Usher: "Here I Stand" Billboard review

After a four-year break, Usher's fifth set is bursting with grown man, true-to-life tales like leaving his player ways behind ("Before I Met You"), falling in love ("Something Special," "Lifetime" and the title track), making love ("This Ain't Sex") and having a child ("Prayer for You," featuring a weeping Usher Raymond V, his new baby son). Grown-up relationships drive "His Mistakes," about a woman who is scarred by a past fling, the piano-and-drum-laden "Best Thing" featuring Jay-Z and "What's a Man to Do," which finds Usher belting about loving two women at once. Still, tracks like the naughty "Love in This Club," the sensual "Trading Places" ("You get on top/ tonight I'm on the bottom") and the Danja-produced "Appetite," about his desire for sex, confirm Usher still hasn't lost his young boy charm.
