Usher's ‘Hard II Love’ album cover is wack, but 'Missin U' sounds good ♫

Usher's eighth studio album 'Hard II Love' is due September 16th (artwork, below). The project, which was previously titled 'Flawed,' features 15 tracks.
Dude has been really consistent about using these ugly statues for all his promo and artwork this era. It's really off putting, and won't do much to encourage people to buy his new music. The album contains the recently premiered 'Missin U' and 'Champions,' for his big screen flick 'Hands of Stone,' arriving in theaters today. Previously released singles 'Crash' and 'No Limit' are also featured. As far as 'Missin U' goes, it's solid. A hip hop tempo beat, which slows right down to some oldschool R&B/soul fusion. On paper it's not suppose to work, but the transition is very smooth.

I don't really care for 'Champions' though. It's that typical soundtrack song about the sporting hero that has made ranks for himself. It switches between English and Spanish, and has a worldly vibe to it. Take a listen to both new tracks below!
