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

Amazon.com

On his third studio effort (and fourth overall), 22-year-old R&B/pop star Usher Raymond makes the not-so-simple transition from post-teen heartthrob to love man. He does it with solid songs and a generous helping of charisma and vocal acumen, making this much-delayed collection a hot summer treat. Usher is aided in his musical efforts by renowned hit-makers like the Neptunes, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (who deliver soaring ballads like "Can U Help Me"), Jermaine Dupri, and new jack Edmund Clement who penned the irresistible single "U Remind Me." With catchy tracks and emotive vocals, Usher revs up his sex quotient and unleashes a winning blend of street-honed jams and passionate love songs. --Amy Linden

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda middle of the road for Usher's new cd October 15, 2001
By Haygn
Format:Audio CD
First, let me say that I am an Usher fan. Though I was not eagerly awaiting his new release, I did make a point to go to the record store the day of it's release and buy it. Although I was not necessarily disappointed, neither was I very impressed. The cd opens with the refreshing "U Remind Me"..the number one hit that radio seems to have tried to play out, but still remains at the top of everyone's individual playlists. The following track "I Don't Know" featuring P Diddy, seems contrived. It sounds too much like what EVERY R&B male is trying to do these days..we need less of these types of songs. Yet a standout track is the Neptunes produced "U Don't Have to Call" on which the artist really shines. The album does have its peaks. But conversely it does have it's valleys. Usher tries to show off his sensuality and proclaim that he is a sex symbol by at times being way too overtly sexual..almost perverse. Perhaps he should take a lesson from the ladies, Alicia Keys, Aaliyah and others an let the sexiness come from the image, rather than becoming lewd.

3.0 out of 5 stars GROWS ON U November 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
GROWS ON YOU...That's exactly what Usher new album,8701,did to me."U Remind Me" was weak when I first heard it on the radio but
then a couple weeks went by and bam,it's stuck in my head.Even
the predictable Jermaine Dupri-produced ballad "U Got It Bad"
was one of my favorites on urban radio as time went by.
And guess what,that's exactly what 8701 did too:grow on me.
The Neptunes-produced "I Don't Know",featuring a unsuprisingly
weak P. Diddy,was sort of corny at first but the thumping
start-stop beat and "la la la la" refrain got me hooked.
Yet,that's not to say that 8701 doesn't have an instant
favorites.Among the best tracks is the breezy Neptunes confection
"U Don't Have To Call"-which also in it's vocal arragement pays
demure but pleasent tribute to Usher's hero Michal Jackson- and
the pretty Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis-helmed ballad "Can U Help Me"
(which ranks up high along with Force MD's "Tender Love" and
Janet's "Come Back To Me" among Jam & Lewis most acomplished
ballads).
So ultimatly,Usher's 8701 is a radio friendly yet satisfying
pop-R&B album,even if it's takes a couple of listens to figure
that out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Usher 8701 (Review) November 7, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is my review of the amazing CD 8701 by Usher Raymond. First of all this CD took about 4 or 5 days to get into it but "U Remind Me" and "U Got It Bad" were instant favorites because they are very catchy songs and I really like the song "Can U Help Me" which describes Can U Help Me get my life where it's suppose to be and I like the song "U Don't Have To Call" both of those songs should be singles. But in my opinion there should be 4 or 5 singles on this CD, including "I Don't Know" and/or "U-Turn". "U-Turn is a dance jam which Usher wants U to put your hands up and bend your knees and bounce around in a circle and get down with it. "I Don't Know" is a fast track feat. P. Diddy. (U Got It Bad is my all-time favorite of my time). "Can U Help Me" is a slow song which deserves to be a single by Early 2002. If not "Can U Help Me" It will be "I Don't Know" or "U Don't Have To Call", or even "If I Want To" which is a song saying "I can take u from your man if I want to". One of my other favorites that might be a single is "Twork It Out" which is a very sexual song and U-Turn Which I already mentioned earler. "Hottest Thing" is also one of my songs the song describes when your in a club and u see a very attracted woman and U want to meet and start a relationship with her. "Good Ol Ghetto" is a song desribing when U where a teenager and U reminisce about the old days. "U R The One" is a song saying or describing "Love at At first Sight". "I Can't Let U Go" is a song describing I love U so much I just can't let U go. Overall I give this CD a A+ because Usher works very hard in this CD and It really shows. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars From 87 to 01, Usher is doing it his way... February 26, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Usher is continuing to make great cds. His debut release was a bit to slow and his "Live" album was kind of not very good, but on "My Way" and "8701", Usher proves the limits of R&B music. Somehow, he combines hip-hop flavor into an R&B album. For a good part of "8701" Usher holds his title by making great songs, but there are some weak ones. The ups and downs of "8701" are shown in my list below:
1. Intro-lude 8701 - I really can't say much about this one, since it's just an intro. Usher does keep it short and to the point with it, though.
2. U Remind Me - Great song. Usher stretches in this song how he sees a girl he would love to get with, but his haunted memories of a girl who was his worst nightmare come back to haunt him when he sees her for the fact that she looks exactly like his nightmare girlfriend.
3. I Don't Know featuring P. Diddy - Really hot club song. In this one, Usher tells about a group of girls going to the club, but he has no idea what they came to do, he just knows that he came to party...
5. U Got It Bad - I cannot stress how good this one is. I am so glad he released it instead of "I Don't Know" for his second track. In this one, Usher tells about how bad life without a girlfreind is, that's the meaning of having it bad.
6. If I Want To - Keeps moving with the good tracks. In "If I Want To", Usher tells about how he can get any girl, at any time, any place. If this were so, then why does he have it bad?
7. I Can't Let U Go - Seems theres no stop to the good songs. With this one, Usher is losing his mind over breaking up with a girl, features some lyrics from Jermaine Dupri.
8. U Don't Have To Call - Continuing hot track.
