Usher is ready to drop new music … but his fans are not screaming “Yeah”. On Thursday after the R&B singer dropped news that he would be releasing his long-awaited ninth studio album “A” at midnight Friday folks seemed less than pleased.

Apparently fans are not feeling the idea of a trap R&B album since the project will be produced by Atlanta’s very own Zaytoven.

While others are wondering if he’s having a mid-life crisis and if he’s finally going to address those rumors.

Yep they went there.

Usher seems to have a good explanation for it all. Per the trailer, the album pays homage to his hometown of Atlanta and some of his favorite things: fast cars, private jets, waffle houses and strip clubs.

He also revealed the track list and cover art (which appears to be created by Virgil Abloh) for the album on Instagram, and he also posted previews for each song.

Tracklist:

1. Stay At Home
2. ATA
3. Peace Sign
4. You Decide
5. Birthday
6. She Ain’t Tell Ya
7. Say What U Want
8. Gift Shop

Honestly we kinda like it … I mean who doesn’t like a little trap with their R&B?

The legendary singer’s last album Hard II Love (2016) was his least commercially-successful LP to date so it only makes sense he coming back with full force.  As recently as a few days ago, Ursh was posted up with Jay-Z and RCA president Mark Pitts in the studio. While a list of guest features has not been revealed, it’s clear these two are definitely cooking up something special. The last time the duo recorded a track together was 2010’s “Hot Tottie.”

Usher previously collaborated with Atlanta native Zaytoven on the 2009 single “Papers” from his album Raymond V Raymond.

So can the two score another hit? Let us know if you think “A” will be a bop or flop in the comments below.
