Usher :: Here I Stand

It's hard to believe that it's been four summers since everyone was pumping Yeah!!! from their car stereos. Since then Usher Raymond IV has gotten married and had a baby boy with wife Tameka Foster, so it makes sense that this newest album might be a little more mature. In some places this is true, but first single and chart topper In This Club is not one of those tracks. It's a pure club groove with Usher at his lady-loving best. The rest of the album shows a few different sides of grown-up Usher. Trading Places will satisfy the hip-hop heads, while Moving Mountains is classic Usher emotion where it sounds like he's singing for one last chance. New Daddy and husband Usher make an appearance too. In Prayer For You, he sings a little song to his young son, and Lifetime is a smooth ballad to his baby mama. With 18 tracks (one is hidden), Here I Stand is a nice comeback for Usher and we hope little baby Usher V knows that he's now the Prince of R & B because his dad is still the King.

Fun Facts

  • The album cover shows license plate 1126, his son's birthday.
  • Here I Stand features appearances by Jay Z, Beyonce, Jermaine Dupri, Young Jeezy, Will.I.Am, and Lil Wayne.
  • Usher has sold approximately 30 million albums worldwide.

When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
