Usher Raymond, an American singer, songwriter, and dancer, has revealed the tracklist for his forthcoming album titled Coming Home, which will premiere on February 9, 2024.

He teamed up with top artistes including Afrobeats finest Burna Boy as well as Nigerian record producer Pheelz, on the 20-track project.

“You’ve been asking…so I had to deliver…” Usher said as he put out the flyer on his X (Twitter) page on Wednesday. The list has Usher and Burna Boy on the opening song Coming Home while Pheelz appeared on track 10 titled Ruin.

Other guests on the project include H.E.R., 21 Savage, and Stone Kold Freak. Burna Boy and Pheelz are yet to comment on the latest collaboration.

The album is said to be Usher’s first solo project in over seven years after his 2016 compilation titled Hard II Love.  The Same Girl crooner has lots of recordings and recognitions to his credit. He has sold millions of albums and digital songs, making him one of the best-selling artistes of all time.

His followers are excited about the project, tipping some of the songs they would want to listen to when the album finally drops.

“I can’t believe you have made another album; that’s cool,” one of his fans wrote. “Finally, we got the lineup for his album. Thank you. I love all the songs on the album.

“I can’t wait to listen to them all. Thank you, Usher. But everybody knows what my favourite song is on the album. So far, it’s ‘Risk It All’,” another follower added.

Guest act Pheelz, born Phillip Kayode Moses, is a native of Ogun State, Nigeria, and has worked with musicians like Davido, Olamide, Wizkid, Fireboy DML, Teni, Tiwa Savage, and others.

His breakthrough as a producer was in 2012, when he produced the chart-topping singles by Olamide titled First of All and Fucking With the Devil, off the YBNL album. Pheelz is, however, best associated with the 2022 Tiktok viral single Finesse featuring BNXN formally known as Buju.
