Record sales don't reflect an artist's relevancy according to Usher in his recent Breakfast Club interview.
Yes, he was still enjoying hit songs, but his album sales were gradually declining. I guess we're living in an era where accomplished, older artists try to adapt to this new, horrible music climate and unless you have Beyoncé's management / PR team, you get left in the wind. Bey is smart, because she is now aware that black artists no longer sell records the traditional way. She's found ways to keep her album sales up by captivating an audience. That, as well as making sure her team got her not one, but two Super Bowl performances in just three years behind one another. I ask again, why hasn't Usher's management team secured him as a headliner slot at the Super Bowl? He would kill it.
Usher danced it up some during his visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he performed latest single ‘No Limit.’
