Wow. That is beyond pitiful. But as I've said before I think he totally alienated his core fan base with the phony EDM bandwagon-jumping. He should've stuck with r&b even if it was 'out' at the time.
I remember discussing this during his last album (maybe because of weak sales or flop singles too, I can't remember) but people were saying then that his albums were going to divide his audience too much and deal both halves out. If you liked the EDM pop, you'd be put off by the R&B or vice versa if you were an R&B lover. You just don't know what you're investing in when you pick up his album anymore.
There's just not enough of a connection between those two genres to make it work. He really should have stuck to making R&B and trying to push it with cooler, more chart current sounds like The Weeknd or what not. He didn't need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
A shame in all honesty, as I regard Usher the last of the successful male R&B greats.
