The new album of American R&B star, Usher Raymond, titled ‘Looking for Myself,’ has been officially released to Nigerian music fans on Tuesday.
The album, which is available in compact disc, is sold in the major Nigerian cities of Lagos, Abuja, Port- Harcourt, Enugu, and Ibadan.
It is also available in designated stores and retail outlets nationwide.
According to Usher, his seventh studio album is “a record that really gives people an experience”.
On the album, the seven-time Grammy winner takes bold steps into unexpected musical territory.
Working with a wide range of producers and collaborators — including Diplo, Swedish House Mafia, Max Martin, Will I. Am, and Luke Steele — Usher blended electro dance beats with his signature era-defining R&B, pop, and hip-hop sounds to create a style that goes beyond any defined category.
Nigerian entertainment and value added service provider, MComm, in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment Africa facilitated the availability of the album to Nigerian fans.
Speaking in Lagos early this week, Mcomm CEO, Chidi Okeke, stated that this historic partnership will form a foundation for potential future strategic alliances with Sony Music.
“This is a landmark partnership, with Nigeria being the first West African country to have an official international release from a Grammy winning US artist,” said Mr. Okeke.
“Music has and will always be the international medium of communication and Mcomm is all about delivering the very best of music, local and international, to music fans on our shores.
“There are also a number of exciting partnerships in the pipeline between Mcomm and other brands which are geared towards connecting Nigerians with their favourite music brands from everywhere in the world,” he added.
