Usher released his seventh studio album Looking 4 Myself on June 8th and it did not sell as well as I expected although I thouroghly enjoyed the project. Usher has achieved it all by releasing six successful album, selling millions, winning Grammys and helping curate Justin Beieber’s career. Usher incorporates electronic dance music into his tracks on his latest album while still making it sound organic and not forced unlike a lot of current mainstream popular tracks. We posted the preview about the SHM produced track here, but now we’ve had it for some time and I’ve been able to give it some solid listens. On “Europhia” Usher got Steve Angello, Sebstian Ingrosso, and Axel Hedfors (Axwell) aka Swedish House Mafia to handle production. The dance track consists of great vocals, sick drops and that big room sound that you’d expect from the Swedish producers. Download/stream “Europhia” and buy Usher’s recent album on iTunes here. Features on the album include A$AP Rocky, Pharrell, Rick Ross & more. SHM also produced “Numb”, a more laid back track that is featured on the album. Enoy!

This year’s Summer Jam is particularly memorable because of Lil Wayne’s decision to pull Nicki Minaj from performing at Summer Jam 2012. Peter Rosenberg was supposedly “disrespecting” a female there for as an executive Wayne made a call to cancel last minute. Rosenberg passed a few comments about “Starships” but he was right that song is so tacky.
