I used to be a Usher "hater." Hate is strong word, I was never like "FUCK THAT DUDE!" but more just never really fucked with him because early on I always felt like he acted bigger than he was (I know... I know... music snob bullshit. I'm trying to be better lol). But sometime over the years, he literally grew into the role that he was pretending he was. And I respect that on some Vision Board shit that he like, knew who he could be and just fucking owned it straight up.
He killed it. The songs he picked FUCKING GO and he could do a plenty more in that same style of arrangements and have people thinking about his catalog maybe even more favorably.
Like most here, I see him as an artist who never met his masterpiece but still..he’s had some JAMS in his post confessions life. And it’s easy to lose track of how bonkers Confessions was/is. Sometimes IRL I say to people that it’s the best R Kelly album ever. It’s impressive how many r&b cats tried to basically remake it afterwards too.
And I damn near can’t take someone seriously who doesn’t like Confessions PART ONE with the Stevie harmonica solo on there. And SEDUCTION!? Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid..jamming TIL THIS DAY!

Yep. That’s another good one. Brother has some jams.
