Jermaine Dupri To Work With Usher on Next LpDecember 28th, 2008
Can JD help Usher return to greatness? Let me just say if Usher’s next album isn’t up to par, I think it’s safe to say he’s completely lost it. Here I Stand wasn’t a bomb dropped on the industry like Confessions was, it was the case of the ball being dropped. Don’t get me wrong, he had a couple cuts on the project that made some noise (“Trading Places”, “Love In This Club” ) but everything else practically enhanced my ability to press the next track button.
Sharing the same sentiment, Jermaine Dupri, one of the masterminds behind Usher’s epic Confessions Lp, is gearing up to work with the R&B titan starting January 16. JD made the announcement during his latest “Living The Life” YouTube webisode. Dupri said while sipping on a glass of red wine, “I’m starting on Usher’s album January 16, so episodes of “Living The Life” starting on January 16 will be about Usher’s album; how it’s taking place and what’s going on with it.”
Could this possibly mean Usher’s presence will be once again felt significantly in the R&B realm? In addition to JD assisting with Usher’s return, our modern day BabyFace, Neyo, will also lending a helping hand on Usher’s sixth album. Back in November, Neyo was the first artist to publicly reveal his true feelings about Here I Stand (slide over here to read). What would really be amazing if JD added Neyo to his Dream Team of writers and producers ( Johnta Austin, Brian M. Cox) to help Usher get back on top.
Can JD, Usher and Neyo create the ultimate project??? What are your thoughts????
