New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Usher was the latest star to enter Radio
1's hallowed Live Lounge this morning. Singing live from LA, Usher
performed acoustic versions of some of his biggest hits, as well as the obligatory cover, including an amazing reggae twist on that '00s classic 'Love in This Club'.
The R&B superstar kicked off a promo run for the LP with a special performance on Friday (Sept. 2), and he killed it! Recorded in Los Angeles, for "Live Lounge's" 'Live in L.A' month-long series, the R&B superstar sat down for an interview with host Clara Amfo, where he spoke about the longevity of his career, fusing genres on his last album Looking 4 Myself, performing with live bands, the sounds of his upcoming album, getting a 'star' on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and more.
For his performance, Usher
delivered stripped-down acoustic versions of previous hits like “U Got It Bad” and “Climax,” plus his new single “Crash.” He switched up the vibe with a reggae version of “Love In This Club,” and even performed a cover of The Chainsmokers’ hit “Don’t Let Me Down.”
