Usher, once a dominant pop star, has now become a human avatar of late-’90s and early-’00s nostalgia. This has been a good look for him. This fall, Usher, playing himself, made a cameo during one of the most electric moments of the great crime flick Hustlers. He also duetted with exploding young R&B shit-talker Summer … More »
When this decade began, MP3s still reigned supreme. Now, at the end of it, a song is no longer even a file — it’s ephemera, on every streaming service and available to hear in myriad ways.

Black Coffee throws scerene drums and melody at 2000’s R&B chart dominator Usher, in an infectious new after hours groove titled, “LaLaLa,” landing on Ultra Records. This is the first single from the South African producer since his 2018 track “Wish You Were Here,” and similarly Usher’s first offering of 2019.
“La La La,” carried by plucks and twirling air, is guided nicely towards a familiar, soothing pop-inspired backdrop. Then, joined with a vibrant afrobeat appeal, the track comes together to make for a sensual dance between voice and rhythm. Swinging percussion elements accent the track’s crooning vocals as the chemistry seems effortless between Usher and Coffee.
Usher’s last effort came last year on a joint album alongside Zaytoven, A. In that time, Black Coffee collaborated with David Guetta, Drake, and Alicia Keys, as he continued cementing his undoubtable legacy as one of Red Bull Music Academy‘s proudest exports.

After skipping the 2019 iteration of the festival, Florida’s beloved Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival (OMF) will return in 2020 to Sunshine Grove. Soundslinger, the founders of OMF, have partnered with North American festival leader Insomniac to bring the destination multi-genre music and camping event back to its picturesque home on March 5-8, 2020.
Okeechobee is known for its eclectic festival lineups, which have included artists like Travis Scott, Usher, and Khalid all of the way to ODESZA, Skrillex, and Kings of Leon in the past. In addition to OMF’s three main stages—Be, Here, and Now—dance music fans will gravitate once again toward Jungle 51, a dusk-’til-dawn dance party nestled in the heart of the jungle that has hosted some of the biggest names in house and techno in recent years.
During the day, OMF attendees will again be able to experience Aquachobee Beach, situated in the scenic background where Sunshine Grove’s jungle meets the white sand beach, that will give Okeechobee-goers the chance to catch daytime live music sets while swimming and sunbathing.
Passes are on sale for all ticket and camping types beginning Aug. 23 at 10 a.m. ET here. The festival has released a video to get fans excited for the 2020 edition of the event, which potential festival-goers can view below.
