Is he doing A Clockwork Orange meets Grease plus R&B song and dance?! This video is way cooler now than it was when we were little. But then again, was Usher reading A Clockwork Orange when he was 16 and wanted to put it in his video? Probably not. But you never know. Maybe Usher is a literal genius.
We need more R&B these days. I miss these jams! Usher is going kind of an electronic route, which is cool when you think about him evolving into what’s current, but sad when you think about the state of R&B music. Where’s it at in popular culture? Everything is so loud and synthy. Which is fun, but sometimes a girls gotta slow jam to some D’angelo. I really miss some hot R&B.
