Usher and Zaytoven Just Dropped a Surprise Album, “A”

An ode to the “A.”

Usher‘s back, and he’s repping his home city.

The R&B legend just dropped a surprise, collaborative album A, produced entirely by Atlanta hitmaker, Zaytoven.

The eight-track project hit streaming platforms hours before the artist announced the project online last night. Usher apparently deleted all posts on his Instagram account, and posted a series of connected photos and a trailer video yesterday, leading up to the album drop.

The opening track, “Stay At Home” feature’s a verse from Future, and the last track features a verse from Gunna. All-Atlanta-everything.
