Usher Steps Up To The Plate On ‘8701’

Anastasia Pantsios of the Cleveland Plain Dealer spoke with recently by phone where the singer admitted on ‘8701’, he had a new level of control not scene on his earlier work. “L.A. Reid, because of his relationships, was able to make certain people available to me,” said. “The first album he reached out for Puff and sort of gave my career to Puff. The second album he reached out to Jermaine Dupri and sort of gave it to Jermaine Dupri. As a young artist, you just follow what people tell you to do. You don’t ask questions; you just lay back and learn. This one, it wasn’t like that. I had the opportunity to step up to the plate and show what I had to offer.”
