The video was great too!

I think Moving Mountains and Trading Places were good album tracks, but not as strong as his former singles.
I didn't like LITC. It has a nice beat, but that's pretty much it. Usher's vocals don't really shine through-out the song, plus there were too much going on at the background and that atrocious rapping was included. IMO, Part 2>>>. Love both the king and queen on that 1 hot track. However, atrocious rapping appears again on this song.

Also, Trading Places is HOT AF! Definitely single-worthy! I believe it flopped as it was released as one of the last singles of the era plus the era was already done a couple months after the album release, so Trading Places didn't get it's chance to shine.

since the thread in the R&B section is dead, i wanted to say that tell me is probably my all time favourite usher song. I'm addicted, girls. I'm super hardcorely (bigly) in love. That song with a haunting music video with some models etc - black n white - and it would have smashed harder than anything in 2016. :cry:

It's not true. He already issued a statement. I think it was more of a test the water kinda thing and once he got a negative response from the people he decided not to go through with it.

Usher reportedly paid $1.1M to woman he allegedly infected with herpes

This sex scandal won’t be going away.

Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed the pop star infected her with herpes, court papers show.

The documents were first published Wednesday by Radar Online, but they appear to date to late 2012.

The 38-year-old “Confessions” singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010, according to the court papers. But nonetheless, he had unprotected sex with the claimant without confessing that he was carrying the virus, the papers add.

The law is clear in California: It is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD. Usher allegedly did just that when he told the victim he had tested negative for the virus, despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis, the court papers say.

“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal docs said.

The claimant was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.

Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills in 2012 — $2,754.40 in all, the court papers show. That’s when he also had his doctor call the woman to tell her that the singer did indeed carry the herpes virus.

He had, apparently, for many years. The legal documents noted that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010, around when he finalized his divorce to Tameka Foster after she accused him of cheating.

The singer married his current wife, Grace Miguel, in 2015.

The Daily News reached out to the R&B singer, but a request for comment was not immediately returned.

In the U.S., one out of every six people ages 14 to 49 years have genital herpes, which is spread through vaginal, oral or anal sex. It can be spread to sexual partners, even when people who have it show no symptoms.

Twitter's been having a field day with this news. The fact that he had a #1 hit in "Burn" makes it almost too easy...
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

It's so sad that his career turned out to be like this, to think he was touted as the next Michael Jackson (before Justin Timberlake eventually eclipsed him).

Yeah you are 100% correct.
Album after album I wanted him to get back on track but it never seemed to happen.
I'm still sure he can reinvent himself at some point though,

I feel so sad for him, he seems to be a really nice person, he has always kept whatever issue or feud in his life very private and has always been a man of class, but in the urban world, if you're not hot and successful or if you're into some big mess or trouble, they even beat you down harder and make you a bigger joke! Sad his career has come to this, all his Instagram comments are about the herpes issue. :-? :-?
