My Way (album)
“My Way” is the third album by R&B singer Usher, but his two previous albums underperformed in sales. The album is purely a R&B album and showcased the vulnerable side of Usher. It contains songs about relationships and romance. It charted well and has gone top top 5 in United States. It has gone 6x platinum there.
You Make Me Wanna…
“You Make Me Wanna…” is the first single from “My Way” album. The song speaks about falling in love with a bestfriend, but at that time was in a relationship with another lady. The song was a big hit worldwide, thus, becamed the breakthrough single from Usher. The song peaked at number 2 in Billboard Hot 100, but was a bigger hit in United Kingdom where it went to number 1. The guitar riff added beauty in the song.
Rate: 8.75 out of 10
Nice & Slow
“Nice & Slow” is a beautiful R&B ballad that sounds very intimate. The story is also about the intimacy of a man and a woman. The music video tells a story about saving the girl the guy loves who is in danger and being kidnapped. I love how guitar was also played on the song, which was also heard from “You Make Me Wanna”. The song became Usher’s first single to reach number 1 in America, but was a modest hit internationally. It is, however, his second top 10 single in the US.
Rate: 8.25 out of 10
“My Way” was released as the third and final single from the same album title “My Way”. It was a R&B song which was more upbeat compared to his previous singles. The song was catchy but sounds behind his previous singles. It went to number 2 at the Hot 100, and became not just Usher’s third top 10, rather his his third top 2 hit in America.
