Kinda hard to believe that its been almost 20 YEARS since Usher dropped his first album! If you’re 18, you were barely getting your first glimpse of the world when Usher released his very first album, “Usher.” Today, Usher’s star continues to shine bright as he prepares for the release of his seventh studio album, “Looking 4 Myself.”

At 33 years old, Usher is more inspired than ever about his music, going as far to say that he feels that he is “near a rebirth.” I had the opportunity to interview Usher a couple of months ago and I remember his being so passionate about his new music that he even contemplating GIVING away some tracks for FREE! (although he may be having second thoughts about that now…LOL)

In an interview with Reuters, Usher spoke candidly about the musical direction of his new album. In reference to his previous albums, he admitted:

“I’ve felt restricted in a lot over the last several years and maybe it’s because I was holding myself back. Maybe I felt like I needed to conform to some specific standard. I got to the point where I said, ‘I gotta go with what I feel and hopefully people will follow me.’
