In Brief

** 1/2 Usher, "My Way," LaFace.

September 28, 1997|Connie Johnson

Weak songwriting notwithstanding, it doesn't take a Dionne Warwick psychic friend to predict big things for this hip-hop heartthrob. At 18, Usher has star presence to spare on the booty-calling title cut and on the similarly themed "You Make Me Wanna." The sex emphasis wears thin, but only because Usher's songs aren't as interesting as their subject matter.
