Usher Announces New Album ‘Hard II Love’ Shares New Song ‘Missin U’

It's Ursher, baby.

Usher has released a handful of singles in the last few months, but now comes official word that a new album is just around the corner. On Twitter, he shared the announcement that his eighth studio album Hard II Love will be available September 16th.

In addition to the singles he’s already shared, including “Crash” and “No Limit,” Usher premiered a new song “Missin U” today (August 26). It’s got a  touch of 1970s Stevie Wonder about the chorus, but starts out quite differently.

In the opening seconds, Usher describes his perfect woman. “I mean everybody wants somebody that’s got confidence, you know, it’s in her attitude, the way she walks–nice legs. She’s gotta be beautiful, nice thin waist, fat a–, ooh and them soft little lips,” he says. That phrase, “little lips” becomes looped, dropping in speed over a heavy bass track before Usher comes in with his smooth R&B flare.

Fans who pre-order Usher’s new album will receive four instant downloads, including the songs he’s already released “Crash” and “No Limit” along with “Missin U” and “Champions” (off the film Hands of Stone in which Usher stars as Sugar Ray Leonard). Hands of Stone hits theaters today.
