Stream Usher’s New Album, ‘Hard II Love,’ A Few Days Early

Usher took a couple years break after his last album, Looking 4 Myself, arrived in the summer of 2012. He returned earlier this year, though, with two new singles — “Crash” and “No Limit” featuring Young Thug — almost exactly four years to the day after Looking 4 Myself landed in stores.

Since, the legendary R ‘n’ B artist has slowly shared more music. Future popped up on “Rivals,” and “Bump,” “Missing U” and “Champions” have all scattered themselves across the three months since the thought of a new Usher album became a reality with the two June singles.

Some of the songs throughout the promotion have been TiDAL exclusives (mainly because Usher was one of the handful of artists to sign the TiDAL “pact” that they’d help improve the listening experience for the fans, or whatever TiDAL goal was with that). That trend continues with his new album, Hard II Love, as it was released Monday night on the streaming service before it’s scheduled released worldwide on Friday.

Outside of Future and Thugger, the only credited feature comes on the intro, which is billed as a “conversation with Priyanka Chopra,” an Indian actress and former Miss World.

So if you’ve got TiDAL, you can stream it below. If not, you’ll have to wait until Friday until it (I assume) is released to all platforms.
