Since the electronic, dance wave made its splash in the U.S., many R&B stars have taken the plunge. While some only tip-toed around music’s latest trend, others have gone waist-deep. Amid all the cries of “R&B is dead” and yells of “You’ve gone pop,” one artist has been at the forefront of most of the criticism (well, two if you include Nicki Minaj but that’s another story for another time) — Usher. The man, who gave us hits like “Nice and Slow,” the crunk-infused “Yeah!” and “Lil’ Freak,” was bit by the electrodance bug on his last album. “OMG” and the Pitbull-assisted “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” helped move Raymond v. Raymond to platinum status. While his pop audience cheered, his R&B core walked away.
On his latest project, Looking 4 Myself, the 33-year-old dove further into a grey area of what R&B music is. In a new interview with AOL’s The Boombox, the father of two addresses the criticism he’s received for “going pop” and also refutes the claims that R&B is dead.
