2018

  • A-list artist Usher just came out with A, his surprise album that dropped at midnight just hours after he first announced the project on social media. The eight-track project, Usher's ninth full-length studio release, "pays homage to Atlanta, with fellow Atlanta native Zaytoven behind the boards," writes Rolling Stone, and exhibits "trap influences alongside R&B-flavored slow jams." The set also features collaborations with Gunna and Future. A video trailer for A that dropped Thursday "features Usher and Zaytoven cruising around the city and checking out familiar Atlanta haunts, including Cascade Family Skating roller rink and a Waffle House alongside stops at strip clubs."
