Usher Wants to Be Your Stocking Stuffer


Usher’s new album, Raymond vs. Raymond (yes, that’s really what it’s called), was confirmed yesterday for a December 21 release date. That means it’ll join efforts from R. Kelly, Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Jimmy Buffett, Clipse, Snoop Dogg, Robin Thicke, Lil Wayne, and Mary J. Blige on the list of albums to be released between November 26 and December 25 this year. The music industry’s hopes of out-of-touch people purchasing shiny discs for surely disappointed relatives around the holidays: not just for Thanksgiving anymore! [Billboard]
