To say Usher pulled out all the stops at his most recent listening event for Looking For Myself would be an understatement. Usher teamed up with the cast of Fuerza Bruta for an interactive album premiere. “A foggy haze permeated the cavernous performance space at New York City’s Daryl Roth Theater, where the 33-year-old theatrically sequenced the entirety of the project to strobling lights and choreographed moves,” says Rolling Stone. Forbes said, “…last night swaggered Usher, dressed in a white suit, connected to a zip cord connected to a harness he wore under the suit. While his songs played…He ran through “walls,” smashed through paper and confetti, and finally, of course, flew through the air with the greatest of ease.”

Fuerza Bruta floods the senses with breathtaking visuals and dynamic music as performers run through moving walls and frolic in a watery world suspended just above the audience. The non-stop action and kinetic aerial imagery is set to a beat-driven, heart-pumping soundtrack. Since its opening in 2007, Fuerza Bruta has garnered rave reviews with The New York Times hailing the show “a physical and visual extravaganza,” while the New York Post describes it as, “a dazzling blend of erotic, hypnotic, aquatic.”
It’s official! Usher to release his seventh studio album LOOKING FOR MYSELF on June 12th on RCA Records. Mr. Raymond is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches, working with a host of top-notch collaborators including Salaam Remi, Diplo, Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, and Max Martin, among others.
The genre-defying lead single from LOOKING FOR MYSELF entitled “Climax” is receiving exceptional critical acclaim: Rolling Stone honored it with a 4 star review and calls it “Sexxxxxxy.”Pitchfork declares “Climax” “an exercise in the power of restraint, as Usher sings the woes of a romance stuck in limbo, alternating whispery falsettos and earnestly pained howls….Diplo shows uncharacteristic subtlety behind Usher’s sentiment, with a beat that seems to hang suspended in midair.” The Los Angeles Times writes “Climax” “is rooted in pure soul, with Diplo employing sexy synths behind a dripping downbeat. Draw the curtains, light a candle and take a listen.” Perez Hilton exclaims “LOVE IT!! This song is a trance-y, smooth HIT!! USA Today describes “Climax” as “Usher’s pulsing new single showcasing his silky-strong tenor” and Entertainment Weekly highlights Usher’s “steaming-hot falsetto.
