Usher Raymond, on Friday, unveiled his long-awaited album and asked fans to share their favourite selections on the 20-track project with him.

“Aight aight… now that you’ve had some time…give me your top 3 songs so far by using #ComingHome,” he posted on his X (Twitter) page, hours after announcing the album.

About a week ago, he revealed the album’s tracklist, which features Burna Boy, Summer Walker, 21 Savage, Latto, Pheelz and H.E.R.

Made up of mainly seductive songs, the compilation has lived up to the hype and is a true representation of the energy channelled into producing the album after nearly eight years.

The opening song, Coming Home featuring Burna Boy, is a summary of all the soothing melodies lined up on the album, and it is one of the songs fans have selected as their favourites.

Other fine sounds on the album are Good Good, A-Town Girl, Cold Blooded, Kissing Strangers, Keep on Dancing, Risk it All, and many others.

Sometime last week, Usher released the single Ruin featuring Nigerian record producer Pheelz, and also put out an official YouTube video, which generated lots of positive feedback.

With the latest project, the award-winning singer will continue to reign as the King of RnB, having sold millions of albums and digital songs in the past, making him one of the best sellers of all time.

A lot of followers expressed excitement after he announced the release date for the album. Now, they expect him to make a “huge comeback” with Coming Home.

“Usher being relevant in 30 years since his debut isn’t something a lot of people can say, glad I can say I’ve witnessed him during this era,” one of his fans said about the project.

Later on Sunday, February 11, 2024, he would perform at Super Bowl Halftime Show in Las Vegas, dedicating the show to black musicians who supported his career throughout the years.
