On Thursday (Oct. 11), Usherteased the release of his ninth studio album with a surprise announcement and trailer, after not releasing a studio album since 2016. Just hours after the announcement, Usher and his collaborator and producer Zaytovenunleashed their joint album A to the masses.
Not much was known about the project, but it clocks in at just eight tracks with Zaytoven handling all of the musical duties. On the album’s opener “Stay At Home,’ Future comes on board with the help out. The album’s only other future is Gunna on “Gift Shop.”
Usher’s last studio project was Hard II Love, released in September 2016. Zaytoven has been busy all 2018 with his albums Trapholizay, Let The Trap Say Amen with Lecrae, Beastmode 2 with Future, and a mixtape 6toven with Foolio.
Usher has been quiet for quite a while but that looks to be no longer the case as he will reportedly drop a new album tonight. Not only is the R&B legend gearing up for another run, but he will also be doing so with the assistance of Zaytoven who produced the project that is titled A.
A was revealed on Usher’s Instagram and will have a compact eight tracks. There are not any listed features to the album, however, earlier this week there was an image of JAY-Z joining Usher in the studio prompting many to believe that he could make an appearance.
A will be Usher’s first album since the 2016 release Hard II Love.
