The lowdown: Usher doubles up and releases his second album of 2010, a mix of dance floor hits and slow songs. The upbeat tracks are addictive and sure to be Summer jams, but the cheesy R&B ballads are best left unclicked.
Choice tracks:
"DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love"
"Hot Tottie"
"Somebody to Love"
Download this album if you: Want to dance, dance like it's the last, last night of your life.
