Get ready to have your mind blown: Today is Usher‘s 35th birthday. I’m shocked that he’s still so young. Usher has been creating music for so long that it kind of seems like he should be sufficiently middle-aged by now.
Here’s some OK! Old School for you: Usher was signed by L.A. Reid when he was just 13 years old. His first album was primarily produced by P. Diddy (then Puff Daddy). These three men have been running things since the mid-90s, is what I’m saying to you. Over the years, he’s racked up a ton of hits, and they put you in an instant good mood, even when their subject matter is a bummer. You make cheating sound fun, Usher, you devil! Listen now:
