Biography

"On this album, different things inspired me," says Usher. "Normally, I'm pulling from personal relationships and from older musical styles, but the things that motivated me this time were sounds and music that were very new and indie, like going to the Coachella festival or to Ibiza. I’ve traveled the world, toured nearly every continent—this phase of my life ... Read more in Amazon's Usher Store

Editorial Reviews

On his seventh studio album, LOOKING 4 MYSELF, Usher works with a host of top-notch collaborators including Salaam Remi, Diplo, Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, and Max Martin, among others.

LOOKING 4 MYSELF comes on the heels of his two multi-platinum chart-topping collaborations "Without You" by David Guetta which held the #1 spot on the Pop charts and "Promise" with Romeo Santos which held the #1 spot on the Latin charts.

Usher has been ranked by the RIAA as one of the best-selling artists in American music history, having sold over 43 million albums worldwide. He has won numerous awards including seven Grammy Awards and was recently named the number one Hot 100 artist of the 2000s decade. Billboard named him the second most successful artist of the 2000s decade, with his career-propelling 2004 album Confessions being ranked as the top solo album of the 2000s decade. Usher has attained nine Hot 100 number-one hits (all as a lead artist) and has attained seventeen Hot 100 top-ten singles.

3.0 out of 5 stars What is becoming of Usher? June 14, 2012
By Tre
Format:MP3 Music
What has become of arguably the face of modern RnB?

What began with the all the lame pop beats spearheaded by O.M.G. is just permeating his albums. From a man who used to have less than 3 throwaway tracks on each album it is quite distressing to only like 5 of 18 songs on an album.

That said this album is very heavily influenced by the current dub-step that seems to be invading all the clubs currently and the only track that doesn't suffer for it is "I Care" as usher manages to stay in the realm of RnB by slowing the tempo to a speed that allows him to remind us that "Hey... I can still sing without falsetto!" "Climax" is in my opinion the better of the two singles, "Scream" being the obligatory club anthem, which at least doesn't comment on a woman's "boobies" this time. "Lemme See" is the third of my favorites from the album, staying to the true theme of RnB which is getting women in the sack I only wish usher had written another verse rather than getting a guest appearance from the out of place Rick Ross, this token braggadocios verse is not one of Ross' finest guest appearances. Usher sings a very self reflective track very reminiscent of Confessions era Usher on "What Happened To U" where he looks back on getting wrapped on his career while missing out on a personal connection. And the final quality track is only on the deluxe edition track 17 "2nd Round" a very classic "girl in every port" song, another staple of the genre, but Usher always pulls them off with such precision and dignity.

Other than those, there were 6 tracks: "Drive", "I.F.U.", "Lessons For The Lover", "Looking 4 Myself"(strangely reminds me of the Police), "Scream" and "Sins Of My Father"(superbly written, executed with great mediocrity) that left me with a massive feeling of "Eh...

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking for himself in strange places... June 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
For album number 7, Usher decides to throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. Working with Pharrell, Diplo, will.i.am, Salaam Remi, Swedish House Mafia, and even Empire Of The Sun's Luke Steele, "Looking 4 myself" finds him moving through a hodge-podge of musical styles in an attempt to find himself.

Amazingly, most times it works. Opening on a shaky footing is the will.i.am-produced "Uptown Girl"-sampling Dubstep "Can't Stop Won't Stop". Much better is the (also) Dubstep "I Care For U" with gut shaking bass and lovely MJ inspired vocals.

"Scream" is Euro Dance with stabbing and swirling synths, sure to get you moving. Other dance numbers are the Guetta-sounding "Numb", and the aptly titled "Euphoria" (produced by Swedish Mafia).

Lead single "Climax" is a shimmery falsetto-sung ballad with rising harmonies produced by Diplo. Other ballads are "Dive", "What Happened To U", and the steamy and lovely "Lessons For The Lover".

"Lemme See" features Rick Ross, a mid tempo meandering groove with Ross oddly name-checking Trayvon Martin, "Twisted" is a retro Funk/Soul percussion-rich number produced by Pharrell, the title track features Luke Steele and is sunny Indie Pop, The spectacular "Sins Of My Father" is produced by Salaam Remi, an atmospheric groove with biographical lyrics. "I.F.U" is set to a percolating beat with Middle Eastern riffs. "Say The Words" is eighties summery soul, akin to Beyoncé's "Love On Top".

The variety of styles is sure to draw the ire of fans of his earlier albums like "Confessions", while also winning him over some new fans. One thing though, his singing has matured even more, and this album shows an artist unafraid of risks. His best album yet, in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Yet!!!! July 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I will have to say that this is Ushers best album to date. It has very orginal beats and melody's. Though fair warning that the lyrics are very very sexy, I have never been so turned on by an album. I can't waite to see all the videos that come from this album. But ladies, make sure you listen to this in the privacy of your own home because you might just get a little hot!!! And fellows there are plently of tracks with deep bass and great dance beats to enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for myself found something even more July 15, 2012
By I.B.
Format:MP3 Music
This new album from usher puts him on a whole different playing field from even the last album that he did. Now while certain things may soung very similar to his versus album or raymond versus raymond album....there is a wide array of different sounds going on here. SOngs like:

Best cuts that show the total range of sounds on album:

Climax
Cant stop wont stop
I care for you
Twisted
Dive
Lessons for the Lover
Sins of my father
I.F.U. - (Reminds me of when he first blew up form his 2nd album - that same sound)
Show Me

Cons:

The track "Hot thing" could of really been left off. This is the only tru flaw with the album.

Overall I think any fan or non-fan of usher should be pleased and open to the growth and progress made on this album. This is about half the album I named above as being the best cuts but overall I like the album except for one song. I really dont see the fuss over this change besdies the fact that many fans are not willing to hear anything too outside of the norm of what he may usually do. I feel that with the deluxe he has given everyone more than enough of everything he has done thus far to show diversity while still not cutting out too many of his core fans.

Get it!
