Usher- Versus (album review/preview)

Got my hands on the new Usher EP “Versus” set for release August 24th, 2010 so thought I’d bless my Soulified folks with a little preview of the album as well as my thoughts on it. For those that don’t know what an “EP” is it stands for Extended Play which is pretty much a short album that usually has 3 to 5 songs. Versus has 5 songs if you exclude “There Goes My Baby” which was on Raymond VS Raymond and the “Someone to Love remix” which is Just Beiber’s song.

My first thought of this album when I first heard it was coming out just 4 months after Usher’s 6th studio album Raymond Vs Raymond was that these tracks were the tracks that didn’t make the cut. Especially knowing that production for this album took place during 2008 to 2010. If that is the case I couldn’t tell at all because every song on this album is pretty dope. The singles “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” featuring Pitbull,was released for the mainstream audiences, and “Hot Tottie” featuring Jay-Z was released for the urban audience but that shit isn’t urban to me at all. I mean yeah Jay-Z is on it but the song to me is boo boo. For one who the hell drinks hot tottie? Or for that matter who know’s what a hot tottie consist of? lol Of all drinks he could describe a woman as he choose that. And didn’t even spell it right (Toddy). lol

“Lingerie” is probably my favorite track on the EP. It has a grown ass, sexy up tempo vibe that goes into a dope Michael Jackson type vibe every time its about to go into the hook. And I happen to be a “freak for sexy lingerie.” hahaha Anyways enjoy the preview and download’s and make sure to get the album. Oh and here’s the “There Goes My Baby” video for those that havn’t seen it and love this track as much as I do. Not so much loving the video though. Usher seems to be feeling up on the concrete wall he’s singing against more then the love interest in the video. There not feeling or grown and sexy in it at all. What do yall think?
