Ultimately, Zaytoven’s minimalist trap isn’t always the ideal match for Usher’s traditional R&B capabilities, but when they push both to their extreme, something magical happens.

There’s something frustrating ... about watching this singer make music that he hopes will fit with the Trap Soul generation.

So, I searched "cliche" and found this.

Google wasn't wrong.

A nice little album from Usher. There's nothing really special about this honestly. The Zaytoven production is actually pretty good and Usher doesn't sound bad, but as a whole the album comes and goes. Not the worst from these two, but definitely not the best.

There's absolutely no reason Usher should feel the need to conform to the trap standards of modern rap, but nonetheless he does so. The results are ultimately mixed, at it's best when he truly experiments and stylizes on the style.
Best Track: Say What U Want
Worst Track: Gift Shop (feat. Gunna)
